I had this idea in the car this morning concerning all those "holy crap, I just saw something really amazing/funny/cool" moments at CONvergence. Wouldn't it be cool to get everyone to post them in real time? It'd be awesome to see something cool make its way through the hotel via peoples' reactions, and it'd be great to share it with people outside the con who are interested in such things.

So Cheb created the following Twitter thing, separate from the regular cvg2009 twitter thing, just for this purpose.

Please use/repost/enjoy. The more people we have doing this, the more awesome it'll be.

Now I just have to learn how to use twitter. No, I'm completely serious -- I'm clueless with this. If you can help me figure this stuff out today I'd be grateful.

Twitter is easy, you'll be fine. :) That is part of the charm! I haven't done much with it myself, I signed up a few months ago. Have you ever visited the website?

You can synch your phone to send text messages like so:

If you want to use Twitpic (www.twitpic.com) or Pic.im (www.pic.im) to send pictures to twitter, it generates a random email address. You take your pic, send it as an MMS message to the email, and it posts it to your twitter feed. you can also add text to your picture by putting in the SUBJECT LINE (not the text box!)

Let me know if you need more info. I'll be around.

Exactly. Twitter makes uninteresting people think others care about what is happening to them.
