@desperatenoise

I basically use it as a thought organizer and a mini-record-reviewer. Also shameless plug station.

Also fuck yeah at this thread, I now have a bunch of awesome people to follow. Which is magically not creepy in this new and strange world.

@jaubertmoniker

Twitter is my outlet for stupid shit from my brainpan.

It's certainly been quite useful for mine. As I mentioned above, a couple of the foremost writers in ELT are there, plus quite a few other teachers and organisations sharing resources and suchlike.

I've been actively campaigning against our company using Twitter. Most of our target audience is old people. Come on.

I must say, it's really pleasant whenever pollo and coldforge tweet back and forth for a few in a row; the opposite tints of the photos and angles of their heads make it look like some kind of vaudeville routine.

Also, anyone who's not following LTPJ's JacobEvans (http://twitter.com/vumpire) needs to start immediately.

I realized yesterday that I hadn't posted my most compelling argument in the "Is twitter useful?" thread.  Two internet friends had a baby earlier this year, and when she was born, her father told the world via Twitter (since he was nowhere near a computer).

They had registered isthebabyhereyet.com, which, predictably, said NO in huge letters.  After the Twitter announcement I congratulated them and, in jest, prodded them to update their website.  The new father sent me a direct message through Twitter with the credentials for the site and told me to go for it.

So, despite that I was 3,000 miles away from the family and had never met them in person, I was able to change the site from NO to YES along with a short message welcoming the new baby, minutes after she was born.  Totally fucking awesome.
