    Default Tweet Tweet!

    So as I have been reading and participating on the forums (something I don't usually do), I have come across some people with some pretty interesting ideas. And as I am pretty much only following game developing companies and such on Twitter, I thought it would be a nice change to hear what some actual gamers have to say, rather than nothing but constant posts telling me about upcoming patches or whatever.

    Hence, the RIFT Twitter Feed!

    Are you interesting? Do you have something to say and regularly feed it to the random residents of the worldwide web through Twitter? If so, let us hear you tweet!

    I'll start:

    Forum Name: Kazu
    Twitter Account: @G33KBoy_J


    PS I don't know why, but I hate the word "tweet", ewwbugulah!

    Not a fan of this Twitter/Facebook phenomonon myself. I joined up to Facebook a while back and hated the look and pretty much everything about it. Everything is Twitter this, Facebook that now.

    Saying that, I've been contemplating getting my account up and running again just for the extra following of Rift. It's scaring me...

    ...and will scar me.

    I'm not one for social websites either, but then again I've always preferred anonymity. Though they are good for laughs at times.

    Didn't mean to ruin your thread Kazu. People should go ahead and post their tweet details as it's a worthy idea for a thread.

    Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    It's all good. I figured it would be something people would be really interested in or not at all. I was not a fan of Twitter at all either, but during Aion CB, the devs pretty much forced everyone to get a Twitter account to get info and through that, I found out that it's actually a pretty ingenious piece of web technology. So now I go there to get all of the news I care about in 5 mins of scrounging through posts. Which is excellent because I don't have to go to 10 websites anymore.

    But I'm not really following any people, because when it comes to those kinds of updates, I'm really only interested in gamers. That's why I made this thread.

    I don't like Twitter but Facebook is okay. I think you get more info off of Facebook really but that's just a guess.
    Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    I think Twitter has its uses. It's a kind of alternative to RSS if used correctly, but can get annoying with the micro-updates lots of people tend to do. I rather dislike Facebook more. ;)

    I have a few Twitter accounts, though.

    A wiki is only as good as its contributors won't you help?

    Nah, in all seriousness, if you like twitter go for it, but I like the above version better.

    Well it depends on what you mean when you say "info". I use both, and I can say that Facebook is more for pictures and comments and whatnot. Twitter is where most of the "info" is. When it comes to people, they are giving their actual thoughts and actions, and when it comes to companies, they are updating you on what they are doing. A lot of companies don't have Facebook accounts at all but do have Twitter ones.

    I just added you both. I'll keep a running list of the people who do want to post their info, will be very easy atm, since there's only three, lol.
