Just from reading the faq's on the main page...it kinda seems like the updates feature on myspace, or the wall to wall feature on facebook. What's different about it, or maybe a better question...why would I be more inclined to use it over the other two?

Do you have it taco?

how is it?

I have not "twatted" as Stephen Colbert so eloquently stated:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/E4EoN4nr5FQ&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/E4EoN4nr5FQ&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

But I have read other's tweets. Here is another video that pretty much sums up Twitter:

<object width="400" height="342">
<param name="movie" value="http://current.com/e/89891774/en_US"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://current.com/e/89891774/en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="342" wmode="transparent" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always"></embed></object>

Yes. I think in 5 years, you'll be suprised to know someone who doesn't use Twitter in some form or fashion. It's being used like a toy right now - which is good, because they've established a foundation and have proven the model. But keep your eye on FaceBook and Twitter. Both are the next big Internet powerhouses (think Google).

:rofl: The internet is more vast than a few networking sites. Twitter is just another fad, and when this dies down (like myspace), we can go back to looking for pron.

Really??

As I understand it, the concept is to develop a base of contacts that you "twit" to.. short text bursts on what you're doing right that moment.

Most of what I do during any given day (or week) is not Twit worthy.

And I'll be damned if I'll invest the time and energy into developing the network in advance for my once in a blue moon twittable moment..

The whole concept is untenable. It is not possible to be cool twittering about a cool moment.

Various members of congress proved this recently: During Obama's address to congress last month, many congressmen and dignitaries were caught Twittering - "OMG!! I am totally at the President's speech!!!"

If you have the good fortune to have a truly Twittable moment, are you really going to ruin it by Twitting about it?

I'm not.

Taco, please elucidate what I'm missing in the potential(s) presented by this new technology?

I'm really curious why. I seem to understand how this twitter thing works but I don't get the appeal.

Of course I'm someone who had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the world of text messaging. I know people who only communicate through texts, they never actually use their phone for speaking. You have no choice but to text if you want to contact them. I'll admit I'm getting used to it but it's still a drag compared to every other form of communication.

So twitter is text messaging to anyone who cares to read it. Mini blogging. And this is going to take over the world how? Why? What am I missing?

People actually consider their 1's and 0's friends in cyberspace actual people that care about them.

I used facebook for about a week.

I got board about hearing about what some crazy aquaintance was having for lunch every day and all the pictures of the younger "friends" popping up all the time.

Maybe it is that I don't hang with a bunch of hot 20 somethings and I didn't want to see how great their lives were. Dunno

I just started a book called "Glut". It is about how humans have documented their histories. We have gone from the great libraries of Alexandria to twitter...

Not sure if that is a good thing.

I get annoyed with twitter - just like those people that update their myspace & facebook status a hundred times a day.

With the internet...everyone has a voice - now everyone doesn't think they are being heard - so they are turning the volume up.

I think twitter is the future - but i think it's annoying and over the top. It's sorta like an RSS feed of "your status".

I think i'll start putting "i'm taking a ****" or - "WTF is that" just to make a point.

There's a lot of truth in that. It goes into the "volume" statement i made earlier. All the of the ways to "connect" force us to get our "reality" 2nd/3rd hand, etc. We then become dependent on it, etc.

I feel that TV, the internet, etc - is what creates this "ADD America". Not by nec. fault. But i think that people don't balance out enough. If you life a hyperconnected life - think you should take 1 weekend out of the month with NO connection (or as little as possible).

Maybe i could make a fortune selling Thoreau vacations for burnt out upper/middle-classers.

I don't think print will ever be totally dead.

I'm embracing the new "media/mediums" with my magazine. (I'm working on mobile content/subscriptions). But i find print to be still...one of those things that's hard to explain. But my print model is very limited, and lots of DIY (Here's a PDF, you print).

I do have a limited run of 50 copies in print - i find print to be different. I think your brain absorbs/consumes it differently.

Ya, i have a windows mobile smart phone (pantech duo) - i get all my email - do lots of mobile surfing, etc -

but there is NOTHING like a book or a magazine - where you can just absorb it. People think imagination is limited to youth, but the fact is imagination is important in adulthood. You have to give your self the right things to consume to let it go/flow.

I think digital media (even more so than TV) - is random, and short - and it doesn't focus people's attention (or people are unwilling to do so) - and a lot gets lost.

