Re: Analyzing Security Implications of URL Shortening Services

^ This.

There is no reason for obfuscated URL's as they normal truncate anyway.

It is a social media thing that will be around for a long time.

Thanks for the info, as it's quite interesting. I'm not a Twithead, and don't do social media. As per a previous thread, I'm a terrorist or other malcontent it seems.

Twitter outage caused by human error, domain briefly yanked
CNET has learned a Twitter outage that left millions of users fuming when they couldn't click on links came from an unlikely source: a "phishing complaint" sent to an Australian firm.

What about subscribing to RSS feeds? Or email lists? How about having a forum email you? Do those things make someone a twit?

You don't have to tweet to be on twitter. Use it like a 140 character RSS feed for things that are interesting. I follow a few comedians, sports networks, Wired and news mostly, but not a single person I actually know. I can scroll through the feed on my phone on the way to the bathroom, stay up to date and waste minimal time.

Twitter is a tool and like most tools, there are many ways to effectively use it.

Aren't you taking this a tad personally? BTW, I said Twithead.

Although there was a study that claimed 10% tweet while sitting on Twyfords and the French have a bathroom scale with will twit your weight to all your readers..most of us are much too busy catching up on the required reading.

But why do you care? You are a twithead no matter how you receive tweets. It is a profoundly stupid way to waste time IMO. I "waste" my time coming to this site. At least, I learn important things here about computer security, privacy issues, etc. Twitter consists of people with inflated egos who actually think others want to know when they had their last bowel movement. As for technical folks on Twitter, I prefer to wait until they are able to put their thoughts into a coherent blog or forum post, etc. not some dumb ass tweet that is artificially limited as to the length of the tweet.

Why do you care what wapu cares ? Can you do the fox-trot ?
Never seen any egos on twitter..takes more than 140 character to get your 'fix'.

I guess somehow you are out of touch with reality. You didn't know there are a lot of so called "celebrities" (read trashy types) on Twitter and that they all have gigantic egos? Gee.

As to the fox trot...I don't know if I can recall those steps. Used to be a whiz at ballroom dancing of all kinds...but sciatica takes its toll as I age.

I've always wondered why people listen to celebrities about anything (twitter or otherwise). However they do. Evidently famous people are intellectually superior to the rest of us. Then again maybe not.

No, they just have people tweet for them. It connects with the masses, and keeps those $$$ rolling in.

"OMG, they're a regular person too!" comes to mind. There are a few that do very good things though.

I'll have my people follow your people, and then we can share the 'other' people.
