The challenges of Twitter

Euen Semple

Really interesting Joe Rogan podcast with Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter. It was also fun to hear Dorsey talk about the early days when we were all making it up, and I mean all, Twitter felt very much a group effort in those days. link]. Fascinating to hear the two of them work out the challenges and ethics of this vast network of conversations.

Journalism without Twitter

Doc Searls

Both are closed to me now, because Twitter hates my login, at least for my own tweetings as @dsearls. So, to use Twitter I logged off @VRM on Firefox, failed to log in as myself, created the new password through Twitter’s new password creating routine with Twitter, and writing it down, because Dashlane didn’t remember it, even when I went on Dashlane and edited the entry. Twitter on Chrome wouldn’t let me in.

Twitter failings

Doc Searls

The first time I went to Twitter this morning, I got this: Before that, the computer had been asleep all night.

Twitter Is Where Conversations Go To Die

Twitter has now become, once again, another messaging board system, like a good bunch of them out there of the once so-called social networking sites. What Twitter did, to use companies like Seesmic to grow and now killing them with their new API rules, is evil.

On my 3rd Twitter birthday: 7 reasons Twitter is central to my life

Ross Dawson

Earlier today I noticed it’s three years since my life on Twitter began. It now seems strange to me that I was such a late starter compared to many other connected folk, given that Twitter is now so central to my life. The primary reason I held off getting started on Twitter was that I felt that my blog was my primary space for content sharing, and I didn’t want to divide my limited spare attention across platforms. I now know that blogs and Twitter are highly complementary.

Of tittering, twittering & twitterpating

Dave Snowden

The collective noun for magpies is a tittering which is slightly less scary than their close relatives a murder of magpies. It was one of the comments I made in my closing session at IRHASS13. Now I have been at all five IRHASS events and for the last three my role has been to provide an end point to each day. It's not so much a summary, its more the role of being a constructive irritant, a curmudgeonly but entertaining end to the day; a role that I enjoy.
