Case Study: Funny Tweets: A Documentary
Laurie McGuinness | Dan Duvall | Christine Larsen
Dan Duvall was a pharmacist's assistant in Victoria. He got on twitter, was funny, and became friends with the show runners for Family Guy, The Simpsons, & Modern Family, and The Conan Show's Andy Richter. When he was nominated for an award in LA, he went to the award show, and his life was never the same. Twitter has democratized access to an audience. If you are funny on twitter, people will find you, and read your stuff. And your life can change.
