Your tweet was over 140 characters. You’ll have to be more clever.

super long tweet

Remember back in the day when someone figured out that DMs weren’t restricted to 140 characters? That was cool. We got so crazy making long DMs and revealing the *secret* to people. We were so crazy back then.

Remember when lists were introduced? Man, that was going to eliminate some clutter. Arrange people by topics, go check out a list, get smart on a topic. That never happened, I’m still dumb on gardening.

Remember twitvid? During a summer vacation to Chicago, I thought that shit was going to be the future. I still like it, but nobody else does. Just like soccer.


Remember when you first met someone from twitter IRL? Hey kids, daddy’s going to meet the lady from twitter at a hotel bar. When mom gets home, try to make it sound less creepy. @BarbaraNixon you were my first! I’ll always remember.

Remember when you were the only one at work on twitter? You’d spend all day tweeting about non-work stuff. Personally, I never took part in that. Thought it was morally wrong.

Remember when Obama tweeted… then didn’t tweet… then did again? Guess it goes in four year cycles. Strange. Thanks for connecting with us Mr. President!

Remember those “Brittany Fucked” SPAM accounts? That was my first celebrity experience on twitter, I apologize if I boasted each time one followed. It made me feel special.

Remember when your wife used to bitch and moan because you were on twitter all fucking night and day? [points to garage] #silence

Remember summize? I bet they look back and wish they asked for more money.

Remember when you figured out how hashtags worked. #remembertwitter

    Yeah, I remember all that stuff. And then I remember the time Chris Brogan unfollowed me on Twitter … then followed me back.

    Wait. What?

      Things evolve. I feel sorry for the twitter famous, they can’t experience twitter like we do. Their stream is so full of people, it’s like going to a public beach on Labor Day. I think Brogan got tired of the crowd, bought an island, and is watching the waves… for the first time.

      I also bet celebrities and the twitter famous have accounts that are more incognito, more personal, more real. Hidden from the public eye.

      For a brief moment in time, John Pederson and I were mildly twitter famous… AND IT SUCKED. Six eyes (John wears glasses) on one account, and we still couldn’t follow the stream. Even though messages/thoughts/ideas were directed to us, we were unable to see them… to respond… to be a part of the conversation. It was the exact opposite of what I’d known, cultivated, cherished.

      Twitter gives us a hammer. Great for a simple project, but it doesn’t scale. Brogan was given a hammer, then told to build a town.

    I feel like Twitter will continue to be powerful *because* of the crowds — and not because of single tweets. Stuff bubbles to the top and makes me pay attention only if enough people are making noise about it. It curates itself if you’re following the right people. I favor the crowds making those decisions instead of the platform… Facebook

    But, you’re right – I can’t imagine how the most famous even begin to fight through the noise and find a way to genuinely interact with their followers. I was shocked when I saw a class at Emerson get the attention of @Ochocinco (and actually met him for an after-class lesson on social media) — it took weeks of attempts and strategies.

      I guess that’s cool for news, but I remember when I only followed ~50 people and built connections with them. Today, they’re the equivalent of best friends from grade school. I love them, but we’re in high school now, the school is bigger, lots more people crowding the halls.

      I miss the intimacy, and the newness of my first year on twitter. We were learning together. Connecting, growing, sharing, feeling. Shit was real, yo!

    Most computer users print black and white documents versus printing full color pictures, so it is not a serious problem.
    Not only does it help you search for and find that hidden campsite in the woods and the quiet stream in the mountains where
    there are holiday cabins, but it also helps you find that friend you lost
    touch with who now works in a refugee camp in a little known third country
    in Africa. Refferencement naturel or organic and natural SEO may
    also help your organization and conserve you income that you simply spend
    on paid out adverts.

    Foods from the grocery store might last you all month, whereas the organic versions
    of those same foods at the health food store may only last you half the month.
    Power outlets make sure that you are getting problem free experience even with your old laptops
    because they may turn dark without power outlets. It was
    well known that oats were grown, stored, milled and packaged with wheat products are were
    typically very contaminated with gluten.

    That was excellent. I reveal to my lady everyday we need to make this
    happen. Anytime I actually speak about fuckbook, I receive a hit inside shoulder.

    Why should I avoid my desires?

    If perhaps there was clearly ever a period
    to become a great deal more bold while in the bedroom,
    these days it is. Things are really slightly better now.
