@mumbrella Ta for the suitably link-baitey quote in your re-post of my thing, Sir! :)

RT @mumbrella RT @BigHarto: Want 100,000 followers in three days? Then purchase and operate a newspaper you parasites.

@Kimota Nice addition to my blog post, Sir! http://tr.im/u2YJ Well done for reading the whole damn tl;dr thing. ;)

@thewetmale But yes, Twitter is a very jump-in medium. Hmmm… you’re triggering further thoughts here!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thewetmale

@thewetmale Facebook is so many, many things though. For every “Facebook is…” there’s a “Facebook is also…”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thewetmale

@thewetmale I think some of the thrust of my piece is that (some) marketers forget to be polite, to understand the venue before diving in.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thewetmale

@thewetmale You’re right. In Facebook, you can carve off a conversation into an “event” or a “group” and add lots of signs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thewetmale

Typical. Three responses to stupid comment about a penis quiz. No response to a thoughtful essay. The world’s going to hell in a handbasket.

via Twitter Web Client

Why would anyone take Facebook’s “How big is your penis?” quiz TWICE?

New blog post (long): “Conversations are not markets, people!” http://tr.im/u2EG Hat-tips: @kcarruthers @trib @Kimota @cluetrain @mzkagan.

@thetowncrier A green-tinged lesbian? I’m sorry to say, the word “fungus” just came to mind. I suspect that’s wildly inappropriate.

@SnarkyPlatypus Vin rouge, cependant, de nombreux autres avantages. Je crois que vous êtes au courant de ces éléments.

@TunaCrust Alas the Triple J RSS feeds only include the last 10 episodes, not back to April. But @MarkNewton for the URL for me, ta!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TunaCrust

@NewtonMark Oh excellent, thank you Mark! http://bit.ly/QePJ9 I didn’t relaise the programs were still online, just not linked in!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

Mon plan: A day of writing at my desk, largely, because there’s a lot to write.

via Twitter Web Client

Bother. I didn’t keep the MP3 of Triple J’s “Hack” from 7 April when Senator Conroy and I were on it. I don’t suppose anyone kept it…?

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis tout à fait disposé à faire tout ce qui est dans le mode de Anna Bligh. Tout.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Queensland est prêt à toutes les possibilités. La question de savoir si nous sommes prêts, c’est une autre question.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. C’est une journée remplie de signes, de prodiges et de signifiants. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@WoollyMittens Also, @ApostrophePong just commented that Thailnd’s ASTV hasn’t changed style in 8 years.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WoollyMittens

@kcarruthers I have provided helpful commentary about your question re Roy the Dog. http://bit.ly/4qutY

via Twitter Web Client

Watching ASTV News1 Thailand, where the station has its own brand of rice to order from their call centre.

@seancarmody I thought you might like that arms trade database. :)

RT @mumbrella: News Digital Media boss: We won’t take online ads that unexpectedly blast our users with sound http://bit.ly/3h2kAm [Yes!]

via Twitter Web Client

Goodness! A searchable register of the international arms trade, 1950 to 2008. http://tr.im/u4wd

I’m pleased to see good discussion triggered by this morning’s rant, “Conversations are not markets, people!” http://tr.im/u4pJ

“The Onion” sold! Now a subsidiary of Yu Wan Mei Amalgamated Salvage Fisheries and Polymer Injection Corp. http://tr.im/u4iG

@SnarkyPlatypus If a Burtroll is inappropriate, then come up with something better!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

“8 Things ‘The Lost Boys’ Could Teach ‘Twilight’ Vampires http://tr.im/u4c5 Is this amusing or just wrong? Also, Rob Lowe WTF?

via Twitter Web Client

@R_Chirgwin That was not the first Burtroll. Nor is it likely to be the last. We are legion. http://tr.im/u49O

via Twitter Web Client in reply to R_Chirgwin

@kcarruthers @rbuerckner Actually, I do use different images each time, so people don’t recognise the URL.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers Oh, new Twitter-like applications? How about http://tr.im/u43P …? It’s SO going to be the winner.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

I see Facebook has been fart-arseing around with privacy controls again. How about a simple “fuck off the lot of you” button?

via Twitter Web Client

Catching up, discovered this from @jeffjarvis about a metadata standard for news: http://tr.im/u42a Nice threads to follow.

Dear Realurl.org, I’m marking your Pingbacks to my website as spam. If I WANTED a dozen content-free comments, I’d have asked.

I think I shall blame @firstdogonmoon for the fact that I’m currently listening to http://tr.im/u3e2

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge @andrewbarnett @sylmobile Thanks to you / others for compliments. “Thoughtful” takes a week of thinking then half a day writing.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers Sorry if I cause you to think. I know it’s a terrible burden.
