Hey have you heard about this thing called “Twitter”?

I am now on the Twitter, as BjoernStaerk, and that is why every paragraph in this post is less than 140 characters. Nd prctc shrtnng sntncs.

So far I have mostly twittered (twut?) about how wonderful it is to be on Twitter. Twitterers (twits?) are like bloggers that way.

I also twit (twoot?) when I go to the bathroom, in case someone wonders where I am right now.

My first followers wanted to sell me cigars. My next followers came to hear about politics. I hope they like pirate-themed metal videos.

When you get 1000 followers I think you level up or something. At higher levels you get magic items. It’s awesome.

The hype is now so over that it isn’t even not cool to be on Twitter any more, so go right ahead and join.

Six word messages, next big thing.

    Twit, twut or twoot ?

    Twat is the appropriate word, in my opinion.

    Well, Hemingway is reported to have written a novel in six words:
    For Sale: baby shoes, never used.

    Joel Spolsky:

    “It’s a cacophony of people shouting their thoughts into the abyss without listening to what anyone else is saying. Logging on gives you a page full of little hand grenades: impossible-to-understand, context-free sentences that take five minutes of research to unravel and which then turn out to be stupid, irrelevant, or pertaining to the television series Battlestar Galactica. I would write an essay describing why Twitter gives me a headache and makes me fear for the future of humanity, but it doesn’t deserve more than 140 characters of explanation, and I’ve already spent 820.”

    Any thoughts?

  4. Sounds about right. Easy to solve though by just following people who write things you want to read.

    It was bad enough that you shortened yourself to max256. That you’ve become a twat quite simply isn’t suitable.
