SELECTED TWEETS FROM MAY – JUNE (2012) by Daniel Alexander
presence. Any and every online presence basically requires a Twitter. When
somebody says ‘Oh I don’t have a Twitter’ they have not truly lived online.
They probably live in that whole IRL thing where people see the sunshine, smell
flowers, and run in lush grassy meadows. Probably they run around the Austrian
Alps singing about how the hills are alive with the sound of music or some
Daniel explores his unique brand of imaginative Americana. Few explore the
intersection of weird and hopeful quite like Daniel. Nobody assassinated JFK he
was thinking too hard Daniel claims. Is this true? Could there have been
someone responsible for the President thinking? Thinking Presidents sounds
dangerous. In general leaders do not think. They delegate thinking to other
people, to think on their behalf.
are a huge part of Daniel’s brand. Again this is a very American belief. There
is no equivalent ‘Roswell’ anywhere else in the world. America loves
extraterrestrials. Entire industries have been built around Aliens. The better ‘X-Files’
plot lines involved Aliens. In fact one of America’s most beloved children’s characters;
‘ALF’ was an alien. Despite his creepy existence people flocked to ALF. While
ALF was a great figure on his home planet on Earth he lived a mild-mannered
existence. Even today ALF lives on a quiet Cul-De-Sac somewhere in the
sprawling Los Angeles suburbs.
He encourages people to ‘Keep Going, you’re doing it’. This is similar to
Roggenbuck’s philosophy of ‘boost’. Good thing positivity has enough space for

Many feel that Daniel is rather naïve in this feeling of pure joy. What is
rarely mentioned is it is extremely difficult to be happy. Attaining happiness
requires a certain degree of interaction with the world. Engaging with the

depressed. Sadness and depression take no skill to achieve. It is the ability
to look past the negative oftentimes immediate future and see what happiness
lies ahead, that is out there, waiting for people.
a huge amount of Daniel’s appeal. He rises above the levels of angst that can
permeate so much writing, to find a new thing. ‘My name is Daniel Alexander and
I’m writing a book’ is so memorable because Daniel is able to find a level of
happiness. Will everybody understand? No, but that’s okay. Daniel is doing it
and he will keep going.
