I should be working out but I’m not. I mean I’ve gained a ton of weight but I’m kind of thinking “what’s a few pounds more, right?” so I’ve decided to write a post instead. After all, I’m a terrific typist and can type over 100 wpm so I’m burning some calories that way, right?
So I was talking to some people on Twitter today if having a conversation on Twitter could be actually considered talking and I’m going to comment on some of those convos.
First, I think I should possibly keep my mouth shut; probably in general but specifically regarding Twitter. I saw a tweet this morning from Darren Rowse (@ProBlogger) about having a bunch of spammers and of course, me being me, I had to send him some advice. Here’s his tweet:
And here’s mine:
He referred to Chris Brogan (@ChrisBrogan) who also responded. I didn’t know who he was either. I realized after giving them advice that these guys had 87,000 and 191,191 followers respectively and who the hell was I to be giving them advice? Then I realized that it was typical that I would a) put my foot in my mouth and b) ignore common sense anyways.
True, True Chris! At any rate, I suppose one of the things I like about Twitter is that it’s a great equalizer. If people want to talk to you they’re just people. I like to Tweet anyone I feel like it. Now normally, the big “Tweeters” don’t respond but occasionally they do but I suppose that I’m sort of a stalker in that I just Tweet who I want.
I, of course, knew who ProBlogger was (having once googled him) but had no idea who Chris Brogan is. I do now because I checked him out and feel that he’s extremely lucky to have had an interaction with me. Also, I’m pleased that I screwed up his numbers because he had 191,191 following him and I made it 191,192 which isn’t quite as awesome. However, thought I should acknowledge that he had a few more followers than I did so I sent this to him:
and he replied with:
I fucking love Twitter!
On another note, can I tell y’all something? Speaking of y’all (and this isn’t the something I wanted to tell you), Tricia Helfer (of Battlestar Galactica) is now ALWAYS spelling y’all properly. I corrected her on THIS POST but see below. Man I’m good.
At any rate, here’s what I wanted to tell you. I spend most of my time on my iPad. I mean, I have a computer where I write up posts and type and shit and play games but mostly I’m on my iPad and you know what I hate? I FUCKING HATE those stupid formats that are “just for iPad!”
You know, the ones where you SWIPE it to get where you’re going? I hate them. Stop using them. They’re fucking annoying. That’s my opinion and very frankly on this blog, it’s the only one you’re going to get. I know there’s an option on WordPress that asks if you want to have a special format for iPad so for future reference, please say NO! I did.
If you like it then keep it but I hate those sites and rarely go there as a result. Its’ possible others don’t feel this way. I don’t know them and I don’t care and even if I do know them I don’t care.
Now, where was I?
Oh yeah, I was nowhere. I certainly have more than my fair share of rambling posts. Well, in summation. Talk to whom you want. Say what you want. Do what you want. And … and… don’t use those swipe thingies.
I’m just saying …
