The only things I post on Twitter are pictures and commentary about my coin collection and discussions with other collectors about their pictures and commentary about their coin collections. Exciting stuff.
Occasionally, I’ll get a follower who has a female name and a picture of a cute girl as an icon. I’ll look at the profile and previous tweets and there is no mention of numismatics. The tweets are all selfies of the icon girl. I used to hit follow on anyone who would follow me, but not on any of these. When I did follow them, I’d immediately get a DM offering to sell porn and/or crypto.
So, today, this person followed my Twitter:
Nothing about coin collecting, but no pictures of cute girls or paeans to crypto either. Most of the tweets are insipid quotes like the one above, or pictures of scenic places and food. What the hey, I’ll go ahead and follow her (or him).
And I immediately got a DM, with another banal aphorism. Again, I just post about coins on Twitter. So I replied with this:
That got the conversation going:
I’m not really from Illinois or Kentucky, but Shirley, or Camilla (or maybe Richard?) doesn’t need to know that.
Well, that did it! Shirley, or Richard, or Camilla apparently doesn’t appreciate classic sculpture, is turned off by nude chimera, or is repulsed by Danish transit tokens:
Oh, well. It was fun while it lasted. Best of luck to you, Camilla (or Richard or Shirley).
