Linking to Twitter

August 11th, 2016 · Comments Off on Linking to Twitter · Technology

This is a bit of a test. I recently dumped Facebook and may well go back to writing more on here, so I thought I would look into a WordPress plugin to cross-publish posts to Twitter. I used to have that ages ago but when it stopped working after something somewhere changed I just dropped […]

Council twits

July 6th, 2012 · 6 Comments · Politics, Technology

I like to keep an eye on the blog of our friend and one-man political soap opera, James Doyle. The soap opera comment is because of the complicated nature of his political allegiances. He was a Lib Dem but quit the party after the general election (at which he was a Lib Dem candidate). He […]

False alarm

October 17th, 2010 · Comments Off on False alarm · Life

I thought for a brief moment that I had made it.  Got a tweet from somebody whose name I didn’t recognise, looked at their profile and saw they they follow 7 people: Stephen Fry Dave Gorman Sarah Millican Chris Addison Doug Naylor Bill Bailey Me Then realised that their real name, as opposed to Twitter […]

Will Britain get its ‘Perot moment’ tomorrow night?

May 5th, 2010 · Comments Off on Will Britain get its ‘Perot moment’ tomorrow night? · Politics, Technology

I think it was back in 1996 that  I was watching the US election results on TV and early in the evening the amazing news came in that one state had gone to Ross Perot.  The studio pundits were practically exploding and saying how this might affect the outcome and how the face of American […]

Public relations fail

February 15th, 2010 · 10 Comments · Life

I’m no expert in PR, but even I can see that upsetting a customer who has 1.64 million followers on Twitter (many of them fanatical)  is going to stretch the old saying that there is no such thing as bad publicity to breaking point.  ((Top tip: try quoting that saying to the Toyota PR department […]

The dark side of Doctor Who?

November 21st, 2009 · Comments Off on The dark side of Doctor Who? · Life

I saw this on Monday on the Guardian’s twitter feed, totally misread it and then went to all the trouble of making a screen capture and forgot to do anything with it.  Here it is, better late than never…

Test post

July 31st, 2009 · Comments Off on Test post · Technology

I am playing around with some plugins.   What should happen when I publish this is that it will also get posted as a tweet. You can set it up to do this with all posts but while I am playing with it I have set it to only operate on posts within a specific new […]

To tweet or not to tweet?

July 29th, 2009 · 3 Comments · Technology

The new phone has all sorts of features.  Most of them are defined by initials, some of which I understand but many I don’t.  It has wi-fi, GPS, 3G, DLNA, UMTS, HSUPA and HSDP for a start.  For all I know it has LOL and NSFW too.  One thing I do know is that the […]

Twitter ye not!

June 11th, 2009 · Comments Off on Twitter ye not! · Politics, Technology

Today I logged into Twitter for the first time.  I have avoided it thus far because I can’t really see the appeal.  It looks like the sort of thing that is only going to be worthwhile if it is used on a mobile – and I don’t use my mobile for internet use at all.  […]
