@bacon kicks off this little exercise in free association.
@hotdogs: Lame. Thanks for taking an iconic foodstuff name and DOING NOTHING WITH IT.
@applepie: Really? No one? Oh, well. It's not like @mom and @baseball are doing their part for America. But at least they exist on Twitter.
@pie: Why so secretive?
@cupcakes: Not much to do with cupcakes, but at least she took the time to decorate her background.
@butter: I expected more from you. Sad.
@icecream: "Chillin'" was a nice start. Then you just sort of melted.
@chocolate: Wow. Who takes "chocolate" and then does nothing with it? This list gets sadder with each scroll downward.
@cheese: Well, whoopdeedo.
@halfsmoke: It's still available, folks! Any D.C. residents want to represent?
@threewaychili: This one's for my Cincy peeps.
@tacos: Yo quiero updates. ¿Por favor?
@chickenwings: "I EATD THEM ALL"
@barbecue: With all the different 'cue factions, a non-updating "barbecue" user probably makes the most sense from a keepin'-the-peace standpoint.
@friedchicken: Stick a spork in it. You're done.
@wienerschnitzel: Ach du Lieber! How can you be "blah" about wienerschnitzel?
@bibimbap: I can't believe this is still available.
@kimchi: Buried in the earth.
@sushi: Wow. An account with some actual signs of life.
@broccoli: This is George H. W. Bush's secret Twitter account.
@brusselssprouts: No surprise that this username is still free.
@breakfast: No love from the most important meal of the day?
@lunch: "Test!" "Test!"??? It works. You have a cute icon—now do something fun with this username.
@vanillashake: Brings no boys to the yard.
@donuts: D'oh! I guess they aren't.
@potatochips: Fingers are too greasy to use keyboard.
@wine: And finally. Someone who actually looks like they're using their Twitter account in a way that befits its username. Kudos, cheers, bottoms up!
Thus ends this little exercise in free association. You now have a peek into how my brain works. And a little more insight on how Twitter works. It's a little disappointing how many people took awesome handles and then did nothing with them, but that's usually how these things go. The obvious usernames get taken early, and I know from experience that Twitter is something a lot of people try out and then drop after a little while. Hopefully some of the better usernames here will come back and do something fun with the names.
