Home improvement via Twitter

This morning conservative tweep Kevin Eder tweeted out his door knob woes. Then good samaritan Dan Isett decided to try and help walk @keder through replacing his troubled door knob. Hilarity, of course, ensued.

@keder doorknobs are a snap to fix… honest

@keder I can walk ya through it….

@DanIsett it's like the screws don't fit where they're supposed to go.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) March 18, 2012

@keder Which screws? The long ones that go though the knob & door? Or the screws that hold the strike plate in place?

— Dan Isett (@DanIsett) March 18, 2012

@DanIsett the screws that hold the knob in place. I think. The overall contraption has a different kind of knob on each side.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) March 18, 2012

@keder Outside door or inside door?

— Dan Isett (@DanIsett) March 18, 2012

@DanIsett the knob is on the inside. I can't get it to stay connected. No clue why.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) March 18, 2012

@keder Hard to say what's up without seeing it, but if it's an interior door, a new knob will only cost you about $25. Easy to install.

Then @RBpundit wondered exactly how @Keder got through college without basic door knob replacement skills.

@DanIsett @keder How did Kevin make it through college without ever having to change a door knob?

— RB (@RBPundit) March 18, 2012

But then again…

@RBPundit @DanIsett @keder what college did you guys go to if you needed to replace a door handle?

This experiment in twitter based home improvement comes to it’s inevitable end…

Twitter sucks for home improvement advice. #thingsilearnedthismorning

— Dan Isett (@DanIsett) March 18, 2012

Happily @Keder found a way to cure his door knob blues.

I have a friend coming over to take a look at my doorknob, but I'm pretty sure he's just coming to see @mackinawww.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) March 18, 2012

And, yes, @mackinawww is @Keder’s dog.

So, what will be the next twitter based home improvement project? Well there is one candidate…

@DanIsett Do you have any info on how top pop corn?
