Twitter Shenanigans – #ecmband

It’s been a while (too long!), but a couple of days ago another of these ECM / pop culture crossover memes hit the twitterverse, with some very funny consequences. Given that the meme seems to have died down I thought I’d capture it for posterity – too many of these memes (remember #cmspickuplines?) have been lost due to Twitter still not offering the ability to find all tweets with a given hashtag, irrespective of when they were originally posted (<irony>I’d tag that with #fail but Twitter wouldn’t preserve it so what’s the point…</irony>).

Without further ado, here’s the list of #ecmband tweets up until 10am US-Pacific on September 4th, 2011 (note: for brevity I’ve removed retweets, meta-comments about the meme, etc.):

@CherylMcKinnon I can see it now “The ECM Mullets present Business Up Front, Party in the Back!” #ecmband cc @piewords @ldallasBMOC The tweet that kicked it all off.

Footnote: although I used the Twitter API to retrieve these tweets, retrieving all tweets for a given hashtag is still a bit of a crapshoot. As a result I’ve probably missed some of the entries – if you notice any that I have missed, please let me know and I’ll manually add them.
