Twitter?

I've been trying to hunt down a twitterpost that is up to date here on windows 7 forums, but I can't find any. So here it goes!

Post your twitter here! Always fun with some new people to follow. Especially people that have small things in common, like windows 7.

I think I can understand why it doesn't sound so alluring.

So just so we're clear, Twitter is just a short blog correct? I have not bothered with it yet... or blogging at all. Just don't want to be ignorant!

Twitter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It is also something with a slightly annoying name.

All this stuff gets more and more like George Orwell's Newspeak in his classic novel 1984.

For the more "Literary challenged" people this was a book depicting a completely totalitarian state where History was continually being re-wriiten and standard english was being whittled down piece by piece until eventually the only vocabulary would be "Party Slogans". (remind people of the current "NU-LABOUR" government in the UK at the moment -- although politicians world wide seem to be just as bad if not even worse).

The whole idea of reading TEXT (I HATE bad spelling / grammar etc etc) and this abomination called twitter makes me want to vomit.

What's wrong in using language PROPERLY -- why does everything have to be split up into nibble size pieces.

Leave twittering to "our feathered friends".

Cheers

At least Newspeak made a lot more sense

I can understand the usage of abbreviations in texting, as it is a lot more expedient on a mobile phone (don't like it, but can understand it). But when you have a keyboard, there really is no excuse.

The adoption of incorrect spelling as 'cool' is another particularly annoying trend. It takes me 3 times as long to decipher what I'm reading and I'm unsure whether these people are actually uneducated or just following a trend.

+1 Being an old fart, I have a heck of a time trying to figure out what some of them are saying. Often just move on rather than bother.

Twitter?
Hi, The fonts sizes of tweets that I post don't remain the same, despite that I check it on MS word about type and size, but when posted/copied, they are not the same? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Do we really need Twitter?
We hear so much lately of the trouble and distress caused by people abusing others on Twitter that I wonder if it is, in fact, more trouble then it is worth. I don't use it myself as I think it is a time waster but that is just my view and I know it is not shared by all! What's your view on it's...

Is it just me with Facebk, Twitter etc
Here is a topic I'd really like to hear some views about. Essentially I'm referring to websites listing on Facebk and asking you to follow them on Twitter ... etc. I can understand Facebk as a networking site ... it's great to keep in touch with basic messages. When my son went overseas the only...
