Twitter presence for the #! Forum?

Would you consider it? Or maybe a live feed like the one LQ has? I think it might be fun even if it turns out to serve no practical purpose. Corenominal is on Twitter, thought i'd mention it just in case that tilts the decision in it's favor.  lol

Someone beat us to it...
https://twitter.com/hashtag/bunsenlabs

I even responded to one of those last night...
https://twitter.com/hhhorb/status/637114818315464705

That doesn't mean we couldn't start our own feed. I won't be doing it though, I wish social media and the people who use it would die so I can walk down the street without having to sidestep people walking while staring at their phones.

You should try riding a motorbike through heavy traffic with all the cagers* looking at their phones...

@HoaS, I was doing sandwich delivery on bicycle last fall and would routinely have to shout "Heads up!" at college kids who were skateboarding the wrong way up a one-way street at night while staring at their phones. Usually in groups of 3 or 4.

Re: Twitter presence for the #! Forum?

The hashtag doesn't mean anyone owns #bunsenlabs. Anyone can put any hashtag they like on their posts. It's just a sort of search helper I guess.
( @hhh if you had put #bunsenlabs in your reply it would have appeared here: https://twitter.com/hashtag/bunsenlabs )

I hope you don't really mean the people would die, but I understand where you're coming from.  Another pet peeve of mine is when people walk around while shopping talking on their phone.  Really?!  You're so important that you can't postpone that call until you're in a more private setting?  roll

It's a weird thing, but holding a phone in public creates a Cloak of Invisibility and a Cone of Silence around you.

Re: Twitter presence for the #! Forum?

I deleted the original and made a new one with #BunsenLabs but I still don't see it in the main feed. No biggie.
