@firstdogonmoon Do you have the internet where you are? It’s very handy for FUCKING WELL LOOKING UP ALL THE THINGS and stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to firstdogonmoon

A media professional’s tweet fails, grammatically, in subject-object number agreement. Even if it’s Saturday night do I still call them out?

via TweetDeck

@domknight Sorry, I was at Sexpo yesterday. “Callback gag” triggered images of something rather different.

via TweetDeck in reply to domknight

Operation Restore Sanity, Part 1. youtu.be/Szavq0lrFtg

via TweetDeck

You should know by now, @BernardKeane, you’re only allowed to RT things that people already agree with.

via TweetDeck

@hortovanyi Oh no, it’s not my photo. It’s from some generic demotivational poster and uncredited.

via TweetDeck in reply to hortovanyi

@hortovanyi I’m not sure I understand the question.

via TweetDeck in reply to hortovanyi

Truly, @TurnbullMalcolm’s tribute to Margaret Whitlam is everything @TonyAbbottMHR’s isn’t. Thank you, Sir. arseh.at/t90

peterjblack haha this isn’t that surprising really: “We Gave People an iPad 2, Told Them It Was the New iPad, and They Loved It” pjblack.me/yB9kNT

@TeamOyeniyi That sounded a tad dismissive, but the tweet was more a note for later than about wanting to have that conversation now.

via TweetDeck in reply to TeamOyeniyi

@TeamOyeniyi Ah well, sorry, story development a work thing for me, and I usually don’t do it in pieces via Twitter on a Saturday night.

via TweetDeck in reply to TeamOyeniyi

@peterjblack I find it curious that webstartupland continually uses “addictive” as a positive word. Quite curious.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

@max_au @bigjsl This is my point. Might as well sit, relax, wait for the rush to end, then stroll comfortably to collect luggage.

via TweetDeck in reply to max_au

@TeamOyeniyi That won’t fit in a tweet, but if you’re a sociologist or psychologist, do please email me and I’ll explain further.

via TweetDeck

@bigjsl But, if you wait 10 mins, the plane empties, and then it’s easy. Besides, you’re a big bloke and can thump people.

via TweetDeck in reply to bigjsl

@domknight Thanks. I may therefore continue to tweet stuff days late for the extra laughs. /cc @chrismayer

via TweetDeck

@bigjsl So, the nature of your gripe is that should you have forgotten to get something from your bag before takeoff you’ll have to walk 3m?

via TweetDeck in reply to bigjsl

RT @benpobjie: @BernardKeane let’s be honest: are there any men in real life who don’t turn out to be gay?

via TweetDeck

@domknight Is that the “comedy = tragedy + time” equation?

via TweetDeck in reply to domknight

@domknight Hey thanks but I’m only, what, two days late to the party? It was just a pathetic plea for attention.

via TweetDeck in reply to domknight

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Please do not believe any reports you read about me in the media. An accurate statement will be issued very shortly.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems The urban myth is that dogs won’t poo on lawn with bottles of water on them.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@staticsan Yes, but for a media conversation about the topic I’d prefer science and analysis to random anecdotes and speculation.

via TweetDeck in reply to staticsan

@trevoryoung That site you linked to generates a security warning from Twitter.

via TweetDeck in reply to trevoryoung

That train of thought was triggered by this story. arseh.at/t8z

via TweetDeck

@feed_the_chooks Oh dear. I shall contact you in due course. Which may be sooner than you had hoped.

via TweetDeck in reply to feed_the_chooks

RT @CbnGal: You need a psychologist for that? Self evident isn’t it. [Yes, using the right terminology would be edumacational.]

via TweetDeck

I would seriously like to find a sociologist or psychologist to interview who can talk about why Canberra is the epicentre of unusual sex.

via TweetDeck

ourmancanberra In Canberra, nothing says SES band 2 on the tear like a drunk male Mercedes driver in a wig, S&M clothing & kinky boots bit.ly/FOqZpy

QUICKLY! EVERYTHING IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE MUST BE VIEWED THROUGH THE LENS OF 1970S UNIVERSITY FEMINISM!

