    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.

  2. Cat says:

    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!

  3. sulz says:

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

  4. Cat says:

    Who knows of the ways God works.. ;)

  5. Ruhi says:

    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. Cat says:

    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!

  7. B0bbyG says:

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

    Happy New Year!!

  8. sulz says:

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

  9. Cat says:

    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. :)

  10. K8 says:

    John Cleese and a Hadron Collider

    Cosmic!!! Thanks :)

    *wanders off to investigate Spaz*

  11. Cat says:

    Great to see you’re on Twitter! :)

  12. Kirk M says:

    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.

  13. Cat says:

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

    Or Twitter itself:

    And what’s your Twitter account name? :)

  14. Kirk M says:

    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

  15. Cat says:

    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!

  16. 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.

  17. Cat says:

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