Sigh

I have concluded the most interesting things to happen to me/do in the last two days fall under the heading of, variously, only remotely interesting if you are me or one of the people I interact with weekly, entirely too delicate to blog about without landing on either rude or overweeningly sensitive, or only interesting if you follow the exact same stuff I do, which doesn’t even apply to Stingray. Perhaps content will appear if something bloggably interesting happens in the next four hours or I saddle up a new hobbyhorse for crusadin’ times.

So, a question: has the “view conversation” function basically been nonfunctional on Twitter for the last few weeks for anyone else? Is it a “don’t have a Twitter account” thing they decided to implement for Reasons? I don’t do Twitter, but I watch the Twitters of a lot of people who are a lot funnier in 140 characters than I am, and watching people talk nonsense to the winds and walls has been a less fun experience than the original one.

    Works for me.

    Firefox 13, Linux, do have Twitter and am signed in.

    I’ve been having issues with the conversation thingie on Twitter too. I thought it was just me. I generally check Twitter through my phone on Tweetcaster.

    Basically non-functional for me on two different machines running Firefox. I have not checked Safari yet. I also do not have a Twitter account.

    Works for me on Safari — I have an account, though, and everyone I talk to (including self) is locked, so I can’t test what happened when signed out.

    “two days”?

    I’m struggling to think of anything that’s happened to me in the last ten years that has been anything more than just about “only remotely interesting if you are me”. Sigh!!!!

    I tried to ‘get a life’ once but the shop didn’t have one in my size.

    Oh, and what’s a Twitter?

    Heh, I was wondering the same thing about the Twitter conversation feature this morning. It’s made a lot of the SDCC geekery less followable this week.