via TweetDeck

@jg_rat Oh it all comes back to The Deification of Gough. Sigh. /cc @kcarruthers @CbnGal

via TweetDeck in reply to jg_rat

@CbnGal I mean, partner or spouse of the leader is precisely the fact, and the word derives from “sharer”. /cc @kcarruthers

via TweetDeck in reply to CbnGal

“Consort” is sexist, @CbnGal? It’s probably the most non-sexist power-related term there is! /cc @kcarruthers

via TweetDeck

It’s a shame that no-one involved in shooting the PM’s tribute thought to tell her the wind uplift in her hair made her look stupid.

via TweetDeck

@CollinVanUden @benmoretti @CameronWatt @purserj See immediately preceding tweet.

via TweetDeck

Here’s @JuliaGillard and @TonyAbbottMHR’s statements on Margaret Whitlam. arseh.at/t8w HT @Snowy2307

via TweetDeck

Why are they leaving fish lying around a racing track?

via TweetDeck

@belungerer You’re being too literal, I think. See Macquarie Dictionary entry, item 2. arseh.at/t8u

via TweetDeck in reply to belungerer

Rinsing wine glass. Opening fresh bottle (stolen). Taking microphone out of case. Stringing cables.

via TweetDeck

Hey News Junkies, has anyone seen the full audio/video of @TonyAbbottMHR’s comments on Margaret Whitlam online? Would like full context.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Oh, @TonyAbbottMHR couldn’t resist adding a poke during his “tribute”. arseh.at/t8t Looking for full audio now.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin It’s just Tea Tree Cottage with punters tonight, right? So 49.2V should be fine.

via TweetDeck

@stufromoz You’re suggesting we top the party goat? That’s your preference, is it? /cc @en_gy @stilgherrian @AshleySaturday

via TweetDeck in reply to stufromoz

@belungerer Also, you’re jumbling literal and metaphorical uses of the word there. Naughty naughty.

via TweetDeck in reply to belungerer

@belungerer Neither gratuitous nor inappropriate. The strongest word available reflects my contempt. Also arseh.at/t8a

via TweetDeck

There are whole days when @bernieb needs to be kept well away from the internet. This is one of them.

via TweetDeck

RT @purserj: Miss 8 just said “Isn’t Tony Abbott’s wife Beyonce?” [No, I think that’s someone who works in his office.]

via TweetDeck

@en_gy AshleySaturday I can’t help it if you don’t know how to properly select a party goat.

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @franksting. Most news is written in declarative sentences. Statements of fact. arseh.at/t8s

via TweetDeck

@en_gy @AshleySaturday Everyone wearing just gloves and cotton socks? So you were at that party too?

via TweetDeck

@franksting Sorry, I haven’t seen “the media” today. What are you referring to?

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

RT @joshgnosis: I hope Jason Russell doesn’t make a video explaining today’s incident to his small child.

via TweetDeck

FFS, @TonyAbbottMHR, have you heard the phrase “a time and a place”? Scroll back, think about what you just did, and APOLOGISE.

via TweetDeck

To make it 100% clear, my gripe has nothing to do with ideology or policy. It’s about Abbott’s fitness as a member of a human society.

via TweetDeck

Then consider the sort of human being who knows all this about Tony Abbott but continues to acknowledge him as their leader.

via TweetDeck

Pondering Tony Abbott continuing at the seminary. What sort of priest would he have made? Offering what sort of pastoral care?

via TweetDeck

Politics aside, what sort of lowlife cunt has a go at a man and his work the day after his wife dies? Tony Abbott, apparently.

via TweetDeck

I am ignoring your conversation about Twitter date rape, @juhasaarinen @NewtonMark because there’s already enough wrong in my life.

via TweetDeck

I wonder about people calling things “inspiring”. What, exactly, did it inspire you to do? And how’s that going?

via TweetDeck

@ozdj That doesn’t say anti-virus. “Online threats” could be worms? “Inappropriate content” parental control? Don’t these things do email?

via TweetDeck in reply to ozdj

RT @NewtonMark: FWIW, I view twitter like a pub: One has semi-private conversations with friends, but strangers listen in. [Ditto.]

via TweetDeck

Hi, @IdentityWoman. Yes, very much looking forward to meeting you. Next week’s forum on identity arseh.at/t7f should be fascinating.

via TweetDeck

@benmoretti I think @NewtonMark got it right before. I think the boundaries are public vs private, static vs flowing.

via TweetDeck in reply to morebento

@piawaugh For me, the very title “Twittamentary” was warning. The “Tw-” prefix is a clear sociolinguistic marker for SMEGs.

