Every mighty IT guy or gal out there knows that people have their own skewed view of IT professionals. For some, the IT pro seems like their personal hero – swooping in and saving the day when technology fails. Others aren’t quite so sure…

In fact, because we like to follow a lot of the conversations on the interwebs about our industry, we have been laughing (and groaning) our way through the hundreds of #ITGuy tweets out there. These tweets offer a distorted sample of the public’s view of IT support.

And now, one of our brave coworkers ‒ an actual IT guy ‒ has volunteered to read some of our favorite #ITGuy tweets live, just so you can get an idea of how IT is sometimes viewed.

Hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

P.S. We’d like to make a few more of these videos, so please keep the #ITGuy tweets going strong or RT a couple of your favorite ones with the hashtag #MightyITGuy and we’ll be sure to include as many as we can in the next video installment.
