Posted Thursday, May 7, 2009 9:57 AM | Contributed by Jeff

[Ed. note: The following is a portion of a press release. -J]

Six Flags, Inc., has welcomed back an old friend and reintroduced the recognizable face of its brand, Mr. Six, into its 2009 "More Flags... More Fun" advertising campaign. The iconic character first danced his way into Six Flags advertising in 2004, but has never engaged in conversation, until now. Guests can check out "tweets" from Six Flags' Mr. Six on Twitter under the profile name "TheRealMrSix."

Recognized in the past as "the dancing old guy," Mr. Six's role has evolved and he is now the foremost authority on fun. His joyful and energetic personality, previously expressed solely through his exuberant dancing, is now engaging Twitter followers through tweets, revealing his passion for entertainment and fashion and displaying his unique talent as a rater of fun.

I still don't get twitter.

My best friend, who has a masters degree in entertainment business, just told me that I'm going to have to get used to useing Twitter if I want to keep fans of my new music project more connected. I'm having a hard time with it.

Oh, the topic...Mr. Six shouldn't be communicating in any other way except for smiling and dancing, and maybe motioning with his hands sometimes. This coming from someone who really love Mr. Six.

...And he's still sexy!

I thought old people weren't supposed to know how to use fancy new technology?

I also don't get Twitter. I mean, I understand what it does, I just don't see any usefulness for 99% of the population.

And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

Why does it have to be useful? Can't it just be fun?

No. Everything must have a purpose and everything has to be efficient to the highest degree. Because I said so. :)

I just don't want to have to think to myself that I better go tweet about going to the bathroom or what color t-shirt I decided to wear today. Posting little bits about my life doesn't sound like fun. When a big event happens, or I have something on my mind, I blog about it.

The way that I am describing it, it's not the same thing. "Little bits about my life" are mundane everyday occurrences, like going to the grocery store or tying my shoes. When "I have something on my mind", it means that I would like to write a few paragraphs about my life or about what's going on inside my head at the time. The little bits (Tweets) are boring and unimportant. The good stuff only gets blogged about after I have fully let it digest into my brain and I feel that I may want to comment on it.

If you have something on your mind, and it's the same thing as the little bits about your life, go for it. Twitter is not for me.
