The Top 10 People NOT To Follow In The Thai-Twitterverse



For Stickboy Bangkok social media has been an enormous help in growing the site and topping the list is Twitter.

In the seven or eight months since i created @StickboyBangkok I have followed and unfollwed hundreds if not thousands of people in my quest to get the most out of all the info, news, photos, videos, opinions and random thoughts of people Tweeting about Thailand and Bangkok.

No Retweets or interaction, Tweeting only links to your business, automated Tweets to FB updates, 50%+ politics or non-Thai related Tweets and too much “noise” – usually chit-chat amongst friends that often fills your timeline full of irrelevant conversations that mean nothing to anyone else – are all a 1st class ticket to the Unfollow, Remove From List and Mute buttons.

10 People NOT To Follow In The Thai-Twitterverse

Top 10 People NOT To Follow In The Thai-Twitterverse

#1 @CoconutsBangkok · Number one and no link for being a bunch of cowards for hiding behind “Staff” when they called Stickboy Bangkok a “sexpat blog”. 100% Cocobollocks.

#2 Jonathan Head @pakhead · BBC journo who reports Thailand through tinted glasses with often misleading reports & analysis. Not how I want my news, thanks but no thanks. (Muted)

#3 Andrew MacG Marshall @zenjournalist – Former Reuters hack who Tweets and bleats from afar about Thai politics with Royalty being his biggest obsession. A one-way timeline to snoozeville. (Muted)

#4 ThaiVisa @georgebkk – Tweets non stop links, no retweets and no interaction. Everything I don’t want from an account I follow.

#5 Mark Kent @kentbkk – An overpaid, boot-licking, ass-kissing, civil servant who dodges questions from British citizens in Thailand like I dodge bullets playing Call Of Duty. Nuff said. (Muted)

#6 Andy Hall @atomicalandy – Human rights activist who got got for sticking his nose where it wasn’t wanted IMO knowing full well what the risks and consequences were. One dimensional drone on this TL. (Muted)

#7 Adam Sharpe (@MrAdamSharpe – I’ve never met Adam and in the real world he may well be a top bloke but on Twitter where he is popular with a few others I follow he hits red on that “noise” level meter. One of many but alphabetical order meant Adam was top of the list (Muted)

#8 ThaiMythbuster @thaimythbuster – Not much busting going on here except my balls with constant word twisting to suit their own personal and political views. Doesn’t do what it says on the tin. (Muted)

#9 Andrew Spooner @andrewspoooner – In compiling this list I visited each page to grab the url and it turns out Mr Spooner has blocked me for reasons known only to him as I have never conversed with the man. A megamouth who likes to pick a fight with anyone who voices a different opinion to his. (Muted)

#10 Richard Barrow @RichardBarrow – This list would not be complete without the inclusion of Richard “Mr Thailand” Barrow. Loved and hated in equal amounts across the Thai-Twitterverse. The noodle loving, drone flying, travel blogger without doubt has some informative tweets but seems to have a knack of pissing people off with his know-it-all style. For me there are only so many sunflowers and temple photos I can take in a year so RB is on a text-only List.

Happy to finish off by telling you none of the above follow me either so I’m not about to lose ten followers. 555+

New Book Launched By Stu Lloyd – BAMBOOZLED: The Lighter Side Of Expat Life In Asia



Stu Lloyd has dropped his latest book, a massive collection of colourful stories contributed by expats from Pakistan to Papua New Guinea and everywhere in between.

“It’s called BAMBOOZLED – the Lighter Side of expat Life in Asia,” says the Zimbabwe-born Australian who lives in Thailand. “It’s a project I’ve been sitting on for a while and I thought what better time than now to bring people a laugh or two hundred. So we’ve rushed it out on e-book first for an easy, contactless experience.”

The stories are divided up by chapters which include: Language problems and miscommunication

Airport and flying
Café, restaurant and pubs
Bribery, corruption and conmen
Drivers and maids
Golf and sport
Embassy and Diplomatic
Holidays, hotel and travel
Houses, flatmates and landlords
Doctors, nurses, hospitals … and faith healers
Office and work
Retail and shopping experiences, and much more.


Bamboozled captures the simultaneous fun and frustrations of living and working in Asia.

“Many of these are what I call the bamboozling moments,” says Lloyd. “Part mystifying, part perplexing, part head-scratching. Like, what just happened there? But ultimately funny stuff to look back on.”

Lloyd has been collecting stories in the line of duty since he arrived in Hong Kong “as a child slave” in 1987, and has since lived and worked in Singapore, China and Thailand. “Big shout-out to our contributors — these stories are our shared collected experience as foreigners. Many of us have experienced these situations ourselves, or can easily picture ourselves in them — for better or worse, because some of them are quite edgy.”

Bamboozled is corporate friendly and family-friendly, reflecting the new breed of expat, reflected in the range of contributors, both Western and Asian, male and female.

Stu Lloyd has been called ‘the perfect storyteller’ by The Telegraph, UK, on the back of his body of work which covers military history, colonial history, and travel. His 11 books have sold over 100,000 copies and his features have appeared everywhere from Sydney Morning Herald, South China Morning Post to National Geographic Traveler magazine.
