Even simple "winding up", the very essence of "trolling", I fall down at.
So when I recently took on the roll of a twitter troll I really was massively out of my depth. It all started with this...
Yes, the popular comic Dilbert had made a reference to a specific twitter user by username, @coffeesixhairs.
By some fluke of timing, when I saw this I went to twitter and somehow the username was available, so I got it. I am @coffeesixhairs!
I decided the name would be "Anonymous Troll" to match the cartoon, and then what should I pick for an image? Well I went for Wally in dark glasses as that would clearly be enough to fool the average PHB.
So I don't really know what to do next - I am not naturally a troll. At least one follower thinks I am in fact Scott Adams, and I feel bad about that. And that is why I am coming clean, to be honest.
Maybe I should sell @coffeesixhairs? Or give it away? Or just delete it? Moral dilemma!
P.S. @coffeesixhairs has 280 character tweeting!!!!
