Based on a survey of people who mock Twitter users, there are a million followers of the phrase "Don't they have anything better to do?". Now follow the tweets of a guy who really doesn't, with the House Arrest Twitter of "Rydar".
Confined by the state for 20 days in his palatial Riverside apartment -- and dismayed by entertainment options highlighted by Dylan McDermott's "Dark Blue" on TNT -- Rydar has decided to grace the world with pithy updates on his daily doings, and daily not-doings. The feed actually started last week, when Rydar was fitted for his ankle bracelet ("There is a line at least 50 deep already waiting. How come my peers here don't look like me?"), but official semi-incarceration (8pm-8am) just started last night, before which Rydar felt compelled to make like "Ed Norton in 25th Hour" (20 days is a long time to go without beating Phillip Seymor Hoffman senseless). Tragically, Rydar broke up with his girlfriend just before his current predicament, so he says to expect tweets on topics like "CC Deville-like" Rock Band domination, desperate attempts to lure old hookups over for sex/food delivery, his expansive DVD library, and new friends made at judicially mandated classes, including a woman who was punched in the face by the man who citizen-arrested her -- clearly after he asked himself, What Would Bronson Do?
There's no word on whether the twittering will continue after the 20 days and the almost certain frantic Vegas run to follow -- but hopefully this'll be an ongoing thing, as let's face it, no one really does have anything better to do.
