Twitter?
« on: May 10, 2009, 01:52:50 am »
Does anyone here use Twitter, besides me?

If you're not familiar with it, Twitter is a "microblogging" service.  Basically, it exists for people to post text-message-sized updates of what they're doing, with an emphasis on real-time communication and rapid posting.  Put another way, it's like group text messaging.  It has little practicality, but it's a fun toy :-)

Part of its appeal lies in the fact that you can update it from pretty much any device, too.  In addition to the website (which also has a nicely-designed mobile version), it also has text-message/SMS bridges for all major cell carriers, and it has a well-documented API that's been used to write dozens of applications for various devices (smartphones/javaphones and PDAs), platforms (every OS has Twitter apps), and applications (browser and email client plugins, web application add-ons, etc).

Anyway, I was curious to see if anyone else here uses it.  If you want to follow my updates there, my username is Lupinia.

I can't stand Twitter, the cartoon on Youtube got to me first xD Granted, I'm considering getting account if only instead of talking about RL, I use it to keep track of progress on projects and such.

Brent Spiner, the fellow that played Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation, has been using twitter to play a sort of character of himself, lately! I haven't seen the whole thing yet, but the story is that Brent Spiner is wanted by the police (I think.. he seems to be running away from somebody, or somebodies) and is running around trying to hide and diguise himself so he won't be caught. He updates as if he were this version of Brent Spiner. It's interesting!

I use Twitter. My name is Rogerandom. I just sort of update every now and then to share random thoughts or musings, or share what I'm up to.
I got thirsty and drank my pet water. :c

I've been thinking about getting a twitter.  If I do, it'll probably just be random brain-thoughtss.  What do y'all think?  y/n?

Well, that's basically what Twitter is, a brain-dump repository :-P

I have a LJ I have yet to post anything in... that will hopefully become my braindump. I can get into long rants and stuff that aren't allowed on Twitter.

Twitter; anybody even have one? I'm looking for people who do. I don't know, just add me if you do XD
want more friends on that thing. I'll do the same if you add me.

And anybody who does do twitter, did you make one and completly leave it after the first day, or are who a twitter-crack addict?
Nick, when are you going to stop being a smartass!