I am not saying everyone has to read tons of books, but it's like practice/working out, etc - i think some things just need to be done for the health of the individual.

(Mental health is one of those).


PS - Moby dick? Wow, that's dry. lol - trust me - i love HD Thoreau - but some of those guys (and ones i like) - whew - it takes some coffee to read.

It's not too far from the Matrix when you think about it. We are plugged into a false universe and that distraction keeps us from facing the cold hard truth that we are meaningless.

The individual is dead, but he is twittering about the pb&j sandwich he is making.

Taco John
03-23-2009, 05:18 PM
Explain.

Tons of reasons, but the main one is that it's easy to keep in contact with people on facebook. You don't have to remember email addresses. You get to see their faces. People push out information on what they're up to. It's great for mobility. You can easily create networks and use their group pages for connecting and planning.

Email will never go away... Just like a lot of people still use their land lines, but keep a mobile number they will keep an email address and use facebook.

But Facebook has barely scratched the surface of it's potential, and Twitter is in it's gold rush phase right now as businesses are starting to turn on to its potential - and largely Business *still* doesn't get it yet. But they will...

...I guess I should caveat that... Not business email - but personal email. I already know people who communicate with their friends almost exclusively through FaceBook.

I'm surprised that they haven't already completely revamped their email interface. They finally added a search function for your FB inbox which is good for the people you already communicate with on FB I guess.

But why not just completely upgrade the mail service (read: make it more like Gmail).....and let people start using xxxxxxx@facebook.com as their primary email? I mean, it's not like it's that hard to have a FB tab & gmail tab open at the same time, but it seems to me that FB is missing a golden opportunity here.

If FB offered full function email & contacts, I'm sure there are millions of existing FB users who would bail on Yahoo mail & Gmail altogether (and Flickr & picasa to boot).

Isaac, honestly, that may be true for some people. But most people it is not. I dont know a single person (personally that is) on Facebook. Everyone that has "added" me on Facebook is from...the OrangeMane!

This is all the social networking I need. Anymore a-holes in my life and I might shoot someone :)
edit:
Let me add, all the people I know are both internet savvy and over 30. So that fits into the facebook category and none of them use it.

Facebook is just another fad. Its not useful.

As for remembering email, thats a retarded argument. Gmail, hotmail, yahoo, and every other email client automatically remembers used emails. You can simply type in the name of the person and it inserts their email and if you use Outlook not only can you do that but you can organize email so much easier. (Thunderbird, Outlook, any of the high end Email clients. Thunderbird kinda sucks though, and by kinda I mean royally).

If you find yourself on Facebook, you might be gay (no offense Chris)

Yep there were chapters of Whale anatomy that were tough to get through even when I tried my "How to read a book" speed reading tech but I am proud to say I read it.

Plus the fact that Kahn's speech at the end of Wrath of Kahn is stole from Ahab, which I never would have known:

"to the last I grapple with thee;from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee"

I think Kahn's theme is that of Ahab's and it is even more fun to read books written 160 years ago that were used in Movies from 30 years ago and you can really tell how the Myth is retold in a new way and exposed to a whole new audience.

I can't wait to rewatch Wrath of Kahn now with the knowledge of the Ahab theme.

Haha.

Isaac, honestly, that may be true for some people. But most people it is not. I dont know a single person (personally that is) on Facebook. Everyone that has "added" me on Facebook is from...the OrangeMane!

This is all the social networking I need. Anymore a-holes in my life and I might shoot someone :)
edit:
Let me add, all the people I know are both internet savvy and over 30. So that fits into the facebook category and none of them use it.

Facebook is just another fad. Its not useful.

As for remembering email, thats a retarded argument. Gmail, hotmail, yahoo, and every other email client automatically remembers used emails. You can simply type in the name of the person and it inserts their email and if you use Outlook not only can you do that but you can organize email so much easier. (Thunderbird, Outlook, any of the high end Email clients. Thunderbird kinda sucks though, and by kinda I mean royally).

If you find yourself on Facebook, you might be gay (no offense Chris)


If you're serious about web development, SEO and all that, you'd better get hip to Twitter and Facebook real fast. They're both going to be huge. Mark my words, my friend. The sooner you get ahead of the learning curve, the better off you're going to be. That's where all the new money is going to be made on the Internet. Web 2.0 is being left in the dust for Web 3.0.

The problem is that Web 2.0 is only about 2-3 (3-4) years old. If Web 3.0 lasts as long as web 2.0 it is almost a waste of time.

