It’s been a week since Jim Traber quit Twitter after a mysterious tweet from his wife to one of his followers, and sadly it seems we are not any closer to cracking the case. For some reason Traber thinks we’re behind it, but we’re not. Who was @SportsGirl04Me? Why was Julie Traber so mad? Will Jim ever return to Twitter? And, hey, what about Perfect Strangers? Remember that show?
Sorry, lost my train of thought. This week we’re returning to a much more traditional version of Monday Morning Tweets, but if anyone happens to have any more information of Trabergate 2013, you know where to find us.
This week’s tweets are below the fold.
This will not be your typical edition of the Monday Morning Tweets. We will not feature strange tweets from Dean Blevins, awkward conversations with Linda Cavanaugh, and random exclamation points from Regular Jim Traber. This is because Traber deleted his Twitter account and Linda and Dean are just as stunned as we are.
The story and mystery surrounding this development is very bizarre. On Saturday night, because I have an awesome social life, I combed through Twitter and looked for tweets I could use for this week’s post. For whatever reason I decided to pick Traber’s first. The most recent tweet was about one minute old. It was sent by his wife, Julie. And it wasn’t very f-cking nice.
Check it out:
Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend full of Super Bowl watching and Super Bowl meal-eating and Super Bowl tweet-reading. It really is amazing how much better these Big Events are now that Twitter is a thing. It feels like you are sitting in a room watching the game all the cool and funny people you wish you knew in real life. At least, that’s what I tell myself. I live a sad life.
This is Monday Morning Tweets. You can find them after the jump. There will be no tweets about the Super Bowl. Mostly because I wrote this post before the game, even though you are reading it on Monday. I know, I just blew your mind. Technology is amazing. I hear Apple is even working on a telephone that doesn’t drop phone calls every few minutes. I’ll believe that when I see it, though.
This week marks the one-year anniversary of Monday Morning Tweets. And what a year it’s been! We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve hurt our brains trying to figure out just what it is Deano is tweeting. I’d like to thank all of the loyal MMT readers for coming back each week. A recent consumer survey found that this series is TLO readers’ 14th favorite recurring feature, right behind Guess What Bob Irzyk Had For Breakfast and right ahead of our bi-weekly series Cool Things About Warr Acres. Without you, dear readers, this amazing accomplishment never would have been possible! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This week’s tweets are after the jump.
Holy crap what is going on with the site?! Is it just me or does everything look totally different?
We hope you like the new look TLO. It’ll be the same site you’ve come to love and/or hate, just with a more up-to-date look. In accordance with the new design, Patrick has asked all of us contributors to “get our shit together” and “be slightly professional for once in your pathetic little lives, for god’s sake.” He also told me that some more changes may be coming.
I am nothing if not a team player, so I’d like to announce that I’m officially re-branding this column. From now on, Monday Morning Tweets will be known by it’s new, more corporate-friendly name Show Us Your Tweets. I can’t see any advertisers having any problems with that.
This week’s tweets are after the jump!
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
