Not to be confused with Strong Bad's Instagram account of the same name.

@StrongBadActual is Strong Bad's Twitter account. It posts a variety of original text, images, and videos, some promoting recent Homestar Runner projects, others responding to fans. It became active on September 26, 2014, after having lain dormant since its creation in September 2011. The account came to public attention when Brothers Chaps-collaborator Craig Zobel retweeted the account's first post.

In sbemail206, The Paper reads ">tweet here to email strong bad @StrongBadActual". This is the first and so far only time the account has been mentioned on homestarrunner.com.

Identity

My upcoming new jam!!

Although unconfirmed, the account's manager is probably Mike and/or Matt Chapman. Evidence for this may be found within the account's contents.

  • Craig Zobel, close friend of The Brothers Chaps, retweeted the first post. At the time, the account had, at most, a few hundred followers.
  • Later, the account was promoted by Alex Hirsch, who worked closely with Matt on Gravity Falls during most of the hiatus.
  • The account's icon is a shot of the original Puppet Stuff Strong Bad and a handcrafted The Cheat puppet. Only two of the former are known to exist (both owned by the Chapman family) and the latter is a one-of-a-kind handmade item.
  • Handwriting and doodles consistent with Matt's appear in several pictures, as well as elaborate setups of Tandy and Compy electronics.
  • The account became active in late September of 2014, the general time frame Matt said he hoped updates would resume on the Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show.
    • During the same interview, he said "And we'll see, it depends on how whole hog we go, if we give Strong Bad a Twitter account... as part of a relaunch."

The account was proven to be officially run on October 3, 2014, when Fish Eye Lens was released on the main website. The post from September 27, almost a week before, featured an ASCII version of one of the scenes from the toon, calling it a scene from his "new jam" (the toon referred to a "number one jam"), and the profile pic was taken with a fisheye lens.