I love how Microsoft sells Sharepoint as this great Web 2.0 tool, anyone can start a sharepoint site to host data, data that is embedded in someone elses Sharepoint site.

People think disk storage is cheap, which it is but someone has to manage the data and it is a waste to backup all that useless replicated data stored all over sharepoint servers.

When IBM started their 1st website they found that people get lost after they go about 5 pages deep into a hierarchical structure.

Data rot sets in and company's spend lots of time and network resources backing up a site that may have been active for a few weeks at a time and then abandoned.

I hope Web 4.0 focuses on how all data is indexed.

I am starting to regurgitate from the book "Glut" but the dude is right on the money. We do not need multiple places to get the info, just have it indexed properly and have one place to pull the data from.

Anyone interested in data management or history of data retention really needs to read this booK!

You think King Henry V really said this at the battle of Agincourt?
KING HENRY V
What's he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin:
If we are mark'd to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires:
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England:
God's peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more, methinks, would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made
And crowns for convoy put into his purse:
We would not die in that man's company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is called the feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

Its just the web. Techniques used in developing it havent changed, just evolved. AJAX is the big buzzword and what Web 2.0 really is all about but it was developed in the ****ing 90s and has been used all over from the beginning.

Its just Javascripting combined with some sort of server side language. I can develop in any platform using most any code. I am well aware of all the latest techniques for development. Trust me Isaac, Social networking is never going to be as prominent and dominant as you think it is. It will always be around sure, but militia is right, the next phase of the web is combining search with better indexing and data management.

"Cloud" computing is going to be the next big programming fad that leads to more efficient use of coding but it will again only be part of it. I dont need to use Facebook or twitter or be involved in any of it, as long as I know how to program for it which takes all of 2 or 3 days of going over its API.

Yes. I think in 5 years, you'll be suprised to know someone who doesn't use Twitter in some form or fashion. It's being used like a toy right now - which is good, because they've established a foundation and have proven the model. But keep your eye on FaceBook and Twitter. Both are the next big Internet powerhouses (think Google).

From what I understand, Twitter is basically a toned-down version of Fackbook.

You have 'status updates' on Facebook and Twitter. The key is to leave them vague, and people will inquire.

My most recent status updates:


Nathan Anderson wishes they would stop trying to make Myoplex taste good by adding sugar or sorbitol. You don't eat/drink Myoplex for the taste; it will always taste bad, so you might as well make it healthier by not putting sugar or sugar alcohols in it. 11:21am

My someone is touchy today.

I should have used the word quote, but it wasn't presented that way in the movie. I didn't get the whole parallel until I read the book, I was praising the writers for using a masterwork from the english lit canon.

I didn't think of Ahab before when I watched the movie, I saw a stud with chicks hanging on both arms with his shirt open. Not a monomaniacal (as Ishmael called him) old Nantucket whaler with a wooden leg.

BTW everyone should read the 1st couple paragraphs of Mody Dick, the dude really set a great tempo and tone, he loses it and gets it back throughout the book but it I can see why it is considered a classic.

Considering I have only been in the Chat room once and I find Chat rooms annoying I doubt I am going to use Twitter.

Imagine being able to look up anytime two people on the street had a conversation about your product and see what they had to say.

As a business owner imagine the value of that.

Take it a step forward. Imagine you being able to not just use that has valuable feedback but to have the ability to join into that conversation and create a customer service situation where there was none before.

That is one of the things Twitter can bring to the table.

I am surprised by someone people's reactions to it. Twitter is what you make of it. If you don't like hearing about what someone had for lunch then do not follow people who talk about what they had for lunch. Your Twitter reads are of your own making.

You can use Twitter to niche market like never before by listening and reacting to your customers. It is community building. It is about quality. The idea that instead of trying to get a huge number of random people to see your company is selling a shiny new bike you would rather be influencing bike shop owners to recommend this bike to you customers. A smaller amount of YOUR customers and YOUR customers only.

Targeting influencer's and using the trust they have built up with their readership is the name of the game.

Heh, I understand. It isn't for everyone and that is fine. It has never been my intent to convince every person that Twitter is for them. But if there are things are interested in you can get drawn to the community aspect of it just like the OM.

I love it for all the interesting happenings and information I have gotten from all the new people I follow in the city I live. Events, recommendation, help...

