I now pronounce you…

December 4, 2009

Again, Social Media takes on a whole new meaning. Love the minister: “It’s now official on Facebook and in my Book.” HA!

Twitter a Tune…or 2000

October 2, 2009

You have nothing else to do, so do this.  Courtesy of mashable (and managed by a fellow named Gabriel Nijmeh who must truly be dedicated.)   A spreadsheet of over 2000 musicians who TWEET!   I couldn’t stay awake long enough to see if Steven Tyler is Twitter-er.  But there was some musician who calls himself Totally Michael.  (Ugh.  My ex-husbands’s name was Michael-nothing musical about him.) I also learned that Christina Aguilera’s Twitter account has been suspended.  What did SHE do?

Others on this list whose names amuse me: Orgy of Noise, La Snacks, Pop Tarts Suck Toasted, The Dead Girls, The Dead Cocks (these last two should do a concert together) cassettes wont listen, You, Me and Iowa, (seriously), and maybe my favorite:  Sex with no Hands, described as an accordion funk band from San Francisco.  

And if Tweeting titillates you, connect with others via the Mega List of Tweeters found here.

Finally, read what George Parker thinks about Twitter here. I love that crusty old sweetheart!

Josh Klein’s Twitter Thoughts

April 10, 2009

This is a very good article on Twitter.  Josh Klein comments, “Twitter suffers from something we haven’t seen very often on the internet — a reverse network effect. Twitter becomes less useful the more people use it.”

Josh shares some smart information here.  Even if he does call himself an “obtuse misanthrope”. I hope his mother doesn’t know he uses language like that.
