I wouldn't mind the tweets so much if I didn't feel like I was reading one half of a conversation most of the time. It makes me feel left out. /selfish

Yeah, I know. The whole @ thing is weird. I don't do it much. But I also feel like I'm talking to no one and the entire internet all at the same time. Twitter is weird.

Well there is an importer that you can check the option to "Not import replies/@'s"

I wouldn't mind it weekly - I know I don't import mine because I have a lot of friends who post nothing but twitter posts on their journals, and that's annoying. Why bother writing if all you're going to do is import tweets?

You also tweet way more than me. :-P I just broke 20 this morning.

I am kind of addicted. :X I think that's why I don't export my tweets - I tweet so damn much it'd probably annoy the crap out of people.

You forgot a "whatever, it's your journal" option.

No, I didn't. :-P

Answer it this way: If I did it, would you read them?

I don't know about Heather, but *I* read almost everything that comes across my flist.

Also, I *almost* put "No" for the first question and "Daily" for the second, just to be an ass, but I decided not to.

Can you make friends groups on twitter?

What do you mean? I think you just broadcast out to the world.

Most of my "friends" are news channels... Boston, RI, Rochester. And a handful of famous people. Also about four 'real' friends. I would like to be able to view just my RL friends, or JUST news, or JUST famous people. Do you know if that's possible?

I have no clue. elyse probably knows... *goes to poke her*

I don't think so. That's one of the reasons I don't really follow many non-real people on Twitter - it might be worth it in your case to create an account just for following news accounts, and keeping the most important ones on your "main".

It'd be a great suggestion, though - maybe you should write it into the Twitter people!

Thanks! I didn't think there was a way, but it didn't make sense that there wouldn't be so I thought maybe I was missing something.

No you can't. My twitter is Real Life Friends/LJ Friends/Celebrities/News LOL. It gets pretty busy....You can only "lock" them like "Friends Only" on LJ.

Any good celebrities?

You didn't ask me, but... Hanson! Also MC Hammer, Ellen, Lance Armstrong and I added some other that don't actually use it.

I stopped mine & made my tweets locked. So, I actually think that is what stopped them. But anyway, I didn't want to annoy people. I had someone on my FL that did them constantly and also shipped them to Facebook. It was a headache.

I didn't know you had a twitter. I am Kathy517 on there.

Yup, I joined on March 29 and I've only tweeted 20ish times. I'm tenthz, of course. :) I wasn't going to join because I can't get to the site from work, but then Jim Gaffigan was going to tweet live during his special, so I wanted to check that out. I like following famous peoples.

If there was a way to have a twitter filter, I'd be all for it.

Tweets crossposted to LJ are a huge pet peeve of mine. Unless they're updated in real time they're outdated, and they discourage conversation.

And this is why I made a poll before just doing it! Seems that no one likes them. :) I'll have to look into that filter idea.

Sorry but twitter is annoying to anyone who has to read it...

Twitter makes me feel old and unsavvy because I know next to nothing about it.
