Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season. This is our first normal Monday Morning Tweets in awhile. I wonder if we can remember how to do it. In case you missed it, the last couple weeks we documented what Christmas-blizzard-that-wasn’t was like on Twitter and our year-end retrospective of Dean Blevins’ tweets.
So enjoy those if you haven’t, already, and then read this week’s tweets, which are after the jump.
Good morning, folks. It’s the last day of 2012. It was a year full of historic moments: Barack Obama was re-elected president of the United States, NASA’s Curiosity rover successfully landed on Mars, and The Lost Ogle launched a new series called Monday Morning Tweets.
As MMT grew, it became clear that one man would be the star of the show. A renaissance man in the truest sense, Dean Blevins wears many hats: former college quarterback, journalist, and the best on-air urinator this market has ever seen. In 2012 Dean added one more line onto his resume: Twitter superstar.
After the jump, we look back at the year that was @DeanBlevins.
Hi there, everyone! I hope everyone had a great Christmas. This week instead of trying to decipher what Dean Blevins has to say, we’re going to try and re-create the run-up to yesterday’s Oklahoma City Christmas “snowstorm.”
The weather week started off as it should, with Lord Gary England announcing that there may be a Winter Weather Event. Smartly, he refused to make a definitive prediction.
Oklahoma: LIke really windy &cold Thu morn. Christmas storm still in the plansbut timing and intensity not firmed up yet.. Jump Back!

Like the wise man that he is, Lord Gary would not weigh in on the storm again before Christmas. The rest of the local weathermen, well… the same cannot be said for them. They let the hype begin:
Before we start with this week’s meaningless in-the-whole-scheme-of-things tweets from random Oklahoma “celebrities,” let me encourage you to donate to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund that was created by the United Way of Western Connecticut. It’s one small way to help the families of victims and all the other people affected by Friday’s tragedy.
This week’s tweets are after the fold.
At this point, I think everyone is clear how this works. Local “celebrities” tweet things out to the world and then I write about those tweets, because this is 2012 and that’s how the world works in 2012, apparently. The future is now, people.
This week’s edition features such luminaries as Dean Blevins, Brian Bosworth, and Channel 5′s Maggie Stokes. Read them all after the jump.
