Pinned tweets, too. People do that? They realise that nobody that uses a twitter client that isn't the actual website will ever see it, right? And clearly only crazy people who like adverts and promoted tweets use the twitter website.

Huh? If you visit someone's profile on the Twitter app it will be the first tweet you see.

I thought I had the Twitter app buried deep somewhere on my phone, but I don't. I just have Tweetbot.

I use the official Twitter app but that's because I'm on Windows Phone and my choices are limited.

I use both the website and the android app. Does that mean I am double the idiot?

Probably don't need to answer that question.

Does anyone else follow @suekichiii on twitter?

If you don't, you should. It's all in Japanese but whoever is behind it is a genius. They take pictures of toys that tell funny stories mainly based around Freddie Mercury and Bruce Lee.

It's brilliant. Look out for the karaoke session featuring Michael Jackson!

If you don't understand Japanese, it may be for the best - There are some bad puns in there.

Hello.

I need a list of twitter names that used a specific hashtag. Before I set someone off doing it by hand, is there a quicker way?

If you've got Chrome you could try this:

Visit
Code:
https://twitter.com/search?l=&q=%23[YOUR HASHTAG HERE]&src=typd&lang=en-gb


Press F12, and make sure 'console' is chosen from the tabs at the top. Copy and paste this into the console and press enter:
Code:
var foo = ''; $(".username").each(function() { foo += $(this).text() + "," }); foo;

Copy and paste the results.

Note this will only get you what's on the screen, so scroll down until you've got everything you want.

The whole "Your friend liked this!" thing on twitter can be interesting, and I've found some interesting accounts to follow and some cool links and pics. I've also found that one of my old school friends likes transexual adult-baby porn, which was a bit of a shock.

If you stop posting pics of yourself then he'll stop liking them.

Without fail, one of the three recommendations on my Twitter account will be Celia Imrie. I guess it's because I follow the Victoria Wood QOTD account

I've closed my twitter account (@mrdavpaz) as I was only using it to follow the kid's school account. The school was auditing who was following the Reception class account, couldn't recognise me from the name, looked through my recent posts, found a few swears and promptly blocked me. Sigh.

So I'm going to just use my "work" account for everything.

You're not wrong. Luckily, the other teacher in MicroPaz's year group is a 24 year old recent graduate, so she's a bit more savvy. Apparently she's on holiday this week though. Which is another thing... since when do teacher's get term time holidays?

It might possibly be a honeymoon though. But still.

When i was a teacher of 5th grade on 2010, the kids had a class every 15 days or something to educate them on how to use the internet. They learned how to deal with "trolls", "griefers", how to use social media and so. I was really impressed on how forward thinking that was. I'm pretty sure those classes were eliminated with the austerity measures...
