Anyone Twitter?

Recommended Posts

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.

Yep, but I'm in marketing and social media is an element of marketing.

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.

    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
    • Getting an old set and having them adjusted is not going to yield you any better results financially than getting a new set. If you're looking for the most bang for the buck, look at www.thegolfworks.com and get a set of their maltby irons built to your spec and flex.  They're only about $299 for the whole set.   The woods are just as amazing but you could find a used OEM driver for cheaper.   
    • Not surprised, they're great looking and performing clubs.
