Some people get annoyed when websites change their look, especially Facebook users. I’m not one of them. Just yesterday Twitter came out with a redesign. After using it for a couple of days now I have to say I like it. If you don’t use Twitter, and you like to keep up with current events (i.e., politics, sports, or entertainment), I would recommend giving it a try. As you can see from the screen print below, I tend to follow travel, sports, and tech news sites.
Using my various social media accounts, I’m struggling to figure out how to best link each of them together. Should I post to the blog, then have the blog update Twitter and Facebook? Or should I post to Twitter, then have Twitter update Facebook and the blog? Until recently (about an hour ago) I used Twitter to update both Facebook and the blog. I like this option, but have found a couple of limitations that bug me. First, as much as I like Twitter, I don’t like being limited to 140 characters. And second, when posting a picture to Twitter, the blog update only includes a link to the Twitter update/picture. The blog post doesn’t include the picture, which I would like it to do. Sometimes I even go back to include the picture in a blog post, as I did earlier today with my picture of the Jets cup. On the other side, I used to go in the opposite direction, but found I didn’t like the automated options, which limited the tweet to just the subject line. In the end I want the blog to be the primary location for all my information. I figure the blog is the one account that will last beyond Facebook and Twitter. So I’m going to go back to having the blog update Twitter, while also removing the Facebook update (I’m tired of Facebook). Anyway, I was wondering if the blogosphere has an opinion on the subject. Have at it!
A victory cup of my favorite drink… captain and coke for those of you not in the know. http://t.co/kixoher4
Experiencing a power outage here in Venice, CA. Rather than wait it out, I’ll just go to sleep and hope the power comes back by morning.
Coworker convinced me to work out very early this morning. Getting up at 5:10 was rough, but feels good now that we’re done.
Office building in Oakland is currently on lockdown, told to leave before 2 PM to ensure safety. http://t.co/HXjWXRst
UPDATE on November 2, 2011 @ 5 PM:
I’m finding this “We are the 99%” and “We are the 53%” to be funny/backwards/annoying. Earlier today we were asked to leave the client at approximately 2 PM to ensure our safety. Although there were a couple of rallies earlier in the day at 9 AM and 12 PM, the city is expecting a larger rally at 5 PM. During the day we could see people walking around the city with their signs reading “Make the Banks Pay!” I’m not really sure what they want the banks to pay for at this point. I’ve also heard a certain percentage of teachers in the Oakland area decided not to go to work today to attend the rally. Shouldn’t education be at the forefront, teaching kids to ensure they grow up to be working class citizens? Or, maybe if they’re smart enough, one of the 1% these folks are complaining about? Maybe I’m missing something, I don’t know. Either way, the team and I arrived safely at the hotel in Berekely, CA around 2:30 PM.
Deciding between Reno 911 and Wallflower for best costume tonight. Reno is pulling it off right now, he might be the winner.
Wow, what a game! Doesn’t get any better than a World Series Game 7. I’ll be watching.
Since I was having trouble sleeping figured I’d go out out for a late night drink. (@ Baja Cantina) http://t.co/fRueWeDZ
