the internet is all a Twitter
« on: 30 Nov 2008, 23:55 »

...with the sounds of Pintsize downloading more Furry hentai.

I love this extension of the webcomic. It is also a little sad, however, that fictional characters and their creator comprise of my entire Twitter following group, save for one friend.

Or, at least, it would be sad had they not been from Q.C.

The question is, who's behind the Twitter accounts? Genius that they are.. I love it.

Good luck keeping this going, Jeph. Looks like it'll take a lot of effort.

I just read through all the Twitter conversations and now I get them all. I don't look forward to a week from now when I revisit the pages and there are hundreds of new Twitters (Twits? Twats?) that I have to read through.

This is putting storytelling to the whole new level.

They are called tweets.

On reflection, of course, I think that twits and twats are also pretty good names for them.

Jeph has links to all of the twitter accounts on the Nov.30th note in the sidebar. He linked the words in the phrase 'I seem to be losing my mind'.

At this rate, Pintsize will result in me getting banned from my university's internet (I'm clicking the links in my room, not in public, obviously) . Well, I suppose it's all legal, but I think furry porn falls under "vulgar content".

If you managed to read the QC Twitter rules, you would know not to click on anything Pintsize posts.  It's actually listed as a rule.

I linked them all from character list on the wikipedia page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Questionable_Content#Characters, but the edit got undone for "spamvertising" :(

I don't want to sign up for a twitter account; I've subscribed to all the RSS feeds in thunderbird, but I'd really prefer to see all the tweets in one feed in chronological order - maybe Jeph could set up a QC RSS feed aggregator just for these? Perhaps planet.questionablecontent.net or something similar.

what? but where's the fun in that-there's no fun in having to open windows/tabs for each twitter feed in order to keep track of what was said to who.

Like reading comments on two friends webpages, trying to get the whole story.

I think your kinda SOL on that one.  Besides, having the Twitter account isn't all that bad.  I've set up countless people on that site.  And once I found out that not only Jeph as one, but so do the main characters from QC, I was so excited.  But yeah, if you set up an account and follow all the characters, you can see everyone in one streamlined timeline.  And there are countless applications that you can run to have your tweets sent to whereever.  You can even send them to your phone!!  It was quite fun to have Hanners sock counting sent to my phone.  I thought I was going to die from laughter during that whole thing.
