Finally: The official Hot Air Twitter feed is now live

posted at 4:55 pm on June 17, 2013 by Allahpundit

It’s real and it’s spectacular. And yes, yes, it’s long overdue. What can I say except that it’s hard for a beta male to be “social”? (Actually, someone had squatted on the account handle and it took time to get it handed over.)

Follow us at @hotairblog. Posts will be tweeted automatically as soon as they’re published here, so if you’re a Twitter junkie and want to be pinged when something new is up on the site, that’ll do the trick. We’d also be grateful for help in spreading the news. You can do that either by retweeting the tweet posted below or retweeting the link to this very post once it’s up at the hotairblog Twitter account.

I don’t want to leave this post as a pure bleg, so here’s something to meditate on after you’re done retweeting.

NSA loves you even more now.

Schadenfreude on June 17, 2013 at 5:05 PM

I’ll get excited when HA announces the new custom AP dashboard bobblehead.

Erich66 on June 17, 2013 at 5:05 PM

WOOT!

E L Frederick (Sniper One) on June 17, 2013 at 5:05 PM

It’s about time, I was getting worried…

right2bright on June 17, 2013 at 5:05 PM

I see Ed is trying to get around next year’s Lenten sacrifice by using a technicality.

blammm on June 17, 2013 at 5:06 PM

Great, now surprise me with a tweet of your real name.

nobar on June 17, 2013 at 5:07 PM

“Do you trust me” –Obama to the kids

Schadenfreude on June 17, 2013 at 5:07 PM

Finally something on BO’s intelligence level.

txag92 on June 17, 2013 at 5:11 PM

Oh whew. I thought it was a new open registration.

conservative pilgrim on June 17, 2013 at 5:13 PM

The mobile app needs lots of work…jus sayin.

d1carter on June 17, 2013 at 5:14 PM

Obama couldn’t even paint within the lines for 12 seconds.

I’d hate to see how badly he does at cutting paper.

portlandon on June 17, 2013 at 5:14 PM

It’s not too late for BHO to be an artist…maybe he could do “Benghazi At Sunrise”…you know from the video.

d1carter on June 17, 2013 at 5:15 PM

Wait a minute here. That twitter account has been listed every time I hit the tweet button for an article. I always used your twitter accounts however, but come on!

Are you guys saying that you just finally made the account or linked to this blog?

BigGator5 on June 17, 2013 at 5:19 PM

kool beans…only I don’t do twitter but have fun.

workingclass artist on June 17, 2013 at 5:21 PM

d1carter on June 17, 2013 at 5:14 PM

Whatever happened with that? I put it on my phone and Kindle, but I still default to the actual website.

Doughboy on June 17, 2013 at 5:21 PM

And in his first official HotAir tweet, he uses ‘FYI’ as a noun. That takes skill.

preallocated on June 17, 2013 at 5:25 PM

Wow. Welcome to 2009.

This is about as novel as turning the Green Room into a redundancy.

MadisonConservative on June 17, 2013 at 5:27 PM

Cool, just as I was turning off permanently my twitter account. Impeccable timing as always.

I woulda used 411, but that’s only ’cause I’m down with my homeboyz.

John the Libertarian on June 17, 2013 at 5:28 PM

23 comments in 30 minutes…who can possibly keep up? these kids with their new fangled…things

DanMan on June 17, 2013 at 5:29 PM

How about simply updating the blog with a Reply option so we dont have to “quote” and copy everything…zoom into 2008 now!

hillsoftx on June 17, 2013 at 5:32 PM

And don’t forget to follow AP as well. Nice to see you tweeting again.

kim roy on June 17, 2013 at 5:32 PM

Oh and Ed, Erika, Jazz, MKH, are all on twitter as well.

kim roy on June 17, 2013 at 5:33 PM

Sweet. So is it preferable to RT that feed or to use the Twitter button from here?

theperfecteconomist on June 17, 2013 at 5:35 PM

(Actually, someone had squatted on the account handle and it took time to get it handed over.)

Sorry. Somehow I missed this line.

Well, at least you have it now. Better late than never.

BigGator5 on June 17, 2013 at 5:36 PM

Funny, Obama reminds me of another artist who got “sidetracked” by politics.

Good Solid B-Plus on June 17, 2013 at 5:36 PM

OMG u r sooooo kewl !!!

TXUS on June 17, 2013 at 5:39 PM

Whats Twitter ??

Won’t even have a cell phone.

Never had a pager either.

Texyank on June 17, 2013 at 5:39 PM

Way to stay on top of the trends

DarkCurrent on June 17, 2013 at 5:45 PM

You know, if he signs up for obamacare, he’ll be free to pursue his dream of being an artist…or a writer…or…somethin’.

Solaratov on June 17, 2013 at 6:06 PM

Allah, you need to pop your handle pic as the background….

or maybe the dead cat bounce pic

Doughboy on June 17, 2013 at 5:21 PM

Dunno…it is very difficult to use.

d1carter on June 17, 2013 at 6:19 PM

Wiki:

Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey and by July, the social networking site was launched. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with over 500 million registered users as of 2012

Laggards?

socalcon on June 17, 2013 at 6:21 PM

Does this mean AP’s cat will now be featured in Vines?

Twitter is to the internet what gastroenteritis is to the human bowel

Sorry to hear that.

So, it is confirmed:
Quite a few twits at Hot Air.

hillsoftx on June 17, 2013 at 5:32 PM

I might be in the minority but I actually prefer HotAir’s commenting format to the ones with Reply options. On heavily “replied” threads all those indentations make it annoying. Also, we all tend to talk to each other as a group. Think of QOTD and all the music stuff. Just my 2cents. :)

mrsmwp on June 17, 2013 at 7:04 PM

Who’s Twitter?

It’s free, but they make it up in volume.

Akzed on June 17, 2013 at 7:12 PM

Good deal..:)

Dire Straits on June 17, 2013 at 7:52 PM

I don’t “tweet”, so I guess I won’t be commenting much anymore…

Khun Joe on June 17, 2013 at 7:53 PM

OK, so I’m a twit. I have the attention span of a gnat during the day job and as much as I’d love to participate in the marathon fun that the QOD threads seem to be, said day job makes me incoherent at that time of day.

I’ll take what I can get no matter the label :-)

SteveInRTP on June 17, 2013 at 7:58 PM

Only if you follow me back. ;P

If you start painting Blythe line your ink runs over the line and its ruined.
