I unfollowed him, his constant tweeting the same unfunny shit from a few hours before is annoying as fuck, now i know my TWITTAR! is not any better but im a member of the public and im allowed to be a picky cunt.
Ok I finally got around to reading them. Definitely not thread-worthy. He's big on inside jokes, and even bigger on people not getting inside jokes.
It stems from the show's original rise to popularity. When they got syndicated to Philly, a lot of people hated them and would call to tell them so. He had a love-hate relationship with those people's hatred of them. He noticed that the more things he did/said that annoyed people because they "didn't get the joke", the more they hated him and hate was good because it spread the show. So to this day he equates this type of bullshit with success.
I'm not crazy about the Opie twitter, but I follow about 150 people on it. Maybe it's a lack of OCD, but Opie tweeting absolute garbage for attention and reaction, doesn't bother me in the slightest. Since the next tweet is someone else with a cool picture, or a bit of news, or funny comment. Then by Monday, while I'm taking a shit, a nice troll vid by Opie I can love or hate.
