Simpsons showruner Al Jean recently joined the social dating app “Twitter,” and has already committed many a faux pas. It’s always funny to see new users struggle with the learning curve, doubly so if it’s someone semi-famous.
Here’s a DEVASTATING TAKEDOWN of his initial tweets from friend-of-the-site hammster, with links added:
his first tweet he refers to joining twitter as “entering twitter”. entering.
his second tweet tells me to watch a couch gag on youtube without linking to it
his third tweet he misspells excited as “exicted”
the only tweet he has favourited is a manual retweet of a tweet from the official simpsons account RATHER THAN THE ACTUAL TWEET
Some additional highlights that have occurred since then:
- Misspelling the name of his employee, Tress MacNeille (later blamed on typing too fast)
- Burying upcoming episode news in replies to others
- REPLYING TO SOMEONE ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WEBSITE (seriously, wtf)
- This apparently unprompted tweet that was either supposed to be a reply to someone, or he’s just thinking out loud about Marge’s boobs apropos of nothing
And my favorite tweet from him so far, after frenemy-of-the-site Wikisimpsons attempted to spring a GOTCHA question on him:
@Shorester @simpsonswiki Are we seriously having a discussion of what color the Mulk is? All my Twitter dreams have come true.

Well, I have to say, he’s improving with each tweet. Heck, he’s already a better twitterer than his boss James L. Brooks, whose feed is occasionally taken over by whatever this was.
