The Trouble with Twitter?

Hello All ๐Ÿ™‚

I know, I know, It’s been awhile since my last post – lol Thanks for the emails, you know who you are ๐Ÿ˜‰ – I’ve been pretty busy lately/hurt my middle finger badly in a random ice/glass related incident ๐Ÿ˜› So my typing isnt at it’s usual speed/efficiency and I haven’t felt the want to bother ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Good News is that I’ve been inspired by some randomness I’ve been up to lately..Twitter. (http://www.twitter.com/Zenobie) ๐Ÿ˜›

Yea, I’ve really been getting into it, somehow it’s become addicting to post random 140 character thoughts, status’s and replies ๐Ÿ˜› Mostly I believe, or atleast for my own taste and reasons, because of the vast community which is filled with random and brilliant people. Everyone from that guy on his cell phone talking about his latte from Starbucks to such celebs as Stephen Fry, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Tony Hawk, Stephen Colbert, Ellen and Much more…

It gives such a broad and wonderful perspective of people’s lives. I’ve learned in the past few weeks some pretty random but yet fantastic things. Including that most celebs really are down to earth and not what the media makes them out to be. Just the other day, While Demi was steaming Ashton’s suit for him he snuck a snap shot of her bending over in her “granny panties” onto Twitter with only “shh don’t tell wifey” she replied with basically “oh that ashton” and they just laughed it off. I think that’s fantastic considering 10 years ago she was making loads of money to share that with the world in Striptease

Twitter has gone from a playground for bored geeks to one of the leading social and media outlets to date. News networks etc are using Twitter to connect with veiwers, even John McCain and George Stephanopalous (I spell) had a random public interveiw on Twitter…

In fact it’s even perhaps getting out of control? Some worry that with more users the less safe and amusing it will become. Advertisers can create accounts to spam Tweeps (Twitter Lingo FTW) Privacy becomes less available because the default is that all your messages are shared on a public timeline. Everyone who follows you, and who follows them, and so on, can easily read your tweets. Fact is tho, its all about personal responsibility. If you don’t want the world to know something, don’t Tweet it. If you think its possible for something to perhaps bite you in the ass, then Don’t bother. If you care.

Twitter is about being random and sharing your thoughts. Freedom of Speech is a wonderful thing, even if it isn’t uniform around the World. I mostly just have a good hearted laugh about it all because it’s just one of those things that shouldnt be taken to seriously. Yet when Twitter Glitches or goes down with the Fail Whale (see the Twouble with Twitters video below) its the end of the world in theย  twitterverse ๐Ÿ˜‰ (not quite as bad in said video) but even Ive found myself incredibly annoyed when my replies etc don’t show up for some random reason.

But really, Twitter is brilliant, especially if you take it for what it is. A random way for people around the world to share and enjoy each other’s 140 character thoughts etc. Nothing wrong with that at all in my opinion. Gives insight and perspecitive, its amusing and best of all, Free.

And on that note I leave with you the infamous Twouble with Twitter video from Current.com and A clip from the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, A segment by Samantha Bee as she explains the Twitter Frenzy from her perspective ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!

Peace! Xo ๐Ÿ˜‰


The Great Muppet Caper

First of all I feel I must start with a Hell Ya! (This news really make’s me giddy.)

Family guy is extending its full-episode “Star Wars” parodies to the third film, “Return of the Jedi.”

The cast completed a read yesterday for the “Jedi” spoof script, which is tentatively titled โ€œEpisode VI: The Great Muppet Caper” (Ewok jokes never get old).

The popular hit’s spoof of “A New Hope” titled Blue Harvest, was one of the show’s all-time top-rated episodes and producer 20th Century Fox sold the movie as a stand-alone DVD.ย  *This blogger owns it ofcourse ;)* For a company like Fox, nothing beats having an episode so desirable that they can sell it solo, as it were, without needing to include the rest of the season.

The show’s previously announced parody of “The Empire Strikes Back” is titled “Something-Something-Something Dark Side.” Unfortunately, Fox won’t air “Dark Side” until the fall. But with Carrie Fisher playing a recurring role on “Family Guy” as Peter Griffin’s boss, there’s some hope around the show’s campfire that she’ll do a voiceover in the “Empire” spoof (not as Princess Leia, since Lois plays Leia, but as another character…)

Anyone else excited?
