The Official Twitter Commands: Learn how to use Twitter more quickly and effectively for business and to communicate on the go with friends and family (that’s the Twitter Plan)

Monday, June 15, 2009

twitter is confusing computer confusedThere is no don’t ask don’t tell policy at the Twitter company.  So sayeth the Twitter Mods. But what does it all mean — and how do people who love the program seem to use Twitter so effectively?

Article excerpt advice directly from the marvelous moderators at Twitter.com that will help explain how the service can be used from home or on the go to help you build your business or keep in touch with friends and family all around.

The Official Twitter Text Commands

“Did you know: you can perform certain actions [while using Twitter], like following or marking a friend’s update as a favorite, by using the designated Twitter commands?  Use the commands listed below from your phone, the web update box, or your favorite third party application.” Yeah… and that means what?

Turning Twitter off and on: device notifications

Notifications are simple; in computer speak, “notifications” mean that an electronic gadget you own is going to notify you when another user somewhere in the online world has something to say to you. If you want to be kept tightly in the loop, you might want to have your notification settings turned on to warp drive mode, having all notes delivered right to your hand help phone by text so you will always know exactly what is happening on the computer in “real time” (as it happens) any place you go. However, if 24/7 communication is not for you and you are old enough to remember what life used to be like when you actually left home without your phone, then you might want to turn certain notification features off. Translation — when you scream and cry at all the constant barrage of talk, ideas, and noise and want yell out loudly into the void, “PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!”

Twitter says these are the definitions for the following options on their set up features (the back end of the site where you input your personal preferences settings choices to try to make the program do what you want):

  • ON: turns ALL phone notifications on.
  • OFF: turns ALL phone notifications off.
  • STOP, QUIT: stops all messages to your phone immediately
  • ON username: turns on notifications for a specific person on your phone. For example, ON alissa.
  • OFF username: turns off notifications for a specific person on your phone. For example, OFF blaine.
  • FOLLOW username: this command allows you to start receiving notifications for a specific person on your phone. Example: follow jeremy
  • LEAVE username: this command allows you to stop receiving notifications for a specific person on your phone. Example: leave benfu

Fun Stuff: friends, favorites, and stats!

Okay — so TWITTER is all the rage with the under 30 crowd. What happens to those of us who are part of the “them” crowd? You know who we are. We’re the ones that are old enough to remember that those people over 30 are not to be trusted and with that magical birthday age become one of THEM.

Well, we’re out here floundering about in the cyber world and are ready to give a shout out to let the Me generations know that the Greatest Generation, the Baby Boomers, the Disco Ducks, Gen X, and Gen Y are out here and that life over the birthday hump is not all that bad.

As 65 is becoming the new 40 with so many folks unable to retire in a recession economy, there is a new wave of interest in learning how to use online social networking programs to continue to promote business. That’s where online tutorials and how-to lists come into play. With Twitter being the new “thing to do” activity that needs to become a habit and part of most professional people’s day, this report on command-type features will help new Twitter users Tweet away effectively and efficiently each day.

Here’s what the mods at Twitter say:

There’s more to Twitter than OFF and ON! Use the commands below to send private messages, mark updates as favorites, or even remind someone to update their Twitter page if you’re wondering what they’re doing!
  • @username + message
  • directs a twitter at another person, and causes your twitter to save in their “replies” tab.
    Example: @meangrape I love that song too!

  • D username + message
  • sends a person a private message that goes to their device, and saves in their web archive.
    Example: d krissy want to pick a Jamba Juice for me while you’re there?

  • WHOIS username
  • retrieves the profile information for any public user on Twitter.
    Example: whois jack

  • GET username
  • retrieves the latest Twitter update posted by the person.
    Example: get goldman

  • NUDGE username
  • reminds a friend to update by asking what they’re doing on your behalf.
    Example: nudge biz

  • FAV username
  • marks a person’s last twitter as a favorite. (hint: reply to any update with FAV to mark it as a favorite if you’re receiving it in real time)
    Example: fav al3x

  • STATS
  • this command returns your number of followers, how many people you’re following, and your bio information.

