I finally got a twitter account. I did it after I discovered that Windows Live Writer will automatically post to twitter with a link to the blog post. If you want to follow me great, if you don’t, I really could care less. I might post something from time to time, or a random though, but honestly whenever I think of twitter this is what I think of:
No I will not be posting anything like that. It took me this long because I couldn’t find an app easily for my Blackberry. I finally found OpenBeak. My issue with finding an app is because I have a standard 8830 instead of one of the newer gen smart phones. Every time I found an app it would stop and say it was incompatible. No I won’t be upgrading, why because I don’t want a camera. Why so stingy on the camera requirement I hear you ask. Well where I work the camera results in me leaving it at the front desk while I’m at work. Now I’m paying a huge phone bill for a smart phone that isn’t with me most of the day. My response to that is F-Off. By the way, I like my job a hell of a lot more than any freaking phone. If I had the money I’d buy one and hack it to remove the camera, but alas that can be used on guns and ammunition instead. You have to have your priorities.
