About dubstep4dads

Eric Curtin, aka Eric Turtle, aka @dubstep4dads, aka the guy “changing my name to austin/blake/chad… when vine 2 drops,” has been pouring out absurdist thoughts and anxieties about life into funny tweets since he was in high school. He hasn’t missed a beat in 2017, with 225K+ Twitter followers loving his irreverent and delightfully warped sense of humor. The tweet where his mom framed the picture of Ed Sheeran he sent her netted nearly 100K likes. With a penchant for hilariously turning memes on their head, it’s no wonder he landed a gig writing about the funniest things on the internet for Playboy. For someone who started tweeting out of social anxiety, Eric sure seems comfortable doing it, and his fans love every post.
