Day two of of Comedy Central‘s social media bonanza, #ComedyFest, focused on the contemporary movers and shakers of the comedic social media world. The goal of the first panel “I Figured Out The Internet: Secrets of My Twitter Success” was to focus on the power of microblogging (I think). Twitter sweethearts Jake Fogelnest (@jakefogelnest), Shelby Fero (@shelbyfero), Ted Travelstead (@trumpetcake), Amber E. (@rare_basement), and Julieanne Smolinski (@BoobsRadley) made up this crazy panel. I don’t know that there was a lot of sage advise bestowed upon the Twitter masses but the microbloggers did show why they stand out among the crowd. Between the rice pimping, allergies, and Gangnam style it’s a miracle some questions were actually answered.
Okay, question for everyone on the panel! What is the one piece of advice you’d give to people for running a great Twitter? #ComedyFest
Poor Julieanne Smolinski was grappling with some series allergies which she demonstrated with an “eye opening” photo ( I will spare you). However she did note that “Twitter is like Grindr for people with seasonal allergies or rice endorcement deals.” She hit it right on the money! It’s a good thing the proceeds of this panel discussion went to fund MS. Phew!