I use it for personal reasons and business.

Eh, I am not sure a Facebook group does anything to add value that isn't already a strength of the Orange Mane aside from being a database for OMers to find eachother of FB.

I think Twitter is the future of the Internet. I'm just starting to open up to the possibilities of it. I think the concept is going to revolutionize the Internet.
The real future of the web is rooted in collaborative business environments that facilitate real time interaction...the so-called emergent enterrpise that Fortune 1000's are to top heavey to manage...are technologically seamless, promote scaleable applications through open source environments and have the ability to go mobile without being a pain in the ass...all within a convergence media model.

From what I see of Twitter right now...I'm not that excited. If somebody buys IMEEM and rescues it from being more than a VC project with Google-like promise...that platform is infinitely superior.

Besides...who really wants to tell their friends they like to "twitter"? 8')

Yes. I think in 5 years, you'll be suprised to know someone who doesn't use Twitter in some form or fashion. It's being used like a toy right now - which is good, because they've established a foundation and have proven the model. But keep your eye on FaceBook and Twitter. Both are the next big Internet powerhouses (think Google).

Nice topic... I cannot say one is going to be better than other. But web 2.0 is starting this whole revolution. All i can say is, if you dont know about it today and you are not using it.. soon you will be.

Twitter and Facebook are getting merged to corporate's really fast. Wait and watch atitude will be what other new innovations will strom in the next few years. But if you dont twitter today.. i bet you will get to twett land soon

A friend of a Twitter user's daughter went missing...he tried to get the word out on Twitter because they used the service and know a lot of people in the area...

4 hours after the original message it was being relayed at a rate of 250+ every 5 mins.

I use Facebook daily. I used to be on Myspace, but I rarely do anything with that anymore. But twitter, no thanks. Maybe it will morph into something more useful in the future. But the way I see it, it's just a bunch of status updates.

On Facebook a good amount of people's status updates are useless information. Like, "I'm good to bed, good night facebook". Like, I really don't care that you're going to bed, why did you send that out to everybody. A big time UCLA basketball player was on my friends list and I had to delete him because he was updating his status like 15 times a day. It was so annoying. I change my status update maybe once every week or two. Only if something big or interesting or funny happens. I don't feel the need to tell people that I'm at work or I'm going shopping. It's just annoying, and it seems like twitter is just useless status updates.

So I won't be using it until it becomes something more than that.

One thing that annoys the hell out of me is people who use the short hand text when they do not have to. I can understand it in a text message or on twitter, when you have limited characters, but I'll get an email, which has unlimited character space, from a person with language like this:

"y r u going 2 the house b4 4 when u can go 2nite?"

What the hell is that? It seems like it would take longer to figure out how to type that short hand then just typing the entire word out. If it's limited characters, I'm cool, but if a person can type the whole thing out, then type the whole thing out.

I set on a public utilities board and we were approached by a customer who offered to set up twitter as a way for us to let customers know when power or water outage situations occur. The customers that have signed up seem to really like it. We send a text message to twitter and it's sent to all customers that have sign up on twitter. There are endless possibilities for it use .......... I had my doubts at first but I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks....

I joined twitter about a year ago to see what it was. It appeared useless. I figured that maybe it would be fun if I were a highschool girl who wanted to follow all the hot celeberties, but I didn't see the need otherwise. Boy has my perception changed. The mere fact that every media outlet and many stars use twitter is in and of itself a communication phenomenon. I don't personally update my status but once every few week... but great source for information and news.

I used to go to Milehighreport, Denverpost, broncotalk, and Omane just to make sure I had every little bit of Broncos news available. With twitter, I follow all of the above, plus like 10 other sports reports and a handful of actual Broncos players. Twitter is the first site I go to in the morning and the last one I check at night during the season. Great way to find out a lot of information with links quickly. Also interesting to see three or four different perspectives twatted at the same time like the recent BMarsh incident.

I mean who wants to hear that boring ****? I have like 2-3 things a month interesting enough to tell my friends about it but even they don't want to get it in a tweet.

What's funny is people say big brother watching, I want privacy, then put every detail of life on some webpage, or twitter etc.

I'm surprised that they haven't already completely revamped their email interface. They finally added a search function for your FB inbox which is good for the people you already communicate with on FB I guess.

