Gaming, Technology, Social Media, and Fun
In: geek14 May 2008
What if we decided to just stop using Twitter one day, and move over to FriendFeed for our status updates, link posting, and whatever else we use Twitter for? I jokingly responded that we’d have many chances to try it since Twitter seems to go down fairly regularly. Today, Twitter was down for a few hours and FriendFeed was on fire due to all the Twitter refugees. So then, I decided to post the following:
Let’s have a Twitter boycott day! To my (pleasant) surprise, quite a few people responded and thanks to Susan Beebe, we now have the name “Twit-out”
So on May 21, 2008, we ask that you close your Twitter clients, disable your Twitter Google Talk, add a loopback entry for twitter.com in your host file, tie a string around your finger, and REBUKE the name of Twitter on May 21!! So what to do instead of Twitter? Give FriendFeed a try! C’mon, it’ll be fun and you’ll be surprised as to how much fun there is to be had over at FriendFeed. Create an account today and join the discussion.
