31 Days of Oscar University: Final Exam Questions

One morning in my enthusiasm over back to back Bette Davis movies, I wondered if anyone else felt so compelled to tweet. To my surprise I found more than one zealous tweets about the same TCM showings. A mutual following of TCM enthusiasts and 31 Days of Oscar inspired @TCManiacs. Twittering daily schedule and tidbits of trivia about the current TCM movies has drawn over 600 followers in 3 weeks. Since inception on Valentines Day, TCManiacs.blogspot.com has received visitors from 250 cities from every continent.

TCManiacs twitter and blog has been a spontaneous organic development, without plan, paralleling my own OCD habits. I am delighted to make use of my obsessive behavior and share some of the otherwise useless information for your enjoyment!

Who is the mysterious TCManiac?

First, I'll tell you who I am not. I am not affiliated with TCM. I am not some superbot created by software developers. I am not being paid by TCM or anyone else to dedicate my time to tweeting. I am a real flesh and blood human being. I am a real maniac for TCM. I really do keep my TV tuned to TCM 24-7. I created the TCManiacs twitter as a result of my sincere passion for watching Turner Classic Movies.

How I got started?
Well, I've been a fan of TCM since its inception. As I lay flat on my back recovering from a disabling health crisis unable to do little more than watch TV and surf the internet, I found refuge watching TCM round the clock. I soon developed an obsessive habit of keeping a browser tab open for the TCM schedule and beating Robert Osbourne's introductions to finding out facts for upcoming movies. My entire day and night became defined by the TCM line-up. At the beginning of 2009 I decided to check out twitter and lucked up on some fellow TCM fans to friend. During the 31 days Oscar I decided to dedicate a twitter just to share my TCM obsession by tweeting about every movie every day of February. I was totally overwhelmed by the number of fellow TCM maniacs that became my following. Its been a WIN WIN in everyway for me. I have had the opportunity to share fun stuff with some incredible fellow classic movie lovers and bloggers. With so many followers I became committed to maintaining the twitter schedule and finding fun stuff for upcoming TCM movies.
