@GreenJ I like it when you call me “donkey”. It shows you share certain special, private knowledge about me. ;)

RT @mpesce: Rove being particularly unfunny about teh Twitter, from Sunday: http://is.gd/lOVS [Also with Lily Alen http://is.gd/ll9R.]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Toto makes the train delays feel more meaningful. [Is that because “Africa” was also the last song we heard at dinner?]

@NewtonMark But this is what I mean. I left 891 Adelaide in 1991, and the SAME people are there! Comfortable. Old. Slippers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Peter Goers? That’s not tea at his “tea party” on 891 Adelaide, that’s pure Angostura Bitters.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Mind you, I felt like I was pushing shit uphill. Too often the programs felt like a lovely little afternoon tea party.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Well, when I worked for ABC Local Radio back when it was Morse, we tried to be more than a companion for the feeble and elderly.

via Twitter Web Client

Hey ABC! Here old boy! Shuffle over here, ya mangy old bugger and wrap your gums around this. We’ll have a quiz soon, win a gardening book.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce But… Stewart OR Rove, SOMEONE ELSE has to make it real first? ABC ceded leadership in defining issues. Old dog has no teeth.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

RT @stephenconroy: Yes, let’s get rid of ABC Local Radio. For too long have people outside of SYD and MEL had local, relevant coverage!

via Twitter Web Client

NATIONAL FUCKIN’ BROADCASTER MY ARSE! Andi Thorpe was right: ABC = World’s largest sheltered workshop.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Precisely. And how do @702abcsydney intro Twitter? By playing Jon Stewart! Not by reflecting ABC’s own use! Or other Aust media.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

RT @mpesce: Odd. @702abcsydney tweets a question, asks to phone or text in a reply. Is it me, or DID THEY JUST MISS TEH FSCKING POINT??!?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @mpesce: That’s harsh. I *love* ABC Local Radio. It’s…just…so…non-threatening! [Yes, like a 18yo dog you can’t bear to put down.]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @mediahunter It’s official:Twitter has broken thru. Newcastle Herald, paper for Luddites, has 2 pieces on Twitter 2day.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce For 6yos they have after-school care. For those who stopped leaning new things when they turned 35, there is ABC Local Radio.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce The ENTIRE audience of ABC Local Radio is “GET OFF MY LAWN!!!” Listening for 10 mins today reminded me how much I’ve moved on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@ireckon I don’t mind “new media” so much. “More than a decade” is still the blink of an eye in historical terms.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ireckon

RT @zbender: @stephenfry asks a question instead of Googling, thousands of people reply, and that word becomes top trend on Twitter. Mad!

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I see @702abcsydney is still back at “Twitter is something new and weird and like CB radio and I don’t understand it”.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @andrewbarnett: FFS ABC Radio: Windows media or Real Player? Are we still in 1999?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Je crois que c’est ce que vous imaginez quand vous imaginez-moi, oui? http://is.gd/lOdG

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus J’ai non seulement l’impression que Jennifer Beals, à la fin de Flashdance, JE SUIS Jennifer Beale. La transsubstantiation!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@adambspencer Unless you ask @mpesce about “trend ” then your coverage of Twitter is by definition out of date. http://is.gd/lg9b

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il ya une certaine sensation particulière, une sensation, je ne peux pas décrire. C’est merveilleux! Et toi?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Emerges. Ah, Thursday… what a concept!

via Twitter Web Client

OK, energy depleted. I’m sure there’s things I should reply to or even acknowledge but my eyes are falling out. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

I just composed three viciously nasty tweets about @SnarkyPlatypus because I’m jealous of the attention but I deleted them ‘cos I’m so nice.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @seancarmody: Blog post: Kerry O’Brien, you’ve got your facts wrong! http://bit.ly/7iQvV

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, yes, you’re an individual… You’re “special”. [pats]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@newcbrn @lyndons @thatdavidmiller @ireckon As you may have gathered, I’m not a big fan of pseudo-numericals. :)

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett Um, I could “help Twitter Nudes long” how, exactly? (Or, maybe don’t say exactly, but generally.)

via Twitter Web Client

@lyndons That MIGHT be a useful metric if my aim was “be most popular website visited by random Australians”, which it isn’t.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lyndons

@lyndons Exactly! “http://stilgherrian.com 44,688th out of 501,410 websites as visited by Australians” is an almost meaningless number. :)

via Twitter Web Client

@Warlach Your http://twitternudes.com project looks rather winful. I hope it kicks off!

via Twitter Web Client

@ireckon @cpanczak Well yes, important-sounding names for arbitrary numerical measures of… something. Not sure why I mentioned it now.

via Twitter Web Client

According to @Twitalyzer, another bullshit-ridden pseudo-numerical “analysis”, I’m #188 out of whoever they track. http://bit.ly/JQkyy Gosh.

via Twitter Web Client

@twoscomplement Ta, but as I say, @GreenJ decides whether my Crikey pieces are inside or outside the paywall. I am his bitch. No. Wait.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat Definitely Crikey/blog material out of today. More thoughtful background/context than “news”. Thought-shaping.

via Twitter Web Client

I’ve tweeted very little today, thanks to being at the Internet filtering forum all day. http://is.gd/jClh Normal service resumed tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client

Tubeworming my way home, electrically.

via Twitter Web Client

@dale_clapperton Mr Burmeister’s technique sounds like pure snake oil to sell to music industry types.

via Twitter Web Client

@TunaCrust Control-F5 and Command-FM has failed to turn off the “Text t Audio File” actions. Maybe it’s still reading something very big.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TunaCrust

Excellent, I managed to get “full of fail” into my response to Verity Pravda’s Crikey comments. http://is.gd/lGYr

via Twitter Web Client

@dananimal Command-F5 toggles VoiceOver, thanks, but waiting to see whether it sticks. Lots of browser windows open! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dananimal

@mpesce From 27 floors up at Circular Quay, I can confirm that it’s yellow outside. Sydney watersports have gone over the top, it seems.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

OK, so Firefox on OS X has decided to turn every page into a “text to audio file”. Red dot in menu bar. How do I turn it off?

via Twitter Web Client

@nicsuzor I think the “why” question needs to go to the organisers, not me. :) I could liveblog under the CH Rule but I’d rather take notes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nicsuzor

@nwjerseyliz I have dinner with @SnarkyPlatypus once twice a week, after gym.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Is it a coincidence that my 6666th tweet was about Toto and purging their fans? I think not.

via Twitter Web Client

FUCK OFF! CROCS ARE NOT, I REPEAT, NOT SHOES!

via Twitter Web Client

RT @mtats: Toto fans unite! There are dozens of us! DOZENS!

via Twitter Web Client

@paulwallbank [nods] ABC Local Radio has always been… variable. ;) Maybe that’s enough from me about the ABC today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

RT @ragnarok1971: Is it wise to go to the gym after being chiropractorised??? [Um, you’re asking about “me” and “wise”? Need I say more?]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @randomphrase: Heard on @702abcsydney news bulletin: NRL launched its 2009 season … (snip) … turning to sport now … [Silos, silos.]
