That’s Quite Enough!

Avoiding IntrospectionI’m finally done testing this twitter->blog post tool. Thanks again for your patience and for putting up with a mass of tweets instead of real posts… which our recent couch surfers gave me a lot of grief about.

If you have a second, I’d love to hear your thoughts on Twitter and these twitter-posts.

  • Wow, Lex, I love to hear where you had coffee and lunch every day, and those great one sided conversations! Keep’em coming. [interesting]
  • Come on Lex, you’re boring my socks off, and my socks are pretty tolerant. [stupid]
  • Yawn… did you say something? [bored indifference]
  • WHAT?!?  Did you say something?  Sorry can’t hear you over this annoying twittering! [shut up would ya!]

A couple of notes to anyone interested in using and in this way:

  • I’ve had major issues changing the configuration of the daily posts after I initially set it up.  I even got help from the guy who created it and still had problems. I’ve given up trying to make the changes stick.
  • Yes, you do create an infinite loop!  The geek in me just loves a lazy infinite loop) and I set this up just to see what would happen.  Since it’s on a 24 hour loop, it’s not really all that impactful.  But it’s not brilliantly useful either and if you don’t stick on top of your twittering it becomes a self-referential infinite loop.

    I pretty much ignore the twittering. I like introspection and posts with substance. Or at least jokes and viral videos.

    I’ve called Twitter “blogging for extremely lazy people”
    Welcome back!

    Junkii, “introspection” and “posts with substance”? You might be setting the bar a little high. Perhaps I can point you at a couple of other blogs and you could pretend I’m writing them.
    Deadrobot, Thanks. Interesting perspective on twitter. I think of it almost the other way around. It’s the lazy-lex’s way of keeping up. I guess I just have to figure out how to get my RSS feeds working like twitter.


What do you think?