  • INVITE phone number
  • will send an SMS invite to a friend’s mobile phone.
    Example: Invite 415 555 1212

Noteworthy Facts

  • using on/off username from your phone only stops notifications to the place the command comes from; you’ll still collect a person’s updates on the web.
  • using follow/leave username from your phone is the same as using on/off username
  • following someone from a phone for the first time will also cause you to follow them on the web
  • there is no way to stop following a person on the web without visiting their profile and removing them. The off, leave, stop, and quit commands will only disable updates for the device(s) from which they were sent.
  • you don’t have to use ON/OFF username from the phone, you can also set individual notifcations from a person’s profile page, or check your following page and manage all phone notification settings there.

Enthusiasts from Northern Virginia and DC Metro welcome Ferrari Club rallies to Gilligan’s Island Event in Chesapeake Bay Region

Thursday, June 4, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Excerpt from the Exotic Car Examiner

Members and friends of the Ferrari Club of the Mid-Atlantic region will be gathering Saturday June 6, 2009 [or Sunday June 7, 2009 if rain sets in on the Mid-Atlantic region] for a very special special afternoon car show event. Showcasing some of the finest Ferrari cars and creating an open and friendly outdoor Concourse BBQ environment, host Dennis Gilligan of Craftsman Developers (www.craftsmandevelopers.com) and family would like to invite all Ferrari fans and exotic car enthusiasts nationwide to attend his Italian auto-show Americana-inspired charity benefit for the Hospice of Chesapeake Bay. Visit www.autopopnews.com for more information.

Gilligan’s Island

Charity Event benefiting the Chesapeake Bay Hospice Center

www.hospicechesapeake.org
Saturday, June 6 (11:00 – 5:00pm)

Rallying at the Maryland waterfront estate of Dennis and Peggy Gilligan, car owners from all over the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic region will be showcasing more than 50 privileged Ferraris, all pristine and displayed Concours D’Elegance style at this second annual summer kick-off party event. There’s more news however, as the Italianizzato Club muscle has been hard at work again.

Just this week, host Dennis Gilligan has expressly agreed to extend the invitation for other brands of exotic cars to plan a day trip down to visit the estate and showcase their vehicles. That’s big news for owners of other marquees like Maserati, Lamborghini, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, and custom American muscle classics and exotics like the Ford GT. You see, originally, the rumor spread that Ferrari club guys were not going to allow non-owners to visit or other car models on the private acres if we tried to attend.

What did event host and property owner Dennis Gilligan say when he heard that other exotic car club members were not being included in the Ferrari event invitation? “Are you kidding? My place is huge. Everyone I know in the Ferrari club is friendly and loves all kinds of cars. Everybody is welcome”

The Gilligan family says, “Bring your Exotic Car (or boat for that matter as dock slips/anchorage are available) and share our home and pool overlooking Rock Creek. Reservations [on the main field] will be limited to the first 75 Exotic Cars and there is room to display 75 more” Dennis also indicated that there is ample parking for all methods of transportation on his land. All he’s asked is that the Ferrari field, as a Ferrari club sanctioned event, exotic or show cars, and daily driver commuter parking be kept separate for the purpose of photography and creating ambiance.

Included in the cost of admission is a catered lunch by Annapolis favorite barbecue restaurant Adam’s Ribs. Cost of entry includes beverages, “All the sodas and beer your can drink” says Dennis (sorry kids — 21 and up on the alcoholic beverages and yes, ID will be checked). The cost, just $45.00 per person, is fully tax deductible with 100% of the proceeds provided to the Hospice of the Chesapeake. You do not need to own or be showing an exotic car to participate in this event. All guests over the age of 16 are welcome; please contact the event host to make special arrangements for wheelchair or handicapped participants.

Early registrants planing to display cars sent check by postal mail to the event location address: Dennis Gilligan, 1316 Water Oak Drive, Pasadena, MD 21122. Late car show entries should immediately email the EXOTIC CAR EXAMINER at cafecars@gmail.com to express interest in joining the show this weekend (and include .jpg photos of their car along with make, model, year, and other pertinent contact details for the Gilligans to help be prepared for post-event coverage). Photos from the event should also be mailed in high resolution .jpg format and bundled in Zip file format.

