Sometimes the best pranks you can play require patience and just the right amount of cunning. Take, for example, the Twitter trolling that this funny guy named Richard Cook from the UK, enacted on his followers. His general Twitter content is pretty topical, political and plays on what’s usually trending in culture, so it’s a great read normally, and it should be. He’s the social guy over at Spotify, so he knows his way around words and social media.
For this trick, however, he pulled out all the stops. After spending a week churning out tweets, on July 4th, he told everyone to go back and read the first word of his tweets for the past 7 days. I’ve compiled all of his tweets for that timeframe, in reverse chronological order. Once you see it, you’re gonna smack yourself in the head.
This guy’s a fucking star, I tell you.
