*sigh* Friends Trim

1. If you post long twitter posts without a cut tag, I have probably removed you from my "friends" list. Seriously, use cut tags. I get tired of phone text grammar all over my f-list.

2. If I have you friended, but you don't have me and you aren't someone I want to keep track of, you're gone. Mind you, you'll never see this notice anyway, since I'm not on your f-list.

I put trivia and blitherings about my daily life friends-only. My political and religious rants are usually public.

I don't do twitter - I have carpal tunnel in my one useable wrist, why would I do phone text?

I don't do FarceBook or MySpaced - really, I think that Facebook and MySpace suck, look trashy, are shallow, are aimed toward brain-dead teenagers, and are a huge waste of time. Don't ask for my info there - it doesn't exist.

The only twitters I don't get extremely annoyed with are from friends who have an emergency occuring. Other than that, I agree with you about them.

The only person I can think of who does the LoudTwitter dump with style and verve is vidicon--because in a meritocracy he would have time to write newspaper columns, and would be paid for it. There's a moral there.

Thanks for keeping my boring LJ.

You sum up my LJ habits perfectly: no other blog spots, no twitter - and a friend of the 'friended' ^_^

*trembles* But when it was time to upgrade from my old, dying phone, I deliberately chose one with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard so I could text to people in complete sentences with capitalization and punctuation! It actually bothers me that I don't know how to put the accent marks in "stór mo chrói" when I'm texting to Dr. Boyfriend!

Wait, I do what for a living? Never mind.

Re: Textspeak
Which is why you're still on my friends list - if you text, you do it in English, not in junky textspeak.

I cringe every time I see stuff like "hey, how r u doin 2day? can u come c me? hey were r u goin? "

My mother was a teacher before she retired, and one of my grandmothers was a reference librarian.

I don't much care for Twitter either. Generally makes no sense to me. Nor do I do Spacebook or Myspacier. Glad I made the cut.
