Get ready for more trolling.
There are two reasons for this post:
- I find Twitter trolling fun.
- The amount of Twitter trolling I’ve done lately is enough for a mini post.
- Everyone is allowed to be a narcissist once in a while.
- I can’t count.
So, as you may have gathered from my repeat references to Twitter trolling, I’ve been doing some trolling lately. On Twitter.
I have a bit of a history with email trolling of scammers and eBay trolling of shady salesemen. It was only a matter of time before I moved on to Twitter.
I don’t just troll people willy-nilly, though. Not yet, anyways.
Instead I find those I deem worthy of a trolling treatment. Who are they? So far there were two types:
- The annoying spammers of wise or inspirational quotes.
- Companies, because down with the man and all that stuff.
- I made you think I was going to do the math joke here again, but then I didn’t.
Since I have recently unfollowed a lot of specifically these types of accounts, I didn’t have any to pick from in my Twitter stream. Instead, I had to actually go out and search for them. I have no life.
I’m not censoring any names, since all of these conversations are publicly available on Twitter. Here goes:
Nokia are amazed by their own product. Shocking.
Doing things yourself or doing yourself? Don’t answer that!
Potential cross-platform issues.
Rhyming for success.
It’s a legitimate question.
Dictionary to the rescue!
When you assume you make an ass of your marketing.
Insanity breeds inspiration.
Creating stuff with your mind, X-Men style. They did that, right?
I know who I am!
That’s all for now, but the annoying Twitter troll in me lives on. Who knows what the future brings?

I have this notion that trolling is BAD. But you made me laugh with this post and you just break my belief! Now I don’t know if the sun will still shine tomorrow. 🙂
See? Now everything is upside down now! What next, some kind of a reality show about teenagers locked inside a hotel for weeks?! Ridiculous!
Good son/good husband… that is a really great point. Did you get any response to that?
Great points are my specialty! And yeah the lady in the conversation answered that there’s always room in Alabama. I trust she knows what she’s talking about?
Funny stuff! 🙂
Just remember that ..”it takes two to tango…”
And you can’t judge a book by its cover!
And don’t cry over spilled milk at the break of dawn.
I may have gotten two mixed up.
Troll on, my friend!
Yes mam, will do!
Dang, you are bold! I just ignore them. Or unfollow. Or block. 🙂
I do all of those too. Then I hunt them down again to bother them with my trolling. Life is good!
I think @mindblowingfacts owes you a beer… And also Nokia.
Nokia owes me a beer too. I once owned one of their shitty phones.
You…what?! I can’t express how sorry I am. Nobody should have to go through the ordeal of owning a Nokia phone.
Too funny! 😀
Thanks, enjoy the laughs!
I miss you! This came across my Facebook feed this morning, and it’s exactly what I needed 😀 Twitter definitely needs trolling. My favorite? The people who spam you with a website that’s supposed to get you thousands of Twitter followers a day, and they only have a few hundred themselves. Keep up the good work!
Ha, indeed. Irony has never been so blatantly obvious.
I’m glad I could entertain…it’s been a while, no? Hope you’re keeping busy with the writing!
Have been very busy…not enough writing though. Hope to get some done during the summer break!
Dear Daniel. Have I ever told you I love you? Or was that just in blurred memory of a previous life? So hard to tell. Anyway, keep up the trolling. You’re hysterical! 😉
Love is in the air indeed. I do recall us Prancercising in the open fields, free from stress, galloping towards the sun. We were also unicorns. Yeah, could be a blurred memory of some sort, really.
Thanks, sir. Glad you’re enjoying the juvenile gibberish. Hope all is well on your end!
*Beep* I’m now enjoying a beer. It occurs to me that it would be a blast to share a beer with you someday. (Well, not the SAME beer, but… anyway…) I don’t know if I’ll ever make it to Denmark (I tried once, but hitch-hiking in the snow had it’s limits, and I never made it), but if you ever find yourself on North America’s west coast, I’ll buy you your very own beer. Cheers! 🙂
You’re onto something, dude. Even though in my case it would be Rum’n’Cola instead of a beer. Or literally any other drink instead of a beer, since I just don’t like the beer taste (I know, I know).
But for sure – if you’re ever around these parts you keep me posted. And vice versa, of course.
These were awesome. I’m glad I follow you.
Why thanks, happy to entertain!
Remind me not to tweet out any quotes. Unless they’re my own, of course, because, as you point out: “Everyone is allowed to be a narcissist once in a while.” (And Lord knows I was one on my own blog today…)
You are brave to do what so many of us would love to do. Have any of these people/spam bots responded to you?
Not many responses, because, honestly, who wants to respond to trolls? I sure don’t!
But the two that have responded were actually quite positive and found the trolling funny. So hey, win-win, I guess?
A troll who uses his actual headshot. Well played, well played.
Yup. I’m a brave, counter-intuitive troll.