Please email Dennis Gilligan (dennisgilligan@comcast.net)
or call 410-320-5878 for more information
about the Gilligan’s Island Event,
including for assistance with directions.

Expect Dennis Gilligan and son Conor of Craftsman Developers to help host an awards ceremony featuring People’s Choice and various door prizes.

Super Bowl Commercials Advertise High Tech Hulu Site to Watch TV from Online Computer Terminals; 3-D Commercials and Programs to Come with Glasses You Get from Major Metropolitan and Rural Area Stores; Local Movie Houses Prepare for 3-D “Coraline” to Come to Town

Sunday, February 1, 2009

Super Bowl 43 (played on February 1st, 2009) is history and the Pittsburgh Steelers have won. Now all the tech talk after the game is focused on the commercials… which have given Gen X and Gen Y hope that this television season will bring high tech changes to come. Commercials, commercials, oh those fabulous and funny Super Bowl commercials…

“Hulu” website promises the ability to watch major network television programming with no T.V. involved.

hulu_tv_online_via_home_office_desktop_laptop_computer_freeEnter Hulu.com, a new online service promising users can watch major network T.V. from their computer terminal desktops and laptops without needing to head to turn on their television sets at home. For those looking for the link, the service can be found at http://www.hulu.com.

Though Super Bowl night web surfing reported that HULU was going to be down for scheduled site maintenance, we’re optimistic that Alec Baldwin would not lie to us or change his tone. With the humorous Alien commercial promoting the psychological sales mechanism idea that watching your favorite programs will in fact not rot your brain but “soften it” in a positive way (so aliens like Baldwin can come scoop your brains out of your head with melon ballers so they can, “gobble them right up”), we expect the newly famous site to have Internet hits by the couch potato vegetable tons.

Next up– 3-D television and movies form the comfort of your own home.

3d_glasses_for_superbowl_and_chuck_by_intelThe classic three dimensional 1950’s & 60’s movie theater “red and blue glass” plastic and paper framed experiences, Jordie La Forge (from Star Trek the “Next Generation”) style Polarized Glasses used by movie-goers to watch Captain EO at EPCOT Center in Walt Disney World’s “Journey into Imagination” by Kodak (just one theme park over from Florida’s globally famous Magic Kingdom) have inspired multi-aged generations.

No longer a technophile or nerdy dream, “3-D TV” has hit the prime time big–with an appearance during the football mid-game show. When a commercial in the new space age friendly format made it onto our big screens and into our living rooms during the Super Bowl, people around the country cheered louder that when the Steelers made the longest play in Super Bowl History and made that 100 yard touchdown run to goal.

Not only were viewers treated to the opportunity to preview a 90 second “Monsters” 3-D  screening, we are promised an upcoming full fledged three dimensional show called “Chuck” due out Monday February 2nd, 2009.

CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW 3-D GLASSES WORK

Glasses Sponsored by Pepsi and SOBE can be found free at a variety of in-store locations and local displays.

Now, the trick–what to do if you have not got the proper glasses to see these technological home theater masterpieces? Simple. Head out first thing tomorrow to pick up your own family sets at the following common stores and locations across the country and the Baltimore Washington DC Metro region:

  • Target
  • Hess
  • Super Walmart

If you can’t find them easily or stores are out, call 1-800-646-2904 to have pairs delivered to your home. They might come after the programs, but better late than never; with the brilliant features of cable television reruns, DVR, TiVO, and other necessary beloved evils that allow us to keep pace with the time schedule of our modern world, it’s nearly assured that the glasses will come in handy later on down the road.

Movie Theaters offer 3-D Coraline at select theaters but expect 2-D “Coraline” to draw big crowds as well (despite being a technical notch below, storyline and film stars promise to make it family friendly and good). coraline-3d-movie-theaters

Until the glasses and plethora of new realistic home programs arrive, we’ll be satisfying more of our cravings that draw us  into the virtual world here in the Dulles Technology Corridor by visiting our home theaters in search of the new movie “Coraline” due out in February 2009. Expect to be dazzled with in depth images created by the same folks who brought us “A Nightmare Before Christmas”.  Click the links below to find information on your local show times and locations before you head out into the winter cold.
