There's been a bunch of forward motion at Twitter HQ in two weeks.
We've done significant work on our infrastructure to make things
better, we've built some new features, and we're adding new ways
to interact with Twitter. We'd love to have you come by and check
things out! http://twitter.com
Support for @Replies
We noticed a whole bunch of Twitter-ers adopting a new way to
communicate specifically to individuals in a public way by adding
an @ symbol before a username like this: "@biz thinking I'll get a
soy latte too!" To make this experience a bit better, we added a
few features to support this behavior.
- The Replies Tab will display an archive of @replies
- @Replies are followed by an 'in reply to' link for context
- @username automatically links the username to the profile
Last week, Facebook.com released a new applications platform and
invited other companies to create cool apps that can be used
inside Facebook. Twitter was among the first to create such an
application. So, if you're a Facebook user and you like Twitterin',
then please consider downloading the Twitter Facebook application:
MTV Movie Awards
This Sunday Aziz Ansari, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, and Jason Woliner
from the sketch comedy Human Giant will all be twittering during
the pre-party, red carpet, and ceremony of the MTV Movie Awards.
If you want to watch along or just get the scoop from behind the
scenes, text FOLLOW HUMANGIANT to 40404. We've set something up so
you'll get updates from each of the guys before, during, and after
the awards. The MTV Movie Awards are live Sunday June 3 at 8PM/7C.
Should be fun, check out Human Giant: http://tinyurl.com/ytqzbd
Netvibes is a very popular personalized start page you can use to
assemble your favorite web stuff in one customizable spot.
Yesterday, the nice folks over at Netvibes included Twitter in
their default set of ready-made modules. Head over to Netvibes.com
and click the Twitter link in the lower left-side column -- in
about three seconds you'll be receiving and sending Twitters on
your new start page. Or, click here: http://tinyurl.com/ys8pq4
Just as you would text FOLLOW HUMANGIANT to 40404, you can do with
any Twitter user. If you text FOLLOW BIZ to 40404, you'll start
getting my updates. Likewise, you can LEAVE BIZ when you're sick
of me. There's more hints on our Lingo Page. Keep in mind that
40404 is the US shortcode so it's different for the rest of the
world. To set up your mobile to work with Twitter and find out
what your country's specific code is, visit the Phone & IM page.

Twitter is looking for a Ruby on Rails Developer and a Senior
Engineer. If you or anyone you know is interested in helping us
make Twitter awesome, please have a look at our jobs page:
http://twitter.com/help/jobs. The jobs are full time in our lovely
San Francisco office. We have a little building all to ourself
that opens up to South Park -- a secret little patch of green right
in the city with a great burrito shop and a short walk to the bay.
It's really quite nice even if I do say so myself.

Yes this is a blatant theft of the outline that Jess uses on her page, but I asked permission. Why?? Because I am a hardcore admin and can make ugly tables to make you developers frustrated, but this was too nice to pass up.
Yes, I write some of those dreaded admin cert exams you take. I won't say which ones so you don't come looking for me, but I will say they are the real good recent ones that have been coming out.
One dog, a Pug. He has been on this world before and seems to understand slippers and a fine cigar. Mind you that is him in the chair and not me.
Let us now also add a deranged cat that is in the process of being toilet trained. Update: Toilet traning was very very close.
Non-stop. At my desk, in my car, walking to work and back to my car downtown. In the house there is a crazy zoned set-up for you home automation geeks.
I am a self-proclaimed MP3 fiend, to which I have tried rehab 4 billion times to no avail. Next is the MP3 hard-drive for the car that I found. Now what kind of music you ask? I will never tell.
Get back to you here
Hershey’s Stomach of Holding: Jess and I are fighting over who eats more chocolate. TWDUFF can help me out and vouch for me.
This will take far more time than I have today. I will start with I was born and still live in St. Louis, MO. Even though for a couple years I was never, ever here and always on the road, this is smack in the middle of the US. Everything is just a few hour flight. That part is nice. No beach/ocean/coast isn't the best. But with the travel I make up for it.
Looking to find me in person? Here is where I will be.
