A chronology of recent tweets on my Twitter.com account.

Currently addicted to Twittter — via JournoTwit — and my own alltop.com page. This has something to do with the fact that I have a deadline.

October 25, 2009, 9:34 PM:
On top of the fact that I like being challenged to say what I want to say in just exactly 160 characters. No more, no less. So there you go.

October 25, 2009, 9:40 PM:
It’s 140, not 160 characters as earlier mentioned, as I had a previous affinity with the number, it being my previous ipod mp3 sampling rate

October 25, 2009, 9:44 PM:

You’ve got Gmail

Pop-up box shows Gmail's new enhancement, Drag and Drop Labels

Pop-up box shows Gmail's new enhancement, Drag and Drop Labels, which allow users to better organize their messages

Never have I been as enthusiastic about being a Gmail user as I am now.
Or at least not since five years ago when a close friend — someone whom I’ve shared a beer with for roughly half my life — gave me an invitation to open my very own Gmail account.

How Facebook saved my social life

A portion of the Facebook account of this blogger, which may prove to be boring to some.

Shown is the Facebook account of this blogger, which may prove to be boring to some.

Facebook is the new Friendster.
That’s what I told a friend of mine.
Or more accurately, that’s what I posted on his wall when he said that people who didn’t share our respect for both the Filipino and English languages — such as it was — were all set to invade and conquer our favorite social networking site.
