Twitter name: @OhMaffew
How long have you been on Twitter? Hardcore since March
What’s your job? I host The Rise Guys Show on 93.3 The Planet FM
Who are your Twitter BFFs? How about just F's? @TheRiseGuys @Fatboy933 @Paige933 @DevoGuido @zen_walker @933ThePlanet @TheJLN
Who are your favorite famous tweeps? @normmacdonald @RealGilbert @SteveMartinToGo @steveaustinBSR
Why do you tweet? Because I get these random thoughts that come to me outside of that 6-10 a.m. show timeframe that I put out there. I put stuff on there that I'd never put on Facebook because my momma is on Facebook. I also used it to give away a pair of floor seats to see BB King recently. I loved it, but the restaurant I was at didn't seem amused.
In real life, where are people most likely to see you around town? I love downtown Greenville. Born and raised here. Poe Mill represent! As much crap as I used to give to Knox White, he really has done an amazing job revamping the downtown area. My 8-year-old daughter Grace loves Falls Park. I do kinda miss the prostitutes on Pendleton Street from back in the '80s though. Speaking of Twitter and Mayor Knox White, when his Twitter was "hacked" a couple years ago I was blamed and was never exonerated by the local TV stations. I didn't do it. I swear. I think Link (@LinkMagazineGVL)needs to do a full interview with me.
What’s your favorite local restaurant? That's like asking Hugh Hefner who his favorite Playmate was. But I will say this, if you own a restaurant and would like me to eat there please contact me @OhMaffew if you comp it I'll Foursquare you. I'm a food whore, and it shows.
What’s your favorite place to see music locally? Heritage Park or Ground Zero
What will cause you to unfollow someone? Too many tweets at once on my feed. P1's ask me questions about the show and such on there and I usually direct message them the answers rather than tweet 10 times in 2 minutes. Unless you ask for a nude, I'll reply and mean it. Not like @titoortiz who said his Twitter was hacked and he sent out a picture of his junk. Come on you celebs, be like me. Yeah I've drunk tweeted and yeah I'm slightly embarrassed by some of them, but by God, I said what I said and I didn't say I was hacked.
Worst Twitter faux pas? Following @Fatboy933 and also doing this interview with less than 1,000 followers. That's sad really. I know a stripper from Wellford that has over 10,000 followers. If this article gets me 10k followers I will do a nude Link magazine cover, full frontal.
If your Twitter handle isn’t inspired by your name, how’d you come up with it? I should explain, my Dad the great Phil A. Harris didn't say his TH's well, so he called me Maffew. And when I did something that he or my momma didn't like he would always say, "Ohhhhhh Maffew."
What Twitter user do you RT the most? @TheRiseGuys @DevoGuido
What’s been your favorite ridiculous trending topic? I went from loving Charlie Sheen to hating him within about 18 hours because of #winning. Also there was #killemwithkindness and I tweeted "I slit his throat with my Goodwill donation receipt" — I received a death threat for that tweet. The same guy also threatened Daniel Tosh, so I'm in good company.
Ever created a #fakehashtag? Yes #CharterNeedsToGetSpikeInHD because I want to see Ultimate Fighter and Coal in HD! Speaking of fake hash, did you know you can buy it at the gas station now. I blame that poor joke on #BathSalts.
