My Latest Twitter Updates

  • She said "irregardless"… #Stateline Victoria #
  • @TroyRoderick Josie Taylor, the host. #
  • The FAQ by @ReallyVirtual is a scream. http://auspol.info/mhAsm5 – "There is a big difference between 'seeing' and 'hearing'… #
  • 24-hour cable news channels struggling over bin Laden: http://auspol.info/m1HBJh (via @peterjblack) #
  • @kristinmoore2 But beautiful ridicule of the idiocy. #
  • Now this is one Twitter analytics site I can actually take seriously: http://auspol.info/jxlshu #
  • @djmattyg007 And you only swear like Gordon Ramsay! #
  • @RicRaftis http://auspol.info/mhZhyR #
  • Why is social media still news? http://auspol.info/l1MFuh – a variation on my theme here: http://auspol.info/mPrsuA #
  • @DanielleCronin Jack Bauer? http://auspol.info/ja7g4j #
  • "Irregardless" on the ABC and now I've just heard "infeuding" on Channel 9. #
  • @cjjosh Not sure what to make of that… BTW I forgot to thank you for alerting me to the Hansard link. I've been waiting for that. #
  • @carolduncan That's not too bad compared to some of the others! #
  • RT @RicRaftis: [UPDATED] The 35 best obnoxious responses to misspellings on Facebook. http://ping.fm/fcHtp #
  • @RicRaftis That's magnificent! #
  • @VinnieTaskunas That's when you're set upon by a lot of people. It's allowed in football. #
  • @DanielleCronin Wasn't it announced on Twitter that he led the raid? #
  • RT @DanielleCronin: What would Jack Bauer have thought of the Bin Laden raid? http://bit.ly/kNIBmn (WSJ) #
  • @OldRedRooster Hehe… jumps racing. The next question to the minister began, "How many more horses have to die…" #
  • @OldRedRooster And, yes, I did notice… #
  • @meadea Except he's only got 105,000 followers. Took 3 days to get there, no significant increase in last 3 days. He's had his 15 minutes. #
  • @kristoforlawson @meadea No he didn't – and his FAQ is the most scathing putdown of the media that we've seen in a long time. #
  • @meadea He's not following anyone back, engaging with few of them. Classic case of follower numbers telling us nothing about Twitter usage. #
  • @NeilMcMahon @Kimbo_Ramplin @meadea He's a classic case of an ordinary citizen who encounters the media and realises it's not to be trusted. #
  • @meadea Retweets, @mentions, engagement – but it's impossible to measure in my view. Those analytics sites purporting to do so are garbage. #
  • @meadea Ever looked at your followers? I have 4741 right now but I'd say a couple of hundred at most are genuine followers interested in me. #
  • @meadea At any given moment, most of our followers are not here. Stats show most never tweet, most have fewer than 10 tweets, etc. #
  • @meadea And many people would disappear from Twitter if they weren't told their follower numbers. Narcissism rampant! #
  • @meadea I suspect most people lurk – it's the 90-10-1 rule. See Jakob Nielsen http://auspol.info/ewwCYh #
  • .@angelamaguire The only measure I've got is to track clicks on links. Definitely proves there are lots of lurkers like your good self. #
  • @angelamaguire It's not a criticism either, by the way. I often lurk, especially when I'm working. #
  • @angelamaguire I just think it's more of a broadcast medium than is generally acknowledged. Its beauty is it can be what you want it to be. #
  • @rod_benson And he hasn't tweeted since the day after Anzac Day! #
  • Anyone got any thoughts on the best forum software to use on a WordPress site? bbPress? #
  • @charlyjl I was just reading about it here: http://auspol.info/j3C3ho – I haven't run a forum for years and it's all changed. #
  • @charlyjl You're busy these days, judging by your newsletters? Things well? #
  • Imagine if Wilkie could actually get a coalition member or two to cross the floor on pre-commitment for pokies! #Lateline #
  • I've been reading the Oct 3, 1941 House of Reps debate that brought down the Fadden minority government. Interesting parallels. #
  • The Hansard is here: http://auspol.info/jc5ZDE – APH now provides all Hansards back to 1901. #
  • @Paris_David Yes, well…! #
  • The Politics of Solipsism: http://auspol.info/iDlh1D – David Brooks on tensions between democracy and republicanism. #
  • Here's a remarkable statistic: the 1941 Parliament contained 10 past, present & future prime ministers. 70 years later, we're only up to 27. #
  • Unless there's a political shift, Gen Y won't come to the party: http://auspol.info/iua6XJ – Bella Counihan on young people joining parties. #
  • @urbancreature Mainstream media, mainstream parties… #
  • The Victoria Police story, according to The Age: http://auspol.info/mxNeot #
  • @guruann Byzantine, isn't it? But always worth following for devotees of hard politics. #
  • We have another Keating letter: http://auspol.info/l6LbZu (PDF) – "Let me tell you, I am not to be muzzled." #
  • @deniswright We all make typos but I think the best ones in that list are simply illiterate. I'm still taken with the War on Labia… #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin We expect nothing less than gold from a man who's run the two great departments of state in this country… #
  • @mtc01 *Sigh* #
  • AV is getting thrashed in the early counting… #
  • Jessica Irvine has the inside scoop on the budget lock-up: http://auspol.info/kmiT6q #
  • @JuliusFlywheel I don't think it ever stood a chance from what I could tell. #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin Yes, Sky has 70-30, still very early but it ain't gonna get there. #
  • @NeilMcMahon Saw your earlier comment about the night of 9/11 – is that totally impracticable with outsourcing? #
  • @NeilMcMahon How do they do the online stuff? #
  • @NeilMcMahon How much input does a reporter have after the copy has been submitted? Or is the value in the down-time contact? #
  • @NeilMcMahon The Pagemasters operation: all computer-based? #
  • AV No vote is now 2.5 million, 1.1 million for Yes with about 25% counted. Not a single area voting in favour. #
