Online fashion and culture guru EveryGuyed is back with a new illustrative series called Go Tweet Yourself: 16 Stereotypes Twitterized. In this collection, EveryGuyed pokes fun at Twitter and 16 stereotypes viewers would either love or hate.
The original Twitter bird is pretty bland and EveryGuyed decided it was time to give him a personality. The stereotypes include ones like: The Jock, The Rapper, The Emo, The 80s Work Out, The Transsexual and much more.
Each of the characters can be printed out so you can cut and color them in any way you please. You can even upload your stereotypical Twitter-self to the EveryGuyed Facebook Fan Page to win a prize. I am hoping they take upon some more hilarious stereotypes in the near future.
Implications - As social media usage becomes more established and normalized, so will commercials, print ads and campaigns that mock or mimic the kind of behavior exhibited on these platforms. Companies that target social media heavy consumers also increase their chances of getting these consumers to engage with their social media outlets, especially if they run contests open to users active on the outlets.
