Good twitter feeds

Postby fids » Sun May 20, 2012 3:56 pm

My favorite is WW2 tweets.

they are tweeting the entire second world war in real time. Its currently May 1940 and the French are getting hard time from General Guderian.

I consider "good twitter feed" to be an oxymoron. :D

I'm on there, and keep an eye on what a few people are up to, but I have no idea how to use it.

oh, just tell people when something starts itching, post pictures of your breakfast, repost what someone else already posted. that kind of stuff :P

Basically, anything you might annoy your frineds with in text messages you can now share with the world.

I love rugby and follow many players, its a great way of getting wee bits of info or seeing what they are doing in training etc.

I follow a lot of role playing twitters... and my favourite comedians/authors/bands who aren't around much - it's always great to be reminded their still alive :p

An interesting one is the QI twitter, lots of random facts, all day long!

Is it just me or have spammers really started sucking at their jobs lately?

The post is OK-ish, but the word "image" is a clue!

I've reported it to Our Fearless Leader.

They just copy a line from another post in the thread. and then it seems try to post some kind of image but fail at it. thats probably the third or forth different new member i've seen do that recently. its bad enough to see people try to spam the board, but its painful to see them sucking at it as well.
