Twitter is fan-fucking-tastic with keeping up to date with breaking events. It can mean the place is a hype machine (try following the discussion around big signings in the English Premier League, for instance), but it means that by the time the papers have posted about some event, the news has already bounced around Twitter for hours.

And this was true when we were having the "is twitter useful?" discussion a few years back, too: I am able to follow events in real time when those events are mis- or underreported (various Occupy stuff) or not reported on at all (Iranian protests in 2009 and 2011), from sources that are, somewhat ironically, much richer than available "reliable" news sources.

I'm not sure how much good this will do, but I like the idea of beaming anti-Oil tweets on world landmarks.

http://endfossilfuelsubsidies.org/twitterstorm/

Quote
We know that world leaders aren't likely to achieve a comprehensive climate breakthrough in Rio -- we aren't expecting new binding rules that would slow the carbon emissions that are heating up our planet. But our governments could at least stop sending nearly a trillion dollars a year to the fossil fuel industry. If they did, it would help weaken the coal and oil and gas tycoons, and give renewable energy a fighting chance.

Ending fossil fuel subsidies would also stop wasting our money. Why on earth should taxpayers subsidize the richest industry on earth? Its bad enough they wreck the planet, without us paying them a performance bonus for doing it.

So heres the plan: were going to kick up a Twitter Storm. We need you to help create this storm by sending a message with the hashtag #EndFossilFuelSubsidies. Well be beaming your messages on famous landmarks in cities around the world, and a young team of climate activists will be on the ground in Rio to make sure world leaders hear us loud and clear.

I have a fake band (she says "invisible band") with my friend Hilary. Basically an excuse to make twitterjokes. There's a very slim possibility that we will someday record actual music. @AUTO_MONO

I had a well-received tweet about white people the other day that got retweeted a bunch, but apparently it blew straight the fuck up on tumblr, where someone screencapped it and then thousands of people reblogged it.  I always forget that there are even thousands of people on tumblr.

it was this stupid twin peaks/self deprecation joke that did well for me after a few people with tons of followers RT'd it.

interactions are like crack. i love 'em interactions. i need 'em interactions.

Ah ha ha that's great!  It reminds me a bit of the spate of "LADIES -- " tweets that were going around a little while back.  I think my favorite was "LADIES -- Call me high-concept tumblr blog 'cause you love me now but you'll be real embarrassed to see me in Barnes And Noble in six months"
