Tweet harmony
  • 10:05 Yammer will suddenly become a whole lot more usable (not necessarily *useful*!) if I can update it from Twitter... #yam #
  • 10:45 Lazily cloning web pages to show different CSS comes back to bite me: conflicting edits, confusion, doom. :-( #yam #
  • 17:13 @jpstacey: we bought a Henry vacuum cleaner (with low-energy setting for normal use) after lots of recommendations... #
  • 17:20 @jpstacey: also, if you want to try our Henry out, you're welcome (on our carpet, of course, ha ha - no, only joking). #

ETA: I did tell LoudTwitter not to include @replies, but it looks like that didn't work (maybe I didn't save settings or something... trying again).

That's disconcerting - my brother is also a J P Stacey ...

Why not?

Alternatively, if you're doing it for personal archive purposes (or similar), you could always put it behind a cut, or on a special filter, to avoid irritating those who don't want to read it. (I know loudtwitter can be made to do this automagically, as other friends of mine have it set up this way, but don't use twitter myself and therefore have no idea how to set it up.)

I couldn't see a way to do it in loudtwitter, but will investigate - thanks!

I'm not doing it for archive purposes, though, I'm doing it because I never get round to posting anything on LJ any more and I (vainly, perhaps) believe that there are people who read my LJ because they're mildly interested in what I'm up to, who aren't on Twitter...

_no-one_ is interesting in those little 140-chara chunks

To you, fine. (You do know that "interesting" is subjective, don't you?)

I suppose other people in that category aren't on Twitter for similar reasons.

There are, I'm sure, other people who aren't on Twitter for similar reasons to yours. There are also people who aren't on Twitter for all sorts of other reasons.

I don't need it in the paper either way.

So do you a) write lots of green-crayon letters to the editor explaining that nobody is interested in television (you infer this from the fact that you don't like it, and everybody must be like you) and therefore they must stop including it right away, or b) stop buying the paper?

That reminds me, I'm still waiting for the Oxford Mail to write back and tell me that they've taken my advice and stopped printing all that crap about sport that nobody can possibly be interested in.

I like it. Keep doing it!

Well, I like it when other people do it; if they're people I'm interested in, then I like to see their tweets as well as their LJ entries - easy to miss lots of stuff on Twitter. And a post of short bullet points is very easy to skim. (If they're people I'm *not* interested in, then I'd probably just stop reading them rather than whinge about the style of their posts, no?)

As someone said to me when I was dithering about whether to include twitter: it's your journal so write what you like in it.

Well, yeah, up to a point, but if it's going to make all my LJ-friends hate me then it seems like a daft thing to do.

I just made this: http://ceb.livejournal.com/105571.html COMPLETELY SCIENTIFIC study of whether people hate other people for putting Twitterings on LJ. Not that we have quite the same friends list, but it's unlocked so you can always point people at it if you like.

FWIW I'm one of the people who quite likes reading gatewayed bits of twitter, and not likely to join twitter myself any time soon.
