Troy, Writer, Twitter discussed on The Chad Prather Show
And I was, I knew that I was onto something years ago when I met Troy because they were interviewing me and him on TV, talk show, and so come in there. And I'm looking at this big tall guy in a might is that cowboy Troy. And I was like, I think it is, and he comes up to ten minutes. Talking doing you gotta the truck, and then I was like, holy crap this whilst you know these video. So that was kind of it was kind of crazy to me when I started realizing that people that I consider celebrities are watching these things in, and it was blew me away with stuff like that. He's a good guy. He's a great writer. Yeah, yeah, sharp is sharp. Is the count? Yeah, I like Trump. I need to see Troy. I need some Troy. I need more cowboy Troy in my life, but you and I have interacted a lot on Twitter. What do you think about social media, specifically, Twitter and things like that? The good bad is an evil is at the devil incarnate you, what do you think? I think it it's like wealth. You're like the wealthier. You are all does amplify who you really are. All social media does is amplify who you really are so good point. So it gives a lot of idiots a platform that probably shouldn't have because there's no barrier to entry, but I think that it's leveled the playing field for creators of all kinds artists. Musicians, authors, like all of a sudden a lot of the gatekeepers are eliminated right now, like look at what Uber did the taxi industry Airbnb to the hotel industry. Social media has kind of, you know, plowed over the gates to. Radio publishing the film industry like you can be an independent musician, author film producer and amplify your voice just like paramount. And it just like any other young brand Sony, whoever's exactly how I approached it years ago. So you go to the bad like everything else. And just I think if you don't have haters you probably you need haters if you wanna haters you probably doing something wrong, right? You're not. Well, it goes back to that thing of authenticity. You know, if you're if you're being real and being who you are, you're going to have people who don't like it. They're just not going to like it. I, I've always said that everybody has a voice these days whether they should or should not. They're not. Everybody necessarily has the responsibility to have that level of voice, but everybody has a voice in people have always used to be not everybody had it. You had to either be on television or on radio or an historically speaking, whether it was you had the poets in the in the playwrights in the politicians. Those were the. Voices that were kept for posterity. Now, everybody has a voice in in. It's it's, it's crazy. It really is. Eventually the cream still rises to the top. There's just a lot more clutter and noise today than ever before. But you know, if you think about it, you look at your smartphone, and this is has higher quality video camera than a commercial network. Television studio did like eight to ten years ago. Yeah, and it's in your pocket. You remember we used to sit on the toilet and reach Hampel bottles. Those were good days. Those were the good days. Now we now you've got to figure out what the president tweeted Iran, we can't. We can't go anywhere without the internet's right there with us. We're nasty people regress we sit on the toilet and read the internet. Don't look at me like you're in John and you are. And then we put that phone every now and then up against our year. The the. The NSA is tapped into our cell phones are they have seen it all?.
