@bengrubb Oh, and how would you like to be offended tonight? Personally? Politically? Professionally? All three?

via TweetDeck in reply to bengrubb

@erikstripparo O hai! I have been bad, I haven’t replied to your email, but yes… Thursday evening seems possible. Await further data!

via TweetDeck in reply to erikstripparo

I just lost 15 minutes of my life looking for dried shrimp. That’s an attack on Fairfax.

via TweetDeck

Thanks @Sally_Jackson I was fairly sure from the context that @RealAndrewBolt wasn’t real, but it’s nice to have it confirmed.

via TweetDeck

RT @mrgrumpystephen: Sir, as a muppet, I am now offended. [Excellent. My work here is done.]

via TweetDeck

[laughs] Oh you are all such muppets!

via TweetDeck

Is there anyone I haven’t annoyed yet tonight?

via TweetDeck

I agree @jdub there oughta be a law against me.

via TweetDeck

Groggle caves in to Google, now named Drinkle. http://arseh.at/1nc Personal opinion: Google are bullies.

via TweetDeck

I must admit, I’m fascinated by the idea that I might not be thoroughly disgusted by something unless someone else was paying me money.

via TweetDeck

I can’t possibly reply to all these tweets. I’m glad you care, whether you agree with me or not. FFS, people, CARE about things!

via TweetDeck

@martinbarry One of my great pleasures was to interview Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. A long time ago, obviously. She was smart.

via TweetDeck in reply to martinbarry

RT @paris_david: Now that we’ve established your moral flexibility, can we haggle on the price? [The Greens can’t afford me.]

via TweetDeck

It’s also funny how people always name Crikey, when I file for several other outlets as well, plus my own website. Feeling threatened much?

via TweetDeck

Oh of course I have a price, @kdelarue, and so does everyone else. My website has my number, if anyone wants to make an offer.

via TweetDeck

Seriously, I’ll say it now. If you want to control what I say then you’d better add about six zeroes to $100 a story.

via TweetDeck

Pissing myself laughing at the idea of Crikey somehow controlling what I think and say.

via TweetDeck

You really are an arsehat, @ashermoses, if you think this is about “mainstream media” framing. It’s about honesty as a human.

via TweetDeck

Also, anyone who imagines that what I say online has anything to do with @crikey_news is just proving what a muppet they are.

via TweetDeck

I’m assuming @RealAndrewBolt is another mock account? Mr Bolt himself wouldn’t be so stupid as to misrepresent what I said.

via TweetDeck

RT @BernardKeane: It’s the word “ghoulish” that makes it, no? [Agreed. And it’s good that we’re told what to think.]

via TweetDeck

Actually @newswithnipples Copyright Act s42 exception for reporting news. Photo on Facebook = “artistic work”. http://arseh.at/1h0

via TweetDeck

Maybe it’s true. Maybe I don’t understand the ethics of being a journalist. I guess it’s different from the ethics of being a human being.

via TweetDeck

Oh noes! Cops + Facebook + regulators are doing nothing about it! What are YOU doing about it, @ashermoses? As a responsible citizen?

via TweetDeck

Give you a break @ashermoses? It’d take 15 mins to write a “how to protect your tribute page” paragraph. Where is it?

via TweetDeck

If calling out a media outlet’s cynical exploitation of other people’s misery is trolling, @ashermoses, then call me a troll any day.

via TweetDeck

Well @ashermoses if it’s that serious, why aren’t you giving people the information they need to defend themselves?

via TweetDeck

RT @ashermoses: I’m working on a follow-up for tmrw. Facebook hasn’t responded. This is a serious issue - troll us all you like.

via TweetDeck

Seriously @ashermoses a single par linking to Facebook’s article on how to avoid defacements would have shown that you give a shit about it.

via TweetDeck

The only “outcry” @ashermoses seems to be from near-tabloid media outlets stirring up TEH PHEAR instead of helping their readers. Lame.

via TweetDeck

So @ashermoses where in your PHEAR THE INTERNETZ story did you tell people how to moderate their Facebook tribute pages? http://arseh.at/1n3

via TweetDeck

Australian wine industry shock horror something something mumble. http://arseh.at/1n6

via TweetDeck

By the way, a “wage-salve” is not the same as a “wage-slave”. Need I draw a diagram?

via TweetDeck

@crazyjane13 Indeed, Oddly enough, that’s the entire point of my article. :) http://arseh.at/1kc

via TweetDeck in reply to crazyjane13

Turns out this journalist shield law, so far, only applies to wage-salves at media factories. http://arseh.at/1n5

via TweetDeck

@The_PioneerS Have you been doing things on the internet again? God WILL smite you, you know.

via TweetDeck in reply to tomjsenior

Actually @VS_ rather than fearing “Judge Judy”, I reckon ALL court proceedings should be streamed. http://arseh.at/16g

via TweetDeck

Vic Labor says they’d stream court proceedings. Why is this party political? Don’t fall for the ! http://arseh.at/1n2

via TweetDeck

Forget Justin Bieber. What proportion of Twitter’s infrastructure is allocated to @peterjblack having coffee?

via TweetDeck

RT @deptofinternets: Good grief. “Ever visited” [Exactly. It’s the mindless gushing of half-heard stats that shits me. Arsehats.]

via TweetDeck

Thank you @sylmobile! 75% of Australian online users have visited Facebook [with or without account] ever. http://arseh.at/1n1 [PDF]

via TweetDeck

Gawd, people truly want to Believe, don’t they!

via TweetDeck

Sorry what @NineSortJam? “The plural of anecdote is data” is a Wolfmother song?

via TweetDeck

@mel_is_hiding Are you saying you believe the “75% of Australians use Facebook” figure?

