Hm, interesting what their TOS are.  Basically, if enough people block you or complain about you, you're toast.

Ok, ETA: this Twitter thing SUCKS ASS.  They need larger bandwidth or something.  Everytime I move in and out of the damned site, it says it's OVER CAPACITY.  Ugh.  Fail.

Fail Whale is Fail!

:lol:

Also, seems to be working ok today.  I was able to post up a couple of pieces of nonsense.  WTF, btw, is the agenda for this?  I keep hitting on subjects that are in the mega search thingie to the right.

For now, I am concentrating on moving between shit no-one cares about, and interesting links and comments.  Just enough to build up a reasonable amount of people following me.  Then I'm going to start slipping in meme-bombs, PD references and links.

How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Rebecca Watson of Skepchick just posted an awesome list of good skeptic/scientific Twittererereres:

Ellis was like the third person I subscribed to.

This is royally fucked up. For the THIRD time, it's telling me I'm using the wrong password, and I know for certain that I've got it right. If I have to reset it one more fucking time, I quit.

Yeah, dude, as a site it sucks balls.  I haven't posted yet.  I should just put an app on my phone if they have one.

Works fine for me, apart from occasional downtime.  Latest version of Firefox, Javascript allowed to run on site, and I have to say everything seems hunky-dory

Ugh, all the "Tweeting" apps are $.  I'm NOT paying to put this crap on my phone.  :lol:

Web-based it will have to be, then!

There are ways to send Tweets with text messages. Just go to Settings-> Device and add your phone number. I don't use it to receive updates from other people because I don't want hundreds of texts per day.

The only problem I've had with the site so far is that it has eaten several of my posts. I heard that they are working on that though.

Wait... I can notify everyone who's following me that I just took a massive shit by text message???

Surely there must be a catch.

Nope. That is the entire reason Twitter was invented.

Yeah, I don't need the text overages, either.  Hm...I think I'm happy just keeping it web-based.  AND I can always use safari.

ITT Discordian's who are thoroughly against social networking of this style go over to the dark side.

Hypocrisy FTW.
