Joe Flanigan joined twitter on July 28th 2010, while flying to Dublin for the shooting of Ferocious Planet. He started by following @FlanInfo and @dhewlett and had a good 5000+ followership within a week. He proved rather active and engaging with the fans during the period he was shooting Ferocious Planet (The Other Side) in Ireland and Change of Plans (Best Laid Plans) in Toronto during the summer and fall, then his enthusiasm dwindled down by the end of the year. He actually confesses in a radio interview aired on 7 April 2011 by BuzzWorthyRadio that he usually “gets really excited about things and then just completely forget about them”.

His 2010 tweets are copied below.

28 July 2010 Joe Flanigan here, tweeting for the first time. Anyone out there? And yes, this time, it is the real Joe Flanigan

28 July David, you are lame. Can’t wait to tell you that in person in Chicago. This is Joe Flanigan, yes the real one, wondering what you had for lunch today.@davidhewlett

29 July Tis the real me. I have decided to make the trip to Tweetaria. Once I figure out how to send you a photo I will. In Nantucket right now but flying to Ireland tonight to shoot a film. Texted Jace that it is me. Will now text Hewlett who is probably eating

29 July David already texted me to tell me I was a cyberwhore. This is going to be fun. I will crush him. Getting on plane for Dublin right now. Beware Ireland.

29 July I am the only guy in 1st class Air Lingus. I will now attempt to drink for the absent 24 First class passengers. God Bless The Mother Land!

29 July that plane had a lot of alcohol. Anyway, I’m here at the LongHaul Pub in Dublin discussing film. God bless the motherland!

30 July @JamesBamford is that you?

1 Aug At Druid Glen Golf Club. Hard to play golf and hold pints. Something must give. God Bless Ireland

3 Aug First day of shooting. Great cast and crew. Pints tonight for everyone!

3 Aug Enjoying shooting in Ireland. I’ve shot two pheasant, a deer and someone last night who tried to steal my Guiness. Watch out Hewlett!

3 Aug The “Otherside” for ScyFy. I play a Marine colonel stuck in a parallel dimension. Working with John Rys-Davies this morning. Great actor

4 Aug I wouldn’t be so paranoid if all these damn leprechauns weren’t trying to steal my Guiness

4 Aug Anti-leprechaun measures executed. Awaiting casualty figures. Guiness safe and all is well again on the Emerald Isle. Movie info to follow

4 Aug Conan Dex the Barbarian Momoa just called from Belfast. Coming down to visit Sat night in Dublin. Attack from the North. Must hide beer

5 Aug Another good day on set with Irish Director Billy O’Brien and English producer Adrian Sturges. Why does everything look like Canada?

9 Aug Wow. Pints for Everyone! Lemons for Hewlett! Trying to scrape him off my front bumper right now

10 Aug Working with the lovely and talented Dagmar Doring who is putting up with my sh^#* very well. Thx for all suggestions for weekend folks

10 Aug Castmates too good natured. Determined to make them crack. Will begin deploying extreme measures culled from years of surviving Hewlett

11 Aug Thx for all the questions. I will answer later in the day, as there is little or no cell reception here…in a parallel dimension. Cheers

11 Aug Q: If you had been offered the role of Drake in Uncharted, would you have taken it happily or disappoint us all by not?

11 Aug A: Would love to play the role of Nick Drake! Your lips to God’s ear

11 Aug Q: if you could rewrite the ending to SGA, how would you send Shepard off into the sunset?

11 Aug A: Ronin and I steal a puddle jumper, pack it with beer, duct tape McKay in the back (tech support) and set up a new series: WraithHunter

11 Aug Or should I say “Wraith-Busters”

11 Aug Q: Did you get the whisky I sent to your management team back in May? I told you about it in Milton Keynes at end of May?

11 Aug A: had to pry it from the cold dead hands of my manager, but yes, I did safely get it home. Big thx and kisses

11 Aug Q: Continuez vous a parler un petit peu en français?

11 Aug A: what did she just call me?!!!

11 Aug Q- Are you jealous @dhewlett gets to go to Stargate Universe and you don’t?

11 Aug A- a better question may be ‘do you feel sorry for the cast of SGU having to work with Hewlett?’

11 Aug BTW, Mais oui, je parle toujours avec mes amis français.

11 Aug Q- 终于看到你了,开心。你没有上facebook?

11 Aug A- it’s all Chinese to me…mon ami.

11 Aug Q-The skunk thought the stump stunk and the stump thought the skunk stunk. Who stunk? The skunk or the stump?

11 Aug A- perhaps the most insightful question of the day. Let me get back to you….after my head explodes

11 Aug are you afraid that @dhewlett ‘s squirrel army could still vote him to be actor of the month, and kick you out? ;D

11 Aug A-perhaps you should first ask the dead army of leprechauns who tried stealing my Guinness

11 Aug Long day shooting. Need to figure out weekend plans. Leaning toward Donegal. I’ll check out surf report. Never get over Ireland’s beauty

