10 Ways Twitter Would Have Changed Leave it to Beaver

Social media like Twitter have changed the way we communicate. It’s far more likely today that someone will post an update on their profile than to contact friends directly. So what would be different about those old TV reruns if they had Twitter back then? Here’s a list of 10 ways that Twitter would have changed Leave It to Beaver:

  1. When Beaver was assigned to write about the most interesting character he knew, there wouldn’t have been a lack of options if he had a Twitter account.
  2. There’s no way that the Beaver could have forgotten to attend his pal David Manning’s birthday party with Twitter around. He’d be getting updates and re-tweets about the party every 30 seconds.
  3. When Beaver talks his parents into buying him an Eskimo sweater, before finding out that Judy Hensler’s got one too, he could have gotten the skinny on that sweater through his Twitter network and saved himself some embarrassment.
  4. There’s no way that Wally and the Beav would have wasted their time restoring that old typewriter they found in the garage if they had Twitter to use.
  5. Wally and the Beaver could have gotten all the dirt they needed on that circus they joined who didn’t pay them their salary. All they needed to do was send out a tweet asking about the employer.
  6. Think of the fallout that would have surely resulted with a Twitter profile to use when Larry told the Beaver that Mrs. Rayburn keeps a spanking machine in her closet. Whoa Nelly!
  7. When Beaver and Wally take different buses on that trip to Crystal Falls, if they’d only had iPhones with a Twitter app, they’d never have gotten separated.
  8. Ward and June try taking the boys off on a road trip to a cabin to get away from  it all, only to discover how difficult it is to leave modern conveniences behind. If they only knew,…
  9. Think about the tweets that would have come when Wally’s classmates in an all-male club put on a play, with Wally playing a chorus girl. We will kindly avoid reaching for the low-hanging fruit by inserting a Beaver joke here.
  10. When Beaver discovers that he is the only boy invited to a birthday party, a few tweets from his Twitter account and some links to photos would have made the Beaver an instant legend.
