Finally on Twitter

Overheard in an IRC chat room (Freenode#oracle) this morning…

[24 May 11 09:30] * cheboygan: glad to see that someone read the
  blog post though.  at least i know one person read it.
[24 May 11 09:30] * rizzo: it got re-tweeted a lot last week
[24 May 11 09:30] * rizzo: get yourself on twitter, man
[24 May 11 09:30] * cheboygan: i've been resisting...
[24 May 11 09:30] * rizzo: give in
[24 May 11 09:30] * rizzo: it calls to you
[24 May 11 09:31] * cheboygan is still fighting it
[24 May 11 09:31] * rizzo: resistance is futile
[24 May 11 09:31] * cheboygan will never be assimilated
[24 May 11 09:32] * cheboygan: is there a point to having a twitter
  acct  if it's not tied to some kind of mobile device?
[24 May 11 09:34] * rizzo: cheboygan: sure, most of my twitter
  stuff is done at my desk
[24 May 11 09:34] * rizzo: just reading and posting updates
[24 May 11 09:35] * cheboygan: hm.  i just did a search and it 
  turns out there's a twitter plugin for my chat program.  might
  give that a try actually.  wow, really didn't think i'd be so
  easily persuaded.
[24 May 11 09:49] * rizzo: Dan Norris will thank me for this
[24 May 11 09:49] * cheboygan: have to admit that i did hold out
  for an impressively long time :)

[24 May 11 09:50] * rizzo: what's your twitter handle?
[24 May 11 09:50] * cheboygan: haven't setup the account quite
  yet... give me a few more minutes :)
[24 May 11 09:50] * rizzo: heh ok
[24 May 11 09:50] * rizzo refreshes madly

[24 May 11 09:56] * rizzo: bieber4life?
[24 May 11 09:57] * cheboygan: are you kidding?  bieber4life is
  definitely taken.

[24 May 11 10:04] * cheboygan: the problem with holding out on
  something like twitter, is that the longer you wait the more
  impossible it is to have any readable kind of handle.
[24 May 11 10:06] * cheboygan: maybe i should write a blog post
  and elicit suggestions or something.  this is ridiculous.  in
  fact, even the word ridiculous is taken.
[24 May 11 10:10] * Ramen: use l33t
[24 May 11 10:11] * cheboygan: just dicovered underscore is ok.
  new possibilities.

Just a few minutes after this, I finally caved in and signed up for Twitter.  My account is @jer_s – feel free to find me over there while I try to figure out what you’re supposed to do with this Twitter thing.

  2. Welcome to the Twitter world. Personally one of the most benefits I’ve seen using Twitter is to follow the breaking news around the world. It’s THE tool that even major TV networks could not compete with when it comes to real-time update of the current events.
