The Offensive Tweet

Vooza’s Twitter account offends everyone. Meet the man who’s responsible – and couldn’t care less.

Okay, I'm getting tons of emails and like, blog posts all about this tweet.
All I want to know is who wrote the tweet.
>> You don't have to answer that.
>> I'll answer the question.
You want to know if I wrote that tweet?
>> I think I'm entitled to that.
>> You want to know if I wrote that tweet?
>> I want the tweet.
>> You can't handle the tweet.
Son, we live in a world of words.
Sometimes those words have to be turned into jokes.
Who's going to do it?
Salon?
Huff-Po?
Those of us who tweet jokes have a greater responsibility
than you could possibly fathom.
You weep for those who are offended, and you condemn those of us who make
off color jokes because you have that luxury.
You have the luxury of not knowing what I know.
That sometimes, people getting offended,
though mildly unfortunate, is a byproduct of social media.
And the tweets I write, while grotesque and
incomprehensible to you, they get shared.
They get shared a lot.
So you don't want me to apologize.
because deep down, in the places you don't talk about at
networking events, you want me writing these tweets.
You need me writing these tweets.
And I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself
to someone who rises and sleeps under the page views I generate,
while questioning my means of generating them.
I'd rather you just said thank you and went along your way.
Otherwise, you try coming up with an original thought
in less than 140 characters, and see if it goes viral.
Either way, I don't give a damn what you find offensive.
>> Did you write that tweet?
>> I did the job I was sent to do.
>> Did you write that tweet?
>> You're god damned right I wrote that tweet!
>> Okay, because it's doing amazing.
>> Oh, wow, that's so good to hear.
Thank you so much.
>> Really good stuff.
>> All right, do you know how many re-tweets we've gotten,
how much traffic we've generated?
>> Well, there's plenty more where that came from.
>> Please, whatever offensive stuff you want to say, bring it on.
>> You know what, see you all in the Twitterverse.
