A Twitterific Breakdown Of NYC Prep From A REAL One, Ariel Moses: Round 3

by CARSON GRIFFITH · July 8, 2009

NYC Prep, Episode 3: "What Happens In Mexico..."

It's that time again folks! No, it's not just hump day, but it's time for Ariel Moses' Twitterific Breakdown of our favorite guilty pleasure, NYC Prep. Even though born and bred Upper East Sider Ariel Moses swore she would never watch the inane Bravo show NYC Prep, I somehow talked the Horace Mann and Columbia educated New Yorker into submitting herself to the incessant nonsense that is the Gossip Girl knock-off... 3 times now! Afterall, being a transplant, I could never fully understand what these kids are talking about (besides that they sound like absolute idiots...again... and again...and again). And what better way for Ariel to express her true feelings about the "real"ity show than on Twitter!

Unfortunately, Ariel's tweets weren't continuous this time around, but not because she got so annoyed with the show she threw her television out her Upper East Side window (that was my first guess). This was the text I received last night:

From: Ariel Moses

Omg!!! Twitter just told me I tweeted too much this hour, I have to take a break... not a joke!!!!!!

Received: Tue,  Jul 7 11:15 pm

Who knew Twitter had a limit at how much you could tweet in an hour?! And THANK GOD for DVR because that's the only thing that permitted the tweeting to continue. So what did we learn this week? 1. Twitter has an hourly limit 2. The 16 year olds on NYC Prep are still self indulgent pricks.

Are you a NYC Prep fan? We promise we won't poke fun. Afterall, we watch Real Housewives of New York (...and New Jersey). But if you want to follow Ariel's tweets in real time, you can follow her at @arielilana on Twitter, every Tuesday while she tweets away about the show. Not our fault if she starts a bit late though. Those damn New York girls and their DVRS!
