tweet tweet


I've finally done it. I've succumbed to the madness that is twitter. Looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about, and having another thing to do when I feel like bludging but looking Very Busy And Important.


I like this explanation of Twitter from First Blog on the Moon

I like Twitter because it takes the funnest of inconsequential human interactions and turns them into a web application. It is a zillion overheard conversations at the shop, on the train, in the park. It is a quick chat in the hall at work with someone about something related not to work or related to it. You can dip in and out as you like. It makes eavesdropping a good thing (as if it wasn’t).


Are you on twitter? What's your favourite thing about it? Is there a twitter code of manners I ought to know about?

Oh ps. it would be cool if you followed me, but only if you want to.

BLAAHAHA I'm going to now add you and twitter-stalk ya. Nah! ehhe. We use it at work, to talk about whats happening in this large organisational shit hole we work in. So, from all our team's separate RSS feeds from twitter, we aggregate them in to a single feed which the boss subscribes to, in other words, he has an eye on what we're thinking about work or what we're working on ALL the time.

The IT department saw we were paying them out on twitter, so they started following us, of course blocked them though. hahah.. twitter is rife with spam and bots and stuff so be fairly vigilant in blocking any followers that you don't know. Search for me to follow me if you want to hear me blab on about stupid work stuff : ) my username is 'rolley' heh.
