Twitter is source of some frustration to those enamored of sesquipedalianism and even approximately correct grammar. One soon finds 1self abbreving w/o oblig punc just 2 mk it fit.

Imagine how I dread Facebook.

John said...

Well, not having any professional obligations to such an end, I have, thus far, successfully avoided facebook. I can sympathise, but I don't think I can quite imagine.

This is the definitive proof of Twitter fail.

I'm not sure what the definitive proof of Facebook fail would be. Failbook?

I refuse to tweet without either a script doing most of the work or a clicky fullsize keyboard.

That being said, I had to learn the twitter when I was writing a script to turn tweets into spoken words.

RT = retweet, repeat someone else's tweet
FF = follow friday, where one person would note other twitter feeds that should be followed.

#wontfly should go into the text to speech engine as "hash tag won't fly"

I hope that's not too basic for you.

And that is why I pretty much ignore that webpage except to repost my weblog's headlines and links :).

Rest easy. It pays.

There are others older and less sophisticated. Enjoy!

Think Strunk - you will rule the venue.

It's a stupid stupid stupid 8th Grade thing.
It's AOL for the noobs.
It pays nothing.
