twittering  
Yep, I've certainly been twittering more than posting to livejournal. 92 updates since I joined three weeks ago. Bet you're glad I don't have them automatically posting to livejournal.

I've set up twitter for my mobile and I'm going to try that loudtwitter once a day posting so that I can easily update from the bookcrossing convention at the weekend. I apologise in advance if it goes wrong!

For those who are very curious, but don't want to click over to another site, here's a manual update of all my twittering to date:


mollydot Back from a lovely meal in Akasaka in Castleknock. I love Japanese food. about 2 hours ago
mollydot @conoro what's borked for you? I'm not noticing any probs - FF & ubuntu. Though I'm just refreshing /home every now and then (until now!) about 4 hours ago

mollydot @bannerdude: Just learnt who you are. Hello! I recommend getting laid off. I'm having a four-month weekend :-) 07:43 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot trying out #hashtags by repeating my observation that http://www.socialcomicbook.... is nice, but probably breaking CC and #flickr terms. 06:00 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot @elana Thanks! Your earlier suggestion to buy tiny one is perfect!It's shiny, and just red, no yellow or orange, but it completes the piece. 05:52 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot @elana: people can be locked so that only they people they follow can see their updates. Is that what you mean? 03:57 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot In fact, I already did. That's how I got that update I didn't remember doing! (deleted now) 03:43 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot this serach plugin is cool, but I suspect I'll accidentally twitter my google search terms. Could be embarassing. 03:42 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot trying out the post to twitter search plugin for firefox 03:36 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot @elana I've tried google. I found three set up, but not in use - French, Italian and Spanish. 03:28 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot wondering if any one uses twitter for educational purposes, eg posting a Spanish phrase a day. 02:17 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot @davidg: so it is. No fair! 12:31 PM March 26, 2008
mollydot has a migraine and is relieved she doesn't have to go to the building site as planned. 11:00 AM March 26, 2008


mollydot @elana: Hmm... might work. Can I mail you a picture for your opinion. 10:38 PM March 25, 2008
mollydot @elana: thing is, I'm making a very small decorative one. I'm not sure how to make a pompom that small. And I've space issues. 08:24 PM March 25, 2008
mollydot @davidg: It's from Firefly. http://tinyurl.com/38tw7x A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything. 03:56 PM March 25, 2008
mollydot wondering if a pompom is a necessity for a Jayne hat. 03:13 PM March 25, 2008
mollydot thinks http://www.socialcomicbook.... is a cool idea, but reckons it's breaking the CC license and the flickr hosting conditions. 02:07 PM March 25, 2008

That is FAR TOO complicated for an old lady. Can't make head nor tail of it. I'll just have to hope that you do an occasional LJ post - that is about the limit of my techno achievements.

Have fun.

First off, there's absolutely no need to read it - it's three weeks worth of random burbling. No need to read the rest of this comment either :-)

Some useful info for understanding it:
- it's reverse chronological order (makes slightly more sense read from the bottom)
- @elana means I'm replying to something elana said. So you're only getting one side of the conversation.
- the time/date at the end of each line is when I posted
- the "mollydot" at the beginning of each one. Well, that's who posted, ie me :-) I left it in, even though they are all me, as sometimes I used it as part of a sentence, eg "mollydot was looking at bathrooms again today".

It'll look different when it's posted automatically by loudtwitter.

Quick summary: I joined twitter, added some friends, wondered whether to tell someone who I was (I know him in real life), got advice from elana about some knitting (the Jayne hat), experimented with ways of updating twitter, looked at house related things, talked about Earth Hour with conoro, found out about our Taoiseach stepping down, booked accommodation and final flight for the BC convention, went to in-laws/building site - very happy with the tiling so far, complained about the weather and lack of heating, went knitting with friends, also ate and read various things.

See above for some explanation, summary and a comment on how important it is to read it :-)

I hope it's okay that I added you as a friend. I am really looking forward to hearing about the London bookcrossing convention!
a very caring potatomollydot on April 16th, 2008 04:40 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! I'm not sure the updates will work though :-(

So much to do, so little time for stalking. Appreciate the Twitter omnibus edition!

I haven't started Twittering yet but I was thinking the same thing about the Facebook status line - it's more interesting than I expected. The only thing holding me back is that I might have to start pecking at my mobile phone to do updates from the road and I already know I don't enjoy that.

Well, you don't have to use the mobile. OTOH, I kept saying I wouldn't, and now I am.
