I know there is a plug-in that will show a running total of my Twitter activity, but for some reason, I feel like Twitter isn’t going to last long and I’ll lose all this data. I’m keeping it here. Does obsessively collecting my bits and pieces from around the web that I don’t control insane? Should I get a psychiatrist?

Twitter has been really useful to use during the conference. At one point, Mike said, “How did you know George was at the Legos?” I held up my phone.

Last night, Twitter won an award. I’m glad they have success, but I suspect that means that Twitter is going to be flipped and I’ll lose all my data. Still transferring my logs here:

My Internet connectivity was so patchy today that I hardly Twittered at all. Plus, I was so angry at the Frag Dolls that I couldn’t say anything. I am STILL too angry to talk about it.

Twitter was slow yesterday. I wonder if they kept the SXSW Twitter monitors up during the music portion of SXSW. Are they getting a bunch of indie rockers to sign up for them now?

Twitter is still really slow and they have “temporarily” taken down the IM feature. Mike and I were talking about it last night and I don’t think they’ll be around for much longer. They really seem like a company meant to be flipped. If they aren’t purchased soon, they will collapse under their own weight. If they are, whoever buys them will bugger them up somehow.

Why Twitter Is Appealing… to some

Filed under: General,Twitter Log — Laura Moncur @ 8:38 am

I haven’t been able to fully articulate why I like Twitter so much, but this article from The Globe and Mail was pretty close.

Tara also has a brilliant piece on why Twitter may help historians piece together our lives in this century:

It seems that only a few people really enjoy Twitter, but the ones that do REALLY do. Short Twitter Log yesterday.

  • Awake…barely. Eating cinnamon toast and drinking warm milk with a bit of coffee. #
  • No spam in the Quotations Forum! Yeah! It just makes me feel all warm and happy inside! :) #
  • Reading RSS. The blogosphere is upset about Kathy Sierra’s death threats and finally admits that they also have received threats. #
  • Time to play Animal Crossing with Kristen. She wants to come to my town this week. #
  • Kristen wasn’t home, so I have been reading weblogs and pouting… #
  • Finished playing Animal Crossing with Kristen. I healed her sick cat. She visited my lonely animals. Now, it’s off to Office Depot. #
  • Hangin’ at Beast Buy. Is “Princess Stories” good for little girls? #

  • Here’s a better link: http://www.kottke.org/remainder/07/03/13097.html #

  • Playing some Guitar Hero all by myself. Mike usually gets us through the hard songs, but I’m going to have a career that’s just me… #
  • Back to the computer. #
  • @ newspapergrl There is no safety for any of us. The sooner we realize that, the less problems we’ll have. #
  • Back to Guitar Hero. I know I should be working, but playing is more fun! #

  • Mike says Twitter isn’t cool anymore. There’s a new application called Blather that everyone is getting into. #
  • I’m joking… #
  • The saddest part is that I didn’t even make up the joke. I stole it from Mike… I need to work on some new material… #
  • @ ThomAllen Mike uses Transmit. He says it seems stable so far. #
  • Just watched Mike blaze through Guitar Hero on Medium. It was killing me earlier today. #
  • Going to bed now. Night, night, Twitter friends! #
  • Up and at ‘em! Just heard from another winner of the Race Across USA. If I had known that only 3 winners would claim their prizes… #

  • @ Phil801 Thanks for the TwitterTools recommend. It works great and I don’t have to do anything. #
  • The Starling Fitness DVDs have hit some sort of tipping point. I’m getting orders almost every day. #

  • Finished exercising. A quick shower and then back to work. #
  • @ Cinegage We have to stop feeding the trolls. They’re watching Twitter. #
  • @ ThomAllen eBay. You can get pretty good buys on music equipment there. Just make sure you buy from someone reputable. #
  • Looking for a SDHC card reader that will fit into a PCMIA slot on my laptop. Seems like I’ll have to go to Japan to get one… #
  • @ Halcyon Sorry to hear about your grandpa. He was awesome and will be missed by so many. Thank you for letting us meet him. #

  • They’re going pro next Tuesday. #
  • Coding Deathmatch None of their engineers solved the problem, but they hired 4 engineers. Second Coding Deathmatch starts April 14th. #

  • Feeling myself become unattached to Twitter the longer I’m away from home. Writing blog entries before Disneyland this morning. #
  • Just wrote a Gadgets Page entry on Catholic Mobile: http://tinyurl.com/2clrqk #
  • Waiting in line for the Jedi Training Academy. I wish they would let me fight Stormtoopers! #
  • Waiting for the Princess Luncheon to start. The families attending are much more normal than I expected. #
  • On the Disneyland Railroad stopped at Tomorrowland. Headed to the Grand Canyon and DINOSAURS! #
  • Haunted Mansion: My favorite ride of the park. Why don’t they take a picture of me on this ride? #

  • Exhausted outside the World of Disney store. Two miles from the hotel and wondering how I’ll get there. #
  • Smells like popcorn and crying children. #
  • Deleting spam. Why is it that I start every day deleting spam from my inbox, comments and forums? Special Hell for them… #
  • Just finished writing some blog entries. Gotta get going so we can go to the Aquarium of the Pacific today. FISHY, FISHY, FISHY!! #
  • The rain has stuffed three buses of schoolchildren into The Aquarium of the Pacific. Too crowded… #

  • Wake up, twitches! It’s Saturday mornin’ cartoon time! Heading to Jean, Nevada today. They closed Nevada Landing, so we’re at Gold Strike. #
  • Happy Birthday, Waxy!! #
  • Packing up to leave. When will I learn to pack light? #
  • Peche Iambic? Is that a new kind of poetry? #
  • Just breezed past Barstow. I never realized how small it was until we drove 0.9 miles along Barstow Road. #
  • Just checked in at the Gold Strike in Jean. Decided it’s not worth the bother to drive into Las Vegas for dinner. We’ll buffet it here. #

  • Played Sims 2 for 2 hours. I’m finished with the story arc, but I still love to play. #

  • I’m up, but unwilling to shower. I have 6 hours of driving ahead of me and I’m not looking forward to it. Invent “Instant Home” for me, K? #
  • I don’t want to go back to SLC. I like the weather in SD better. I already want to go back. #

  • Good morning, twitches. I’ve been up for 3.5 hours, but I’ve been playing games. Dessert first, I say! #
  • GEEK DINNER TONIGHT!!! I’m totally stoked!! #
  • Writing about not wanting to write. #
  • @ lisawilliams Hi, babe! Hope you’re doing fine. #
  • @ Ryanne Why is it bullshit? They’re using less electricity & water. That’s good, right? #
  • @ Ryanne Then vote with your wallet. No Coke, Diet Coke, or anything else they make. #
  • @ Ryanne Make a video about it. This seems to be a really important issue. Explain it to everyone. #
  • @ Ryanne Maybe they’re just being held for review and haven’t been reviewed yet. #
  • It’s worse when you’re server is down and it’s your own FRACKIN’ fault. #
  • @ Ryanne No, the next step will be Diet Coke Naturale #
  • @ ashbuckles No, but when we are, it’s usually our fault. #
  • I’m at AppleBee’s for the Geek Dinner and they’re trying to squish us into a booth! #
