I’ve been thinking about how to improve my Twitter recommendations lately. Thinking much the same as @TeeMonster has discussed in his post on Follow Friday. My answer was to do a single, long form recommendation here in my blog, but linked to by my Twitter feeds. It was somewhat hard for me to figure out whom to spotlight in this, my first FollowFriday post. When I started looking through the list of folks that I follow, I found that a lot of the people that I interact with on Twitter have protected their posts. While that is their right, it seemed a little wrong for me to start off with someone that my readers wouldn’t be able to see and appreciate in the same way that I do. So, I had to choose someone with a public Twitter feed. This time.
So, why should you follow @muskrat_John on Twitter? This feed belongs to John Kovalik, the cartoonist behind the Dork Tower webcomic and comic books, the illustrator for the game Munchkin, in all it’s various and bizzare forms and expansions, and of the Apples to Apples card game. So, John obviously has some creative ability. And probably too much time on his hands.
John also has a deadly comic wit and a love of puns that are capable of requiring medical attention. And he’s not afraid to use them. John manages to balance out his feed with humorous observations, puns, geek commentary, and a dash of self-promotion. He’s good brighten up your day, or confuse you with an obscure geek reference.
So take a peek at what @muskrat_John has to offer and decide for yourself. I’ll be back next week with another Follow Friday recommendation.
