The @winewankers Twitter account is growing quickly. And I think they have a solid base of real followers to interact with.
Actually, from my interactions with Conrad before they joined Twitter, I knew that they are smart and would catch on quickly.

This was also confirmed for me when he told me he’d worked in the computer industry for years.
The title of course was chosen for the humor in it, and to help out all people with twitter, not just Conrad, specifically. I just knew he’d see the humor in it, and wouldn’t see it as condescencion.
So I declare Conrad and the @winewankers graduates of my Introductory Twitter course.
I will continue to write here under this byline as I learn new cool stuff, and I’d appreciate it if Conrad learns me some things that he knows that I don’t know yet. 😉
One thing that makes Twitter super easy for me, at least on my PC is TweetDeck. It’s Twitter’s advanced UI, and is free.
You can easily break out your lists, multiple accounts (if you have them like me), set up priority feeds, and do everything you can do on Twitter. Just in a streamlined manner.
For instance, I’ve set up my lists in individual feeds. Here we have my aptly named Inner Kirkle feed. And as you can see, it’s easy to respond quickly without digging through the lists on the regular Twitter UI, or going to your twitter homepage.
I can choose which account to tweet or RT from, or from all 4 accounts if I so choose. Very handy as I have 2000 followers on @thewanderin poet, but another 300 or so individuals that are unique to the other 3 accounts that I can reach as well.
I also found a handy application called Vizify.
Vizify quantifies for you how effective your outreach is. For me this is basically how often I talk to my friends, haha.
Although some others on there are on my Favstar list (what I call Twitter Comedians also), Empire Avenue, & Klout list.
But as you can see, most of my close friends from WordPress are in the circle. As is @stevieboylan.
It pretty well conforms to my Inner Kirkle list, with additions.
That’s the @winewankers tucked down there under Eva’s Gravatar, haha.
The other 2 people in the innermost circle are Rick, and Vera. They spend time Klouting and tweeting to #influence, amongst other hashtags.
Somehow by joining them @kred feels I am a professional marketer. At least according to their lists. I have no idea why. But I feel sorry for the actual professional marketers I seem to be out-marketing without actual intent to do so, haha.
I’m number 17. I have no idea what it means in the real world, as I’m not sure I influence all that many people.
I just hope to help my friends, and have some fun while passing the day as work is astonishingly slow. We need some winter storms or something, haha.

Howdy, and welcome to Andy Kaufman’s Kavalkade Krew ~ Featuring the Wandering Poet.
I am your host Kaufman’s Kavalkade. I am also the various authors you see listed over on the right. I like to use Nom De Plume’s. Nom Nom Nom.
I share my poetry, tell the Tales of Captain Jones & the Madison, music videos that I like , silly music parodies that I write, have fun with @StevieBoylan with our #WhereisSteveBoylan webisodes (He’s also a fantastic musician), impersonate Herb Caen (deceased Pulitzer Prize winning San Francisco Chronicle Columnist) very badly, write about social media, social issues, politics and whatever else we’d like to discuss with The KaDoh! Institute and award The Daily Good Cheer Award.
We also conquer the world with WordPress Risk.
Writing very long run-on sentences is a particular specialty of ours.
You can also ask me anything you want at all. I cannot promise that I will answer every question. But I probably will. But it might not be a serious answer. But it might be.
Oh we also blog about the racism, homophobia, hate speech & hateful language we encounter on City Data Forum.
Andy Kaufman’s Kavalkade Krew
Andy Kaufman’s Kavalkade Krew is comprised of 18 individuals.
Our most common denominator is that we are City Data Forum members fed up with the Racism, Homophobia and Hate Speech that we encounter on City Data Forum on a daily basis.
We blog about the racism, homophobia, hate speech & hateful language we encounter on City Data Forum.
We have the temerity to believe that an Internet Forum that claims to be one of the Top 5 Forums in the United States by unique individual clicks should enforce their Terms of Service as written, and not be the mini-Stormfront we encounter on a daily basis.
We call on the City Data Forum Administrator to instruct the City Data Moderation Staff to enforce the Terms of Service as written.
Rewrite the City Data Terms of Service to reflect the type of Internet Forum they are in reality. The one that we have documented over the last 2 months, and continuing.
The Wandering Poet
I write poetry under the Nom De Plume of The Wandering Poet. This poem describes my upbringing.
The California Kid
Nice to meet you
I am California Kid,
Raised to respect my elders
Take care of the disabled
Help the poor
Do unto others as you’d have done unto you
Live and let live
Respect the Constitution
Honor veterans in our midst
Celebrate mom, baseball & apple pie
Pay taxes as due (grumbling under breath)
Work hard, play hard
Oh yes, don’t be racist, or discriminate
Combine that all and you have me
Moderate of practicality
Mixed with synergy
Here in Great Central Valley
The KaDoh! Institute
We also offer our views on social issues, politics, and whatever else we want to talk about with commentary at the Kadoh! Institute.
The Kadoh! Institute was established to express the political, social, opinions of a political Moderate raised in California.
I’ve always classified myself as socially liberal & fiscally conservative.
Yes, the name pokes fun at The Cato Institute. That is their building on the logo. And Kato Kaelin’s hair. As our logo is a Roman in a Toga with Mr. Bill’s head and Kato’s glorious mane of hair.
Yes, young people, we know Mr. Bill looks vaguely like Jack of Jack in the Box. But it’s Mr. Bill.
We will also cover whatever topic springs to mind, much like our friend Renard Moreau does when he gets to Pondering.
We have taken the test located at The Political Compass which serves as our frame of reference. In their multiple axis system, which measures Authoritarian v Libertarian & Communism v laissez fair capitalism we are Centrists leaning towards Libertarianism.
Here are are the results of famous World Figures and current politicians as calculated by the people at The Political Compass for context.
