God it's been ages since I posted on here. Since I'm pretty slow to catch on to pop culture, I just discovered Twitter. Yeah yeah, spare me the OMFG where have you been living diatribe, hehe... Anyways I was wondering if any of you guys had a Twitter account?

I guess that question makes me sound like a n00b. I'm pretty content with my n00bishness, yeah I think I can handle that. =)

Anyways I just shamelessly plugged NAO on Twitter. Maybe now there server will get overloaded with tons of traffic, haha.. Hopefully it'll draw in some nice people.

And how did you achieve this? More exactly, which part of NAO do you import to Twitter?

Re: Twitter

I plugged the NAO url on my Twitter account, hehe. As in I said "OMG go check out netalive.org, it's like super cool, blah blah...".

Twitter is like a micro-blog where people basically spout off with short 1 or 2 sentences at a time. It's just something to pass the time and the investment is shorter than a real blog and the breadth of the postings is considerably less. It's fun.

Re: Twitter

Yeah, I know. I dont follow the hype. And its getting on my nerves, too. Btw, its being based on sending SMSes to a givne phone number and displaying it on the web.

Lets see if some microblogger stumble over NAO. But Id rather think not so .. More than 140 chars seem to be too much for folks like this ^^

Re: Twitter

Well, if you like the hype - i dont. Every second blog is slapping that bloody twitterific into your face, thus getting on my nerves.

That's similar to the overuse of that "web 2.0"-style, with many gradients, shiny buttons, logos with reflections and missing vocals (like in flickR, dopplR etc.). It'll be dead in 2-3 years, anyway (at least the LOOK; about the apps I doubt).

Re: Twitter

I don't disagree that it's a fad and hyped but it's really just a big game. I thought maybe it'd be cool to see if anyone here had twitter accounts because it seems a little less "formal". After all sometimes it's fun to leave the brains behind and just have fun.

I think we should all give ginster a big round of appaulse for the right injection of negativity to kill the thread. Thanks a bunch. I thought NAO was all about people with brains?

Loathing tends to increase with intelligence, because everything becomes so serious, so full of meaning. Only the nihilists seem able to be intelligent and yet take nothing seriously. If it's all meaningless anyway, might as well make it a party.

Do they blind strive daily to believe in a world they cannot see?

Contrary seen, a party's not always meaningless. Maybe at worst, but at its best, you gain a lot of it - even if it's "just" joy ;)

Just found this thread. I've heard about twitter. And several others of the same type. I do have a myspace, but I have pretty much abandoned it because it was over flowing with surface glitter.

I thought it would be fun, but it wasn't. It was just another in a growing list of social sites.
I'm not a huge social gathering type person so the idea of texting some gossipy drama really doesn't do alot for me.

One of the things I love best about this site is that this place is at least for me a fine and private place.
I figure the people that find this place have had enough of the surface stuff and are looking for more.

I like reading intellegent thought, completely written out words.
All the stuff with letters that mean words takes away something from communication.
I guess I'm not ready to trade in my ablity to write words out for a few letters. Feels like a cheap trade somehow.

There's other things that bother me about thoes social sites. It's all the graphics that people paste all over the place.
It's so in the face that it's annoying.
I know they sparkle and are shiny, but after seeing that stuff all over it gets really old, really fast.

So I guess that makes me a wet blanket too.

Twitter is kinda different and much simpler. I was thinking the same thing as you though about Facebook. All the stupid glitter and noise. It's completely annoying. Yeah and the social sites are all fluff, no real intelligent thought. Well perhaps there are some needles in the haystack but you hit the nail right on the head when you said that NAO was more a private gathering where people come that have pretty much abandoned the social fluff for more intellectual musings. I agree with you 110%!
