Browse Pinterest Without Actually Getting On Pinterest With New Twitter Account

By: Josh Wolford - April 26, 2012

When Pinterest first started gaining steam in the wide world of social networking, it quickly developed a sort of female-centric reputation. That in no way means that men couldn’t utilize the service in all the awesome ways that woman could, it simply means that it was all chicks. Seriously, it was like bizzarro-world Google+ in there. Those gender dynamics have leveled out a bit in recent months, but it still seems like a female-dominated medium.

That wasn’t the only determination that people made about Pinterest early on. There was also a certain type of thing that you were likely to see on the site. Recipes, (sometimes) funny motivational-type graphics, home design. It became a thing – you would see something somewhere on the interwebs and say “That would blow up on Pinterest” or “I bet that came from Pinterest.”

Today’s Twitter parody account of the day plays on some of these stereotypes about a typical Pinterest-style post. It’s called PicturelessPinterest, and it’s actually a lot funnier than you may think.

With PicturelessPinterest, you can experience everything you would experience on Pinterest, without actually ever having to log in to Pinterest! Here are some of the best so far:

Large poster reads “Keep Calm and Ask Mom” 21 hours ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

There are only about a dozen other than those so far, but PicturelessPinterest has only been tweeting since April 18th. They’ve already amassed over 10,000 followers though. I’ll follow – I’ve always liked the thought of Pinterest more than actually being on Pinterest – so this is perfect. It’s pretty much my favorite Twitter parody account since @oldmansearch.

Although we could probably already dub 2012 as “the year of the Pin,” recent reports have suggested that Pinterest‘s user base is eroding. Maybe too many photos of Adele in a wooly blanket?

    Agreed you used to be able to browse without signing up but now the all page is completely covered by a prompt to log in and there’s no way to get rid of it.
