All best to you, Jack a/k/a Tiger D ’56 Kristen says: April 6, 2012 at 8:07 am The 1st person I have followed on Twitter … and always my favorite Patricia Parulekar says: April 3, 2012 at 1:14 pm I follow mostly journalists and public policy types on twitter and read about finance, health policy, the Mid-East…..so BadBanana laughs are badly needed Beth Bowles says: April 2, 2012 at 8:54 pm I’ve been on Twitter about as long as BadBanana and he is the real deal. Proof not all talent is just in So Cal. I’m a native So Cal and I’m not surprised Hollywood is on to him and so happy they are. Ad Men are often very funny thinkers. Robert says: April 2, 2012 at 5:26 pm BadBanana rocks and is funnier than Tim Siedell…a true pioneer of Twitter. Good show! Stacy says: April 2, 2012 at 2:58 pm *children Surprised you didn’t mention the other Twitter developer, Evan Williams, is also from NE. Stacy says: April 2, 2012 at 2:41 pm Thank you for this show. I grew up in small town NE and now live in Minneapolis (it’s where the pleasing childen of the family move) I love how he doesn’t knock NE and I’m happy he’s comfortable in CA. Brian Crouch says: April 2, 2012 at 2:12 pm I think of Tim Seidell as the first genuine Twitter star. I really can’t think of any other individual who has gone from Twitter into mass media fame purely from the content of their tweets. You are indeed a comedy writer. I can imagine any stand-up comedian getting a great set just utilizing Tim’s tweets. I hope Jay Leno hires him. Ben Z says: April 2, 2012 at 12:31 pm Very interesting interview and story.
