As promised folks, The Perfessor (that’s me) is Twittering. I’ve just been doing it for a short while, but if you want to keep up on all things Perfessor, then you’ll want to go to @Funnybook_City and check out all of the observations and witticisms that roll off our keyboard.
That’s right, plus, whenever we post our movie reviews, and funnybook articles, we’ll be cluing you in on those as well, so don’t delay, you might miss something important (we sincerely doubt it, but humor us and check us out anyway).
It’s only fitting we post this apology to Taylor Swift. It’s the final Tweet in a series of Tweets, done a year after the event:
Kanye posted nearly 100 tweets in a little over two hours. It started innocently enough with: “Man I love Twitter… I’ve always been at the mercy of the press but no more… The media tried to demonize me.”
Then it moved on to: “Remember in Anchor Man when Ron Burgandy cursed on air and the entire city turned on him? But this wasn’t a joke. This was & is my real life.”
And: “People tweeted that they wish I was dead… No listen. They wanted me to die people. I carry that. I smile and take pictures through that.”
Then he finally brought up Taylor: “I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that’s so beautiful and I want her to have it. If she won’t take it then I’ll perform it for her.”
Later: “When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE … I take the responsibility for my actions … I am not a bad person. Even in that moment I was only trying to do good but people don’t always need my help … Beyonce didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.”
After several more it ended with, “I’m sorry Taylor.”
Kanye has gone Twitter silent since then.

It’s pretty hard to make a decent spoof film about Twitter, because everyone already gets the joke. Okay, jokes. There’s pretty much just the two jokes about Twitter, and they’ve been played out.
But just in case you haven’t imagined all the possible jokes you can make about people who Twitter, here’s two and a half minutes of your life you won’t spend Twittering. However, since the YouTube video is two minutes and 45 seconds long, I can imagine what you’ll be doing when the video’s creator comes onscreen and thanks his mother, his sister… well, I lost interest after that.
