My love of Twitter should not surprise anyone. I heart Twitter and now my Twitter-life and my television-life have merged into a combustible superpower.
I'll back up to give you more context. Over the weekend while adding people to my "follow" list, I happen to come across the name @Betty_Draper. To those who don't watch Mad Men on AMC (and why not? It's awesome), that is one of the main characters. So I click on her icon and nearly lose it to realize it's "Betty" tweeting about her day, all timed to the recent developments on the show!
Suddenly Rachel and I are tweeting about Sunday's then-impending episode and suddenly Paul Kinsey, another character on the show, is following me on Twitter! Slightly scary but also cool. Then, yesterday I begin searching for more Mad Men characters and they are all on there! Even Don and Betty's kids, Sally and Bobby. How awesome is that?? Now I'm following Don, Peggy, Betty, Ken and Joan (who has a fab figure - you go girl). The epitome of my joy on this peaked yesterday when Don Draper started following my updates. I nearly fell off my chair in excitement. Don Draper wants to read my tweets about my snap-pants and hemp lip balm? Sold! This morning I also found out Bertram Cooper and Peggy are following me now too. This could be very bad.
If you guys are Mad Men fans, check this out because it's just beyond cool and entertaining. That or I'm easily amused - a little of both I believe. Even if you're not a fan, check it out because now I'm on a mission to find my other favorite TV characters. And if you don't watch Mad Men, give it a shot. But keep in mind, even though you won't understand everything, it's still enjoyable to watch. The smoking in offices! The martini lunches! Where did those days go?
On a separate note, I was able to break myself from my recent Twitter obsession last night to meet up with some awesome Chicago bloggers (Jenn, Jamie, Rachel, Dan, D and Joy) to celebrate Lacey's visit to the city. I also got to meet several awesome bloggers (Erin, Reckless Chef and Maiden Metallurgist) for the first time, time to update the Reader!
Okay I'm off to watch last night's Closer season finale and stalk more TV characters on Twitter. Watch out.
What TV character would you want to follow on Twitter?
