Not On Twitter

Paul from LoadingReadyRun is here with an important public service announcement.

I haven't been on Twitter since before it was popular to not be on Twitter. And while it was popular to be on Twitter. And before Twitter existed. Actually, I've never been on Twitter. I am a true philanthropist!

This level of dedication is why I love you guys so very very much http://notontwitter.org/. It's a real website. Now I must hashtag to show my devotion

I've realised that whenever LRR mention a website that they made up, typing it in will usually either get you to a website they made, or redirect you to http://loadingreadyrun.com , which is dedication in the highest form

I'm a proud member of this initiative.

Man, I never knew being Not On Twitter could be as awesome as being Not On Cigarettes!

I'm ahead of the curve in two fields now! WOOHOO!

None of my friends ever posts anything to Twitter (me neither, pretty much), so we're all good, thanks!
I liked the episode idea, but wasn't funny enough for a full episode... :(

I've managed to avoid being on twitter, also managed to avoid having a smartphone... I'm so backwards, I'm almost a hipster... I can't believe that sentence actually was typed by me. I think I need to go on a 40 day fasting and think about the sin I've just committed.

I'm all for this! I'm not on twitter right now! #NotOnTwitter

That stinger.

Oh wow, that stinger.

If I only had a Twitter account, so I could tweet @ #NotOnTwitter.

I know this sketch is supposed to be comedy, but this is a real issue and real solution. I've been in exactly these situations and done exactly what happens in the video, with exactly that outcome. I use twitter only for one project, but never ever to interact or communicate with my friends in a mundane way.

I really, really wish this strategy was followed by more people. It happens as well on Facebook.

does also NOT being on facebook or having no you tube page ect score more?
what about things like not using tumblr or teamspeak or skype?
not having a smartphone?

for once, seeming to be clueless (in this kind of instance) might make me usefull lol

Ah, but you don't need to post anything on Twitter to see everything on twitter! Just hit the "Latest feeds" and BAM, you have all the information your friends are missing out on!

The tweet button at the bottom of the Not on Twitter webpage is genius

What a wonderful initiative to increase "oh wow, I've never heard of that" around the community.
I will continue to strive to be totally oblivious to random internet things.

... now I just need to not have watched this video until someone shows it to me.
to the time machine!

I have never had a Twitter account so I can't quit Twitter. I guess I've failed.

Thanks to you guys, I now know how to be a great friend. Although technically, I like to be on the side that tells everyone every interesting thing that has happened.

Wow, I never knew I was so charitable!

The background with the books are freaking me out. They're constantly moving, and I can't tell if Paul is moving with them or not.

That shit has to be a green screen... I'm at the bottom of the valley right now!

Was Paul taking a jab at HBO's Real Sex? The show featuring people who shouldn't be naked on camera? Because much of the time, I don't consider that porn, but severe mental disorders.

I have successfully avoided Twitter since its Inception. Unfortunately, many of my friends on Facebook post their Twitter stuff on my Newsfeed.

I have never used Twitter, may I join your club?

Instructions unlcear. i do not have twitter account thus it is impossible to delete it.

Twitter is evil. 140 characters is never enough to express oneself, even SMS messages had 480. It is also apparent that it brings the worst in people as people post things without consideration.

Just deactivated my Twitter account after watching this, no really. I never used it for anything anyways. Figured I might as well.

I'm on Twitter, I mainly use it to follow the Loading ready run account and some of the people in Loading ready run.

Though I am getting a fun sense of Schadenfreude from see all the people posting about not having Twitter accounts. I'll do ya one better, I don't have a cell phone. My anachronism level is higher than yours. In fact I don't even use computers. I'm posting this with the power of my mind. I actually live out in the woods using no tools whatsoever like an animal.

Now I know you're not actually on Twitter since you don't tweet at a hashtag.

Who needs twitter anyway, anything that's even remotely interesting that happens on there is these days reported as 'news' on certain websites.

:D

Maybe someone could make their username "NotOnTwitter" so that everyone else would just go completely mental trying to parse their tweets?

The stinger makes it. Also Paul is looking really snazzy with that Desert Bus beard, I hope he keeps the styling.

I'm glad that I don't have a Twitter account. Or a Facebook account. Does that make me a freak show? then if so, freak the night away!

I'm always trying to find ways to improve myself by doing less, and once again Loading Ready Run has helped me achieve the lowest of my aspirations.

Thanks guys!

Thanks for the NotOnTwitter program I came to realization that I had a Twitter account for no reason. So just closed it down just now... (after seeing the episode). Facebook is enough for me... Don't need 140 letters/numbers/symbols in my live.
