Recruiting the Facebook Generation via Tweethole

Recruiting the Facebook Generation via Tweethole

What can we learn from the denizens of the tweethole about how to do this thing?

Hannah Sung and the Half-Baked Tweet

“Everyone knows that when fake Twitter accounts make love, the entire Internet makes love with them”

And though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver. For no mere mortal can resist the evil of the Twitter

For indeed it is another journey down the Tweethole. @petermansbridg, is that you?

The tweeting wounded

What was there to be unsure about, luvmuffin? Yesterday was a rotten day. What makes it worse is that when someone is classified as ‘redundant,’ it’s not over yet. If they’re in the union, they get a chance to bump someone out who’s not in the union, or who has less seniority. Just as long […]

Hey you! Tech nuts!

Who you calling tech nuts, Dianne Buckner? Look, I don’t have any time for the Facebook Phenomenon right now. I’m right in the middle of the Tweethole Meltdown. And I’ve a whole bag of tweets to get through before the Amazon buys twitter and teamakers and puts it all on the Big Kindle and behind […]

Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster. And when you gaze long into the tweethole, the tweethole also gazes into you

Social Media Professionals and Nietzsche will tell you that you only get out of social media what you put into it. So it goes without saying that when you make fun of the twitter people, sooner or later you become that which you made fun of. “That site,” my friends, is this site. And noizangel […]

Tweethole stimulus package

Welcome back, web 2.0 social media fans! Unfortunately, there are no twitter blockings to report this week. But we roll in stealth mode these days, ie: not logged in, so we might’ve missed one. If you’re blocking us, or spot a prime tweethole in the wild, be sure to DM @teamakers so we can get […]

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Twitter

It’s true that former President Robert Rabinovitch wasn’t exactly a “people person.” Also, he knew nothing about broadcasting. And as a bureaucrat, he got us sweet dick-all from Ottawa. This website busted his balls repeatedly but they were clearly balls that needed busting. The current president, Mr. H. Lacroix, is a different story altogether. I […]

Tweets of ill repute

Good morning, social media fans, and welcome back to opensource happyland. WTF! Blocked! By local television scribe and online diarist Denis McGrath! It’s a heywriterblock! It’s an outrage! What did I ever do to him? Come to think of it, he’s been distant ever since we made fun of his weight. And baldness. And criticized […]

Billy Bob Twits 1.0

Down into the cess-laden twit-pit we go! Hopefully Twitter can provide some much needed context on the whole Billy Bob / Jian flap that has taken the world by storm … As Don, Peter and Shelagh always used to say, “happy Thursday!” Wow. Brave twittering, Franca. I heard Jian beat the shit out of the […]

Further down the tweethole

The twitter people have criticized these posts for doing it wrong. Tweets are sacrosanct and must be taken in context, they say. Tweets should not be fodder for cheap laffs. They tell me I’m too old and I don’t “get it.” But nothing could be further from the truth. I get it. It’s all about […]


Town hall twits

Today’s town hall was the most tweeted CBC event in recent memory. These tweets have a special significance for those of us in Canadian media, as we are constantly told that we are dinosaurs and in the future all our news will be tweeted by real people with no agenda and you won’t even need […]

Where innovation goes to die

It’s a well known fact that on any given moment there are at least 3 Technology Conferences or Unconferences going on in Toronto at once. These are places for underemployed nerds and “Social Media Experts” to gather and discuss the future. This future usually involves their services. They must, at all cost, be Twittered. This […]
