I don't think we started a thread on this.

I know Charles is on Twitter, and so am I. It's a microblogging service that people use for assorted things.

www.twitter.com

I follow a lot of other writers and journalists. Good way to promote yourself.

And I use it as a means of tracking and sharing the things my kids do (some find these amusing, X finds them "inspirational to never have kids")... and then I "follow" people who spend most of their day making smartass comments and dirty jokes. Good times.

Eventually I will get on Twitter, I just started a Facebook (nothing on it yet) and am getting my Myspace page working....the page I have had for 3 years and did nothing with until this month. YIKES!

CP, I need to chat w/ you about Hissmonster.com, too.

anyway, since you all are already on twitter, guess I will have to check it out....what I really would like is one main page to control all networking sites so I only have to input 1 time!

A girl can dream.

It takes all your feeds from twitter, facebook, myspace, etc.

really, not playing dumb, how's it work...like a one stop control panel?

in other words, say I wanted to post a story to all three, could I do it there or is it more complicated?

Wow, never saw that post, Hiss. I don't really know specifically how FriendFeed works (although I have an account) because I've never used it.

Saw this today about how Twitter can help your writing:

I'm avoiding twitter. It seems to me like what annoys me most about Facebook (constant updates by a few people). I am on facebook if anyone wants to look me up...

I have yet to jump on Twitter. I'm waiting until we get to 65 characters or less.

i'm sorry, y'all, but if you have nothing better or more interesting to do than follow random bits of my life, I think society needs to step in and take drastic measures, before you decide to reproduce.

Well, we do read your posts on here already. . . ;)

I've always said some people use it for good, some people use it for evil.

My personal favorite use of Twitter is to annoy CP and tell him how I had pie to eat. Like today.

I can't believe CP is on Twitter....

I'm trying to start a new religion on twitter... the Church of the 3 Cs... Coffee, Chocolate, and Cheese. There's a Pope of Pie, a Cardinal of Chevre, and a Sultan of Caffeine. It's not gaining much traction yet, but in the meantime I can make smartass comments. Twitter, for me, is less "social media" and more "anti-social media".

lol..sultan of Caffeine...I love it! Here's to the darker forces lurking in you. :twisted:

Unsatisfied with the taste of other deities you eat, which apparently only taste like crackers and some form of juiced grapes (fermented or not depending on how he's theologically aged), I'm proposing a more practical (and tasty) worship of consumable Gods. We don't ask for 10% of your income either, all you need to be cleansed of your sins is $75 cents and a snack machine. If you've been REALLY bad, you can be redeemed with an espresso or latte drink of your own choosing (the Sultan of Caffeine keeps a vial of Turkish coffee on him at all times for emergency purposes... like the Saint Bernard's cask around his neck). Lord Coffee is a jealous God, but not so jealous as to be unwilling to give you credit for caffeine consumption should you choose to drink Tea instead.

I assume Pepsi is an under-God of Caffeine. It must be so because I worship him daily. It's a cult and I can't break free. I've tried. :pepsi:

So that's what that drivel was about the other day.
