The Celeb Tweet That Explained How The Internet works

I have a new hero, and her name is Gabourey Sidibe. I made the mistake of watching the move Precious on an airplane, and spent a couple of hours sobbing all over my seatmates. Gabourey was phenomenal in a very ugly story about abuse, rape, and poverty. And it was her first movie role. And […]

Is HootSuite A Better Alternative To TweetDeck?

My HootSuite Dashboard I’ve been a loyal user of TweetDeck for years (first the desktop version, then the Chrome version), but I finally pulled the plug today. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, TweetDeck is a third-party app used mainly for twitter – you can use Twitter through TweetDeck instead of directly on […]

Randomosity: Starry Night Edition

I’ve always loved watching dominoes fall, but this video is especially cool for several reasons. One, I just love Van Gogh’s Starry Night. It’s one of the rare pieces of art that doesn’t make me say “blech!” when I see it on an umbrella. Two, I’m fascinated by the method this person is using to […]

Randomosity: Frivolous Lawsuit Edition

Every frivolous lawsuit should be handled this way. Funny site The Oatmeal had their stuff stolen by another site, and then that other site had the audacity demand $20K for what The Oatmeal said about them. And then things got hilarious. I make decent stove-top popcorn (when I’m not munching on my favorite dieting crutch, […]

The Twitter clean-up continues with Proxlet

[UPDATE: I’ve had to uninstall Proxlet from my Tweetdeck account. It was preventing me from getting DMs on my computer. It’s still working very well on, so I guess when I want to catch up on Twitter without all of the Triberr noise I’ll have to do it there. Bummer.] So yesterday I wrote […]

Cleaning up twitter with Just Unfollow

So you’re on twitter and you want to get more out of it. The easiest way is to trim the fat – unfollow all of those accounts that aren’t adding anything to your tweetstream. I just did this and feel lighter. 1,350 followers lighter, in fact. I did two separate things: I unfollowed just about […]

Racist, homophobic, completely offensive fake Applebee’s twitter account looks like the real thing

[Note: sometime Thursday (9/8) evening the owner of the twitter account in question changed his page drastically, and it no longer resembles the official Applebee’s twitter account in any way.] There are tons of fake twitter accounts out there. Most of them exist as some kind of obvious parody of their subject, and many of […]

find out which tweeps you’re blocking on twitter, you may be surprised!

So a couple weeks ago I met up with someone whom, at this point, I would consider a real-life friend, not just an online acquaintance. After all, my daughter and @MacaroniKidNYC’s daughter have completely bonded at several blogging events and trips. In fact, to an almost creepy degree (I’ll let Monica share those stories in […]

I may be balding, but at least I’m rocking the glasses

Last night, for reasons I can’t figure out, TweetDeck decided to change my picture. At least I look happy. Originally posted on Selfish Mom.
