To tweet or not to tweet?

July 29th, 2009 · Posted by Skuds in Technology · 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 contract it is on gives me 500 texts per month, which is about 450 more that I have ever sent in a month.

I still can’t understand how the younger generation in this house consider that 500 texts a month is not enough, so I am thinking I might use some of my texts to tweet on twitter.  I think that means I will then be a twat.  I already have an acocunt, set up so I could follow realnickgriffin, and I think I have got my mobile pointing at it.  For some reason I already have 5 followers, even though I have been resolutely in read-only mode and never posted anything.

    You’d be agreeing with David Cameron there…

    Odd thing is that we were listening to that interview on the way into work this morning.

    (By the way, I hope that you having a Twitter ‘acocunt’ is just a typo….)

    As it happens, I really think that the past participle for “tweet” should be “twat” – even if only for the third person plural.

    Mind you, when SCSI first came out and was a novelty I thought that it woiuld end up being pronounced “Secsi” and not “scuzzy”

    And yes… it was a typo. Tired fingers and brain, but it has a certain ring to it
