Great Cause + Bad Twitter Etiquette

By in Main

I don’t write a lot about internet etiquette anymore (excluding the occasional snarky comment on Twitter) because I’ve learned to simply eliminate offenders from my viewpoint and move on to people are doing it better and sharing content in which I’m willing to invest time. I choose to only see @replies on Twitter that are [...]

11. Thou Shalt Judge Non-Specific Believers?

By in Main

So… last night I was relaxing at a cookout and I popped on to Twitter on my iPhone. I stumbled upon this Twitter and it’s really been bugging me since: I just want to clarify something here, which is that it sounds to this person (important distinction not made by said person) like I’m afraid [...]

An update on Healthy Brandice

By in Main

I haven’t talked much lately about my new resolve to be healthier, but it’s been going really well. I think that I’m learning to pick my battles, eat in healthier portions, and I’m still struggling to make myself work out every day. I’ve been off track with the exercise ever since getting the flu/cold that [...]

Netiquette massive fail by @FreshFocus

By in Main

That’s right. I’m doing an outright exposure of one particular Twitter user who incurred my wrath this evening with this tweet: I’m sorry, but does this comment really have a place in conversation after the age of twelve if a correct answer is given to a publicly posted question? Not to mention, the person behaving [...]

What I got from Podcamp Pittsburgh

By in Main, Pictures

I attended Podcamp Pittsburgh 3 last weekend, and it was a pretty great experience. It was a long weekend, and I had intended to try out live blogging, but discovered that live blogging is incredibly tedious for the person doing the live blogging (in my humble and ever-correct opinion), so I ditched it after the [...]

Internetiquette – Twitter Masturbation

By in Main

I mentioned in my post about my Twitter rules that I have a low tolerance for Twitter masturbation (continually growing lower, I’m very close to just exclusively moving to Brightkite), but I realized that I haven’t really explained what it is, why it’s annoying as hell, or given examples of the offense in action. Here’s [...]

You did NOT even follow-spam me and then protect your Twitters to try and ENTICE me into following you back so that I show up as one of your followers and will then see that you are a spammer.

Twitter Spanking

By in Main

New policy instituted by myself, on behalf of anyone who’s tired of being followed by the following (henceforth named “follow-spammer”): Some loser who’s following 43,476 people and has 53 followers in a desperate attempt to be popular or get people to look at [insert something stupid here]. Someone who repeatedly unfollows and refollows you over [...]

Quick Tips – Favorites, Apps, Sharing, Friends, and Hiding

By in Main

Some quick tips from Internetiquette for the week: 1. Twitter Favorites – A lot of people commented recently that they don’t know what Twitter favorites are for and don’t use them. I use them frequently, for two reasons: First, to remember hilarious, over the top, absolute rockstar tweets, and second, to favorite tweets on my [...]

My Twitter Rules

By in Main

I am inspired to a do a write-up about my criteria for having someone on the list of people I follow on Twitter, because it’s important for me to be able to refer a person to my policy if they want to know why I don’t follow them (or do). Also, maybe it will help [...]

Zuckerberg Interview SXSW Drama

By in Main, Videos

For those of you who care and want to read more, Robert Scoble has the best write-up of the whole Zuckerberg/Lacy drama at SXSW, with links to everyone else’s coverage. I personally think that it was not a great interview, but not worthy of the crucifixion by the audience that Lacy endured toward the end. [...]
