Hit Me on My Twitter

At my job we recently had Biz Stone come in and have a personal Q&A with us. I got to brush up on my drawing chops and I designed this poster for this event. He was really personable and did not take himself too seriously. After everything though--I still don't see how the business model of Twitter works.

Twitter has invaded pop culture and it wasn't going to be long before someone made a song about it--or perhaps several people would make a song about it.

Here are a few that stood out to me.

Jooce - Hit me on My Twitter:
I saw the video shoot for this one at mug lounge NYC. I was DJing next and they went Waaay over their time slot. There was all underage girls and they were taking crumpled up one dollar bills and making it rain in the shoot. It was funny to see them keep picking it up and reusing it.

C Teezy - Hit Me on My Twitter:
I think this one actually used the beat from Three 6 Mafia's classic "Sippin On Some Sizzurp" which actually samples a Marvin Gaye track originally. Great to bring up U-tern's Disco Sizzurp (in his playlist) which is a sick disco version of 36M's track. He is one of my favorite producers.

Mistah F.A.B. - Hit Me on Twitter
Possibly the best sounding one. Even though he sounds almost exactly like T-Pain. In fact it almost sounds like Jamie Foxx featuring T-Pain - Blame It. This song is a guilty pleasure for me when I'm getting ready in my room.

J-Eye - Follow Me (Twitter Song)
Not bad. Good harmonies

I'm barely on Twitter. I don't really use it much.
