    I know it’s slightly off-topic, but I’d love to keep up with more Dwarfers. Are any of you on Twitter? I think it would be great to have a directory of Twitter accounts if others here use it.

    If you’d like to follow me, I’m at https://twitter.com/davidrussell

    What’s Twitter?

    If livejournal is about knowing what a person is doing in their life, twitter is knowing what they had for breakfast. Three minutes ago.

    Nah, I’m not a fan of Twitter at all. What’s wrong with a Facebook status update?

    >What?s wrong with a Facebook status update?

    You can’t update by text.
    You can’t read other people’s updates by text.
    You can’t syndicate your Facebook status to your blog.
    Facebook’s summary page doesn’t actually include *everyone’s* updates, just a random selection, so it’s less well-suited to microblogging.

    Both have their uses, they’re not really trying to do the same thing. Twitter is really sort of halfway between a Facebook entry and a blog post.

    And reply to personal mails by txt. I do agree though, that these sites can get a little too invasive at times.

    #83589

    Yes you can.

    Only if you want to give a third-party app access to your account details, from the looks of it. Unless I’m wrong (or unless they’re doing a really bad job of publicising it), there’s no official way for UK users to update by SMS.

    Not to be contrary, but if this is something you’re interested in, I’m pretty sure I saw that Ben Paddon had managed to syndicate his Facebook status. No idea how easy it is to do, but it’s at least possible if that’s something you’d want to make use of.

    You can recive all Facebook updates only on O2 in the UK. The other mobile networks don’t seem to be bothered.

    Indeed. I was almost Simon. (That sounds weird. You can tell the kind of programmes I watch as a freaky possession scenario just popped into my head…)

    I’m third under my name! (Chris Mardle.) It was a fairly recent post in retaliation to that ‘The Stage TV Today’ article that was reported some while back.
    http://blogs.thestage.co.uk/mt/mt-search.cgi?blog_id=3&tag=Chris%20Barrie&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=3

    The next is me on facebook (which I don’t use all that often) the next me on a 2000 AD forum promoting Red Dwarf specials…
    I got mixed responses for that one. Some liked. Some were, “I liked it a the time but, it had it’s day.” One bloke likened it to the return of smallpox. That last one still niggles. His arrogant attitude not the smallpox.

    Oh, the first two involves someone of my namesake who is a Wimbledon Player apparently. Link doesn’t come up with much though.

    The existence of this fellow troubles me grately : http://www.facebook.com/people/Sebastian-Patrick/5216501

    There’s not much of me under a search for “Sebastian Patrick”, but that’s because I almost exclusively use “Seb”. All my published writing is as “Seb”, so that’s basically become my official public name. Although stupidly, I’ve put “Sebastian” on the script extracts that are on my website. I should change those versions.

    But yeah, google search Seb Patrick and the only thing that interferes with stuff about ME is a Myspace band whose members are called… Seb and Patrick.

    And again, with Carpool:

    Erm, first result:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=robert+llewellyn+carpool&btnG=Search

    In fact, this reminds me of a routine David Mitchell did on a Brooker radio pilot I went to the other day. It was all about how the internet ruins fun, and gave an example of how instead of sitting in a pub having a discussion about what names the Wombles had, you’d just Google it, and then SIT THERE IN SILENCE for the rest of the night.

    It was vaguely amusing, sure – but it also highlights the issue here. There are more interesting things to talk about to do with the Wombles than what their fucking names are. Stuff about how the show made you *feel*, for instance. Stuff with depth, rather than surface trivia. If Mitchell was trying to make a point – and I admit he might not have been, but it felt like he was – then he failed.

    Likewise, there are more interesting things to ask Robert Llewellyn than what the fuck Carpool actually is. Twitter gives you access to people you perhaps wouldn’t otherwise have access to – a chance to ask them questions they’ve never been asked before. Why waste that access by asking something a quick Google search will answer faster, and better?

    Google doesn’t kill conversations. It helps you have better ones.
