Not on Twitter

Postby Graham » 29 Nov 2014, 19:18

Ever wonder why Paul's not on Twitter? As a service to the rest of us.

Finally, a movement or cause I can get behind... besides Desert Bus / Child's Play, of course. You might need to go a little deeper than just staying off Twitter though - I already don't use it but still manage to keep up with the same random junk my friends find.

Great concept though, and very painfully true. Also, I spotted the wee doggy statue first time around again, bringing my year's total up to... 4.

I understand the concept behind Twitter (or at least I think I do) but I never got in to it. Though I did some how create an account on my phone once that didn't have a password then had to "change" my non-existent password just to delete the account.
I may not be funny or witty, but that does not make me less strange.

I checked out the NotOnTwitter.org site... there's a type at the bottom, when you click on the Tweet symbol "arn't" is misspelled as... well... "arn't".

In addition to this, clicking on the logo fails spectacularly on Firefox 33/Mac. It same-page redirects to "javascript:false;", which displays a blank page. It doesn't actually execute the JS/False do-nothing code, it actually goes to a page and doesn't display the pop-up.

Well, that just about settles it. Paul is my new hero, then. Glad that's cleared up!

Thanks for the heads up! Should be fixed now.

I am on Twitter, but I tend to end up in a similar situation as Paul because I simply don't usually read my Twitter feed. :D It's just there for show, mainly. :D

I have to admit I found the jerky way the background was moving was distracting.

Also following LoadingReadyRun is the reason I joined Twitter.

I joined Twitter mainly because I join every single social network, just to test it out, even if I ultimately stop using it. (Anyone want some Ello codes, by the way?)

I stayed on Twitter due to LRR, and also my job.

Yeah, same. Might require a 'not on Reddit' too.

I have been NotOnTwitter for longer than there's even been a twitter. Back in my days, joining NotOnTwitter was like something people wouldn't be allowed to do or face severe repercussions from their Social Medially Afflicted peers.

I'm the NotOnTwitter hipster... I was NotOnTwitter before it was cool...
And then I burned my mouth drinking coffee before it was cool.

Love the dedication of creating/setting-up specific websites any time they are part of a video, I am trying to remember how many I have seen you guys do (I want to say I have seen at least three others and the Wingnut twitter accounts)

Same here, joined this year to get DB8 trending, haven't logged in since. I keep getting tons of e-mails from Twitter trying to get me to use my account, like, in any way, at all. Kinda funny, really. :lol:
