@AEConstant Personally I treat Twitter as a live medium. I don’t scroll back after a gap / overnight. Only respond to right now. YMMV. (2/2)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AEConstant

@AEConstant Gotcha. I don’t know that any consensus exists yet. Maybe it’s more about pointfulness than social acceptability. (1/2)

Said column, @dobes, would explore the idea that “enterprise grade software” is now a synonym for “useless piece of shit”.

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering whether @dobes will let me write a column with the headline “Today we are all Portugal Dishwasher”.

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, @GoToMeeting, “Portugal Dishwasher” works too. So I’ve decided to go with that. Because it’s a valid first and last name.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh it’s OK, @GoToMeeting, apparently “Stilgherrian .” works. Because as well all know, “.” is a “valid last name”

via Janetter for Mac

No, @GoToMeeting, it’s your culturally ignorant software that’s invalid, not my name. Fools. pic.twitter.com/W0JLm4titt

FFS, people, just stream video on YouTube or Livestream or something, and stick a hashtag on Twitter. Save us from this webinar wankery.
