“Twouble with Twitters” Funny animation vid explaining and condemning Twitter

April 14, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet via Funny in a, “I know there is something wrong but I just can’t stop it” kind of way. Sort like chocolate. Or, porn, for some people, I guess. “Who are you talking to?” “No one and every one!” Someone posted link to this vid as a comment to the thought-provoking “It’s Official […]

Wired article struck a cord and so I am copying and pasting the whole thing…

April 13, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet Ok. I am not really going to do this. But I just want to do something about this article: Scott Brown’s “Gag Reflexes” in Wired (April 2009). The online edition has a longer title: “Scott Brown on Stand-Up Comedy, Lingua Franca of the Wired World” which sums up Mr. Brown’s theory. Maybe crumple up […]

Power of Twitter got to @RainnWilson whose followers surpassed 100,000 today…

February 27, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet Who says that size does not matter? When I first started following Rainn Wilson (of The Office Dwight the Beet Farmer & B&B Operator fame) on Twitter, he only had a meagerly 60,000+ followers. And that was like, last week. Here is a Tweet that he just sent out, in celebration of the 100K […]

Celebrities on Twitter: @Stephenfry has the most followers because he rocks!

February 27, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet I cannot believe that in my previous post of celebrities that tweet I forgot about Demi Moore. Sorry Mrs. Kutcher. And of course, her lovely, always good to look at, but probably illegal for me to fantasize about because of his young age, Mr. Kutcher. Mr. Combs. How could I have forgotten Mr. Diddy? […]

There has been NO way for us common denizens to converse with celebrities. That is, until Twitter opened the door…

February 26, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet This is Twitter’s stated mission (or designed usage) on its homepage: “Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?”Here is my observation: most of the people are using Twitter, not to keep their […]

#Piqqem now has 270 followers…

February 20, 2009 random

Tweet It is amazing to see how a Tweep (or, what’s the name for a company/entity that tweets? And Christi on Southwest… is she a Tweep or is the Tweet Southwest’s?) grows the number of followers. I wonder whether there is a 3rd party Twitter apps. out there that tracks number of followers for selected […]

Crowd sourcing to beat the market: the new tag “$” on Twitter

February 18, 2009 random

Tweet Thanks to Wired, I know now what “$” and “#” mean in Twitter-nese. Yes, I am a N00b… The enigmatic title “On Twitter, $ Is the New #” serves as a test: If you have to ask, I guess this is not meant for you… I am ashamed to admit that I didn’t know […]


USAir crashed into Hudson River; Twitter received the first picture of the scene

January 15, 2009 a picture is worth a thousand words

Tweet This is the title of the blog entry: “U.S. Airways Crash Rescue Picture: Citizen Journalism, Twitter At Work“. A Twitterer sent a photo from his iPhone. This sort of illustrated what I talked about yesterday. I guess THIS itself is a great reason for Twitter… Instead of coming to my blog, or emailing everybody […]

To Tweet or Not to Tweet…

January 14, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet Upon learning my having joined the latest phenom which is Twitter, my male co-workers asked me point blank, But, WHY? Why not just use emails if you want to talk to people you know? Why not use TXT? You can email to an entire group of people if that’s your reasoning for using Twitter […]
