50: The Parody Account Creator

March 8, 2015 at 2:45PM • 45 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Kyle Seth Gray shares his addiction to creating parody accounts on Twitter, how he get bored with them very quickly even though he's on Twitter nearly all the time, how he's "too cool" for old news and the many ways he's a stereotypical self-centered oversharing millenial.

In addition, we discuss meme culture, the life cycle of an internet trend, how algorithms affect the flow of news to different people, Twitter focusing more now on the consumer than the creator, and how "normal" people just want approval online from their real-life friends and not random strangers.

It concludes with Kyle committing to step seven by agreeing to delete all the parody Twitter accounts he is no longer tweeting from and has left abandoned.
