Things I’ve learned from Twitter:

Posted in Twitter with tags , , on October 22, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

  1. Twitter is down sometimes more than 7 times briefly in my workday. I’ve actually named the Fail Whale after seeing it so many times. Hello Charlie!
  2. Having local strangers on your follow list sometimes turns into great friendships.
  3. Not all businesses are spam. Some are just letting you know what you’re missing if you don’t work locally. @in_gre_di_ent ½ Sammy of the day Turkey Avocado Club Shaved turkey breast, avocado, bacon, spring greens, Roma Tomato… (Seriously had me at “avocado”! Damn I wish I worked in Lawrence).
  4. Don’t judge others only on who they follow/tweet with and always remember that the only person that should be held accountable for being a dick, is the one being a dick.
  5. On any day of the week I know I can count on at least three people willing to entertain me with their tweets.
  6. Don’t ever piss off Sunflower Broadband.
  7. Hawks tweets less than he ever plurked.
  8. There is always a lunch planned somewhere in Lawrence, and I’m missing it.
  9. There happens to actually be *cool* moms in Lawrence, and I’ve found them on Twitter. Lawrence twits are anything but dull.
  10. Lawrence.com (@lcom) is a tease and will dangle concert tickets in front of my face.

Bonus: There will always be a Kanye West joke. 🙂

AND…. How could I forget this? :p RT @Luthi @Jells you forgot one: Luthi is super awesome and funny and stuff 😛

Twitter Toilet of Plurky Poo!

Posted in Social Media with tags , , , on October 20, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Dear Plurkers,

Please stop using Twitter as your toilet to which you are depositing your plurky poop!

Thank you,

Kimberlee

I know, I’ve been there.  I use to have my plurks heading over to Twitter too. That was before I realized how stupid that is. The point of social media is to actually be social. If you’re sending your plurks over to Twitter, but not checking Twitter, how the heck is that social? It’s not. You might as well be a bot or having a one-sided convo with yourself.

If it’s too much and you just cannot keep up with all your social media, then mayhaps don’t try to connect them all. I for one hate reading plurks on Twitter (since as you know I no longer use Plurk) and knowing that if I choose to respond to you on Twitter with a mention (@) that you’re never going to see it. So please just stop the madness!

I feel like a bitch for unfollowing people for this, so I guess I’ll just be the bitch… If I’m wrong, then tell me but answer one question for me: Why are you using Twitter in the first place if Plurk is where you are “socializing”?

Twitter blessings & social circus…

Posted in Real Life with tags , , , , on October 19, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Hawks was not kidding when he wrote his Revolution post yesterday where he said“Now all of a sudden, I am running into people at every event and all over town that are extremely wired into both lives that they lead, and it is fun to literally have an option for a social function any night of the week.”

Let me share with you our weekend via pics & minimal commentary…

Friday Night – Late Night at the Phog:

Bryan & three of the loverly KU dancers.

Full house at Allen Field House… This is how HUGE KU Basketball is. 16,300 packed the Fieldhouse to watch the late night practice!

Saturday – Baldwin City Maple Festival:

I made a story on Whrrl that you can see if you click here. For some reason I can’t ever get it imbeded into my blog posts. Boo!

Sunday – 23rd Street Brewery Pizza Party:

23rd Street Brewery offered all their Twitter followers a free one topping pizza last night. It sort of became a mini tweetup/pizza party. Hawks, me, Ashley, Jessica, Andrew, Travis, Zack, Briana and two other folks I can’t remmy all went. Jessica took that pic of me last night at the Pizza Party. I think that’s her thumb in it. LOL!

That’s my weekend in a nutshell. I’m thinking pretty soon Hawks & I are going to need more than a google calender to keep up with our social circus. It really has been a blessing, for me at least, to meet all these great people on Twitter. I finally feel like I fit in here in Lawrence… and it feels good!

Okay enough mushy shit. I haven’t decided yet if I want to switch Free State of Mind over into a real-life blog or not. We have Our Lawrence for that but I was thinking that this one might be more personal. It isn’t like we haven’t planted little seeds of real life here before. It seems sort of fitting since we named it “Free State” after me moving here to the Free State to be with Hawks.  I’ll let you know what we decide.

I think we’re done here…

If you haven’t noticed my presence on Plurk for the past couple days, it’s probably because I moved. Yup. I hadn’t put in my change of address to the internet post office, but it’s true. I’ve left plurk to go off in search of fortune & fame. Or at least something like that.

HawksRock & I have been having some good talks the last couple of days about reassessing where we put our time and energy. We literally have soooo much going on currently in our Real Fleshy Lives – like wedding planning, social engagements, tweetups, meetups & family fun stuffs. I don’t think we are gonna be on plurk or SL for a while… but never say never. Could be a break, a vaca, a hiatus, a sabbatical, could be forever, or whatev. Ya’ll know me though, I’m a social media junkie *taps the needle in her arm* and it would be a harsh detox for me to leave plurk completely without no other social outlet. Most of you know that we are on Twitter (if the right sidebar didn’t give it away first) and we’ve decided to mingle over there for awhile, we’ve started unpacking & hung a few pictures on the walls already. It’s sort of comfy there.

If you still want to catch up with me, feel free to get your ass on Twitter and find me. However a word of caution, I do talk a lot about real-life over there, so if this makes you queasy, dizzy, uncomfy, you develop a rash, or allergies, such as sneezing, watery eyes, and runny nose… please consult your virtual doctor immediately. Also if you have linked your plurk to your twitter, if you never check your twitter, I won’t/can’t respond to you.

Kissie Pops! Thanks!

Hey Dumbass!

Apparently not everyone gets this, so let me point out that this *here* is a blog post, on a blog (Free State of Mind).

On the right navigation bar is not a blog, it’s just a directory of feeds and keywords.

Over there you’ll see:

JellyBean’s Twats

That happens to be my Twitter account (that also accepts my plurks) that is being fed to the side bar by magical elves every time I tweet (post on Twitter). Are you following?

It’s not a BLOG, it’s a “tweet” or as I like to call it a “twat”.

So please if you are going to stalk me online and then proceed to bitch about what you see when you stalk me, refer to what it is in the proper terms so I can make sense out of your ramblings.

Thank you!

Social Media Meltdown = OMGWTFBBQ INTERNET APOCALYPSE

Posted in Observations, Social Media with tags , , , , , , on August 6, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

You know you’re addicted when you keep hitting refresh hoping to finally get through instead of seeing that same error message. Edge of your seat anxiety. Mashable reported Twitter being down since early this morning. I’ve read about it being overloaded, a vicious attack, a bug, etc. I don’t know factual specifics, nor do I really, honestly and truly care to.

Just stabilize already baby, I’m pulling for you.

Apparently due to Twitter’s inaccessibility, Facebook was starting to struggle from the massive flood of people trying to get their social media fix. Woah! We *are* a bunch of junkies, aren’t we? Thank goodness for good ole’ plurk – not always faithful, not always reliable, and always toting around a karma mistress who happens to be a huge bitch, but Hey! it’s there today.

I know this post is just blah blah blah – sorry!

It looks like Twitter is back up, but not fully feeling 100% better. Also apparently the outage was caused by Denial of Service Attack (DDoS). I don’t even know what that is. But welcome back Twitter – feel better soon!
