This is a transcript of the #giantblueglowingcock Twitter meme from March 9, 2009. This meme, started by myself and @brlittle, managed to make the front page of Twitscoop – that is, until they decided it was too naughty and they pulled it.

The meme is, of course, about the movie The Watchmen, since anyone who has seen it knows that Doctor Manhattan spends much of the movie buck naked, and he is anatomically correct. And, he glows.

The premise of the meme is that after @brlittle came up with the preposterous #giantblueglowingcock hashtag (because of some of my off-handed remarks), we turned it into a game, where the object was to take popular ad slogans and replace key words with #giantblueglowingcock. Yes, it was unforgivably juvenile. It was also hilarious.

As you can see at the very bottom, this all started fairly innocently. Or as innocent as anything with the hashtag #giantblueglowingcock can be, anyway.

I’ve included people who were talking about the #giantblueglowingcock hashtag as well, even if they weren’t directly part of the conversation. I’ve tried to link up everyone’s Twitter usernames, in case you want to follow them (or block them?) as a result of what they said here – because even if they weren’t talking directly to us, they helped make #giantblueglowingcock bigger than Obama and stem cell research on Twitscoop, even if just for a few moments.

A few quick notes for the Twitter virgins: a hashtag, shown by a # sign in front of a word, is used to categorize topics of conversation in Twitter. Using the hashtag makes topics easier to search on in Twitter’s search, and in Twitscoop. Twitscoop is a website that displays real-time hashtag results, which lets users see real-time trends in Twitter conversations. They do, however, reserve (and exercise) the right to pull tags from their stats, lest an army of twelve-year-olds start spamming it with the f-bomb. (Unlike here, where an army of middle aged geeks spammed it with a ridiculous, made up naughty word, which is much, much more mature. No srsly. It is.)

Extra props to @brlittle for taking a screenshot before they yanked it. ‘Cuz you know, screenshot or it didn’t happen.

I’m afraid you’ll have to start at the bottom and work your way up – tweets are displayed most recent first, and I didn’t have time to reverse the order of all 15 pages of tweets about it. A few more thoughts at the very bottom.

Enjoy!

A few parting thoughts

While this is obviously a very silly example of the massive power of Twitter, it’s easy to see the potential for fast-moving, widespread exposure and discussion on a topic (even one as stupid as this). This whole thing started with two people – and you can bet that if Twitscoop hadn’t pulled the tag off the front page, it would have been even bigger and continued on even longer. This was a flash in the pan, for sure, but I think it’s a great demonstration of the immense power people using technology have today. (And no, I wasn’t being cheeky with the ‘bigger’, ‘immense’, and ‘longer’ remarks. Get your minds out of the gutter – I was being serious!)

  • “they helped make #giantblueglowingcock bigger than Obama and stem cell research on Twitscoop, even if just for a few moments.”

    I understand there’s a #littlebluepill that can help with that problem.

    And I was wondering where that hashtag got started!
