You can go home again; how social media takes us back

Jeff Pulver as he appears on twitter

Every morning, Jeff Pulver shouts out random “Good Morning” tweets. Maybe they are not random. Maybe he has a rotating plan or maybe he shouts out to people who are on twitter when he is. I don’t know.

But I do know that I watch for these good morning shout outs and each day, they take me back to my days as a puppy, growing up in St. Paul, MN and listening to the Boone and Erickson show on ‘CCO. Every day, at 6:00am, these guys would pick several communities to shout out to and then sign “Good Morning” from Singin’ in the Rain as sung by Debbie Reynolds, Gene Kelly & Donald O’Connor. I woke up to them every morning as a puppy.

A really short excerpted clip is below, but you can find all sorts of archived WCCO stuff here.

It’s a really small thing. No matter how complicated and new-fangled all this technology gets, ultimately it is about the human — or canine — experience. And the really cool side benefit for Jeff is he pretty much “owns” good morning on twitter.

What little thing on twitter takes you back?

About Rufus Dogg

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+

  1. So it’s a little bit like Groundhog day right ? Comforting and terrifying at the same time.
