@mpesce I thought so. So I didn’t use it. I also see you’ve effing gazumped my “The Business” spot by going on The Drum. Pig. :P

@trib But hey, starting off that troll would be… well, some might say it’d be fun, but I couldn’t possibly comment.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to trib

@trib Someone, or somemany, is already trying to relate whatever random chaff fills their head to the story, and will comment so. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to trib

@trib @zdnetaustralia You’d look a bit silly, since the article says that’s “natural language processing” in this business.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh fuck. @ColvinsKidney has gone sentient. This won’t end well.

via Janetter for Mac

Wasn’t that one of the ways Jesus suffered on the Cross? Roman magistrate’s clerk typing up his sentence too loudly?

via Janetter for Mac

People like that shit me. The carriage is nearly empty. I (or he, for that matter) could’ve moved. But he waited for an hour.

via Janetter for Mac

@Nightwyrm No, he just wanted to exert his superiority (“I don’t type that loudly”) before alighting. It was about power, not his comfort.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Nightwyrm

See, @marshontap shows everyone how PR should be done for busy journalists.

via Janetter for Mac

A man just complained that I was typing too loudly in the quiet carriage. Had he mentioned it earlier, I’d have changed seats. Arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you to the person who just included their client’s entire media mailing list in the CC field. Appreciated. ;)

via Janetter for Mac

Yay. @CSO_Australia deadline extended! [Closes text file.]

via Janetter for Mac

Near Glenfield the valley is entirely full of smoke from @NSWRFS burn-offs. Can’t see the other side. The train now smells like a fireplace.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce So you’re telling @theprojecttv they’re “sloppy seconds” compared with @ABCNews24? I’m afraid I can’t support that view.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

Story filed for @zdnetaustralia. It does not contain the phrase “bedroom boy”.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce Nah, I was on @theprojecttv recently, and will be on @ABCNews24 tonight.

RT @NewtonMark: Unfair comparison. Motoring journalists generally know how to drive. [Sorry, you’re quite right.]

via Janetter for Mac

Half of what they write is the equivalent of a motoring journalists going on about phlogiston and problems caused by pixie dust friction.

via Janetter for Mac

I sometimes wonder if anyone writing in the so-called “mainstream news” actually knows how the internet even works.

via Janetter for Mac

You should know by now, @NewtonMark, that journalists can’t divide by 2 billion very well.

via Janetter for Mac

NewtonMark I’m also finding it hilarious that media outlets think 300 Gbps is a big number. Scale is important, folks.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jonoabroad: They are analysts not historians. [Sorry, yes, my mistake.]

via Janetter for Mac

That is to say, does anyone ever add any Science to make this entire process any more accurate than horse racing tips from a random drunk?

via Janetter for Mac

Does @Forbes or eMarketer or anyone ever go back, once real numbers are in, and see whether any of these estimates are ever right?

via Janetter for Mac

In @Forbes’ defence, it says the Twitter revenue estimates are by eMarketer, and presumably they’re based on many Important Feelings.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: But the nice thing is @Forbes now can plan another article soon “Twitter fails to meet revenue expectations”. Why analyse?

via Janetter for Mac

So really, all @Forbes is doing is a bit of he-said she-said journalism, but ascribing it to the movements of Mr Forecast and his 4 Fingers.

via Janetter for Mac

A forecast can’t jump. A forecast has no agency. What’s happened? Twitter’s managers now claim they’ll grow faster than previous claims.

via Janetter for Mac

A conceptual problem with @Forbes’ headline “Twitter’s Revenue Forecast Jumps Again, This Time to Almost $1 Billion”? forbes.com/sites/jeffberc…

via Janetter for Mac

@abcmarkscott @Colvinius Note, though, Twitter’s revenue is only “forecast” to grow that way, still nowhere near justifying $8.4B valuation.
