The Ticket’s Epic Twitter Battle

Epic Twitter Battle

The Musers discussed the 5th anniversary of the first ever tweet on Twitter a few days ago.  Part of this discussion revolved around the obsession some ticket staffers have over the number of people following them.  Later that day, BaD Radio also burned a segment chronicling Dan’s struggles with his new twitter account.  I thought I’d throw up that audio, as well as a table of all of the Ticket twitter handles I could think of so that P1’s could figure out who to follow, and what the twit-pecking order is of ticket personalities.  The table is sorted by number of followers and is current as of sometime around 11:00pm of March 23rd, 2011…do I know how to party, or what?

If I missed anyone, feel free to leave a comment.  There are *many* fake accounts, but I’m pretty sure that all of the ones below are real (except for maybe the Teebox guys).

    Who uses the handle “TicketRadio”?

    • March 24, 2011 09:38 Reply

      @TicketRadio is an avid listener, but not officially affiliated with the Ticket (or the UnTicket). He also follows a fair bit of social media stuff too. His bio reads:
      Do you like this gig? That wasn’t the question! P1’s for 1310 The Ticket Jorts Radio. (Obviously an UNofficial account. official account: @dfwticket)

    In my effort to stay off the grid this makes me happy.

    I got on Twitter last week. Although I’m only there to keep up with a few folks, and to post Muser Mumbles, which I have yet to do. So far, Shoopie and one p1 (I think) are following me. It’s a start.

    Speaking of twitter… is anyone following @thefaketiger’s prodding of D.A. Points at the moment?

    I just started following Casey Millen (@CMillen1310). Figured you might add him to the list of Twitter peeps.
