4. I already did and didn't see anything different. Are there buffers? Does it actually run real-time?

3. I've got a few hashtags about wall street scrolling past in my feed.
I'll check in if that changes.

No one knows who is actually tweeting for @USDayofRage. Don't trust everything they say. #Occupywallstreet #ows #sep17 #s17 #takewallstreet

10. #occupywallstreet is being blocked, according to Twitter, but
Blocked from trending according to this:

@NewLeftProject
NewLeftProject
Apparently #occupywallstreet is being blocked from trending, so use #takewallstreet instead. (twitter.com/#!/OccupyWallS)

@OccupyWallSt
Occupy Wall St.
4 hours ago : #takewallstreet is what we'll use!



So use #takewallstreet instead apparently. They should know you can't censor the social media unless you do what Mubarak did, shut it down.

19. I don't know. I can't see how they can stop people from using
the tag and I'm also a bit leery about reports that they are. Eg, the tweet I posted above, don't know how reliable it is. They could do something like that, tell people to use a different hashtag and diminish the trend that way. Although I think that would only create two trends and not do much damage.

So, unless you are familiar with the source on Twitter, which I an not in this case, it's hard to tell what is true or what is not at this point.

12. I read that somewhere else this morning.
I don't do Twitter, so I don't know.

18. Blue, you'd love twitter.
Instead of going to 25 websites to keep up with people you like, you just set your account to receive their tweets. No maintenance, no time commitment.

22. Of course. I just have a link in my browser
Edited on Sat Sep-17-11 04:17 PM by EFerrari
and use that.

It takes about a minute to set up the account.

And then, the whole deal is just finding whose tweets you want to get, "following" them so they will go into your stream. Once you choose them, they all come to you.

I have some friends on Facebook and have an account there but it's just so much WORK that I don't go there very often. Twitter is the opposite.

23. Shannyn Moore here always says
that Facebook is the gateway drug for Twitter. :) But you've convinced me I need to do it because there are things I like to follow. Thanks for the encouragement.
