Worst of OKC 2013: Worst Person to Follow on Social Media

9:30 AM EDT on August 22, 2013

Social Media is a fun way to think you're clever. I'm guilty as the next person of thinking the words in my brain are something anyone else would want to read. I'm usually wrong because my brain has let me down quite a few times. I do have a part in my brain that makes sure I at least try not to clog up the internet tubes with more banal minutiae than already exists on the internet. Some people don't have that part in their brain. Speaking of which...

I'm sure some of these people are very nice in person but being nice doesn't make for good social media. Mother Teresa was super nice but I bet her Twitter account would have sucked.

Dean Blevins- @DeanBlevins

When he's not talking about how great OU football is he's posting pictures on his Twitter account of a kid and a dog in a cage. People got upset over this picture, which is surprising because I felt it wasn't bad at all. I grew up in a cage just like that with four siblings and we turned out just fine. Also, my brother works for Glenn Beck. Oh shit. Now I see how that might have been a bad idea.

Kevin Durant- @KDTrey5

I like Kevin Durant. I like he's a nice guy and will go down as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Neither of those things makes for a super entertaining Twitter account though. It's not bad, but it's not good. He likes music, giving shoes away and going to his friend's weddings. He is maybe the least cynical person on Twitter, which, come to think of it, is refreshing.

Dan Gordon- @DanGordon

Since I don't read this site, I'm not sure what's happening over on Dan Gordon's Twitter account. He Tweeted all the time then stopped. Then started again and then posted some pretty awesome furniture he's getting rid of then posts links to giant buildings being sold. That is a world I know very little about. It's riveting. I've got to get into the jewelry business.

Steve Lackmeyer- @SteveLackmeyer

The Oklahoman's Steve Lackmeyer cares more about the planning and buildings of Oklahoma City than ten Rand Elliotts. The tweet above is a thought he has. Something he worries about. He honestly concerns his brain with these things because...uh...uh...who the hell knows. Yeah, I like Oklahoma City and think it's cool but I'm not "worried" about it. We're gonna be just fine even without a jillion tweets about our buildings. I promise.


abigail ogle twitter fakes

Abigail Ogle- @AbigailOgle

Not unlike most single 25-year-old girls, Abigail's iPhone has taken more pictures of her than anything else. At least that's better than the lonely nights and bologna sandwiches you'll see on my 3GS.

Actually, I think Abigail gets too bad of a rap on this website. Sure, she's kind of self-absorbed, tweets too much, and has a suspiciously high number of fake Twitter followers, but can't you say that about any girl that Ryan Drake has a crush on? I wonder is she'll be at his birthday party.
