I am a relatively active Twitter user. One of the things I do in order to keep Twitter a fairly enjoyable place, is to actively use the Block feature. I usually leave it at blocking individual users, but some tweets are simply so nasty that I don’t only want to block the user that tweeted (twote?) the tweet, but also anyone who likes it.
I am a relatively active Twitter user, and enjoy the many discussions I have with people of varied points of view and experiences on the site. One of the things I don’t enjoy, is the inevitable trolls and bots. Luckily, there are a number of tools out there that evaluates an account or tweet. I have found the following to be particularly useful:
In the past year or so, I have been using Twitter a fair amount, and I have found that, despite all of the systemic issues of bullying and harassment, there are also plenty of communities from which to learn, exchange ideas, and commiserate.

I have recently gotten back into using Twitter, after having left it as little more than a channel through which I promote the posts on this blog for a fairly long time.

I’ve been using twitter for a while now, and lately, I’ve been posting my blog posts as tweets. However, I don’t do it manually. Rather, I’ve set it up to be posted automagically. Setting it up is as simple as it could possibly be. Here’s how:
One of the big things of today is micro-blogging. If you don’t know what it is, think of Facebook, and then think of the status field in Facebook. Strip most of the other functionality away. That’s microblogging. In other words; microblogging is responding to the question “What are you doing right now?”
I’ve got an account at Twitter (my nick there is @razumny), and wanted the last two entries to be displayed in the sidebar of my personal blog. Here’s how I did it:
First, you’ll want to find the RSS-feed address for your twitter feed. If you go to your twitter feed page, you’ll see a link at the bottom of the sidebar on the right side, like so:
I recently started using Twitter, and I actually quite like it.