But why not just completely upgrade the mail service (read: make it more like Gmail).....and let people start using xxxxxxx@facebook.com as their primary email? I mean, it's not like it's that hard to have a FB tab & gmail tab open at the same time, but it seems to me that FB is missing a golden opportunity here.

If FB offered full function email & contacts, I'm sure there are millions of existing FB users who would bail on Yahoo mail & Gmail altogether (and Flickr & picasa to boot).

http://www.techcrunch.com/2010/02/05/facebooks-project-titan-a-full-featured-webmail-product/

Facebook’s Project Titan: A Full Featured Webmail Product

by Michael Arrington on February 5, 2010

Facebook is completely rewriting their messaging product and is preparing to launch a fully featured webmail product in its place, according to a source with knowledge of the product. Internally it’s known as Project Titan. Or, unofficially and perhaps over-enthusiastically, the Gmail killer.

Facebook messaging has been the bane of users’ existence for years. My first public gripe was in 2008, when I said that urgent changes were needed. The biggest problem is simply deleting old emails. It takes so long that I have thousands of unread and read but not deleted messages in my inbox.

But Facebook messaging is also only indirectly linked to the email, which is still the standard way that people exchange digital messages when not on Facebook.

Facebook has occasionally dabbled with improvements to messaging, like adding the ability to search messages. But for the most part it has remained static. And not very useful.

Even MySpace moved away from their aging messaging platform to a true webmail service in 2008 (albeit one that lacked POP or IMAP support).

But now Facebook is getting itself back in the game. And if the details we’ve heard are accurate, Project Titan, or whatever it’s called when it launches, may be the kind of product people flock to.

First, our understanding is that there will be full POP/IMAP support, meaning users can access the account other than through Facebook itself. Your email account name will be your vanity url – vanityurl@facebook.com.

Email is all about identity. And Facebook is ahead of everyone else in the identity game via Facebook Connect. Facebook says more than 60 million people log in to 80,000 third party websites each month via Facebook Connect.

Tacking a real webmail product on top of those vanity URLs and Facebook connect is something even Google may shudder at. Gmail killer? I don’t think so. But a strong product move nonetheless.

Will do! If i learned anything from this past process, its how much self promotion is needed regardless of the press PR entity supporting your work. Since mine came out, a lot of cool things have happened, learned a lot, and its still growing (hopefully into a film soon, talks about that currently going on, but who knows). But yeah, no one will pitch your work like you will, and with social media and whatnot, you have a voice to do it yourself. Its pretty cool.

"looking forward to having an in-depth and personal conversation with you at 140 characters or less."

Best line I've overheard about twitter:

Younger person: "My generation has a lot to say"

Older person: "I know, that's why we've limited it to 140 characters"

Just followed you. I've got a decent amount of followers that would be in your target demographic (me being a brewer at a brewery) so if there is anything you would like me to retweet just DM me. But beware, if you follow me, you will get a bunch of beer related tweets.

Havin kids, brewing lots of beer, and wishing that I had more time to f-around.

DM is the acronym for Direct Message. Its like an email but your limited to 140 characters. I used to run our brewery's twitter account (being a marketing director in a former life), so if you ever want some tips and tricks to gain followers, email me derrick (at) twistedpinebrewing.com.

I know a lot of people think twitter is for the ultra-nerdy and for the self absorbed tween Bieber fan, but I've made some amazing business contacts and friends with twitter. Besides, who are we to make fun of twitter, we argue about Brian Griese on a forum dedicated to a football team that hasn't been relevant in 15 years.

Facebook is increasingly "myspace" to me

Twitter is increasingly becoming my news source.

The best way I can describe it to people is a "build your own newspaper" for the online generation. The 140 character thing is a funky way to get you the most concise version of the info. I barely follow my own friends. That's just really not the point. It's about news and stuff that interests you.

Facebook and Twitter work perfectly together. I think FB works as sort of a homebase for your immediate community, and Twitter are shouts out into the universe. They serve different functions, but since Corporate America has embraced both...neither are going anywhere anytime soon.

I agree, it's interesting though how important a good website has still maintained relevance.

Interesting. I didn't see this tweet, but I think I know what he is referring to. Plummer was on The Fan Monday morning and made some comments about WRs in general complaining too much and not fighting for the ball. He didn't name specific WRs, but it was implied. I tend to agree with him.

I have also noticed some saltiness with a lot of players this week on twitter in regard to fans/media. I hope it's a sign that they are pissed off and not a sign that they are losing it mentally.
