I think I’ve finally gotten the right hashtags into that last tweet, which some of you may have seen 724 times sorry. I am an arsehat.

via TweetDeck

I’ve just seen the rough cut by @ApostrophePong of @hollingsworth’s video of for tomorrow. It’s good. Of course.

via TweetDeck

@mrbenjaminlaw @bgosford I suspect that the story will cross over into some other media outlets tomorrow. I’ll probably blog it too.

via TweetDeck in reply to mrbenjaminlaw

@bgosford I agree. And I have already complimented @mrbenjaminlaw on his fine work today.

You know, @BernardKeane, I should resurrect my “Stilgherrian Live” program just so I can proclaim her “Cnut of the Week”.

via TweetDeck

@BernardKeane Well exactly. Public rant, then claims it was private. Publicly calls someone disgusting, then claims it was civil. Arsehat.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane Surely Mrs Andrews isn’t so daft she imagined her reply addressed any of the issues? Especially given there were witnesses.

RT @Colgo: Can anyone give an update on the cricket? [Yes. Cricket continues to be a tedious sport.]

@smperris I’ll give you the favouriting stats in the morning. It could all be too revealing just now.

@skwashd Reuters wasn’t the only mainstreamer to report a Qantas crash, but yes rather crap.

@jdub @sophblack I can’t reproduce that error but @frogworth can. Deleting cookies does not help.

For those of you watching Lateline the CRI, or Cananne Rootability Index, is not quite the same as the Canine Rootability Index.

via TweetDeck

Oh hang on. They’ll see that, won’t they?

via TweetDeck

The new TweetDeck says who’s favouriting your tweets. I’m not so narcissistic, but more-than-adequate RI is emerging. I’ll leave it on.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus So which is worse? People turning to Lateline for their… arousal? Or the dog thing?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@sophblack You know, all this re-pimping of our stories on a Friday night is both undignified and a sign that we do not have proper lives.

via TweetDeck in reply to sophblack

@firstdogonmoon Things could still go very wrong. You might accidentally have sex with a dog. It’s been known to happen.

via TweetDeck in reply to firstdogonmoon

In Twitter’s “Users you may be interested in” section there needs to be a “You’ve got to be fucking well joking” button.

via TweetDeck

@frogworth Alas I have no special access to Crikey’s website. I am merely a contributor and email in my stories. Can’t help you further. :(

via TweetDeck in reply to frogworth

I was also in Crikey with “Timeline of misinformation: Twitter’s plane crash down to human error”, not paywalled. http://arseh.at/1ik

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark I’ve been told that Reuters have taken the story offline. But I quoted it in the comments at http://arseh.at/1in

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@frogworth I’m reading it all happily, yes, but then that means nothing. Maybe blow away the cookie and try again?

via TweetDeck in reply to frogworth

And if you read @mrbenjaminlaw’s article earlier, well, Mrs Andrews’ [IMHO hilarious] reply has been added. http://arseh.at/1j6

via TweetDeck

Never tried Crikey? @mrbenjaminlaw’s run-in with Margaret Andrews, wife of Kevin, is worth registering for. http://arseh.at/1j6

@deejackson @SnarkyPlatypus And no, no mojitos here either. But I am quietly helping reduce Australia’s wine glut. Glut is such a good word.

via TweetDeck

@deejackson @SnarkyPlatypus Something like Australian band Decoder Ring would fit the description. http://arseh.at/1j3

via TweetDeck

@deejackson @SnarkyPlatypus What a good name for a band! Three Mojito Minimum. Ambient electronica, I’m imagine.

@SnarkyPlatypus I do like Symphony of the Obvious. I shall make a note of that for when I return to doing my own podcasts.

This is a very silly design for a boat, and Eris would be amused. http://arseh.at/1j0

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Indeed, that article was TEH OBVIOUZ, but it was widely mentioned by the smegiverse.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@NewtonMark You’re right. We should instead rely upon the dependable news wires. Ahem. http://arseh.at/1iy

And no, I shall not have eel for lunch. Something someone said has put me right off that idea.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Pho Sure for, erm, pho; shopping on Enmore Rd; back home again, because I’ll have a quiet night.

via TweetDeck

RT @NewtonMark: I have no idea, but while googling for it I found “The eel caused rectal bleeding.” http://arseh.at/1is [Erm, thank you?]

via TweetDeck

Obsessive fans of @firstdogonmoon will know this means I’m only now getting around to reading most of yesterday’s Crikey, let alone today’s.

via TweetDeck

Thanks to @firstdogonmoon I am now troubled by the question of whether eels do or do not have a prostate gland.

via TweetDeck

I suppose I should probably have lunch at some point soon.

via TweetDeck

@thewinchesterau Ta. It’ll be interesting to see whether the Wikipedia article on http://arseh.at/1ip survives the call for deletion.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Too many checklists. [Perhaps make a list of the checklists, and check them off as you complete them?]

Thanks @darrenpauli my line about Twitter being the medium for “meth-fuelled Chinese whispers” seems to have tickled some fancies.

via TweetDeck

@smperris Crikey’s website has curated links to other sites, occasional extra stories, the blogs http://arseh.at/1f5, comments and the shop.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

Update to my Crikey story: @chris_bloke can lay all the blame at Reuters’ feet for telling him the Qantas plane crashed. http://arseh.at/1in

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark I must admit, 4000 feet sounded low for 20+ km out from Changi. But I am not a flyer so, I just worked in aviation once.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@chris_bloke I had imagined you dot-connected. “There is a crash” + “Qantas confirms plane in incident”. But it’s ALL Reuters’ fault. Ta.

via TweetDeck in reply to chris_bloke

@chris_bloke Thanks for that Reuters link, I wasn’t able to find it in this morning’s rush. I’ll add it to the website shortly.

via TweetDeck in reply to chris_bloke

@NewtonMark Yes, SMH is reporting the exploding engine happened at 4000 feet in their home page leader. http://arseh.at/1im

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@franksting Depends where you look. Crikey’s daily email has a rather different readership demographic from the website.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting You won’t get Hipsters following you from @crikey_news, more like retired public servants, bank managers and teachers.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Thank you, @franksting: “@google realtime search [makes] Twitter Search look like being fellated by a dog.”

via TweetDeck

@franksting I suspect owe you a couple of whiskeys for lifting all your work from yesterday. I did credit you though.

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh hello. Hey, I’ve got this plan you might be interested in…

Lovely. I shall be interviewing the new Information Commissioner Prof John McMillan for the next “Patch Monday” podcast.

Oh dear. The Crikey story I just filed, on an extended deadline, has got a whole bunch of typos. I wonder how many will be missed.

via TweetDeck

I am not the only one at Crikey with a pubic problem, @NineSortJam. There has been “vigorous pubic debate”! http://arseh.at/1ig

via TweetDeck

@NineSortJam It’s certainly someone else’s job, yes. Never trust a writer to type properly.

via TweetDeck in reply to m_jns

Crikey story filed! Whew!

Writing. And researching. And writing.

So, today my work involves searching the internet for dog sex. My life is complete.

@kofeyh Where is the kayak? Your instructions are meaningless unless there is a kayak! Or one of those paddle boats that looks like a swan.

@katydaniells I think at my usual rates we can afford to throw in toast for free. Your choice of bread, fresh from the baker.

@katydaniells Um, “fetching coffee” is on my rate card. That’d be general consulting, then. I’ll pop you my hourly rates for that.
