@thelaughingsub I’m sure he doesn’t need any encouragement. Nevertheless, I want to see one onesie.

@GamerFems Sorry, I have no idea what tweeting that image to me is meant to mean. I don’t know what you want from me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GeekPopLife

@GamerFems No seriously, what’s going on here? Apart from telling me your point of view, what do want? I’m genuinely confused.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GeekPopLife

@GamerFems So what do you want to happen as a result of this conversation?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GeekPopLife

@GamerFems I will flag that what I feel is your self-righteous lecturing tone has made me disinclined to do so, however.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GeekPopLife

@GamerFems No, “this guy” is happy to discuss this publicly. But I suggest you find out a little more about me before a clichéd attack.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GeekPopLife

@GamerFems I’m simply saying that behaviour which he thinks is insightful is, to me, a sign that something is wrong.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GeekPopLife

@GamerFems I can see how you think I’m using mental illness as an insult, but I disagree that that’s what I was doing in that tweet.

Given that I’m perfectly happy to go on-record with every detail here, you’d have to ask why Microsoft can’t do the same.

My blog post about Microsoft’s ban links to my entire Twitter feed for last year’s event, and indeed the whole month. stilgherrian.com/media/microsof…

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder when someone, anyone, at Microsoft will have the integrity and spine to actually contact me about their gripe.

via Janetter for Mac

@joshgnosis Oh yes. It’s clear their problem is with ME, but they’re not communicating with me nor willing to state specific reasons.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

I still expect Microsoft to either put the allegations they made to my commissioning editor in writing, or withdraw them and apologise.

Here’s a @mumbrella story on my banning by Microsoft, with their response. mumbrella.com.au/tech-journalis…

OH: “Molly has a really big problem, like, she wants attention. She goes off crying all the time and then looks to see who noticed.”

OH: “You have a big nose, same as my dad. There’s nothing wrong with it, but I have a little nose and that’s better.”

The usage of “pivot” in current corporate-speak bewilders me. It’s used like a new toy to mean almost anything.

via Janetter for Mac

@kim_weatherall Indeed, so it’s interesting to watch the language Twitter’s executives use when they talk about how their service is used.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kim_weatherall

Exactly that, @kim_weatherall, I’d file it under “parody”, and in other context that’s protected usage. But we live in interesting times.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @kim_weatherall: Surely using hashtags contrary to promo interests is ‘ordinary’, ‘desirable’, ‘democratic’ behaviour… & free speech?

via Janetter for Mac

Twitter chose the “media company” path over “comms platform” ages ago, @GordyPls, and now must justify its $8 billion valuation. Good luck.

via Janetter for Mac

I see Twitter characterises using a hashtag like contrary to promo interest as “bad behaviour”. Will hashtags become “owned”?

Here’s @Sally_Jackson’s piece on the new MD for Twitter Australia and their plans. theaustralian.com.au/media/marketin…

via Janetter for Mac

@michaeljashford Plus the name-calling of “haters” is usually an attempt to distract an argument into claiming it’s some person issue. Bah!

via Janetter for Mac

@michaeljashford Oh. “Haters” bullshit. Sigh. Calming thinking the MD of a comms company should be experienced in the medium is hardly hate.

@crowjelly @Globalgallop Bullshit, disingenuous analogy, conflating use, familiarity, heavy use and addiction. You have an interest in this?

So Twitter has an Australian MD with 26 tweets and 160 followers. I’m glad they’ve chosen someone with a rich experience of the medium.

@expectproblems Thanks, I’ll have to check it out. I loved the genuine comments from McRaney’s wife too. Great storytelling.

Excellent. There’s a new “You Are Not So Smart” podcast, and it relates to video games. Smart people will listen. youarenotsosmart.com/podcast/

Mon plan, draft: Spring-clean various projects, including corruptednerds.com and my other little business; washing; dinner elsewhere.
