My old colleague Joe Adalian is now kicking some butt over at The Wrap -- check out his TVMoJoe blog here -- and yes, flattery will get you everywhere. That's because the MoJoe man has included Franklin Avenue's Twitter feed as one of the 50 TV-centric folks you should be following on the micro-blogging service.
"Follow this assortment of writers, producers, executives, bloggers -- and yes, journalists -- and you'll be on your way to being better informed about the state of the small screen," Joe writes.
His list includes "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan (@shawnryanTV); "Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter (@sutterink); "The Big Bang Theory" co-creator Bill Prady (@billprady); "Saturday Night Live's" Seth Meyers (@sethmeyers21); New York Times reporter Brian Stelter (@brianstelter); the L.A. Times' Denise Martin (@denisemartin) and Joe Flint (@jbflint); TV Guide's Matt Roush (@roushtvguidemag); comedian Sarah Silverman (@sarahksilverman) and plenty more.
In the case of @franklinavenue, Joe writes:
Variety's TV editor tweets his own stories and breaking news. But the real reason to follow him is for his snarky one-liners. Sample snarkiness: "NBC cancels 'Southland.' But in a twist, viewers had already canceled NBC."
I also Tweet about free coffee at the Coffee Bean, so something for everyone.
