Twitter for Fun, Pittsburgh Fear Factor

Twitter for Fun, Pittsburgh Fear Factor

A few months ago, right after the original announcement that Batman would be filming in Pittsburgh, something really funny happened; people decided to use Twitter to imagine what Batman would be like if he was a Yinzer.  I wrote a blog post about it then.  It’s a fun use of Twitter… when a particular hash tag takes off, you get to hear the funnies ideas from everyone around a particularly amusing concept.  Well, yesterday and this morning #PittsburghFearFactor became a trending Twitter tag with many of the Burgh’s funniest people imagining what kinds of challenges would be part of a Fear Factor challenge just for Burghers.  Here are the funniest they came up with:

  • @dillonerd: Being face to face with a screaming Bill Cowher
  • @joe15003:  going through Sewickley Pd speed traps on route 65
  • @MC412:  doing manual labor in an area that doesn’t get DVE
