Twitter Hints That At-Replies And Hashtags Are About To Be Streamlined
Show all
I remember when Twitter was an extension of text messaging, and ats did not exist. #getoffmylawn - Julian from Bookmarklet
It was only a couple of years ago that they actually embraced the word 'tweet'. For most of Twitter's life, they were just called messages. - Akiva
I don't want to sound like a hater, but I cannot believe twitter is still a thing. - Lo
I can't believe it is more of a thing than FF. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Brevity is the soul of it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I think they are missing out on this. Hashtags are a special way of interacting with twitter, like a club or a gang. Lose that and what's twitter? - Todd Hoff

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
The refs let the game go too long. - Julian

Thinking of putting in the Les Mis DVD as my housecleaning soundtrack, but maybe it would be worth the time to dig up the original cast CDs instead!
Ooh! I have that! - Julian
I cleaned a dish in times gone by... - Pete

Yesterday, I saw Windows XP out in the wild, and cringed a bit.
Ten days until it dies. - Julian
We still use it at work and at home. - Not Me
My work computer was one of the last XP machines in the building, until last week. - Kirsten from Android
lris
Oh god. Me too. And I did not even watch the gifs. - laura x from iPhone
#10, #18, #31, #33, #35 - lris
OMG 37 - Julian
No kidding! - lris
Lo

I was sitting here thinking "man, being lonely sucks," but then I was thinking "it's still better than Facebook," and then I remembered "oh yeah, friendfeed!" You still exist! Huzzah!
hey you - MoTO Moca Blend
Hi Lo! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

O HAI! :) - Steven Perez

I did something grown-up today -- buy new glasses.
I will not be obtaining said glasses soon, though. - Julian
After vision insurance, a nice TV might have cost less. However, I would need to be able to better enjoy the TV. - Julian
Also... I might have had my first ever OMG THE DOCTOR IS YOUNGER THAN ME moment. - Julian
Now find a tracker device to find your glasses. Hints from experience. - Janet from FFHound!
... and then I just ordered a second pair (much more basic) for maybe 5% of the cost out-of-pocket compared to what I bought earlier. - Julian
pics, pls - maʀtha

Can we please just do away with the term B.I. once and for all? #grouse
It's like those skeumorphic icons used in software - nobody knows what it is but it's what we click on or call it. - barbara fister
I would rather call it course-integrated instruction because that is what I would rather do. :) - maʀtha
So it's like the "Save" icon being a floppy disk? - Julian
I've been out of library school for an entire decade and BI has never been part of my lingo. We learned about information literacy instruction in school, and that's what I've always called it. I do have colleagues who won't let go of BI, but I refuse to utter the phrase. - kaijsa
huh? i thought you were talking about business intelligence? - Christina Pikas
"bibliographic instruction" - RepoRat
What Kaijsa said, at least as far as the decade and never been part of my lingo. (Although I have folders in both my email and my hard drive labeled "Spring 2014 BI" etc. because it's the shortest possible way to express that concept.) - Catherine Pellegrino
Information literacy instruction works for me, or just plain instruction. BI makes my skin crawl - maʀtha
My first thought when reading the new Draft Competencies was that this SHOULD put the nail in the coffin of BI, finally? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
The terminology will slowly wane. But, honestly, though I don't love the acronym, the original conceptualization was actually quite lofty and resonates very much with - believe it or not - the new IL Framework. #KnowYourHistory #DontConfuseTheoryWithPractice The Model Statement of Objectives for Academic Bibliographic Instruction is still one of the most compelling frameworks I've ever seen, even if the name seems archaic. - Lisa Hinchliffe
We renamed the webpages that have the forms for requesting classes and appointments last year. Both filenames had bi in them. Progress. - Rebecca Hedreen
Brian Johns
I just learned today that Joan Rivers is still alive.
How lucky for you to be oblivious all this time. :) - Tamara J. B.
She's going strong at age 80. Her career actually improved -- high-grossing comedy tours -- after the 2010 documentary about her, "A Piece of Work" and her Celebrity Apprentice win in 2009. - Stephen Mack
I think she might be touring over here soon... - Heleninstitches
I remember the first time my parents took us camping in Tahoe (along with my mom's brother's family) back in the 1980s. One of the nights, I was watching the younger kids and my cousins while the parents hit the casinos. Joan Rivers was playing at the Caesar's Palace, and my mom wanted to see her, but my dad thought the tickets were too expensive. My mom decided to play the slots, and... more... - Stephen Mack
Great story, Stephen! - Tamara J. B.
Her face will live forever. - Julian
Well, I only learned about her still being alive due to her recent comments about Lena Dunham's weight. I wonder what this will do to her career. - Brian Johns

From 1969-1993, only two MLB postseasons did not involve at least one stadium that sported artificial turf -- 1969 and 1988.
Of the past 19 MLB postseasons (1995-2013), there have been only six postseasons free of artificial turf -- 1996, 1999, 2000, 2005, 2007, and 2012. That, even with all the new stadiums and the sharp decline of artificial turf in baseball stadiums. - Julian

Domain name madness! New TLDs are available for domain name purchasing -- and many more are coming soon!

