When I first got on twitter I was told, quite strenuously, by a friend that I shouldn't @ any of the celebrities because it was a wasted effort. It was basically along the lines that they're on a loftier perch tham me and there was no chance they'd ever look down from on high to acknowledge my presence.



Clearly I didn't listen.

Okay, we all know I've got a twitter account with the same name as this journal. I barely use @EvilGrins as more than a marker for my other online activities, which when the LJ/Twitter app is working correctly, posts back here so people can see what I like to think is interesting stuff. I rarely directly tweet to it, occasionally to interact with those twits it follows, because not much of any real interest has been happening in my personal life of late.

No big shocker there.

However, I'm extremely active in twitter's RPG community. I've got several sockpuppets there and run a little newspaper called @the_daily_rag, which is fairly popular among the roleplayers and normal folks. I report both real world news that catches my eye but it's mostly a newspaper of the doings and going·ons of the roleplay community. For the most part the latter makes me giggle my ass off...

...but that's not to say there's some bad stuff now and again.

There's this idiot, who from my best sources is a junior-high/highschool girl in another country, who cyberbullies the hell out of everybody. Been aware of her for quite awhile but in recent months she's been focusing her attention my way. Unwanted attention because along with just being an annoying little shit, she's been pressuring to find out who I really am. I gave no ground on this, while there are folks I only know online I've been open to more direct connections with, this twit is nowhere near that kinda desire to me.

Example: This idiot took issue with a guy I know in the twitter RP universe. She setup a fake account, of supposedly a real girl, who also RP'd. She got to know him via their RP sockpuppets until he was open to getting to know the 'real girl'. This went on for a few months until he was well and truly smitten with her. Then, the idiot suicided this 'real girl' she made in order to hurt him.

This is the same psycho I've been having to deal with of late.

Even though she's been devoting her time trying to get under my skin, she still manages to find the time to harass several other people as well...

...but I digress.

She found me out. First @EvilGrins. From the main link there it was simple for her to come here and then scour my links list until she got to my facebook, which is really my only online location that lists my actual name.

This gets to the crux of it. Knowing I know she knows who I am, she's trying to get me to post stuff for her in @the_daily_rag because I have such a wide ranging audience that she hungers for. I'm refusing to grant that because despite she knows who I am, she can't get it through her thick skull that I don't care that she knows.

The mentality is that a lot of folks go to great strides to keep their RL (real life) identities secret. I only did the one stride. So, that it's been discovered by a nutjob with self·esteem issues doesn't overtly disturb me. So much of a nutjob that for all the shit she's pulled, that fake suicide mentioned above being just the tip of the iceberg, she can't wrap her head around why I'm not submitting to her will.

Among my friends on twitter I get @'d maybe a few dozen times a day, any day I tweet. This idiot @'s me as much as the lot of them even on days I don't tweet.

Stalker much?

I'm hoping if I ignore her she will eventually tire out and seek greener pastures... or at least easier to annoy ones. Not that I'd wish her on anyone, even somebody I hated.

For those of you on Twitter, some fun accounts to follow this weekend. Like @NoradSanta, which tracks Santa's trip around the world. That's okay and kinda interesting...

...I prefer @TourettesSanta for stuff like this: "Right. Time for an early night, my sacks BIGHAIRYBOLLOCKS are full!! Big day tomorrow!"

Other good ones: @RealFChristmas @DickTheElf @loadedsanta @santaNO4every1 @santaispissed @DearestSanta @Santa_St_Claus @Mrs_St_Claus

http://www.televisionand.com/2011/08/05/how-to-change-twitter-back-to-the-old-version/

The link above is one of many pages I've been skimming to try and find a way to get back to old twitter. Not much luck. Even though that link goes to a page that was written after the change was made for everybody, the advice it gives come from before.

It's regarding a feature that no longer exists, was removed. Used to be able to click on 'leave preview' and newtiwtter switched back to old.

Not as such.

2:47 AM 5/26/2011 · I don't often seem to have my wide range of things that make me happy, it's a thing. I usually can think of a guhzillion things.

Now?

Not so much.

I spend a rather insane amount of time on twitter these days. It's not so much what I tweet but the reactions to it that has maintained the appeal for me. Like I made a variant of a thing regarding the song Love Shack a few hours ago and barely 5 minutes after that some random guy tweeted "Love shack baby!"

I got such a little zing from that, I can't tell you.

I tweet cuz it makes me happy.

@support @feedback: switching @ with ¡ [Oct. 12th, 2010|01:47 pm]

10:30 PM 10/11/10 · The nice thing about running multiple RP accounts on twitter is that when I encounter an issue with one I can see that it's not necessarily intrisic to just a particular account. A big issue that I've been having of late is that for some odd reason, this just started roundabout last Tuesday, some of the characters I send in my tweets are switching automatically.

@Support & @Twitter have been mentioning that there may be any number of problems with various tweets users attempt to make. Multiple times this has been repeated over the last couple weeks, in conjunction with numerous mentions of the New version of twitter, which I don't use so that's not the issue, but still...

...clearly something is rotten in the state of Denmark!
So to speak.

I've been having to text the same tweets twice because often the first time certain characters have been automatically going to my account differently. The biggie, as it's most commonly used, is @ turning into ¡ which is just weird. Then there's the _ turning into § which is just weird and looks really odd.

Example: Clicky!

A nice feature of twitter is it generally doesn't allow for identical tweets within an hour or so so I don't have to worry about sending the same text twice reverting into identical tweets. Given so many of the tweets are coming out with switched characters, and I tend to interact with most of those I follow, this double texting ensures that at least one of the tweets gets to twitter as it was intended.

I primarily tweet via my cell's texting...

...haven't had any problems tweeting when I'm actually at an internet terminal.

As stated, both @Support & @Twitter have been making multiple mentions over the past week of issues making tweets. However, they usually follow this up after a time with the problem having been resolved yet this character switching continues unabated. To be fair, I occasionally have an hour or so, sometimes only 5 or 7 tweets, where everything goes back to normal.

It doesn't last.

My basic hope is that whatever twitter is doing to its' systems will eventually switch back to normal, although I've a vague worry that much as standard television was phased out of existance that maybe they're trying to get rid of standard texting to make tweets.

As it is, everytime I tweet now I gotta doublecheck whatever account I'm logged into on my Kindle to make sure how things are with each and every single tweet.
