The show Mad Men gets quite a bit of coverage here on ACL, everything from the sixties era style, to the character’s excessive alcohol consumption. While I don’t want to go overboard obsessing about the show (might be too late, the AMC series even has its own category), it is worth pointing out that a few enterprising people (or the AMC marketing department, but I doubt they have what it takes to pull this off see comments) have picked up where the show leaves off and are keeping the characters going 24/7 on Twitter. At first glance it seemed a little goofy, but after a while I really started to enjoy the constant twittering of Betty saying things like: “Trying to spend more time with @sally_draper and @robert_draper, so they don’t feel invisible. It’s hard on them with Don not around” and “Looking for my grandmother’s recipe for German noodles.”
Robert Draper likes to talk about robots (remember when Don threw Bobby’s robot in the kitchen?): “The Robot Army is going to eat peanut butter and jelly today.” Bobby also likes to discuss sixties era pastimes. “Playing spaceman in daddy’s dry cleaning plastic bag! FUN!”
There is even a Mad Men on Twitter watchdog group, complete with an email address for tips!?! WTF!
