Was already aware of this being possible that’s why I signed up under an alternate email not my main so I’m safe the alternate is always filled with spam most of the time lol.

That’s actually quite a clever move. :clap:

I’m sure a lot of people wouldn’t think of things like that.

If there’s anyone who uses the same username/password for multiple sites, it would be wise to change these as well, since someone now presumably knows your login info for those sites, too.

I’m not sure I understand that one. :confused:

Plenty of our articles are more than 140 characters and reviews etc run into thousands.

Why would you be limited to only 140 characters?

That is how many are allowed in a ‘Tweet’. :flower:

They did not get mine since I do not have it.

Nor mine because most times I have trouble condensing what I consider “important to say” into 1000characters let alone 140.

a Friend recently commented that he was going to stop using facebook and switch to twitter.
My immediate response was “MY GOD! facebook isn’t shallow and superficial enough for you?”

I have a facebook account (which I studiously ignore) becase several family members were aggrevatingly persistantly insistant.

Now they gripe because I don’t log on or reply… some of them stopped
when I told them to "Go fornicate an angry porcupine in a bathtub full of lemonade made with seawater.

The rest were to shalllow and superficial to understand… I think they moved onto twitter.

I have wondered about the programmer’s mentality that made him think, “A 140 character limit is all that’s needed.”

And that this limitation is popular is far more frightening than realizing some peabrain actually thought of this in the first place. And to think, I still scoff at Facebook’s puny limits on Thought and Communication!

I’m looking for Orwellian reductions, too. “We found most messages easily fit in 80 characters, so that’s our new limit.” (They can charge money for extra characters, and then anyone reading those can also be charged - what a revenue stream!!)

(OK, well, a “stream” of something.)

Then down to 64, then 32. Georgie argued that one word would be eventually all that’s necessary for his idealized society.

With enough talking heads popularizing 32, or even 24 or 16, I think this would give us a far better indication of the vast intelligence that’s growing out there.

Does bleach work on it, too?
