#FollowFriday: Eric Smith (@ericsmithrocks)

As the Twitter handle implies, Eric Smith rocks.

Eric Smith Rocks

It’s that time of the week where we give you someone to follow on Twitter. This week it’s Geek’s Guide to Dating author, occasional Geekosystem contributor, and Philadelphia enthusiast Eric Smith who tweets from @ericsmithrocks.

This week we’re doing a quick version of #FollowFriday because I actually have to cut out a little early today because Eric is signing copies of his book The Geek’s Guide to Dating at Midtown Comics Downtown here in New York. The signing is at 6:30PM at the store’s 64 Fulton Street location. Come out, buy a book, meet Eric, say hi to me, buy comics. Should be fun times.

So why should you follow Eric? He’s a great resource for news on our most very favorite publisher Quirk Books since he spends his days working for them. He also drops great tweets like these:

Eric is very old now. He’s handling it well.

You also get a pretty steady stream of adorable animal photos and videos. Here’s one of his chinchilla mittens, but his bunny Rory makes frequent appearances as well.

White Castle follows him. You think you’re better than White Castle? (You might be. We don’t know that much about you or White Castle.)

There’s also near-constant chances to get free Quirk Books swag, which really is some of the best swag around.
