this interweb is making me feel old!!!

...So someone mentioned in a comment that I should get a twitter. so I did. I don't know what I am supposed to do with it though. I am wondering if it was a direct result of me posting a few words regarding the Welsh rugby. Correct me if I am wrong but the purpose of having a twitter is the same as a blog? only way shorter? so i can update it like every five minutes or something? So like, "just woke up" and "is brushing teeth" "is having a poop" type of thing?
The internet is making me tired. I can't seem to find enough time to play on the xbox because there's so many things to become obsessive compulsive online with. haha, only kidding.
so whatever this twitter is, I have one and I hope it doesn't hurt me or anything, I shall try and keep it updated, would love any advise from all you budding little inter-blog wizards out there as to how I should use it.
I wrote an actual letter the other day with a pen and paper! can you believe it? I can still write joined up writing! I dread to think how poor my spelling was, ne' mind, it was thought that counted.

Jamie is planning never to grow up!

bugger, I almost forgot Twitter: jayLostprophets


Also, could someone please contact the lostprophets myspace and ask them to re-link my blog to the site. I have forgotten which one of us is running it at present, last time I went on it i read some seedy messages by accident that were not meant for my eyes, so I vouched never to open Pandora's box again...plus I think the boys banned me from using it because I am way too opinionated. I wonder if that's why my blog has been disconnected?????
...It's time to call in Columbo me thinks...

Oh gosh, twitter has got you too ! I dont have one, but have been aware for a while that im activly seeing how long it'll take before curiosity gets the better of me. I dont understand it at all. Is it like facebook status updates or something ? Maybe some more down-with-it kids will reply and i'll get all my answers ! hah.

Love Bri.

Re: Twitter
I believe it's a more concise version of a blog, and probably more narcissistic in the sense that you think everyone cares to know what you are doing from one moment to the next and is anxiously awaiting your next twit, tweet, or twat - however you roll. The therapeutic aspect of it is believing that you have a following can only enhance one's self-esteem and sense of self-worth.

Re: Blog on Myspace
It says your blog link is spam. Hehehehehehehehe

Basically you can either update online or by txt You can only use 140 characters in your update. Why 140? i have no idea. You can also follow what others are up to too by clicking the 'Follow' button on their Twitter Profile. So if you wanted to follow say Funeral For A Friend you'd go to www.twitter.com/ffaf and click 'Follow'. And then you can reply to the person's update by putting @ffaf in your update.
I call it Cyber Stalking.

Some update every minute of the day, others just update when necessary.

I hope that gave you more of an idea of how to use Twitter.

Tell me about it, I recently set myself a very harsh writing regime, but always make the error of first checking my e-mails and replying, which somehow heads to blogging, then YouTube... and thus I write about 5 words all day!

Due to my recent twitter addiction, I have a bad feeling it was my suggestion... and now feel slightly guilty for introducing you to another obsessive internet site. Still, being able to cyber-stalk Stephen Fry, Alan Davies and Eddie Izzard with no risk of being arrested can't be bad, though I'm slightly disappointed with Eddie's recent efforts. "Going for walk." "Back from work." Could it be the comedy mastermind is slipping, hmm.

on the myspace blog tip, its not u sweetheart as all the band blog links r broke (think i left u a comment bout it on here a while back) will send a msg though

Anaviel said...

I don't really know what to think about twitter, not sure if I really want that much personal information about someone. And I won't join it because of this: "Twitter collects personally identifiable information about its users and shares it with third parties [...] and reserves the right to sell it if the company changes hands."

Annie said...

i have a twitter phobia or something xD just can't get into it..
and you my dear are going to become a potential stalking victim! a blog or two everyday, now twitter.. better be careful! too much attention and people could get the idea of wanting more. like me.. (flickr is full of your family and friends)

and if the band doesn't like your blog, then make it a personal not-to-the-band-related blog.. you're not just a member of the band. you're independent if you want to and not every single information has to be connected with lostprophets pages.

LOL. Interesting I don't know anyone on twitter. It makes it easy to stalk people dont you think? Seriously? They took your blog link off the site cos you're too opiniated? Hmm. Interesting.

Frankie said...

Don't worry. I'm 18 and I feel old when the internet gets the better of me. =) But I plan to feel very young again tomorrow when I rock out to Ian's DJing in Plymouth! Hope he's good! ;)

thought you might like that video/song.. i'm obsessed with it and listen to it 24/7. well.. not 24/7 but a lot..
this guy really has a problem with his hips. his legs can't hold his bodyweight.. i find it fascinating how he makes his handicap to a form of art. brilliant.

Christopher Walken amuses me daily with his tweets on twatter, they are both random and sarcastic, two qualities that warrant my following

I thought you might enjoy this, Jamie. I know I did.

Twitter means one more tool for our 'Society of control'. I hate that shit! "-So like, 'just woke up' and 'is brushing teeth' 'is having a poop' type of thing?" You read my mind!
I mean, blog is something that you put your perspective, your thoughts about something, and you want everybody to know! You really don't give a shit if someone will read or not. But this "tool" don't work! Who is the guy that will be watching and monitoring your life? I mean, I have a life! Ok, for the fans this thing is possible. But as I saying, this is just my thought about this crap!

hugs man!

Zeph said...

Yeah, I got twitter recently, and I can see how addictive it actually is.

Things like that probably delay albums.....

Anyhow, you now have a new follower/stalker on twitter, so watch out.

And yeah, myspace links have been out for ages......

*Twitch* said...

Myspace has blocked all blogs on this site in general because they were using the links to spam people. Something along those lines. My friend mailed the myspace team about it being broken.
Someones probably already explained this. But im just to lazy to read through all the comments.
Hope it explains things anyways
