Twitter Addiction

I'm going to partially put the blame on spudart for this one, but I seem to have become addicted to twitter. I don't get it though.. I guess it just gives me another outlet to rant about nothing, which is always useful I guess. Plus, people that I don't know seem to jump in and magically answer questions that I have, which is something I don't get to much of from this blog.

I've been using TweetDeck to manage my twitter experience. The only downside has been that tweets that I mark as read from home are still listed as new when I check from work (and vice versa) which just requires a quick scroll to remember where I was in the list of received tweets. I was even (and still am) considering writing my own twitter client with a centralized database to keep track of settings like that.

In the meantime, as of about 10 minutes ago, I've come up with a solution involving DropBox, which is a free folder syncing/online storage solution. Basically, I've put my TweetDeck folder in my synchronized DropBox folder, so one set of settings is now shared by any computer I'm on – no rereading tweets!


So.. if you can't get enough of me from this blog, feel free to follow me on twitter.

    I find myself posting to twitter often as well. I find that it gives me a quick break at work when I need it.

    Dude, you post all about your twitter addiction, yet no linky to your tweeter account? C'mon man! Here we go world: Dumdumdum DAAAAAA

    Brilliant idea on putting the Tweetdeck into Dropbox. I need to try tweetdeck more. Right now i use Google Reader to track my tweetin' fools.
