I heard this line today. They were talking about social media and all of the check-ins and status updates that we post. They were talking about being able to go back in time and check out tweets and check-ins from … Continue reading
I heard someone talk about this idea. He had started a hashtag – mainly as a snarky remark – and a million tweets later, he realized that he had tapped into something deeper than he had originally intended. We long … Continue reading
Have you ever heard anyone complain about the seemingly mindless posting about what one eats or what one is doing? Explicitly, it might seem innocuous and boring to share about sandwiches and the beverage choice of the moment. Implicitly, it … Continue reading
This is when we tell our friends over tweets, status updates, and texts that we are about to embark on some momentous occasion. The responses are typically prayers and words of encouragement. That’s the world we live in now. We … Continue reading
I read some tweets today that totally sounded like someone’s inner monologue, and when I asked about it, they affirmed the fact that they do indeed use Twitter to project their inner monologue. It seems like lots of tweets look … Continue reading
So for World AIDS Day – tons of celebrities are going dark or they’re going to be digitally dead. They’re trying to raise a million bucks for World AIDS Day. No matter how cool it is that they’re trying to … Continue reading
OC WordCamp was yesterday. This was the first WordCamp that I’ve ever been to. I learned so much about WordPress and thoroughly had great time. At times, I was both lost and intrigued. I picked up vocabulary and there were more acronyms used than I know. There were times when the speakers used acronyms to describethe acronym that they just used. I knew the stuff well enough to follow along.
The developer and designer community was super interesting. It was my first conference where the Twitter ticker tape of the event was constantly moving.
I found myself watching behavior translated into tweets. I was watched the keynote presenter listen to the speakers and her physical reactions were tweeted. These days, when you give a presentation, the reactions are live and immediate.
Tweets represent emotions, ideas, attitudes, and people.
Jesus was pretty amazing in building relationships and creating community. He could gather a crowd of people that wanted to sit at his feet and hear what he had to say. Jesus had important things to say. He gave sermons at the mount and spoke to the winds and the waves. That would have be so interesting to see his tweets. Can you just see it?
“Just turned water into wine – made it better than the stuff that they served first.”
“Just talked to a Samaritan woman – asked her about living water.”
“Pretty much just turned over every table at the temple – what were they thinking.”
“I’m not to popular with the Pharisees and the Sadducees – but I still care about them.”
What do you think he would have tweeted? Share some with me. Leave a comment of what Jesus would have tweeted. Do you think Jesus would have used foursquare? He would have definitely been a Mac.
That’s right. Our earthquake yesterday was the biggest in the past 18 years. There has been so many aftershocks with one just happening around 6:30ish this morning (about 38 minutes ago). It was a 7. 2 magnitude earthquake. The USGS was saying that an earthquake of that magnitude had to have activity along the fault like at around 50 miles wide.
I am watching the news as I type this and the next segment is dedicated to celeb’s tweets during the earthquake. Celebrity tweets are now news worthy. No offense to the celebs that they’re are going to show, but we’re so much about it that their tweets are news.
I am watching The Oscars – in like 2 hours without any commercial interruptions. It’ll be so nice to just fly thru the commercials. I have been conditioned. I have been dvr – conditioned. I can’t watch it live because it almost bothers me – commercials bother me. I can’t help it. So I will be 2 hours behind on all the tweets – not that I’m going to watch Twitter as the Oscars go on, but almost all events have a twitter stream that you can watch. Of course, I have to wait 2 hours to see if they are showing anyone’s tweets.
In other news – I called this post The Oscars, but this post has nothing to do with the Oscars. It has to do with me not liking commercials.
Did you see how many tweets were about the 10 billionth tweet. It was quite interesting to see the tweets of people watching tweets. How crazy is that – that we would watch the tweets as entertainment. I mean, it is a pretty interesting idea, but how crazy is that – people watching tweets – then tweeting to other tweeps about watching tweets. Oh well. That’s the world of tweets. Over 10 billion of them.
I was watching the SAG awards last night. They were sitting at the red carpet interviewing celebrities, and it’s so fascinating to me that they have random tweets of all sorts of people (typically celebs) on the tickertape at the bottom of the screen. It’s not the first time I’ve seen it, but it’s so interesting that they have incorporated tweets into the program/show.
I personally think it makes for a more interesting show. I found myself only reading the tweets.
It’s so easy to tweet. It’s so easy to get your ideas out there. It’s so easy to be heard.
