Ogemdi Nwagbuo Needs Your Help

    That's right faithful BFTBers, Ogemdi Nwagbuo is asking for your help. He wants more Twitter followers. Not that he's planning on getting in trouble with his Twitter account, he just wants more people to chat with when he's bored (which I'm sure he will be often while rehabbing). He's also tired of hearing the rest of the defense brag about how many Tiwtter followers they have.


    So go to OG's Twitter here and follow him. Tweet to all of your San Diego friends to follow him. Grab every man, woman and child you see walking down the street with a Chargers jersey, shirt or hat on and tell them "Follow OG's Twitter!" Besides the fact that you're a Chargers fans, there are legitimate reasons for helping out OG....


    1. He's a San Diego native, which means there's a good chance of you bumping into him in the future. Don't you want to say "I follow you on Twitter"? It's much less creepy than "I'm your biggest fan!"
    2. He might just be the future Nose Tackle of the Chargers. If he is, chances are he'll anchor the line for a long time. Wouldn't it be smart to get on his good side?
    3. He's a good Twitterer. Steve Gregory and Jamal Williams have 1 combined tweets since training camp. You don't need to be following them. OG has 11 tweets in the last 5 hours, stating his opinions and chatting up fans.
    4. He'll owe you. Request a specific sack celebration (stanky leg!), find out what he was thinking on a specific play or get him to retweet some info to the masses. Go ahead. He'll owe you.
    5. He had surgery yesterday (I think), and flew to North Carolina to have it done. Not only should you be nice to somebody who just had surgery, but North Carolina in the middle of December is no place for a San Diegan.
    6. Think about BFTB! If we get OG a couple thousand followers, maybe he'll create an account and start commenting. Maybe he'll start writing FanPosts. At the very least, it should get us a few interviews and a friendly face the next time a BFTB writer is in the Chargers locker room.
    7. You'll look smart. If OG is the successor to Jamal WIlliams at the NT, he'll be a star in San Diego. Right now? He's not a star. He's a project. If you've known about him, and have even been following his tweets since his rookie season you'll look like you know everything about the Chargers. You'll also look like you can predict the future.


    Getting Ogemdi to Antonio Cromartie's level (20,000+ followers) in a few days may be asking too much, but I see no reason why we can't help him get past Steve Gregory (1,500 followers) and Jamal WIlliams (2,400 followers), up into the range of Luis Castillo (5,800+ followers). We have that kind of audience here. So do what you need to do, and let's build OG a Twitter fanbase.

    Needs your help? Is this a joke? :icon_rofl: Give me a break. If he is bored then he should volunteer in his community. Social networking is for those who did not get enough attention as a kid.

    His account hasn't been verified. Are we sure this is a legit account?

    Not a "verified" account per twitter but he chats with other players and they respond - doesn't appear to be shady at all :icon_shrug:

    An internet message board is a form of social networking.

    Did you not get enough attention as a kid?

    Also, how many volunteer programs do you participate in in your community?

    Have I been excessively running down Twitter or something? Hell, I hadn't even been to this forum for like a couple months until a little over a week ago. I'm pretty sure that since I came back I haven't said dick about Twitter until now.

    People begging other people to follow them on Twitter, counting how many followers they have, that is lame as hell. What a dick I am for sharing my opinion on how retarded it is.

    Never said you were a dick. Twitter is what it is. Some obviously enjoy it. Before that, all the rage was blogging. Should we go around saying bloggers are gay? I don't think we should, nor should we put down those that enjoy twitter.

    BoltTalk has a twitter account. I don't push it on everyone here, but it's used to post Charger related stuff and news about the website. Is that gay? Is BoltTalk part of the "gayness of Twitter"?

    Sorry if my tone seemed argumentative. I don't think you're a dick, but I wanted to make a point. Twitter is simply a technology. A new way to communicate over the web. Like blogging before it, it can be used in many different ways.

    Oh, and if you'd like to follow BoltTalk on twitter, here's a link: http://twitter.com/bolttalk_com

    I honestly wouldn't give a ****, and would just ignore it if people would just let me.

    Problem is that I am bombarded daily with people wanting me to follow them on Twitter. Everybody has a Twitter account and they just have to make sure everyone else knows about it, whether they give a **** or not. People talking about their Twitter account, how many followers, need more followers, blah, blah, blah. It's like a bunch of freaking Amway salesmen, born again Christians, or a cult.

    Anyway, I think it's freaking retarded. I mean really, a thread about some guy needing more Twitter followers? Though I don't feel I b*tched about it enough to receive a "give it a break," I'll try my best not to share my disdain for it.

    Now let's get back to the endless Norv sucks discussions.

    The only fundemental difference between twitter and a message board such as this one is that twitter limits you to 140 characters per post and you need to get "followers" for people to read your posts.

    Anybody who comes on an internet message board and calls Twitter and people who use it gay (or any other insult of their choosing) is being hypocritical.

    It'd be like going to a gay bar then seeing your buddy walk in a half hour later and laughing at him for being in a gay bar.

    :no: I have made the same argument. Perhaps you could enlighten us as to how you believe they are different?

    Both are electronic message boards. Nothing much more simple than that.

    Sure, on twatter you post your random thoughts and things you are doing like....
    This toilet paper is too hard
    I like orange juice
    I am at the beach
    I am watching Brokeback Mountain while twattering

    On a message board it is topic specific (most of the time). You are discussing an interest.

    If it makes you feel better about calling someone who's essentially doing the same thing you're doing here attention deprived, sure.
