I see Jason's tweet about Paula Deen has caused a shitstorm (at least on Facebook). I'm not on Twitter but I am on FB. Has Jason ever replied to a tweet on Twitter? On FB it seems odd to post something and then never reply to it. Then again, I guess he can't since it's his Twitter feed.

He's said that his Facebook account just re-posts his Twitter feed, but he never logs into Facebook, so any comments left there go unread. He replies to tweets all the time, though

I'm not touching it either, only because I'd piss off most of the people on there. Buncha white people saying the "n" word isn't that bad, lol

Thanks. Just seems strange to me that it's pretty much a one sided conversation (on FB).

I feel the same way. That's where attempting to discuss such a delicate and volatile topic via the web is a major fail.

I read the Tweet. He defended the South and called Paula Deen a racist. Forget the N word, she wanted to dress up the wait staff of a wedding as slaves. I think that speaks for itself. I hardly think what Jason said was controversial.

I don't think it was either but that particular topic definitely is. I've seen it discussed by several folks since the story first broke and I've been somewhat surprised by some of the reactions, a great many of which agree with what Deen has said and done. Other than what I've said here, I'm like Smitty in that I would be apprehensive about entering the fray for fear of being misunderstood.

Twitter now appears to have removed that tweet:

JasonIsbell wrote:That tweet from earlier about P. Deen and racism was removed by someone OTHER than me. What gives, @twitter? I'd appreciate an explanation.

We'll see what happened there, @twitter. Maybe just glitching out. I'm hearing it's there, I'm hearing otherwise. Update soon.

It's showing up on my old timeline, but not refreshed tweets.

Wow. The tweet is gone. I was making a real point, and I don't see what was there to report. Guess it got too much attention. @twitter


I think I have those in order.

UPDATE and RECONSIDERATION: It may be technical trouble at Twitter. I note that another of his tweets is missing. He wrote a series of them about drinking:

JasonIsbell wrote:The people who say "You can't make good art after you've sobered up" are the people who are absolutely terrified of sobering up.

This. RT @Amy1N There are some artists I'd have loved to have seen sober up and make bad art than to have died as young as they did.

Last thing I'll say about it: If you aren't an alcoholic, for God's sake enjoy the wonders of fermentation. Especially if you're at my show.


But this one is missing from Twitter, though (like the Paula Deen one) still on Facebook:

JasonIsbell wrote:Hell, while you're at it, drink one for me. The first one though, not the last one. I ain't taking responsibility for that.


FURTHER UPDATE: So I opened my copy of TweetDeck for the first time in months to message Jason with this:

JohnArkansawyer wrote:@JasonIsbell The tweet starting "Hell, while you're at it, drink one for me" is also missing. I think it's tech trouble.


And on further examination, sent this:

JohnArkansawyer wrote:@JasonIsbell: I see them +both+ in TweetDeck, which I just opened, though not on your Twitter page. Smells like tech.


I don't know a lot about Twitter's architecture, but I have at least a splinter from a clue-by-four of how this could happen.

BEDTIME FOR JOHNZO FINAL EDITION:

JasonIsbell wrote:I'll assume @twitter is having technical trouble.


Assuming technical trouble is never a bad bet. I believe he's right. (But then, you knew I thought that.)

This is the tweet:

Paula Deen's a racist fool. But y'all with the "of course she's racist" angle, kiss my ass. I'm from the South. I like butter. I don't hate.

I personally find myself rolling my eyes at about 75% of the stuff Jason tweets. The other 25% is pure gold though lol.

Maybe his best Tweet ever. I might be biased though. :D

October 23 "A decade ago, I sat down here in Little Rock and wrote a song called "Goddamn Lonely Love.""
"Lucinda Williams was playing down the street that night, and I wanted to write something she'd like if she ever heard it."
"I know Lucinda heard the song, but the only feedback I ever got was "Those guitars sure are loud." That was plenty for me."

For me it solves the "I got green and I got blues" mystery. Always wondered about that..

I heard him say it live, right here in Little Rock. I guess he says that to all the towns. Now I feel cheap.

I'm hung up on Jason's Tweet about his business team trying to get him to be a part of Oprah's Favorite Things. That would have undoubtedly put him a whole new income bracket. I'm wondering if he's really disappointed or if the humor of the Tweet was genuine. Would be kind of tough to think that you were this close to quadrupling your income (at least).

I heard it on a recorded show I believe, but I don't recall which one. Maybe I'll have to try to find it this weekend.

I may not be remembering it correctly either.
