Didn't see a thread. So, micro-bloging, then.

what's the point when you have FB status updates?

baaderonixx, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 15:02 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm an addict.

Allen, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 15:04 (thirteen years ago) link

The status updates on facebook are one of my favourite aspects of FB, so I liked the idea of twitter when I first heard about it a week or so ago. I've signed up, but it hasn't stuck with me as yet, I think because none of my friends are using it.

Twitter is for productivity douche-bags and aspirational web developers.

fields of salmon, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 22:49 (thirteen years ago) link

I used to use Twitter quite a lot, but Facebook status updates reach a lot more of my friends, and I can do them from my phone as easily as a Twitter so I've kind of abandoned it.

I think Twitter is good for publishing interesting links and news and things, and for asking advice from the microblogosphere, but for the latter you'd need a whole load of like-minded followers and it's hard to get there.

Alba, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 22:53 (thirteen years ago) link

I think I will have to use it for a while before I decide if I love it or hate it.

I use Twitter to keep up with a very small handful of friends (FreakyTrigger mob mostly) so mine is mostly a collection of stupid injokes that come to my mobile. I like that a lot, saves me having to text loads of people at once, but it freaks me out when I see random strangers following me. I have to purge my followers list about once a week.

this is a shame, because your minute-by-minute update from "control" was fucking genius. for the few minutes it lasted.

This is the key, really. Twitter got some ferocious use at wwdc, and was v. good for finding out what was giong on where, and what sessions to leave, etc, but it doesn't work so well if you've just trucked up in some random place.

There's a twitter client for iPhone that might help with that though -- it shows you all the updates from folks in your location.

El Tomboto, Wednesday, 6 August 2008 00:50 (twelve years ago) link

the end of twitter in the UK? er: yes, as far as i can see. i don't want to have to *look* for tweets. i want them to come to me:


Hi,

I'm sending you this note because you registered a mobile device
to work with Twitter over our UK number. I wanted to let you
know that we are making some changes to the way SMS works on
Twitter. There is some good news and some bad news.

I'll start with the bad news. Beginning today, Twitter is no
longer delivering outbound SMS over our UK number. If you enjoy
receiving updates from Twitter via +44 762 480 1423, we are
recommending that you explore some suggested alternatives.

Note: You will still be able to UPDATE over our UK number.

Before I go into more detail, here's a bit of good news: Twitter
will be introducing several new, local SMS numbers in countries
throughout Europe in the coming weeks and months. These new
numbers will make Twittering more accessible for you if you've
been using SMS to send long-distance updates from outside the UK.

Why are we making these changes?

Mobile operators in most of the world charge users to send
updates. When you send one message to Twitter and we send it to
ten followers, you aren't charged ten times--that's because we've
been footing the bill. When we launched our free SMS service to
the world, we set the clock ticking. As the service grew in
popularity, so too would the price.

Our challenge during this window of time was to establish
relationships with mobile operators around the world such that
our SMS services could become sustainable from a cost perspective.
We achieved this goal in Canada, India, and the United States.
We can provide full incoming and outgoing SMS service without
passing along operator fees in these countries.

We took a risk hoping to bring more nations onboard and more
mobile operators around to our way of thinking but we've arrived
at a point where the responsible thing to do is slow our costs
and take a different approach. Since you probably don't live in
Canada, India, or the US, we recommend receiving your Twitter
updates via one of the following methods.

m.twitter.com works on browser-enabled phones
m.slandr.net works on browser-enabled phones
TwitterMail.com works on email-enabled phones
Cellity [http://bit.ly/12bw4R] works on java-enabled phones
TwitterBerry [http://bit.ly/MFAfJ] works on BlackBerry phones
Twitterific [http://bit.ly/1WxjwQ] works on iPhones

Twitter SMS by The Numbers

It pains us to take this measure. However, we need to avoid
placing undue burden on our company and our service. Even with a
limit of 250 messages received per week, it could cost Twitter
about $1,000 per user, per year to send SMS outside of Canada,
India, or the US. It makes more sense for us to establish fair
billing arrangements with mobile operators than it does to pass
these high fees on to our users.

