YES. Lug. Yes.

Also I have altered the title of this thread to be more accurate and acceptable.

Oh my GOD is that a one-word post? COME ON seriously, put some EFFORT into this, SHIT.

Fuckin supporters running amok like they own the place! LIKE THEY PAID FOR THIS PLACE OR SOMETHING!

"We were all notified on twitter." Cracked me up more than it should have.

I want to use the term "Bumfuckers" for these individuals, but I fear I may insult or offend some of my brothers and sisters on here..so just take it with a pinch of salt, as the old says directs.

Re: Does this make me an asshole? (The rep-fuck thread and twitter discussion)

Great now I have to moderate this thread.
(nobody likes seeing two posts in a row with the same icon)

Also, yeah I was going to say "Oh, I'll TAKE IT alright, IN THE BUM" and then go on about how I couldn't manage to make a pinching joke but yeah.

I also really get a kick out of how Amechanics' post now "quotes itself" like Paulie Walnuts in the Sopranos.

Re: Does this make me an asshole? (The rep-fuck thread and twitter discussion)

I feel the same way about most of the people posting in this thread right now to be honest.

Do any of you actually use Twitter? Or have you just decided it's shit because it's popular or something?

If you think the tweets you're seeing are boring or pointless then simply don't follow them.

I do kind of think that makes you sound like a bit of an asshole, D_Davis. To be fair though, I would probably be on the "yeh, fuck dat shit" bandwagon with the rest of you if this was bashing Facebook or YouTube or something.

Or the new Soundcloud. Fuck, I hate the new Soundcloud. And anyone over the age of 29 years 4 months and 18 days who talks about their songs or their followers loses 18.63% of my respect.

I keep on forgetting i have a twitter account, though it does have one thing over facebook in that your feed is unfiltered so your tweet goes out to all your followers, whereas faceache deliberately blocks status updates from the newsfeeds of your followers so you have to pay money to reach more people.

It's one thing to be bashing twitter, and another thing to be bashing people who talk about their twitter status in person. If we were doing this in person - taking it seriously, and not having a laugh - I would completely be on board with you here.

Like yeah if someone has a twitter and stuff great whatever, I don't personally want to hear about them talking about it at the pub or something though. Not a good conversation piece, "So I posted on twitter the other day..." "Yeah man, I saw it. :\"

RARELY do I talk about IDMf in person with other people, unless I'm shamelessly plugging it like "yeah if you're interested in electronic music and theory, this is the place to be." Not "haha I posted that thing in the side room on IDMf it was great."

WOW I didn't know it had gotten that bad there, I left Facebook many years ago... Here is my just cause!

Fuck. Yeah, there was a reason I said it makes him "sound like an asshole" but I forgot to add an extra bit. I was gonna say it totally depends on context. I hear people talking in real life about Facebook exchanges and the like, so I figured why not Twitter? But yeah, dependent on context I guess.

"You guys, guess what? I got three new Twitter followers today and someone retweeted my tweet about sharpening a pencil." - Is this the kind of real life talk that loses people's respect. I never really hear people talk about Twitter in real life.

Twitter gives you a nice line of communication, even if it's only one way for most, with people whose work you might enjoy, "celebrities", musicians, actors, comedians etc but you can use it for real life friends too. I think it's good.

But yeah, this thread looks like it turned into Twitter hate, but what you get out of it depends on who you follow I think. Some people can be creative with their 140 characters. Or just tweet several times in a row

I use twitter, to keep up with audio manufactures I find it superb.

If I had a choice between Facebook & Twitter id take twitter everytime.

Twitter being one of the many social media websites that don't allow inline image and video embedding?
The more important question being: What does this have to do with people who talk about twitter in person?
