I Officially Don’t Like Plurk

July 3, 2008

I officially don’t like Plurk.

From a User perspective, it is messy.  I am not used to navigating horizontally and it feels uncomfortable for me to do so.  I also don’t like having to chose or having the option to chose words like; gives, wants, hates, loves, feels, pukes.. Oops I meant plurks.

There is always 134090327 unread messages.

The only things I do like is the ability to embed media into the “plurks” and the fluidity of conversation.

Since those things are key, there is a possibility that I won’t always be a hater.

Twitter can break down all it wants to… I’m still a fan.

Twitter People You Should Follow

April 18, 2008

Twitter obsessed and starving for social success, the new Twitter follow referring site Twubble is awesome.

If it catches on than many users will be vewy Twubbled by the amount of follower requests they are receiving. Haha.. get it? Twubbled?

Anyways…

Another downfall to it… It will always suggest you befriend @scobleizer (if your not already). This is because it works based on common followers, just like Facebook’s; People You May Know, and not based on interests or similar terms. And it is listed from most important Twitter users to least important, as you can tell.

For some reason this Facebook feature, while I understand it, really bothers me because tons of people are requesting to be my friend. Thankfully I have enabled the new Facebook privacy settings

I am definitely going to take advantage of Twubble and expand my network! So if @Frozen2late requests to follow you… now you know why.

Politicians are Following Me!

About 2 weeks ago, my Blackberry started going insane. It was notifying me about the 20 new Twitter followers I had in about 20 minutes. Naturally, I suffered from PVS <Phantom Vibrate Syndrome> the rest of the day.

All of the followers, were names of politicians. It would make sense that I am not the only one this is happening to. Obviously I understand the value of these politicians, or rather the marketing dept’s of them, following me on Twitter. But something about this strikes me as wrong!

So in response to Politicians following me on Twitter:
