    I does! as of today. Loves it.

    yup. twitter is rather addictive. great places for putting random little thoughts. stephenfry would have to be my favourite person on it.

    I thought it was pretty useless in Australia because our SMS system is so different to the US and other countries? Or am I thinking of something else?
  • halften wrote on 22 Dec '08, 16:49 report
    you can sms updates, and you can receive updates by sms, but you can also just do it via the internet.

    thanks for the stephenfry link. maybe you're thinking of something else dsl - it's basically a glorified status update page BUT it can be used for lots of cool things. We have twittered events and conferences at work, I have pollies and other dudes on my feed who post interesting links and thoughts then there's all sorts of inane crap from people I know (and care about) so it's just a nice thing to while away the time and often lead yuo on to other more interesting things.

    I searched for 'Satan' on twitscoop... here's my favourites.

    "My wallet was stolen at church once. Crazy the things Satan tries to throw at us on Sundays!"

    "i'll believe in science when they invent a drug that stops kids from worshiping satan."

    "o_O can they actually say 'Satan's rectum' on a cartoon?"

    "omg i HATE world of warcraft more than satan hates big, puffy happy white clouds."

    "Satan in Church looks like Ricardo montleban"

    elmo keep is on rockwhiz, recording tomorrow, i did find out today. among other things. i think it is the site i don;t like so much as the service, have'nt hooked it up through fb or any other aggregator as yet.
  • dork wrote on 29 Jan '09, 11:08 report
    my work was named one of Australia's top ten twitterer's in the Age today.

    well i'm hooked regardless of how shit other people think it is. it's a good work site, little tid bits are good when you're in a busy office.
  • pixel wrote on 29 Jan '09, 11:47 report
    I don't think it really works for me at this stage cos I don't "follow" enough people.
  • dork wrote on 29 Jan '09, 11:49 report
    check out people's friends list and see if there's anyone of interest you might like to follow. generally people will find you after a while and you will find them. it takes a while before it becomes worthwhile, for sure.
  • dork wrote on 29 Jan '09, 11:49 report
    follow stephen fry. he says "OMG" a lot.

    never has the term "party animal" seemed more appropriate for a photo caption.

    OK that weirdo just dropped off my radar - probably coz I didn't "follow" him in return. no way was I getting involved in that weirdo's cult business pseudo-marketing shtick

  • vermin wrote on 25 Mar '09, 23:32 report
    I'm still not on this bandwagon.

    Maybe when I get a better phone next month. Maybe. I just don't see the point. It just smacks of bigdickery to me. Oh look what a wonderful life I have. Follow me around!

    Mind you I resisted Facebook for ages too, however I did eventually give in to that and do admit it is quite useful.

  • dork wrote on 27 Mar '09, 14:45 report
    yeah that's been doing the rounds. i dunno - i do understand why people find it useless but i've discovered lots of new things just by doing a little float around. and it was hardly created to revolutionise society as we know it.

    that cartoon is funny up until he plays the old "get off the internet and into the real world and get some real friends" card. I thought that was kinda lame.
  • harto wrote on 27 Mar '09, 15:12 report
    there's this unusual sensation of "connectedness" that I felt when I joined. I was very sceptical of twitter at first (had similar thoughts to others - you know, who gives a fuck if you are having a cup of coffee, or whatever) - but I've found it to be kind of nice to have on in the background - updates gently streaming in, you can take a look and see what's what, or share a thought or two - and yeah, there's this weird feeling I got - of connectedness, or something - that I find hard to describe, but which is why I've stuck with it.
  • dork wrote on 27 Mar '09, 15:18 report
    i actually find it a bit more useful than facebook. mainly because i can use facebooks to keep in touch with people and events but twitter to see what people i actually give two shits about are up to. i also get entertainment from people like the face stephen conroy. I can get little snippets from organisations i'm interested in without having to ring them or join their mailing list or check their website. i can get all sorts of links to all sorts of articles and photos and stats from people that i know or am interested in following and hence have read about things that i never would have looked at before.

    It's good for fairly passive people like myself who rarely have the energy to surf the web just to find random shit. I like it to be shown to me.

    I understand facebook has the status updates thing but for some reason they haven't evolved in quite the way twitter updates have.

    I agree.

    One thing that annoys me a bit is the #Hashtag frenzy going on.

    Recent example: "Lots of sirens going off in #Leichhardt. Not sure why, though."

    Now, I understand it's handy for searching buzzwords (like #FollowFriday, which I think is pretty neat). I understand it's handy for microblogging news updates (people in Leichhardt who are wondering about the sirens can search that hashtag for recent tweets).

    It just seems so sucky though. Why bother?

    Maybe I'm just taking it all too #seriously. LET'S GO!!!
  • digi wrote on 28 Mar '09, 17:29 report
    I don't like it. All it takes is a dick like me to post 10 or so pointless updates and your searching to find the stuff you're interested in.

    I'm getting less and less interested in all these social networking sites, but if you're not on them in this day and age you're somewhat isolated.

    Facebook pissed me off because they sent me two warnings to which I couldn't easily either appeal or respond to. When I did find a way of letting them know how I think they're idiots they didn't respond.

    Google has a new one, orkut.com/… it's the same shit over again.

    MySpace has good intentions in relation to music, but visually and practically it's atrocious.
  • spirit lust wrote on 28 Mar '09, 17:42 report
    Yeah. I still find social networks interesting, maybe I'm less jaded than you.

    But I think with sites like search.twitter.com/ the whole Hashtag thing is a bit redundant, tryhard and #annoying #to #read.

    EDIT: I've just researched more into Hashtags.

    If you follow the user @hashtags, every #hashtag you post will be added to the hashtags.org list of topics.

    So there you go. I guess just I don't care much.

    I'm getting less and less interested in all these social networking sites, but if you're not on them in this day and age you're somewhat isolated.


    And MySpace is still really good for music; I'll hit on a band's MySpace before their website, because it's a universal format that I know how to negotiate (lazy journalist card?).

    Speaking of music, I searched "Hobart music" on Twitter: search.twitter.com/…
  • dork wrote on 28 Mar '09, 18:56 report
    Digi: There are applications that can help you easier keep up with twitter by dividing people into categories. simple

    spiritlust: I avoide hashtags unless they are useful - haven't found a useful one yet therefore i'm just not ruling them out. People, such as Stephen Fry and Peter Serafenowicz have used them for comps which I think is useful.

    MYspace is still totally relevent but they keep trying to be facebook rather than focusing on what they are good at and fixing their design. fuck the design is terrible
