Twits and Twitter(s) !

Keep receiving these invites to keep up with mates on Twitter. You may wonder what it is...

The official blurb is "Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?"

According to Wiki it's "a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users' updates, tweets, which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length."


1) It costs me hard cold cash every time I send a SMS!
2) Tried signing on and I'm told...

3) Fine... Clicked forgot password and...

4) Helpdesk or support. I'd be that lucky. One has to sign in to be able to access support, and that I can't do!

Yeah I turned off the oh-so-helpful SMS portion of the equation long ago.

I actually use Twitter 90% from my laptop. On my phone I do post updates but never through SMS...

Do you have a data service for your phone? Whatever phone you have, I'm sure there's a Twitter app for it by now that uses your data service.

I refuse to do any of that. No MySpace, No Facebook, no texting, no - blogging is as technical as I'm willing to get ! There's a reason God invented the telephone to keep in touch...

Hey Nthmost, fortunately I do have free unlimited data (Blackberry thing) but I'm kinda locked out of Twitter. But then I'm one of those stubborn sob and will keep lobbing grenades into that Twitter trench till I get somewhere.

Refuse to start a new email account!

Hi Annie. At least you won't be getting finger cramps :)

Maybe it's something to do with the Young Werther in California thats already there?

Hi Trix, finally problem solved... found this hidden message.

"Account restoration is temporarily unavailable for some users. If you have already deleted your account, you'll be unable to use your former user name and email address with a new Twitter account. Visit the Twitter Status Blog for updates."

Now let's see if I can reclaim my account. Wish I were that guy in California ;)
