NQC 08: Twitter
So the interns (and M and C) have convinced me to try Twittering NQC this year. I emphasize “try” because I’m only half-sure I know how this whole thing works (if you’re unfamiliar and want to jump in the deep end, try this as an explainer). Nevertheless, I gather that if you want to be a “follower” you can add me (”averyfineline”) to your “following” category, assuming you’ve got a (free) Twitter account (and yes, the culty rhetoric does skeeve me out a bit, but I’ve found you get used to it pretty quickly). Alternatively, you can just visit my Twitter homepage and see my updates there if you don’t want to subscribe to a (free) Twitter feed.
The idea here is that for those of you who just can’t wait for my late-night post-facto reports on avfl, you can use Twitter to get some off the cuff real-time updates from me throughout the evening at NQC that, as per the Twitter policy, do not exceed 140 characters, including spaces. So if you’ve ever wondered what shorter Avery looks like, Twitter may be your bag.
Thus, if I were to Twitterpate this post, it might look like this: I’m atwitter, you can twitter, be atwitter too, http://twitter.com/averyfineline. [With 34 characters to spare, thank you very much]Email this Post
