I read this story and to see if I was affected I logged into Twitter where I saw a tweet about a local festival so I clicked over to the weather to see if it was warm enough to go and I saw a mention of today being Groundhog day so I opened a news page to see if he had seen his shadow and he had so I opened IM to message my friend where I saw it was another friend's birthday so I opened Facebook to send him a message and a friend had just posted a picture from South America so I commented on that...

maybe your password to twitter's the same password as that to your bank. mainly the reason, looking to elevate privs elsewhere.

I'm more tired of hearing about Twitter than Honey Boo Boo and my gonorrhea college transcripts combined.

No twitter, no myspace, no FB.

Not because I think I'm above them, just that I'm asocial.

I like to hide in my cave.

Is this the thread where everyone insults twitter users in forgettable comments of less than 140 characters?
 
2013-02-02 11:33:15 AM
Not me subby, I'm pretty sure there are tons of people who are enthralled by my daily activities, whereabouts, feelings on every subject, and every other non-witty thing I needlessly post no matter how farking trivial and no matter how farking utterly uninteresting I am.  I am not just a boring zilch with fark all to say - I matter!!  That's why I am on twitter!!

I don't insult Twitter users, I'm just sick of hearing about it all the time And that "tweet" is now a verb. I insult people who send me 10 pictures of their farking kids per day on Facebook and I have to be email-informed of it each time. I used Facebook once to stalk look up an old flame and I'm forever doomed.

In the not-too-distant future, Twitter will just be another footnote in the history of media.
Like ICQ or Compuserve.

Of course, it will be replaced with something equally as inane.
 
2013-02-02 11:41:40 AM
I'm okay here because I've got a Twatter account.

I posted a picture of my new synth on Facebook yesterday with the title "my new baby", then threatened everyone by saying I will post 387 more pictures of it, all with the exact same expression.
 
2013-02-02 11:55:19 AM
I was one notified, too, yesterday at 4pm.  Automatically my password had been dumped.
So I reset my password.
Then recieved another notice at 7pm, telling me my password had been dumped.
So I reset my password, again.
Then recieved another notice at 8pm, telling me my password had been dumped.
So I reset my password, again.
This morning?  Again another?

I'm done.  If you get a tweet from @BartSimpson, it from the hackers.

And this kids, is why you use single purpose email addresses to sign up for things.  If it gets compromised, you toss it and get another one.

Plus it makes your information far less valuable when sold.

I love Twitter.  It's fun.  I don't take it seriously, and I don't Instagram anything because I don't have an iPhone.  Or any kind of smartphone.  Chuck D from Public Enemy and DMC from Run DMC follow me, which is pretty farking cool.

Hey grandpa, remind me to show you how easy it is to turn off email notifications next time I visit you in the old folks home.

Also, tweet has always been a verb

Everything I do for a living is dependent on technology developed in the last 24 months (that's opening me to a lot, I realize). Just because something is new and is also lame doesn't mean the person pointing out it lameness is a technophobe.

I tried it and the only interesting picture was Heidi Klum starting the trend of bodyscape pictures on twitter.

Technically, they didn't even get passwords. They got salted & bcrypted hashes, which are useless as long as you didn't use a single dictionary word as your password, and the resets are just Twitter being paranoid, because inevitably some people did. Plus, what do email addresses have to do with this?

My email address is more valuable than my password.  One is easy to change, the other, not so much.