11 Aug Thanks to the girls at @FlanInfo for help with the twitter stuff! And the support in general.

12 Aug Hewlett is suspiciously quiet. Perhaps he’s too busy voting for himself. Let me give him a call

13 Aug Coming back to Ireland has been deeply profound for me, and it’s not just the beer….it’s also the whiskey

13 Aug Me and Ken @tkl7 from costumes on ‘The Other Side’. He’s starting to look good after 2 weeks in the woods.

Joe and Ken

13 Aug Seriously, it’s been a great experience. Wonderful cast crew and producers. Really hoping to come back for future projects (non-pub related)

13 Aug One more week of shooting ‘The Other Side’, more affectionately pronounced by my Irish crew as ‘Te Utter Side’

13 Aug Hewlett must have Carpal Tunnel syndrome by now.

13 Aug Q&A was fun. Should we do another one?

13 Aug BTW, the ladies @FlanInfo have been super helpful with all of this. I recommend you follow them.

13 Aug Let’s plan on Q-A for Monday (Irish time). Look forward to it

15 Aug Chopper ride to the west coast of Ireland, Aran Islands, Cliffs if Mohr with my bro-in-law. Is there such a thing as heli-surfing?

15 Aug Let’s do Q&A during the day tommorow (Monday) folks.

15 Aug WHAT A DAY! Took heli over cliffs of Mohr, landed on island of Inishmore, swam in Atlantic, flew to bay of Galway for Oyster and Guinness, and all with great friends. Life is GOOD!

Life is GOOD!

16 Aug G’morning sleepy heads. Almost 11am Dublin time. Going to start answering questions, but first, how about David Hewlett and his squirrels?

16 Aug Wasn’t there another story about an actor and his squirrels? Oh, wait a minute, those were gerbils

16 Aug Q-Seriously unlikely, but if the chance arose, would you be tempted to reprise the Brendan Dean role from Thought Crimes?

16 Aug A-absolutely, great role, great potential series. That’s probably why it didn’t get picked up. We have mediocrity to protect

16 Aug Q-Hi Joe! Is there any part of acting that you don’t like?

16 Aug Not acting.

16 Aug

16 Aug Without a doubt. The road signs. Check it out. This is just from yesterday

16 Aug Q-Do you remember what was your fav toy you liked the most as a child?

16 Aug A-a red go-cart, my chariot o’fire. Taught my little brother how to be a stuntman by throwing him out at full speed. High learning curve.

16 Aug Q-When you feel depressed, what do you do?

16 Aug A-I remind myself that, at least, I’m not David Hewlett, or a squirrel.

16 Aug Once again. Q-Glad you’re enjoying the MotherLand. What has been the biggest surprise to you about Ireland?

16 Aug A-That’s my happy look sweetheart   

16 Aug Q- I’m a cat. I hear you don’t like cats, you like dogs. Why?

16 Aug A-cats are smarter than I am, that makes me uncomfortable. But the fact that you, as a cat, were able to twitter me questions, freaks me out

16 Aug For whatever it’s worth, I’ve actually voted for David Hewlett over 5 thousand times. That makes at least 3 of us voting for him. Go DH

17 Aug Why are enlightened people so unhappy?

17 Aug That’s not a rhetorical question, nor an attempt at any early morning philosophy.

17 Aug Me happy

17 Aug Neal McDonough fired from ABC series 4 refusing to do sex scenes. He’s a great actor and an acquaintance. Good 4 him 2 stick with principles

17 Aug Can’t wait to get back home and surf. But I will really miss Ireland, especially the friends I’ve made.

17 Aug Maybe the ABC producers should replace Neal with David Hewlett for the sex scenes, and turn the show into a horror film

17 Aug Craig from Newfoundland suggests ‘Hewlett’s House of Horrors’

17 Aug Yes, Lisa, the ‘Rocky Hewlett Picture Show’

17 Aug btw, I pick on the people I like. Also, trying 2 get my residual checks sent back 2 me accidentally sent to @dhewlett. Who has the leverage?

17 Aug @LeeCassar HAPPY BDAY!!

23 Aug Trying to shake the image of Hewlett in the new Planet of the Apes.  Must..warn…others.  Do Apes complain a lot?

25 Aug Back in in Malibu. Attacked by my four dogs. When they piss on your leg, that means they miss you, right? Waves are sweet. Going surfin!

27 Aug Chicago, Chicago, hell of a town, hell of a town. Then Toronto. They need theme song..and I they will have one after I’m done w/ that city

27 Aug Is Grover sad I’m leaving?  I’m reading apathy.


27 Aug Now that’s the sad face I’m looking for.


27 Aug  Felix


27 Aug Django


29 Aug Leaving Chicago. Trying to recuperate from my time in stage with Hewlett. Hope he doesn’t mind the dirty handkerchief I put in his bag.

Editor’s note: See below David Hewlett’s tweets on the occasion

@JoeFlanigan Currently heating my room to above 114 degrees in order kill off any possible con-Flanigan-ation I may have been exposed to.

Don’t go changing @joeflanigan, we love you just the way you are…leaving!

Great to share the stage with @joeFlanigan in Chicago, or anywhere, but Chicago particularly. He’s gone? I never liked that guy..beady eyes!

29 Aug RT @robdelaney: Kittens are God’s way of saying “Relax assholes, JC & I got this. Plus it’s totally OK to be a homo. Now let’s dance.””. LOL!
