I missed the memo that stated links from the message board would land on Twitter? Anybody know when this started happening?

I've been following VInow.com on Twitter for almost a year.

Just saying....a lot of people post personal info... now that this board is on Twitter probably won't...which includes me in the mix.

It's good that you bring this to everyone's attention...but this board has, (I'm guessing) a far greater following in memberships than the 1900 or so followers on Twitter through VInow. In other words, the VINow twitter feed only adds to the audience a little bit. One should not assume that this board is anymore safe for personal info than twitter or any other forum. One need not be a member to read the forums, after all. Post with caution...the internet is for ever.

The internet is just hard on some folks. I once asked a fellow what his website was (HIS WEBSITE!). He couldn't remember, but he assured me I couldn't miss it...it was on the 4th page of google.

If Anita missed your point, I and some other friends did as well, so what was your point?

Andrea You're on Twitter got your account blocked doesn't that mean the same?

btw, is this another of your PM conversations about folks here? "and some other friends did as well, so what was your point?"

Sorry Tippi, but once again I have no idea who or what you're talking about. I just know that Anita is correct when she suggested your concerns about vinow on Twitter are silly, because vinow is on the Internet, of which Twitter is only a small part.

Edited to add: And there's no need to try -- again -- to explain yourself, because I don't care.

Andrea,

"- to explain yourself, because I don't care." I think you do care or you wouldn't be posting your opinion and those from your PM's.

For clarification your tweets are not blocked as I posted earlier, rather you have chosen a "private" feature which means -
This person has protected their tweets.

Sorry, but I still don't understand why anyone cares that what they post here is linked elsewhere. Isn't this message board open to whoever wants to look at it. You don't even have to log in to view. If there is a real concern, please explain.

I only care about correcting falsehoods attributed to me.

I do not tweet now, I have never before tweeted, I do not expect to tweet in the future, and I feel ridiculous even referring to something an adult does as "tweet."

I see no real concern, because people who use public forums know everything they post is for public consumption.

I don't know how to use the quote thing on the message board so I just copied and pasted the above statement from dntw8up. Laughing so hard I cannot breathe. What the heck is a tweet anyway? Why do people tweet? Who came up with twitter and tweet?

dntw8up all I could think of was "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Suess.

I do not like them
in a house.
I do not like them
with a mouse.
I do not like them
here or there.
I do not like them
anywhere.
I do not not like green eggs and ham.
I do not not like them, Sam I am.

How do you protect a tweet????? Do you cover them with a "little twit"? If you cannot cover them does it end up with a tweetle bettle battle?

Tami: At the bottom right of the post box (whatever the heck it is called), it says "reply", "quote" and "report." If you click "quote" the entire post will appear and you may edit out whatever part(s) you don't want. I think technology is only as good as the technology user. Facebook and Twitter and iPhones and computers in general have positive and negative uses. Excuse me while I go tweet dnt!!

BTW, this whole conversation is an interesting exercise in how "what you thought I said is not what I said." which is very common on the internet, it seems to li'l ole me. 😉

I'm showing my age, but what exactly is Twitter? Is it like face book or is it texting?

Andrea - The above may be your intentions at the moment however, you do have a tweet account.

I give up Tippi. You clearly have me confused with someone else, but it doesn't matter. You don't know me -- not my name or anything else about me -- but you persist in arguing as if you do. So fine, believe what you wish, and enjoy yourself by keeping the discussion board "informed" about inane things like the fact that vinow appears on Twitter.
