Countdown has begun. So, I got in touch with these guys who’ve been contracted by Current_ to make a spot about Twitter. We emailed, we met, and on Tuesday, they’re coming over to my apartment (at seven a.m.) to follow me around for 12 hours and see how I incorporate Twitter into my life.
So, you have to love film-making:
- I am only one of at least three people “featured” in this film. (Another is a guy who pretends to be someone else, which should be interesting, and another is Biz Stone who created Twitter…if they can get him.)
- The crew is spending 12 hours with me.
- The final cut is supposed to be about 3 minutes long.
What I need to do is clean up my apartment, or at least put all the “naughty bits” away from Jack’s homecoming. Anyway, this should be an interesting adventure. I keep forgetting to ask them something though, when they’re following me, how am I supposed to keep from tweeting shit like, “Cinematographer and my dog aren’t getting along,” or “This is the weirdest thing ever”? I think they want it to be as non-meta as possible…but we’ll see.
Mostly, I hope I don’t look like an ass. I realize I’m a snob, but I try to not be a jerk.
 Which I wasn’t super familiar with, despite the fact that my friend worked for them. But it’s a “newsy” site with mostly viewer-generated content in the form of spots. And, to be frank, it’s pretty awesome.
 A picture of a whale.
 So, is that his real name, or what.
 What your post is called on Twitter.
 Cameraman? I don’t want to be rude. Has Emily Post written anything on this?
