Anyone Twitter?

59 posts in this topic

Just wondering if any of you out there Twitter? I'm basically in love with it! If you don't know what it is, it's basically micro-blogging. Or if you're familiar with facebook or myspace, it's just "status updates". And that's all. Nothing fancy. There's a link to mine in my sig, but you need an account to see it cuz mine's private Sorry, but definitely check it out! And feel free to "follow" me!

http://twitter.com/iacas is me.

And you don't just need an account to see your posts, Michelle, you need to be approved by you. Somewhat different thing. As a general rule, a lot of people don't follow people with protected updates.

I have an account that I barely use. http://twitter.com/uclashindig

Maybe I'll get in the hang of it.


But you know who else has Twitter accounts that people on this board might be interested in reading? Stewart Cink and Parker McLachlin. How cool is that?

Hell, no.

Ha. Sorry. With the Ben Hogan picture that just makes me think that is probably what Hogan would say. Too bad, you are missing out on random updates from your friends - unless you use: facebook, myspace, email, telephone...

Hell, no.

I thought that at first too...but it definitely is beginning to become more useful the more I use it. One thing I currently use it for is news/search in real-time. Others that have thousands of followers use it for crowdsourcing. Some use it as a bookmarking tool. Some use it as a to-do list a la rememberthemilk. Some just want to be heard (even if noone is listening).

Most will simply tell you to just start using it and its benefits become clear. Most probably did start that way.

I don't tweet yet. I noticed all the most well known golfers have Twitter account suspended. Probably Twitter squatting going on there.

It just seems like a hassle to me... I don't really care if too many people know what I'm up to any given day. Plus, it would be one more thing I never look at just like my facebook and myspace acounts... which I haven't checked in several months.

But how will people know that you are wondering what shoes to wear?

Twitter > Facebook. I just like it cuz it's simple, and actually very imformative. If you have the Space and Facebook, you might as well try Twitter

hehe.

I'm starting to prefer twitter too - though I have my tweets sync up with my facebook status.

    • I don't think we're at the point where all that stuff can really be integrated quite yet. Too many competing standards and stuff right now. Soon. Not yet.
    • Of the six military guys I asked about it, five felt it was exactly the kind of thing they fought to protect and had no problem with it. The sixth said he thought it was disrespectful but said so is killing people and blowing shit up and the military does that itself. Have you polled enough of the military to see whether it was seen as disrespectful by the majority?
    • Of course the outrage is after the fact.  As it is with most things.  Are you stating you would have to personally witness something as it happens to be outraged or disagree with it?   I don't believe it is something that can be "proved" either.  I don't think it needs to be.  If the majority of the military feels it is disrespectful, than I tend to agree with that.
    • My house is dumb as a brick.  And 2x4 posts.  And drywall.  And paint.
    • No. Liking the entirety of your country, your government, etc. is not a binary state. You don't even like everything about your wife. Or children. Or golf. @Gunther, never one to disappoint with that crap. More below… You never give people enough credit. Guess what? You can support a person's right to protest while completely disagreeing with whatever they're protesting. It isn't. But your constant attempts to pigeonhole do more to divide than they do to gain understanding, find common ground, and discuss things intelligently. I'll call it like I see it - you're intellectually lazy when it comes to anything political. That's why I think you pigeonhole everything into "liberal" and "correct" (in your opinion). And hey, I tend to vote Republican. We're probably more alike than you imagine, politically… except that I try to look at things separately, when I do take the time to consider it, while you seem to want to just pigeonhole and spout. Others have said it, but you can't "prove" that it's disrespectful. It's just your opinion. And anyone else's. At the risk of making a post that's not "on topic" enough that I'd moderate it if it weren't my own post (though mods are and always have been free to moderate my posts as they see fit)… my thoughts on the matter include: I don't think it's disrespectful to sit. I think you should probably have a reason to sit, because if you garner attention for sitting you'd better have an answer as to why, not just "I don't know, stuff sucks here right now." He seems to have had a reason, so okay. Sitting is no different, IMO, than burning a flag. Protesting in front of Capitol Hill. If a "regular person" sits, nobody will care. A few people might say "what a jerk" in their minds, but they're not going to care if he has an issue. They will if a celebrity sits, so he used the fame to get his point across. I'm not entirely sure what he was protesting, so I don't know if I agree or disagree with him. I know people who support gay marriage but who oppose welfare. Or the opposite. IMO, things are rarely so clearly divided along party lines. I know military people who think what he did was terrible, and others who think it was a great expression of the freedom their fighting and work has allowed for. As usual, since it's politics, I don't give it a whole ton of thought. But what little thoughts I've given it are right there.