""I'm sure a couple fans are going to try to crush it alone, but we're hoping it's for a family," Boyer said. "That being said, we'll have something special for the first person who takes it down by themselves."" - Julian from Bookmarklet
By next Friday, I expect this to be seen on SportsCenter -- one way or another. - Julian

Book bound in human skin found in Harvard Law Library... http://www.thecrimson.com/article/2006/2/2/the-skinny-on-harvards-rare-book/
Yale has skull & bones. Harvard got the skin. - Spidra Webster
I know UGA has at least one. They like to show it off on tours. - LB: Ratchet Bear
wait, what? UGA has a skin book? Egad. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
I wonder what MfPOW has that can compete... - Julian
thanks for the link LB. that is... interesting. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
There was one nearby my workplace, but it was rebound. http://www.popularresistance.org/school-... The Iliff School of Theology is essentially on my campus, but they are under completely different management. - Joe - Systems Analyst
I found the placement of an ad for facelifts on the page more disturbing than the topic of the article. - Rebecca Hedreen
Yes, that is pretty darn creepy. - Spidra Webster
Zamms
It rhymes with Sex Jesus and it's kind of making my hair grayer today.
Unless my hair is graying because of the natural aging process. - Zamms
That's a creative rhyme. And yes, it has the power to morph follicles. - Julian
Boy, does it! - Zamms

This Keurig DRM thing... I don't quite get it.
I just see a lot of people hanging onto their current-gen Keurig machines. - Julian
The k-cups are a more stable profit generator than the machines. They figure that even among the people who don't want the new machines, a decent percentage will keep buying the k-cups. Even the people who hang onto the old machines will eventually have those break/fail on them, and they're counting on a certain percentage of those people to just go ahead and buy one of the newer models. - Jennifer Dittrich
It reminds me a bit of the various special paper/marker/paint offerings that Crayola have now. Before, they just sold the pigment. Now they're selling you the paper, too. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm just a tea person. Much harder to DRM good tea. Or good coffee, for that matter. - Julian
Yeah, I'm not a pre-measured cups person. I don't seem to mind it with bags of tea, though even there I prefer to measure the leaves for myself. I can see their line of thinking, especially since you've already got a market of people that have shown a preference for pre-measured, but think it will ultimately backfire. - Jennifer Dittrich
Think of it like ink-jet printers and ink. All the profit is in the ink. HP has been DRMing their ink cartridges for a while now. - Eric - Watch Me Now
Oh, and the patent ran out. So, this is the only way to keep people buying your brand. - Eric - Watch Me Now
And this is why I bought a bunch of their reusable K-cups and just fill them with my own coffee. They can DRM away on the disposable pods all they want. - Hookuh Tinypants
Julian
KU has no chance of winning this game.
Especially with clank after clank... - Julian
Yup. - Julian

RT @espnstatsinfo: Today, Mercer will try to be the 1st 14 seed to make the Sweet 16 since Chattanooga in 1997. Mercer beat Tennessee in last year's NIT.
Terrell Owens played for Chattanooga a few years earlier. TO was on the team that lost to UConn in the first round in 1995. - Julian

RepoRat is currently kicking all kinds of ass in her patron privacy presentation, focusing on what we can do with tech (and education) to increase patron privacy
I would imagine that she is not taking names. Privacy and all. - Julian
hahahahah ha ha YES - maʀtha
I confirm that I took no names. *g* Dropped a few, though (including Francoeur's; I stole the Google Ad Settings idea). - RepoRat
Lightning Rounds coming up include John Fink and Jen Holman! - maʀtha
Oooh, Jen & co are talking about Guide on the Side - maʀtha
OMG DID YOU HEAR JOHN YELLING WHERE YOU WERE?!?!?!? - maʀtha
IT WAS KIND OF LOUD YEAH - RepoRat
DUDE, I HEARD IT ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE. - Marianne
John's pres was such a great way to end the session - great message and so very entertaining! - Jen

Ohio State will go for the final shot and the win. - Julian
Well. There goes any chance at a billion dollars. - Julian
