Goodbye, Twitter

There are lots of Twitter critics out there, and I have rolled my eyes at their criticism over the past several years in blog posts on this site. My opinion of most of their opinions has changed very little. I still believe most of them are wrong about their objections. For the most part, Twitter

Biden debates McCain because Palin didn’t show up

I’ll have more commentary in the morning, but that was my initial impression of the debate — Biden took on McCain on every single answer because Palin didn’t bother to actually answer any of the questions, and instead fell back on buzz words and drivel and cutesy, folksy nonsense. I thought it was a clear

Why Twitter?

To make bitter people write bad humor articles, of course. My friend Dan was googling his twitter ID (funny!) and discovered he’d been quoted in a “humor” article about Twitter on Funny Times, which he of course shared with his twitter pals, because – even more funny. Too bad that the article was yet another

Weekend Update 2007-06-03

We went to Woodruff Place Flea Market yesterday, and only got done with middle drive before I pooped out because I was hot and tired. It was also kind of a pain with Spike. I’ve taken him to it before, but it was far more crowded this time, so I had to think about him

More Twitter Stuff

Now that I’ve reached a critical mass of friends who used twitter, some of the designers that I had added to my friends list back in SXSW are getting annoying. I kept a bunch of them because it was interesting to hear what they were working on during the day and how they approached design

Adding the Twitter RSS feeds of my friends and family members to my feed reader, so I can catch up with them later if I miss something. I’m really excited that my sister Stacy is now on Twitter – just hearing little updates from England at about a 7 hour time shift is really entertaining,

Twitter Related Fun

Twitterific is a great little Macintosh program that lets you get (and make) your twitter updates without having to have the browser window open. There does seem to be a couple of similar Window/PC programs that lets you do the same thing – Twitterlicious is one, and Twitbox is another. I’ve never used either, so

Forbes on Twitter

David M Ewalt from Forbes on the subject of Twitter: “I’m not interested in what you had for breakfast.” Yeah, I’m not interested in what you had for breakfast either. That’s why I don’t follow you on twitter, ass. I do care what my friends had for breakfast; therefore I follow them. I’m sorry you’re

Twitter

Shorter review: Simple, and seemingly frivolous web communication tool. But I can see it really working as a fun, handy IM/mobile texting tool for my friends, if I can only herd all of them onto it. What Twitter is: It’s a really simple, public blog. You post short (less than 140 characters) messages about what

Twitter

Twitter is a strange little social network application that lets you give short bulletins of what you’re doing right now. You can update via text message or Instant Messenger, as well as online. You can link to your friends to see what they’re doing, and you can use the built in RSS feeds to keep
