Wow. Today was BORING.

The most interesting thing that happened today, from my point of view? Twitter decided to go all harvest blood ritual on accounts that steal other people’s Tweets.  I mean, don’t get me wrong: that’s the kind of rectification of bitter ash that makes me get out the popcorn, but half of you folks kind of loathe Twitter on general principles and you’re probably right to do so.  Also, it’s kind of inside-baseball.

On the bright side, I kind of like ‘rectification of bitter ash.’ Has a sort of Halloween-like sound to it. Old-school Halloween, when you didn’t want to open the door when something started knocking on it. I should use it in something.

And Twitter no longer treats my site as spam. Thank you!

I do not know, specifically, what caused them to reverse it. Then again, I don’t know what caused Twitter to mislabel my site as spam in the first place, although I was certainly ready to hazard a guess. But it has been resolved, to my satisfaction; so let us speak no more of this matter.

No, really. One of the dumbest things that people do on the Internet is not leaving well enough alone when they’ve won something. Problem discovered, problem solved, now it’s time for a respectful ‘thank you’ and a brisk disengagement from the fray.

Hey, has anybody had any problems with bad ads?

Twitter seems to think that this site is now dangerous.

Twitter announces that it is experimenting with 280 character Tweets.

I think that this is a perfectly acceptable observation…

Hey, warning for those of you still using Twitter…

…they’re trying to vet what you see again.  Go to mentions; click ‘Settings.’  See if that, under Advanced, the ‘Quality Filter’ box is checked.  If it is (mine was), congratulations: Twitter has decided that it can guess what replies you want to see! (more…)

Looks like Twitter has decided that people without cell phones aren’t important.

Take a gander at the new muting functions below.

Well, that was fun.

Spent far too much of the day dealing with my wife’s car’s sudden decision to have bad brakes. Everybody’s fine, she’s home now, no property destruction or anything, but I was pretty much not doing anything more strenuous than Twitter while it was going on. So it goes.

Some days I really do wonder whether President Barack Obama is paying attention.
