I met some nice gentlemen at the Sixpoint event last night and thought I might enjoy having a beer with them in the future and so asked them for their Twitter IDs. It was actually a really nice, non-invasive way of being like "Hey! Let's hang out some time"

If he wants to foot the bill, I say do it.

Also, Hootsuite is the shit.

I really like Tweetie 2, though it's disappointing that it can't geotag my tweeted photos via Moby.

Basically, I like Hootsuite because I can arrange the tweets in one column and my replies in another and schedule important update-type tweets to go out when most people are watching (i.e. noon, instead of 3am when most updates actually get posted.)

Although my fingers keep wanting to type "hootshite". Not a good branding decision, IMO.

just learned today that my students have a specific hash tag (that's the # thing, right?) that they use for quoting me in tweets, which is kind of terrifying because I make a lot of off-hand, almost stream-of-consciousness asides that I'd mostly hate to see preserved anywhere. I think I need to train myself to trail off into mumbling about five clauses earlier than I already do as a way of combating this.

What you need to do is find out what the hash tag is.

honeypot, baby. just let one drop in class that you know has got to get quoted, and make sure there's a very distinctive word in it.

I approve of both coldie's and auto's ideas here.  Seriously, find out the hashtag, then tell us what it is!

So the key to ignoring annoying people without unceremoniously unfollowing them is to make a list with the people you care about in it and just reading that, yes? (Assuming you're using a client that doesn't have the handy dandy "mute" function.)

IN THE INTEREST OF FULL DISCLOSURE:

I followed a handful of youse on the twurtscapes today.  If your twitter name is similar to your lptj name and you are being followed by someone whose twitter name can be reduced to this name, then it was me.

Jim, it seems a spam account is repeating half of a thing you said:

I'm exceedingly puzzled by this what-I-assume-is-spam account:

It seems to be spam made only... for.. me?  But why?  What sinister purpose could it have?

It's cute except that it's obviously a relation (on the Robot side of Greg's family).  GROSS.

Conclusion lately reached: Brizzly fucking sucks. I don't know why I stuck with it so long when they've obviously got zero interest in improving it.