Twitter will continue to negotiate with mobile operators in
Europe, Asia, China, and The Americas to forge relationships
that benefit all our users. Our goal is to provide full, two-way
service with Twitter via SMS to every nation in a way that is
sustainable from a cost perspective. Talks with mobile companies
around the world continue. In the meantime, more local numbers
for updating via SMS are on the way. We'll keep you posted.

Thank you for your attention,
Biz Stone, Co-founder
Twitter, Inc.

I never understood why anyone would want tweets pushed to them. I get excited when I receive a text. I don't want to find it's some spazz like me telling the world they've found an odd-coloured bogey up their nose.

Alba, Thursday, 14 August 2008 09:21 (twelve years ago) link

it would be nice, when the iphone's push service is switched on, if twitter would push messages down to twitterific - this would solve the 'excited when I receive a text only to find it's about a bogey' problem

cozwn, Thursday, 14 August 2008 09:31 (twelve years ago) link

If my phone had let me assign unique message alert tones to numbers like it does with ringtones and voice calls then the problem might have gone away.

Alba, Thursday, 14 August 2008 09:34 (twelve years ago) link

Maybe the fundamental problem is that I'm not interested enough in other people.

Used it cause I was excited (are you still an early adopter a full year after the SXSW explosion of use?), then didn't for a few months cause I didn't really see the point, now I'm usin it again cause I've had some new local friends start following me.

Good for questions, link-sharing, Microemo bursts, etc.

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Thursday, 14 August 2008 13:25 (twelve years ago) link

I have a friend who uses this to read his friends' feeds, so I basically only see it from the angle of a person who is constantly checking his phone while I'm trying to have a conversation with him. The first time I heard of Twitter was from him when I finally got exasperated with his constantly checking his phone.

Maybe I'm the one with the problem, but I can't really think of anyone in the world interesting enough for me to want updates on their activities throughout the day. I'd say the only people I could imagine wanting to twitter could be: Drug smuggler, violent prison inmate, Slash-in-his-heyday type rock star, and a dog (if they somehow managed to translate its thoughts into English text).

tehresa, Thursday, 14 August 2008 14:55 (twelve years ago) link

SMS functionality seems to be its USP now that Facebook status updates have taken the mainstream microblogging space.

As I said above, people using it for pushed news bulletins and question-broadcasting rather than personal what-i'm-doing stuff is another application.

ugh, the post going around about the pizza place in ohio with the owner that gave all the workers the "profit" (spoiler: it was not the profit) from the day to the workers, who then earned $78/hour for that day, leading to the conclusion that the owner could pay their workers that much every day if they really wanted to

all of that, so much of it veering toward something that is the truth, but it's all based upon shitty reporting, shitty headline writing, a screengrab of the article rather than a link to the real one, and social media.

If only someone had written some sort of theory, about labor and even maybe about value….a labor and value theory or something like that…ah! But alas! pic.twitter.com/Mjd1B3bIIs

— Middle Tennessee DSA 🌹 (@MidTNDSA) July 16, 2021

i looked at the original story to confirm that the headline was wrong. it was not the "entire day of profits", it was the entire day of revenue: sales + tips. this single paragraph tells you all you need to know to make an estimate for how much business they usually do and about how many workers they have:

On a typical Monday, they do about 100 orders. This week, they did 220 orders, which translated to over $6,000 in sales and over $1,000 in tips, all of which went back to the employees. Each worker made about $78 an hour for that shift.

why does this matter? because i've seen at least 3 people on twitter today, 2 that i know, saying this is a great example for the left, with "concrete numbers" that "prove" things bla bla bla. uggggggh, no, no. i mean, it is a good example, but it doesn't mean what you think it means, and $78/hour is

some of these unseen twitter posts, i made, also - they were life-affirming. i can't show them to you now, of course, i lost them, and to be honest i don't really remember what they were about. but i remember thinking while typing them, "you know this is kind of cool that i'm coming back to twitter in this positive way". now i remember nothing. i have no positive feelings, toward twitter or otherwise. twitter, you took away my patriotic freedom, but you also took away my freedom of liberty. and for that, i will never forget. 1 hour and it's on @jack
