Our featured Twit this week goes by the handle @pugofwar on Twitter, and Ef Rodriguez most other places. When he's not busy blogging (on his own blog and for the Huffington Post), he can be found playing World of Warcraft, organizing events such as Boco.me and Ignite Boulder, or engaging in witty banter on Twitter (which is what caught our eye, naturally).
Below, read all about why you should follow him, his superhero activities and his relationship to the inventor of the dancefloor in what is surely our most entertaining Twitterview yet.
@DenverWestword: Justify your following. Why should people follow you on Twitter?
@pugofwar: People should follow me because I'm sensitive yet bold. I will gently pour you an ice-cold V8 before savagely crushing the can on my head.
@DenverWestword: What brought you to Twitter?
@pugofwar: I was drawn to Twitter by the promise of high-fives and makeouts. While I have received neither, my incurable optimism spurs me ever onward.
@DenverWestword: What do you tweet about usually?
@pugofwar: I usually tweet about the stress of being Boulder's best-kept secret.
@DenverWestword: What keeps you busy offline (aka in real life)?
@pugofwar: I'm a streetwise vigilante known as The Caped Conundrum. I save babies and solve riddles.
@DenverWestword: Open tweeting: A chance to say something funny, clever or just to convince doubters to follow you: GO!
@pugofwar: I will carry you across the desert. I will remember your food allergies. I am the one for you. Welcome to Flava Country - Population: you.
@DenverWestword: Any last tweets before we let you get back to whatever you do when you aren't being interviewed via Twitter?
@pugofwar: I didn't invent the dancefloor, but I know the guy that did. And he swears he patterned it after my hips. They're sinewy.
