Five Things We Learned From the Twitter Fuckery of Marquise Fivestar
Of course, he had supporters and a ton of critics who blew up his Twitter handle nonstop. What better timing for an anonymous rapper to start dropping links to his songs to recruit new fans? Hurling a mixture of promo links and vagina jokes at those who challenged his actions, Fivestar became as close to an overnight sensation as possible in endless rounds of 140 characters or less.
Few things are more stressful than an impending job interview. It's the kind of thing that can keep you lying awake at night running over possible answers to questions like "what skills do I have that are valuable to the company?" Just before announcing his fake getaway from police on the Tweetosphere on Wednesday, Fivestar mentioned that he was about to fill out a job application and prep for an interview. After Wednesday's saga, he can at least add words like "mass social media manipulation" to his resume. That's the kind of quality any company looks for in a new employee...even a prospective Starbucks barista.

4. Writing a book called "I Am Not a Problem Child" doesn't mean you won't be an asshole adult
As more details about Fivestar leaked out as his Twitter stunt developed, we learned that this guy was actually a child prodigy. No shit. At age seven, he was already a published author, penning a book about how he successfully fought his school's plan to put him on medication and special education classes titled I Am Not a Problem Child. Too bad the rapper won't have the credibility publishing a follow-up book since it turns out he kind of needed both.
