Re: Analyzing Security Implications of URL Shortening Services

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.

FB (and similar) have the same problem.

Why do you care what wapu cares ? Can you do the fox-trot ?

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.

LOL. In that case I'll have "my people" follow "their people's" tweets

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