via TweetDeck in reply to MelAppleby

That plus counting anyone who’s ever created a Facebook account ever being counted, as opposed to “active” users (however defined).

via TweetDeck

My guess, @matt_levinson, is that it might be “N% of Australian internet users”, which is not “N% of Australians”.

via TweetDeck

The “households using internet” figure is an ABS regular, @ozmarshall http://arseh.at/1n0 Facebook stats? PR fluff, I assume.

via TweetDeck

RT @JohnBirmingham: Cant decide whether to kick on with my demons vs redencks novel, or do some exercise. [And whiskey…?]

via TweetDeck

RT @deptofinternets: I call bullshit on that 75% of Australians use Facebook stat. [Agreed. “Only” 78% of Oz households have internet.]

via TweetDeck

Ah yes! “Area Man Passionate Defender Of What He Imagines Constitution To Be” http://arseh.at/1my HT @mjec [Oldie but goodie.]

via TweetDeck

RT @oliyoung: Is he confusing “unconstitutional” for “I don’t agree”? [I suspect so. They’re so similar…]

via TweetDeck

“Data retention goes beyond ‘status quo’”, says @joshgnosis http://arseh.at/1mw

via TweetDeck

The man over there’s entire conversation consists of the responses “Too easy” and “Sweet as”.

via TweetDeck

Also @ssharwood your avatar is a bit wrong.

via TweetDeck

RT @ssharwood: Printer events are all the same. They’re always faster, greener, and sharper. Intel events are just the first two. [Correct.]

via TweetDeck

Apparently Australia’s richest man Mr Forrest has a different text for the Constitution than I do. http://arseh.at/1mv HT @jasonlangenauer

via TweetDeck

I can’t claim credit for anecdote/evidence, @andrewlitvak @naomieve. If you search you’ll find its history. Maybe “data” not “evidence”.

via TweetDeck

[A bit early, I’d have thought, but I have no control over these things.]

via TweetDeck

Agreed @anthonybaxter trawling Twitter should be automated and pushed way down into the CRM chain. Was the BBC yarn online?

via TweetDeck

Hah! I just got a phone call from another printer company’s PR firm, worried that I hadn’t been invited to next week’s event. See? Twitter!

via TweetDeck

Just what Lexmark needs, @Anthony_Caruana: Me with a 3-day growth, faded t-shirt and a cranky mood. Also, printers != excitement.

via TweetDeck

RT @Anthony_Caruana: Any other journos coming to the Lexmark event at Darling Harbour? [There’s a Lexmark event? Well there’s some fine PR.]

via TweetDeck

@DavidFeng Thank you. Nevertheless, I like the idea of tea-making being forbidden. Sort of like a grass mud kettle. Or something.

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidFeng

@barrysaunders I don’t think you’re taking the internet seriously. It is not a toy for your amusement!

via TweetDeck

@DavidFeng “No heated tea”? Damn! Language Log said it was “forbidden teapot”, or something. http://arseh.at/1j7

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidFeng

Hey wow you’ll never believe this, but someone was writing a news story and… and… THEY PUT A PUN IN THE HEADLINE! How original is that?

via TweetDeck

I know they’re watching me @Tuna, and they’re not the only ones. It’s kinda creepy. If they hired spunkier staff, though…

via TweetDeck

Exactly the same way I use TweetDeck, @VoxofTLS: spotting specific groups of people very quickly. A global radio scanner is a good analogy.

via TweetDeck

Elapsed time between me mentioning Telstra and a corporate relations response: 4 minutes. [smirks] Twitter is so cool!

via TweetDeck

O hai @VoxofTLS! That doesn’t take long, does it? ;)

via TweetDeck

True @damonism @Davidramli @mjec I’ve heard nothing but good re @Telstra’s work on Twitter. The plural of “anecdote” is not “evidence”.

via TweetDeck

Actually @leighsales I will say @Telstra has been fast responding to me too. But then I’m “know to Telstra”. Not a good test.

via TweetDeck

RT @leighsales: Can report that @Telstra responds swiftly & efficiently to tweets. I’m impressed. [Especially when you present national TV?]

via TweetDeck

My “Senate to re-open bloggers versus journalists” is now also at Crikey. http://arseh.at/1ms

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; lunch somewhere; remainder TBA because, as I said earlier, there is significant blurriness today.

via TweetDeck

RT @TheMeanSplendor: “So, Mark Arbib and Alan Jones go into a bar……” (it’s too unsettling to finish) [That tweet wins my award today.]

via TweetDeck

Dear Media, I do not want to think about “Mark Arbib” and “gay marriage” in the same story. Thank you for your cooperation.

via TweetDeck

“NBN delivers business case as Optus declares network anticompetitive” http://arseh.at/1mp

via TweetDeck

“How Much Bang Can Optical Fibre Cable Deliver?” in newmatilda.com http://arseh.at/1ml

via TweetDeck

Somewhere in this office is this month’s Amex merchant account statement. But where…?

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Actually, it is quite possible than an Earthquake might remove this blurriness. Or at least make it irrelevant.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Alas M Toulouse-Lautrec is not to blame. In fact, I have no proper explanation. This concerns me.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: Given my extreme blurriness today, a gentle plod-at-desk until lunchtime; remainder TBA. That’s not much of a plan, is it?

via TweetDeck

Now look @crikey_news my question wasn’t about whether you loved them… And I made no comment about the readers because they’re adorable.

via TweetDeck

Enjoying paying this month’s batch of bills in USD, what with the exchange rate and all…

via TweetDeck

Hey @crikey_news do you have a feel for what proportion of your contributors are actually, you know, mad? And staff?

via TweetDeck

“Oh”, I said. That’s meant to trigger a burst of energy and a urge of productivity that Senator Kim Carr would be proud of. Why isn’t it?
