The tweets might have meant nothing until we gave them meaning and now they might have meaning... or not, ha.
I remember the days (a few years ago now) when Opethecary was the only one doing the numerology and the theories concerning social media. Quite a few people scoffed at him, but nowadays a good amount of the fandom is doing it.
What if during those years BOC saw what he was doing and decided they'd build their next campaign around it? It's why the Twitter is stalled at 69 posts for so long. For most fanbases, that would just be a number of tweets on a band's twitter, but for us, there's infinite meaning based on the band's history with that number. We are using that knowledge like Opethecary used to do, in order to build up in our minds that the 70th tweet is going to be something significant....and it probably is now.
