@aramadge A massive influx of new people to any community causes resentment. Nothing new there. But is that your angle for tomorrow? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to aramadge

@aramadge You’re trying the meta approach then? Being negative about the folks being negative about a massive influx? ;)

Ccameronreilly What is the difference between “playing with” and “gaming” Twitter? Discuss. (And why not have fun as well as be serious?)

Fark! Watching all the new folk with a first tweet “Watching Rove” via http://twitterfall.com/ … Hat-tip @SilkCharm. TV not dead yet.

via Twitter Web Client

@SilkCharm I hope you’re telling all the newbies that they should follow me ‘cos I’m “interesting”. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@SilkCharm Hey what are you looking at ME for? I’m innocent, as this blog post explains: http://is.gd/lg9b

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@SoCalDeni O hai! The background to the the whole meme is at http://is.gd/lg9b I think I may go and hide.

via Twitter Web Client

Something very wrong just happened on Twitter and only @SnarkyPlatypus knows why.

via Twitter Web Client

Is this right? We’re attempting to commit trend fisting with ? It can’t POSSIBLY beat ! http://is.gd/lg9b

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Your deductive logic needs some attention, both on the “deductive” side, and also on the “logic”.

RT @johnhalton: Set yourself free from the herd and just say your own thing. [Yes. Please pass it on.]

via Twitter Web Client

Are you all happy now? Check http://twitscoop.com/ … though you’ve a little way to go yet to get to #1.

via Twitter Web Client

BTW, if you need ALL the action, you can always follow @f1ster. Apparently. (No, it’s not me.)

via Twitter Web Client

@lnchus O hai! So, what the world needs, eh? Another URL-shortening service. http://lnch.us/ There you go, you’ve been spammed. [pats]

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Badgers fisting the beavers from behind? I hope my brain doesn’t process that image

RT @GreenJ: I myself am inordinately fond of badger fisting. You should see those little guys squirm.

via Twitter Web Client

@mtats Ah yes, the “Definitive metal family tree” is useful too. http://is.gd/lhHl About the music than just the names, though.

via Twitter Web Client

A taxonomy of heavy metal band names, sort of. Or is it more a Mindmap? http://is.gd/lfu2

via Twitter Web Client

@TunaCrust [smirks] Well done. Hope you’re coping with my, erm, “varierty” of Twitterage.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TunaCrust

@bluecardigan You predicted a Twitter trend. http://is.gd/lhDp It happened. http://is.gd/lg9b Thought you should know.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile with @ApostrophePong to Enmore Rd and stuff.

via Twitter Web Client

@dananimal You’re welcome! BTW, @ApostrophePong was taking photos at Kooky last night, they’ll be online at some point.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dananimal

@mzjaygee Hey I did very little, really. ;) Anyway, I blogged about the at http://is.gd/lg9b and comments are coming in.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mzjaygee

@RozP I think the whole point is that you COULDN’T get something mundane like or to trend like .

@john_chr If there IS a second wave of , it’ll show up at http://is.gd/lgmR (note that graph’s in AEDT).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to john_chr

OK. Hi, many new followers! My “policy” is at http://is.gd/hLw8 But just say hello if you want to start a conversation. I see all @replies.

via Twitter Web Client

@posty Well this is what happens when “serious news” people talk about with Barack and Michelle: http://is.gd/gEFx

via Twitter Web Client in reply to posty

@Miktar Thanks for pointing out the new term “trend fisting”. That’s mentioned in my blog post. http://is.gd/lg9b

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bugger. I’ll go and fix those links now…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kcarruthers Huh? “Naughtiness”? Excuse me! This is Science!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Now I wonder whether RTs of my blog post will cause “trend fisting” to trend again. http://is.gd/lg9b

via Twitter Web Client

Blogged: “Fisting Twitter and the birth of ‘trend fisting’” http://is.gd/lg9b “Fisting” in 0.5% of tweets globally!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Google Translate ne peut pas traduire ce que je veux dire. Il ya un mot que Google ne connaît pas. Et tu?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OK, enough about Rove and Twitter from m for now. I may write more later, but I have to write about Senator Xenophon now.

via Twitter Web Client

@jtimmo @Jayne13 YouTube has the Lily Allen interview http://is.gd/ll9R but not what came later during Rove’s own comments.

via Twitter Web Client

Can someone who watched Rove last night confirm whether he did or didn’t do a “call to action” asking people to join Twitter? If so, words?

via Twitter Web Client

@GaryPHayes Sir, how accurate would you say your “1300 new Twittererers thanks to Rove” estimate is?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GaryPHayes

@JustinLee76 Oh I’ve written quite a few Crikey pieces about Internet censorship .;) http://is.gd/28pR Maybe another very soon, @GreenJ?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JustinLee76

@JustinLee76 Correct, I do indeed write occasionally for Crikey.com.au. Why do you ask?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JustinLee76

@Nickhodge I do not need to be knowing about which women you find cute, do I? Is this something I need to know?

@jmacmullin If we can combine shark attacks and poor drinking water with then we have a chance… ;)

Mon plan: A morning of writing kicks off a day of desk-like pottering; evening gym/dinner with @SnarkyPlatypus, making up for last week.

Here’s the video: Lily Allen talks Twitter on last night’s “Rove Live” http://is.gd/ll9R [I can’t believe watching this counts as “work”.]

via Twitter Web Client

@TheBloggess O hai. Yes, YOU are the inspiration for the meme on Twitter. ;) Well, sort of. http://is.gd/ll9g http://is.gd/lg9b

@juhasaarinen I find it useful to group by focus, even conversations (using searches, which I flip and change frequently).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to juhasaarinen

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai une preuve statistique! Le présentateur de télévision court est plus populaire que la main-insertion. Et tu?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@juhasaarinen Yup. @simone said she wanted to not miss Perth people’s tweets, so split them of into a slower-moving panel on Tweetdeck.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to juhasaarinen

@simone If a high-volume Twitterstream drowns out your more-important people, try Tweetdeck and create a “Perth” group.

via Twitter Web Client

@BreakfastNews Forget your tabloid shark attacks headlines. How many children are dying worldwide RIGHT NOW thru no clean drinking water?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

TV host Rove McManus 3x as Twitterpopular as . http://tinyurl.com/blr5r7 More analysis to come later today.

Emerges. Cautiously. Again.

OK, that’s enough for me. Wake me if something important happens. Otherwise I’ll discover it thru data mining tomorrow. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@rmccue Yes, thank you, the story is at http://is.gd/lg9b Tonight’s spike is less impressive though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rmccue

@middleclassgirl Good night. Be nice. And “meme” was coined by Richard Dawkins, I believe, in an early book.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@voirol Oh thank you. Yes, the follower count is climbing. Again. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. JUST PAY ME MOAR MONEYZ YOUSE CUNTS!

via Twitter Web Client

You will all be pleased to know that the trends at search.twitter.com are now … in that order.

@firstdogonmoon I don’t know what ANYTHING means any more. The last 72 hours have been totally disorienting.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@nathanlindorff Well, does ANYONE know what they’re starting? ;) Some interesting data to mine, certainly!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nathanlindorff

RT @GaryPHayes: According to http://twurl.nl/25dekr 725 news Australian’s have signed up to Twitter using the words “watching rove” + others

via Twitter Web Client

@The_Rooster “Gaming” implies an ulterior motive, fraud. The thing was an actual trend as people ran with the conversation.
