Anybody Twitter?

Postby Birdie on Thu Jan 17, 2008 6:38 am

Twitter

I've been using this service for quite a while (a year in April I think?) and I just started following people, but I don't know who to follow, I started following R. Stevens of Diesel Sweeties because he makes funny comments, but for every 2 comments I find funny, I get about 40 that are responses to things his friends twitter, so I wanted to find some other twitterers who wanted to start posting to eachother.

my name on twitter is haikubirdie, and I was just curious if anyone else uses this mindless service.

I originally started to follow some macworld expo updates, but then i started using it. Found Mood Blast, a mac only program that sends updates to twitter and facebook for me. its pretty sweet.
You know, i should work on this.

ooo, I was gonna start a new thread about this. Yay for search tool.

I twitter! http://twitter.com/kezhound

I love it. It's like being on IM, but without all the pressure to y'know, listen to people's melodrama for hours on end. A giant, fun chatboard...and a really good webcomic pimping tool^^

Tweet. I wouldn't use it if I couldn't update it from my phone though. It's better than an RSS feed for comics, though!

Basically it's like the Status Update line from Facebook, but only that.

And if you don't know what the status update is, you type in some text about your current thoughts or what you're doing, whenever you like, and spam everyone about your mundane life.

So why do you need Twitter if you have a status like in Facebook?

Like my girlfriend said, you use it to announce to the world that you've just farted.

Twitter doesn't have all the extra crap you don't care about. You don't get to hear about the 3rd cousin of a friend of a friend who farted. Only YOUR friend that farted. I want to keep in touch with people, but I don't want to deal with pictures, games, gifts, groups, invites and stupid things. I like twitter MUCH more than I like facebook.

Truly, Facebook is getting progressively unusable. The "New Facebook" can't even do half of stuff on dial-up connection. When I visit my parents and try to log in from their dial-up, I can't do much more than loading the main page. Still, it has a few options like exchanging albums or, in my case, preciouss uploading of music.
More sites should learn a lesson or two from Google.

Or maybe you should upgrade from dialup.

Good engineering = making product efficient and working on many platforms.
Bad engineering = making product eat up resources and just assuming that user will always have enough resources.
I have cable at my home. There's a good deal of the world, though, where other options simply aren't available.

I twitter: http://twitter.com/LleuGarnock

Originally started it so when I didn't feel like blogging, the people who read my comic would know I was still alive. I also use it to update my Facebook status, and it's kind of fun to know when Neil Gaiman is drinking tea, or something.

After having the virtues of Twitter shoved down my throat for a couple hours this evening, I'm going to give it a try. Worst case, I'll delete it sometime.
