Stenner is the dude, not me

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

The Indo today (Heylo) suggested I was the one that did the Hope, Dope, Nope poster. No, I only pointed it out. Stenner is the genius that did that and the Rick O’Che one too.

Director of communications company tells me about C U Next Tuesday on Twitter and how that bad word is in my Twitter profile url and it’s obscene. I act shocked and confused. What ever does she mean? The penny eventually drops and old-skool type deleting of the mess happens (Aside: Oh yes and after finding out Rupert Murdoch owns Facebook, she deleted her profile):

Director of telling Damien what C U Next Tuesday really means

So after that, she deletes all those messages to me as if it didn’t happen. Liam makes a comment and she thanks him for his support:

Liam is thanked for his support

He says he didn’t support her. She deletes that message but they still show up in the Twitter timeline.

So the nuclear option is taken, the whole Twitter account is wiped. I’ll leave it to Liam for his take:

There’s a case study in this on how NOT to engage with an online community. I dunno what rule number it is but Rule No. Yellow is: Don’t join an online community and tell them how they should behave on their space especially if done in your language not theirs. Understanding a community takes time, you need immersion. If someone has Cuntfuckistan as their URL then there’s a strong chance it was put their on purpose. It’s not like I bent down to tie my lace and someone changed my profile URL.

What the fock? Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is blogging and Twittering, kinda

Monday, October 27th, 2008


Not that you’d spot it on the Irish Times blog page since they don’t link to the blog of Ross called Life With Ross. The 8th Ross book is out for Christmas and Ross has a blog and he’s even on that Twitter yoke too. However if you look at the blog it’s just actually pulling in updates from his Twitter account. Maybe that’s why it’s not listed on the Blog section?

I hope Ross interacts with people on Twitter like he did via the text ins he did/does.
