It's Pub Night: Early Tweets

It's Pub Night has now been around for 15 years, since December of 2007.

Blogging was eventually eclipsed by social media, but in those early days there was a more symbiotic relationship between blogs and the nascent social media universe.  The four big years of It's Pub Night, 2008-2011, coincided with the rise of Twitter and Facebook.  Since Twitter looks like it might be tottering on the brink right now, I downloaded my personal data from there, and I'd like to share some of those early tweets with you as a way to celebrate 15 years of beer obsession.


Twitter (founded 2006) was starting to catch on in 2007, and I joined in April of 2008.  There were no celebrities, politicians, or likes.  To "retweet", you had to cut and paste the tweet you wanted to quote, and fake retweets were an art form of their own.  Tweets had to be 140 characters or less.  A bunch of apps sprung up to make creative use of these short bursts of information.  The only algorithm was "most recent tweet", and many a real-life friendship began on Twitter.  

At some point Twitter realized there was no money in friendship or other peoples' apps, so they made it harder and harder to develop and maintain apps, and the platform was re-engineered to use your emotions to make money for other people.  Looking at my old tweets, it's amazing to see how many Portland friends -- some good friends -- I first met online.  That is largely gone now.  I can't remember how many years it has been since that happened, and I suspect it is the same for all of you.

Let me also strike a blow for forward chronological order!  It is something that has been destroyed by blogs, social media, smartphones, etc., and I think it is damaging everyone's brains to read everything in reverse order hundreds of times a day.  Do not adjust your browser:  these tweets go from oldest to newest.  The times are Oregon time, even if tweeted from somewhere else.  Click on the time to see the tweet in Twitter.

April - October 2008:  Is this thing on?

I didn't understand Twitter at first.  I thought I might only use it as a digital diary, for instance to remember when I got a particular bruise.  My first 6 months, I only tweeted 12 times:

Isn't that cool? Here we are 14 years later, and Black Angels are on the radio with new stuff right now. My pub night friend Wade was working the soundboard; he never gave me the bootleg I wanted from that show.

December 2008 - January 2009:  Friends!

That snowy December, I was surprised to get a tweet reply from Ezra, who was just an acquaintance then, but soon enough became a close friend. Twitter doesn't link to his reply, you have to take my word for it. The light bulb came on over my head, and I started to understand how to use Twitter to communicate with other beer-blogging kinds of people, Twitter-savvy businesses, and old college friends. 

In these tweets, @TheBeerax is Jeff Alworth, who you now know as Mr. @Beervana.  I started to announce blog posts, and I had various other schemes for connecting It's Pub Night with Twitter.  The weird numbers like "|1133" on some of the tweets are location IDs on  Click them!  (There are about 70 tweets for these two months -- scroll past them for a discussion of 2009 and the remaining 750 tweets of that year.)

February - December 2009:  The Golden Era Begins

To be sure, there were excellent things on It's Pub Night in pre-Twitter 2008: the Sample Tray Stunt, the first complaint about dried "fresh" hops, auctioning an empty Abyss bottle, and other adventures.  But the 2009 tweets bear witness to the beginning of a golden era. March: Beer Review Generator.  June: Six-Pack Equivalent Calculator.  September: Portland Beer Price Index (RIP).  I'm really proud of the truly unique content I provided in those days.  It's still available to you, decades later.
