I Pity The Fool That Isn’t Following Mr. T On Twitter & YouTube

Mr. T is all set to take over the world of social media with a new Twitter account, YouTube channel and even his own app and I, for one, pity the fool that isn’t following and subscribing to get in on the action.

Mr. T finally graced Twitter with his presence last month on January 16, with the following inaugural tweet: “Mr. T is on Twitter. You’re welcome fools!”  The tweet has been retweeted 1,967 at the writing of this post and Mr. T has 19,259 followers.

The beloved “footballer, wrestler, soldier, bouncer, bodyguard, actor, astronaut [and] professional pitier of fools” made his debut on YouTube over the weekend with ‘Ask Mr. T | Episode 1 – Work’, in which he answers one fan’s pressing question: “The copier at work is broken again. What should I do?”

Mr. T will be answering questions, asked by users via his new app, on YouTube each week.  You can subscribe to keep up-to-date on all his latest video uploads at youtube.com/user/OfficialMrTvideos.

And speaking of Mr. T’s app—at $0.99 the Mr. T Official App seems to have it all.  There’s a T-Booth, which makes you look like Mr. T; a Magic T-Ball, where you can ask Mr. T anything and get a video response; an Alarm Clock & Countdown Timer, through which you can be awoken by the sweet voice of Mr. T every morning; ringtones; Mr. T’s Twitter updates and more.

Are you following Mr. T on Twitter? Subscribed to him on YouTube? What do you think of the app? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