via TweetDeck

@trishola1 Or, to be honest, if I haven’t solved that “problem” in 15 seconds I give up and move on. It’s not a royal proclamation.

via TweetDeck in reply to trisholaviolet

@trishola1 You can do it in a whole new tweet before or after the RT. Or, rather than a RT, do your tweet linking to the other tweet.

via TweetDeck in reply to trisholaviolet

@piawaugh No, I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m on the same program with it at DigitalMe in Perth 27 April. arseh.at/t8r

via TweetDeck in reply to piawaugh

@mpesce Sorry, is the business class lounge littered with broken glass and discarded sharps? No? THEN WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU NEED SHOES FOR?

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@piawaugh Is the movie you’re watching Siok Siok Tan’s “Twittamentary”?

via TweetDeck in reply to piawaugh

@trishola1 Answered that before. Preface it with your opinion and other context, adding value. No dilemma. Make the effort to explain.

via TweetDeck in reply to trisholaviolet

MT @KarlskiB: @stilgherrian I was told … all “greenies” hate mankind and want to commit indiscriminate genocide. [Well obviously, yes.]

via TweetDeck

The world, therefore, consists solely of two easily-identifiable groups. Clear-headed logical Left, and selfish, nasty Right. QED.

via TweetDeck

Conclusion? The Left can support their view with logic and reason. The Right, an inherently selfish worldview, must resort to lame insults.

via TweetDeck

The Right uses many name-calling insults: lefties, greenies, pinkos, latte-sippers, commies etc. The Left seems to have and use so few back.

via TweetDeck

My next few tweets will commit what I think to be the complete arsehattery of reducing all politics to “the left” versus “the right”.

via TweetDeck

@benmoretti Are you asking for my opinion or the current law, a quick yes/no or some depth?

via TweetDeck in reply to morebento

Whenever I see someone use the term “lefties” in political discourse I think “pathetically ill-informed patronising name-calling cunt”.

via TweetDeck

@JenRedding64 Sorry, sounded accusatory. Wasn’t meant to be. But in your Twitterstream someone else’s tweet isn’t the excuse for a fail.

via TweetDeck in reply to JustJen64

@JenRedding64 This is precisely my point about treating the tweet as a whole media object. And taking responsibility for your own writing.

via TweetDeck in reply to JustJen64

@JenRedding64 Well, if there’s NO ROOM SOMETIMES preface the RT with your introduction. Or link to it. /cc @BernardKeane @beneltham

via TweetDeck in reply to JustJen64

@NewtonMark @BernardKeane Twitter is indeed conversation not publishing. But publishers want to call it publishing so they can hit it.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @BernardKeane So, why do (some) people default to RTs ARE endorsements? “The PM said today…” isn’t seen as endorsement.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@BernardKeane @beneltham Mind you, the other problem is lazy fucktards RTing things without adding their own context. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane @beneltham The problem is seeing the tweet as the media object, rather than the Twitterstream. Think radio, not headline.

via TweetDeck

@_LeonieGSmith Yes, the RDP hole is fixed in the latest Windows update, but so many server do not auto-update so this gets scary.

via TweetDeck in reply to LeonieGSmith

The pre-upfuckage version of TweetDeck, @Noodlez? Here you go. arseh.at/qb5

via TweetDeck

Sat plan, unordered: Blog posts x 2; email backlog clearing; potentially, some shovel work with @R_Chirgwin; future story planning.

via TweetDeck

And to complete the replugs, this nasty Windows RDP security hole arseh.at/t7z can now be exploited, so do fix it, folks.

via TweetDeck

Also, me at @CSO_Australia on the launch of the Cyber Defence University Challenge. arseh.at/t87 Jeff from Alice Springs is unhappy.

via TweetDeck

RT: Me at @CSO_Australia: “Auraya’s ArmorVox delivers voice authentication from the cloud”, with neat technology. arseh.at/t7y

via TweetDeck

RT: Me at @crikey_news: “.xxx domain is here to stay, but Conroy could still block it”. With disturbing Sexpo imagery. arseh.at/t7w

via TweetDeck

RT: New blog post: “Twitter Discourse 1: Fuck off, swearing is my birthright” arseh.at/t8a

via TweetDeck

So this is Saturday, apparently. And it rains. Let me now point you to some things that appeared yesterday.
