digitalmars.D.announce - The 10k Twitter Target

reply Mike Parker <aldacron gmail.com> writes:
Lately, we've seen a steadily increasing trend of new followers 
on Twitter. We're closing in on the totally arbitrary yet 
emotionally significant number of 10,000. I was just thinking how 
cool it would be to hit that number before or during DConf.

Now that my move is behind me and I'm settling in to my new 
house, I have more time to stay on top of things (note that 
"more" does not necessarily equate to "enough"). I'll try to keep 
the tweet stream more active than usual over the coming two+ 
weeks, even while I'm bopping around Germany in the week prior to 
the conference.

If you have a Twitter handle, it would help us out to retweet 
anything interesting you see on  D_Programming. If you aren't 
following us, it would help us out even more for you to become a 
statistic! Let's see if we can turn that 9,781 (as I write this) 
into 10,000 before the Hackathon.

Twitter will get your pass that with some few $$ :)

The link in the navbar should probably link to this twitter handle rather than the hash tag.

Each time i register to tweeter i got locked for no reasons. This happened yesterday again WHILE writing the first message. This is a problem when you don't own a smart-phone... I think people should seriously stop using this service, they don't realize but there are probably a bunch of psychos at the top of hierarchy of this company. These abusive lockings are a direct representation of their madness.

I agree, which is why I never even bothered to sign up and last year stopped checking the 3-4 people's streams I used to follow. However, like it or not, it is a popular platform, just like reddit, so it would be irresponsible for D and Mike not to market and publicize there. When they go out of business, we won't have that problem anymore.
