The Daily Twitter: Atheists are Satanists

Christina here…

I think we are going to start a new feature of this blog: The Daily Twitter.

Hopefully TDT will actually occur daily, but… no guarantees.

Why would we do this, you might ask? Mostly because Twitter is aflutter with very interesting characters.

About half of my Twitter interactions look like this:

 

Rage comic about Twitter.

This WWJTD feature will probably pass all of the intellectual muster as Fundies Say The Darnest Things. However, I’ll include not only hilarious exchanges, but positive, awesome ones as well.

I’ll also make sure to Tweet these posts back to the Tweeter, so they can join our lovely blog. Besides, I don’t like to talk about people behind their backs.

Here’s TDT #1: Atheists are Satanists:

DirtyDeedz Official: Do u know what another name for aathiest is..??....A satanist....Research it is aint lyin, there's two forms of satanism.... Look it up

.@RealDirtyDeedz: Do u know what another name for a athiest is?. A satanist. Research it I aint lyin, <- #athEIsts don't believe in Satan.

@Ziztur. There's two forms of satanism, one we're they acually believe in a physical devil, an one we're its more to do with philosiphy

@RealDirtyDeedz That's nice, but I'm not a Satanist. I AM an atheist.

@Ziztur the world has brainwashed you into believing that you are your own god thats what athieism basicly is..

Update: See how in my rage comic, I corrected the bigot for spelling atheist when he actually spelled it correctly? Arg… To fix the rage or not…

Update #2: I corrected it!

Update #3: If any of you other Twats ever have a Twitter catfight/exchange you think is worthy of TDT, send it to me – I’ll probably post it.

    As amusing as it might be there’s a danger that it would simply show up atheists/freethinkers as smug.

    However, to paraphrase Mal Reyonds (I do a lot of paraphrasing): “you should never retweet to a fundie, but it is on occasion hilarious.”

      I doubt that DirtyDeedz could prove a thing even if given 140,000 characters to use…a primo example of how to waste internet bandwidth…what an idiotic wanker.

    I wouldn’t expect Telepaths to need to use twitter that much

    One of my favourite things to do on Twitter is watch Christina go at bigots and toss in my own 2 cents. It’s really quite fun.

  • Izzy Leonard

    Great idea, I look forward to more installments of this series!

    #nitpick I know “there are no rules on Twitter” but the customary format for a Retweet with a response is:

    [Your response] RT @user [original tweet]

    Many twitter API’s call this method “sharing” though the twitter website does not.

    If your comment and/or their tweet are too long to use the “sharing” format then the preferred method is to retweet what you intend to respond to by itself and immediately follow it with a response using the format:

    .@user [Your response]

    Using the “.@user” format implies that you are the author of what follows. It is also be used to publicly answer questions being tweeted at you in a way that your followers can see. Using it as you did it look like you are saying those things (which are actually his offending tweet) to him. It made the exchange kind of hard to follow.

    Now everybody go ahead and respond with the usual “I’LL USE THE TWITARZ HOW I WANTZ TO” as though communication conventions are some kind of oppression. You all probably top-post on forums, too.

      I’ve seen it done both ways, but I understand your criticism and I’ll do it that way from now on to make it easier on people. =D

      See how amenable I am?

        .@ziztur You’re a peach

    Thanks to Christina, I to have taken to Employing the beetle juice rule, you say Something stupid using the word atheist, I will be there. Have enjoyed some very interesting interactions. Like the lady who swore that saying “I will pray for your salvation” knowing I am atheist was not condescending.

  • Aliasalpha

    Shows the sheer level of reality blindness where they’re so submerged in jesus juice that they can only perceive opposition to their mythology as a whole as being in support of a different aspect of their mythology.

    “I really hate that new version of battlestar galactica”
    “Oh so you’re a CYLON supporter then?”

  • Zinc Avenger

    Employing the beetle juice rule, you say Something stupid using the word atheist, I will be there.

    Hmm, sounds like a good idea. Perhaps everyone should go and employ the Beetlejuice rule every now and then. Even if it is just once a week.

  • supermental

    DyrtiDiiiids you are very special. Aren’t ya? Aren’t ya?

  • christophburschka

    Employing the beetle juice rule, you say Something stupid using the word atheist, I will be there.

    Make sure to watch out for language drift. It’s spelled “athiest” in Stupid.
