    Any of you you use twitter, either as a promotional tool or just for regular use? I've started to use it a bit more lately, but all of the downtime is really annoying
     
  2. i use it more for personal use. the downtime is because they are rebuilding their entire app in js/php and ditching ror.

    I would use it more for personal use but its been kinda hard to get friends to use it. Everyone is still stuck using facebook/myspace :hs:
     
  4. with my friends it wasn't a matter of convincing them to switch....but to just use it on the side. we actually use it more than myspace now and treat it like a sort of chatroom kinda thing that we check in on daily.

    When I first started using it I thought it was the most amazing thing ever. Now I never use it.

    That's not true.

    This is what I wrote a few days ago when someone asked.

  10. twitter doesn't even use RoR actually, only small snippets of it http://twitter.com/ev/statuses/801530348

    but it doesn't explain why other sources claim that twitter told them about ditching ror in the first place. maybe they're just taking out the ror that they do use and replacing it.

    Terrible idea that is trying to ride the web 2.0 bandwagon with brute promotional force. Sick of seeing it everywhere.

    :werd: that site is pretty cool
     
  15. granted the site was done with ajax, but there are tons of other flash mashups just like that. there are some cool ones that take twitter geotags and post up your twitter on a google earth map :cool:

    I don't see the point of using Twitter for my own site...especially since I already have a VBulletin. Even then, I think it's really overrated as a marketing tool and a social networking application...no idea why Shoemoney loves it so much.

    following anything he does isn't really a great idea. I mainly just use it with http://twitterfeed.com/ to send my feed there for people to follow
    Its not a bad place to network with some people as well
