    goodness, you may as well start a twitter directory at tumblr or a new twitter account. :lol: i like the one where ‘god’ twitters, which i found through raincoaster’s twit, naturally.

    Hehe, I do mention Twitter a bit too much. I think five people only signed up so I’d shut up about it!

    And yeah, I followed those a while, but now that I follow over 300 people I’ve moved to more real people instead. :)

    Not to say God isn’t real, this isn’t meant to spark a religious debate!

    regardless of the concept of god’s existence, i think it’s very highly unlikely he’d be twittering. ;)

    Who knows of the ways God works.. ;)

    Great post Cat! (and thank you for mentioning me ;)

    Not sure if you know about Shekhar Kapoor (director of the movie Elizabeth)- he’s on Twitter too. And of course, we have @fakejohnmccain and @fakesarahpalin who provided excellent comic relief during US Presidential elections ;)

    I’m growing fond of Twitter day by day. In fact, I keep reading Tweets using Twitterfox at work. Your tweets keep me highly entertained. And yeah, that’s a compliment.

  6. Posted December 15, 2008 at 4:12 am | Permalink

    You’re very welcome. :)

    Nope, I didn’t know he was, but then again I didn’t know who he was either even though Elisabeth counts as one of my favourite films!

    I’m glad you like Twitter, it makes me feel better for constantly badgering you and others, like @sparc.

    As for my tweets being entertaining, well, let’s just leave it at that! Haha!

    Wow, you’ve posted a lot about Twitter! I should probably give it a try.

    Happy New Year!!

    oh, do, bobby. twitter is growing on me. :)

  10. Posted January 2, 2009 at 11:59 am | Permalink

    You’ve joined Twitter! Awesome! :D

    I do recommend downloading the Spaz application I linked to as it’s much better than the web interface. :)

    Cosmic!!! Thanks :)

    Great to see you’re on Twitter! :)

    Hi Cat,

    You never cease to amaze me with these awesome and in depth posts of yours and I’m sure to make use of this one for sure. I’m socialaphobic you know so I joined Twitter and resuscitated my old Facebook in an effort to further myself blah, blah, blah, blah….

    Either way, I still can’t make heads or tails as to how either one works, especially Twitter, so I’ve set myself out to learn even if it fills my life with misery and woe. Thanks to you, the learning process will be that much easier.

    Did you take a look at my beginner’s guide?

    Or Twitter itself:

    And what’s your Twitter account name? :)

  15. Posted January 4, 2009 at 10:15 pm | Permalink

    I haven’t had the chance to look at anything yet since my wife and I spent the day taking pictures of her latest quilts (need to get them online) but I definitely intend to.

    And my Twitter moniker is kmb42vt. Can’t say that I’ve been updating much but I’ll try and do better…I promise…okay…I don’t promise but I’ll try anyway. :D

    You’ve had a Twitter account since beginning of December and never told me?! I’m disappointed! If you have any Twitter questions, feel free to ask!

    And sounds like you had a busy day!

    Twitter does seem to be getting a lot more popular these days. I don’t really see the point of it myself. It is interesting to see how you are using though.

  18. Posted February 16, 2009 at 10:24 pm | Permalink

    Well, you know, there’s something in it for everyone. Just give it a try. :)
