I'm a Twit  
Yes, Ren did it and now I am so let's all hope that Ren doesn't decide it's cool to jump off a bridge or something.

I've set the thing to post  here once a day (I think). I haven't had a lot to post that was worth an entire blog post other than fanfic recs and I'm holding off on doing those until I finish fixing the tags on the old entries so I'm sure I'm not reposting something. I do think of lots of short things during the day that I usually bug Christina with on IM that would be good for Tweets and several of those might make a good post so I"m trying it out.

First auto post of Tweets should pop up here at 7 Eastern time. Just siged up so I haven't done anything but one testing Tweet so far.

Please make sure those auto-posted Tweets are behind an LJ-cut? Pwease? Non-cut tweetspam makes Feni kinda stabbity.

I'd love to but I haven't figured out how to yet. Don't worry, I don't plan on doing more than testing it until I can figure it out. I want to be able to do that and have it do tags, if possible.

ETA: I found a tutorial that claims to show me how so I'm going to follow directions and then do another single tweet tomorrow and we'll see what pops up tomorrow evening.

*crosses fingers that it works* KnittingKnots puts her tweetspam behind an LJ-cut, so it must be possible and is highly appreciated by people like me who don't want to read other people's IM-like conversations, because it feels like an invasion of privacy.

I don't plan on using Twitter that way. If I do end up having an IM type conversation with it that's not in private messages then I plan on turning off the Loud Twitter post before it goes through or else editing it once it does post.

I have two different IM programs if I want to IM people and I really don't want even public IM conversations clogging up my blog.

My plan is to use this to post links to cool stuff, share fun quotes, fic recommendations, etc as I come across them. That is, to really microblog instead of waiting until I have enough stuff for a "real post" and then forgetting about it and not posting at all.

Really, the sort of stuff I email you with sometimes anyway.

oh I see...heh heh heh, well, I know a life-endangering game even non-mortals find dangerous - it's called Guess the Inu-Bishie's Sex and you can imagine how it's played. and what the risks are >:D
