Hot Twitter Habits: Part One

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the February 16th, 2009

Now that Twitter has hit the mainstream, let’s find out how the masses use their beloved service. In this first episode of two, we stop by the Twestival event to discover what some San Francisco tweetizens’ first Twitter posts were as well as how some use the service in more intimate of ways. You’ll need to watch to get the dirt. If you have no idea what any of this means, it’s time to come out of hibernation. The cave is a cold and lonely place. What was your first tweet? Tell us in the comments.

    I think my first tweet was sent from the stage at the Climate Theater. I was on stage with Beefy and MC Router as part of our Mediocre Tour.

    “The first tweet, is it always a meta tweet? because that is in fact, what I am doing. Shuffling Twits.”

    The over analysis and dry humor very much in character.

    Also, OCD.

    As with all services, my first tweet (http://twitter.com/edrabbit/status/7103851) was looking for something to replace the awful default profile icon.

    First twitter entry: “considering an HDTV projector”

  • http://twitter.com/vincentchavez Vincent Chavez

    my first tweet was that i was feeling kinda gassy

    I can't believe my first tweet was in 2006! http://twitter.com/tagami/status/74081

    my first tweet is pretty generic.

    “surfing the world wide web. should be going to sleep soon.
    4:00 AM Mar 30th, 2008 from web”

    woot UAT

    I refuse to believe that Kevin Rose is a virgin.
    I bet the Virgin America guy paid Rose to say that…

  • aliciarenee

    my first tweet:
    “fuming. de-fuming. scouring. working. still waiting for a call.
    4:22 PM Jan 16th, 2007 from web”

    but before/during/after? lol! (great query Irina)

    my 2nd tweet was re: a heavy-duty breakup, which I pissed & moped about for a goodly while…& since I haven't even tweeted making out-statuses, nevermind shagging nor dating for that matter.

  • http://geekentertainment.tv irinaslutsky

    i do like it i do!

  • http://geekentertainment.tv irinaslutsky

    dont do it sargent, since if you sign up for it and then dont use it its worse than having never signed up for it at all

  • http://richardshow.org richard and maureen

    In regard to the sex/twitter question:

    Richard: Before and after (there's about 10 minutes between the two tweets).
    Maureen: Not twittering much these days.
    Richard: I could stretch it out to 15 minutes, if I concentrate, really.

    p.s Maureen says “I was just wearing my red vloggies show shirt the other day. Made me think of Irina.”

    I first tweeted yesterday only, I was quite impressed to see people sharing their activities around, I am kind of doing the same now! Twitter rocks!

    nice looking pic, there are really nice (smart) looking girls on twitter that talk back if you make any sense.

    Isn't this something ironic. I used to think twitter was already a habit, now there are habits people can develop within their experience in twitter.

    Most women don't appreciate a guy like me. I am just not good at the part on the next level and most women are afraid to approach me, so I rarely even try to meet someone.
