@Ryderjaphy: Best Buddhist Twitter of 2011.

Via on Feb 25, 2011

Bill Schwartz named Shorty Awards Buddhist tweeter of 2011.

I love Bill.

He loves to start fights with d-bags (and, me), root out bullsh*t, call it how he sees it. Twitter, to him—and I think he’s correct—isn’t some nerd tech geek tool—it’s communication at its most viral and immediate and unstoppable.

I can’t help but think that he thinks of himself fighting an epic battle as an underdog against The Man. Can’t help but think of Russell Crowe and that scene in the Gladiator:

If you don’t already, follow @ryderjaphy on twitter and you’ll see what I mean. He’s a lion.

    Oh man…I can never find the version where he slams down the sword, spits and walks away. So Beyond Bad Ass. Crowe's Finest Work.
