The Black Laser on Twitter.

What? You didn’t know? For realz? Yes, The Black Laser is on Twitter. It’s been over in the sidebar for ages. I’ve only recently started exploring it for what it is, though, and I have to say I am having fun with it. It’s totally ridiculous. I don’t really think you can convey all that much worth caring about in 160 characters, but it’s fun to drop little lines of bullshit once in a while. If I need more than 160 characters…well, that’s what The Black Laser’s for, right?

I’ve discovered something about Twitter that I genuinely enjoy: hashtag games. If you don’t know, a hashtag is a little bit of extra text on a tweet that looks like this -> #theblacklaser. Users can then search by the hashtag. A hashtag game is when a lot of people post things using the same hashtag. I like to troll these games.

I know, I know. Joe, aren’t you a little old for trolling strangers on the interwebs? To that I say, No. Not at all. And besides, I’m not being mean, just fucking around. Here are some samples of what I mean.

See? Nothing rude. I just like to provide a little contrast to the mostly banal, boorish comments. It makes me laugh. If you’d like to play hashtag game trolling with me, follow me on the Twitter and we can play. It’s fun!

    This is so FUNNY.

    I’m not sure I’m clever enough to play

    Sure you are. Just write something that makes sense but is ENTIRELY unlike what other people are writing. People mostly write STUPIDLY obvious things. Write something else.

      Dear Mikey, I thought you’d enjoy my Star Trek joke. Sincerely, Joey.

    Dear Joey, I love your jokes more than anything. But I’m reverting to luddite status now that I’m approaching 40. In just a few short years I won’t no longer know what them damn fool kids are messin around with on their talkmachines and picutre boxes. Love Mikey.

    For a moment I thought you were actually taking all the hashtag bullshit seriously. Such a relief.

Tell me what you think.
