What's the deal with the HMV thing?


Somebody from the head office got into the company's feed and are now tweeting about how sixty staff members are now facing the chop.

Hmvtweets has been dead since HMV went down. Today tweets started - live tweeting from mass-firing in HR, marketing director (not fired) wandering around trying to work out how to shut down twitter.

the last ones before someone got access and started deleting them. At which point Twitter seems to have fallen over!

Are these kinds of errors common with Twitter?

Whenever I refresh it alternates between an Over Capacity message or a Technical Error message.

Clearly Twitter wasn't built to deal with my level of awesomeness.

Somebody set up a Twitter feed archiving the now deleted HMV tweets, but I can't post a link because Twitter is over-capacity again.

WHAT IS GOING ON? CONFUSION!!!

Twitter doesn't fall over that much.

Here's a link to the Guardian article about the HMV tweets (that I got off Twitter, go me).

That list is now out of date as, and I do this a lot, I changed my handle (deal, Chief). I have been, variously, @hal2001, @cylon_centurion, @the24thframe, @populusque, and now @VoxPopple. Always the same account, I just change my name a lot. Although I quite like the current handle, tbh. It's punny. I doubt I'll change it again.

Probably.

What platform do others use? I tend to stick to the main site purely out of habit. I used to Tweetr before it stopped working and I've never really gotten to grips with Tweetdeck although not for want of trying.

So far my Twitter experience has consisted mainly of seeing a picture of a Whale being carried by some birds and being courted by the gangbanging community (it took less than an hour to be harassed by pornbots). The jury is out at the moment.

On general PC (ie, sneaking at work) I have the Chrome tweetdeck extension. On phone and tablet I just use the Twitter for Android apps.

I am Google's bitch, essentially.

Cheers, I'm giving Tweetdeck for Chrome a go. Seems ok at the moment. The last time I used Tweetdeck, I added facebook to my columns and it all got a bit messy. Gonna try and keep this a bit more streamline.

If you give yourself time to get to know Twitter and get used to it, there are a number of different third party platforms you can view it on. I use Tweetlogix on my iPod rather than the integrated Twitter app as it gives you much more options (muting users and trends is handy for the more annoying hashtags).

Also, last week I mentioned the documentary that he made on Steve Ditko, only to receive a follow from Jonathan Ross! Is it wrong that my first thought was "Monkeyshaver" and this thread when that happened?


Remembering that guy in any context is always wrong.


Ahh, yes, Monkeyshaver. When he shuffled off the mortal forum he left a void...a void that was temporarily filled by Jim R. But who serves as the board's resident over-zealous puritan now?
