If you are reading this you're bio curious.

  1. 1. “If you are reading this you’re bio curious.”
  2. 2. I find Twitter bios curious. This is a collection of curious bios that I’vestumbled upon in the line of duty over a period of 18 months or so.
  3. 3. “If I could summarise myself in a sentence, I would.”
  4. 4. Summarising yourself in a sentence is one thing.Doing so in such a way as to pique the reader’s curiosity is quite another.
  5. 5. Have I got my views for you?
  6. 6. “All views my own” and variations on thattheme is a familiar Twitter bio convention. And familiarity breeds curiously contemptuous bastardisations of that convention.
  7. 7. Smug strategy cockbags?
  8. 8. Twitter has more than its fair share ofgenuine, bona fide, smug strategy cockbags.The curious thing is that quite a few seem to have amassed large numbers of followers.
  9. 9. Fortunately and more curiously, thosereal-deal smug strategy cockbags have spawned just as many smug strategy cockbag parody bios.
  10. 10. Oh this old thing? I made it myself.
  11. 11. Curious and cool is tough to pull off in aTwitter bio. The margin for error is small. It’s the social media equivalent of trying ever so hard to make it look like youhaven’t made an effort with the clothes that you’re wearing. The secret, it would seem, is total randomness.
  12. 12. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
  13. 13. How many Twitter bios really tell youanything revealing (and therefore curious) about the person or organisation behind them?
  14. 14. A bio is not a biography. It’s a personal ad. The best bios are edited highlights of the whole truth, well told.
