What Would Warhol Do?

My @AndyWarhol Twitter account has 200+ followers even though it has never been updated. What should I do with it?

13 comments

just tweet "my 15 minutes are up" and let it sit there for eternity.

leave it as is until it acquires its 100th follower.

Let someone or something take control over the feed for 15 minutes at a time. Whatever happens.. happens.

make and post warhol-inspired art using your followers' icons as your muse (a la his Marilyns)

Blah. I was going to do @rimbaud the other day, and of course some idiot has been sitting on that, too. I think twitter needs some sort of policy where accounts like this get returned to the wild if, say, you haven't updated in the number of months as your total number of updates.

Something.

I meant, leave it as is until it gets its 1000th follower, then tweet "1000".

Alt, make a tweet each month with the current count of followers.

Twitter is pretty much Performance writ on the internet, so I'd say you're doing exactly what Warhol would have done with a Twitter account. Bravo.

doesn't "The Philosophy of Andy Warhol" have Twitter-friendly bite-sized wisdom? Tweet these. You could use the Diary and other books too.
