My Twitter username is @drewmcomedy. I took this one because @DrewMichael was already in use. Not surprising. The domain www.drewmichael.com is currently being cyber-squatted (another blog on that later perhaps), so it’s to be expected that the Twitter username would be in use. Recently, I did some investigating and looked at @DrewMichael’s page. What I found was pretty awesome. It was about a year old, and there were only 12 tweets. (TWELVE!) 11 of them were tweeting at sports writers (like Chris Broussard and Buster Olney) about Boston sports. The other one seemed to be directed at a co-worker. (You can see the page here, however I suggest you read the blog first.) His picture is the default egg, for crying out loud! Here is a sample tweet from his page:
So, in an effort to reach out to him, I started a friendly campaign:
I was honestly surprised (and thrilled) at the response and assistance I got from my followers. Here are some of my favorites:
Now, I’ll just post the exchange. It’s pretty easy to follow. At the time of this exchange, his name was appearing “Drew Denerstein,” but he has since switched it to “Drew Michael.” I’m guessing his full name is Drew Michael Denerstein, but who knows. (For bonus points, take note of the dates as I let a few days pass and he comes crawling back.)
Oooh! He dropped $150 off the price! I ignored him for 2 days and then…
Ignore for three days…
$150? What happened to the $175?
“Good luck with the comedy.” As if this username is the only obstacle preventing me from achieving greatness! Three days go by…
Lawyer? What a Jew.
I checked my inbox and I had received this email:
Attached was a standard contract. I replied:
I have not heard back from him (yet). Something about this guy reminds me of an ex girlfriend I had. He keeps coming back with less and less self-respect until I don’t even want what he has to offer anymore.
