Bay don't Twitter

04.14.2009

For a brief explosive moment, it looked like TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN director/destructor Michael Bay had joined the growing ranks of famous types keeping interested parties privy to tiny thoughts via craze-of-the-week "networking" service Twitter.

Turns out it was yet another case of rampant counterfeit online personalities. "I will never have a Twitter account. Twitter. Never. What a waste of time," Bay himself posted at his message board (another method of updating fans and followers with short messages, ironically).

While it seems curious that the master of the three-second edit can't be bothered tapping through 140 characters, I suppose that's time better spent slicking something in sweat, filming it in slo-mo and then detonating it with a salvo of swarmer rockets (with metal riffs and CGI added in post, naturally).

This isn't the first time the internets have seen a Fake Bay -- over the years, his lawyers (which I imagine are all smoking hot chicks in glasses and lingerie) have already brought the hammer down on other spurious Twitter accounts and blogs, which contained some often believable and occasionally brilliant posts.

Extra Tidbit: Whether Twitter or Bay's movie output brings us quicker to Idiocracy remains to be seen. Hail Michael Bay.

Idiots ?

I think it's the idiots that jump onto every new wave of social networking. Why don't people actually do anything anymore but stare into a little device all day long. How truly important are these messages ? Fucking sheep following the herd without a original thoughts in their heads. People fucking test messaging like a robotic drone in the grocery store even, not even paying attention to where they are walking. Idiots. " Hey im in the store now. where are you ? oh ya. What are you going to do

What are you going to do ? Stupid ! Dumbing down of society right in front of our own eyes.
And ever hear of a personal assistant ? You really believe you were talking to Johnson himself ? Come on now. All the celebrities/athletes say they Twitter to make themselves seem up to date and current ( cool ) You know how busy these people are ? Busier than you and me, and I, the normal Joe, has a hard time fitting all this new shit into my schedule, you think these celebrities are sitting down on their down time tweeting some person they don't even know ? That's what a personal assistant is for. David Letterman admitted on his show he wouldn't have the slightest idea how to do it, but his personal assistant runs some by him for a couple of minutes. That's what most are probably doing.
It's great the name they used because Twitter is for twits !

Great for Networking...

I personally find that that twitter is an amazing networking tool. Granted that you find the actual people and not fake profiles. Just the other day I was talking with Rian Johnson. How else would I be able to do that at this stage in my career? What I can't stand is the race to get the most followers. That shit has to stop. It doesnt prove anything. Myspace did that...

If you do'nt like it dont use it. Just don't bash it like this. You sound like idiots.

Me neither !

Who has time for this shit ? Facebook, Digg, Myspace, Twitter. Just having a personal e-mail account can be a lot of time. How many of these thinbgs do you have to keep up with to stay cool these days ?

Enough with fucking Twitter. I wonder how much they paid to have it brought up/discussed NON-STOP in the media in recent months. Man, Twitter should be called Twatter.

Twitter sucks so much, so great to hear one of my fav (visual) directors thinks so too.

That Onion article was hilarious and probably not far off from his actual process.

haha

Finally something Michael Bay and I agree on besides big ass explosions, hot women, and the fact that Bruce Willis has saved all of our lives at some point. Regarding his team of the hottest lawyers out, don't forget, these hottest women in the world, wear glasses because they are also the smartest women in the world. 2nd best Dark Knight script.

I've never liked Michael Bay's films, but he's said a couple things recently that have made him come off as very rational. Good man.

Twitter may be the latest social cancer, but it won't last if people have the mind to realize how inane it all is.

I'm not holding my breath.
