Like it or not, Twitter is here to stay – for now. We’re having fun with it, as it’s an easy way to update you on stuff that may not make it to the front page, and in the three weeks since we’ve started the Sailing Anarchy Twitter page, we’ve gotten more than 500 of our geekiest Anarchists to follow the SA feed.
Twitter is notoriously hard to regulate, and one of the by-products of that difficulty is the growth of numerous spoof and parody tweets. Our favorite to date has to be the one that people are accusing us of creating – SailScuttlebutt. While we wish we’d thought of it first, it ain’t us, but it still has us pissing ourselves with laughter throughout the day. If you created this tweet spoofing a twat, let us know and we’ll send you some SA swag.
The forum alerted us to another spoof tweet that is just as funny – the Ernesto Bertarelli Tweet. Read it and laugh your ass off, and again – let us know who you are and win some swag for being so clever at a twat’s expense. Here are a couple of ‘Ernesto’s’ recent updates:
We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little Oracles. Wicked, tricksy, false!
One Cup to rule them all, One Cup to find them,
One Cup to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In Geneva where the Shadows lie
"contempt of court"? What a bunch of miserable bastards those judges are. Contempt? American justice is bullshit.
URGENT REQUEST! All you Sailing Anarchy people can please just unenroll from my twitter. This is none of your business. No more Anarchy. eb
