Ooh, I just joined Twitter. So sue me, I'm bored. 

I'm hal_2001. (Variants of Homer were taken and homersimpson_esq was one character too long.)

I am so going to use mine for one line film reviews.



I thought that was you! (the 2001 picture kinda gave it away) I look forward to stalking you

I'm posting really rarely on Twitter at the mo, I tend to just read what other people are doing.

What software do you use to post and follow? I use tweetr as I like to see the messages popping up briefly while I'm working.

Software? I just post on the website... I always get confused when I see people posting off the tweetdeck or whatever, I have no idea what these things are...

http://www.tweet-r.com/

Gives it an MSN style frontend. It means you can follow people without being logged into the website. Also a lot easier to remember to twitter when you're logged in.

Tweetdeck is a more advanced client and I can see it would be useful for people with thousands of followers, but I prefer the way tweetr shows the message in the alert rather than just saying "you have 1 new message".

Hmmm, Barack Obama is apparently following me. That's either unspeakably awesome or pretty scary.

On a similar note Rahm Emanuel (Obama's chief of staff) has a fake one which is pretty amusing. One of todays posts read.

"In response to calls for a display of confidence, I have advised the President to deliver his speech tonight while wearing a speedo."

Just silly things like this that make me laugh.

It's also good for getting help, Amelie helped me find somewhere to watch the Oscars on sunday night after my plea for help

Ten minutes on a film forum is nowhere near as bad as 24 hour updating of what you're doing.  Isn't it just a good way of spying on people anyway?

So, browsing a forum is still bad then? Yes, I suppose twitter is just another form of the increasing connectivity that we have between each other. You can see that as being bad or good.

I, myself, have succumbed to it...which is odd because I never sign up to these type of things, I don't have Facebook etc. My twitter name is Ueno_Hama

Add me, if you want...to be bored.

Who said they spent 24 hours on it, and not just 10 minutes to do an update?

You.. don't spend 24 hours clicking 'refresh', hoping beyond hope someone else has posted something? Is it just me?
