Twitter help, please. Answered


I don't Twitter (Tweet?), but I've just been told that "Twitter loves your monopod".

I don't suppose somebody could check to see if that is true?

Thank you in advance.

I meant rolling the dice rather then rolling one's eyes......which might hurt....Still, I think your suggestion is a bit dicey anyways.

Did they just nab your whole Instructable or is this with permission?

That's with permission - they asked very nicely (I think they might have joined just to look for projects).

I think they only copied and pasted, because it says"My boys have started getting into photography..."

And I dont think Kitemans name is Mark Langford(Though i could be wrong)

They did copy and past, but they also asked permission. Yes, that's my real-world name. See the link?

Excuse me. That's Mr. Langford to you, young man. Do that again, and I'll have the nuns give you a good paddling.

I don't think it generated much traffic, though. 2000+ views is hardly viral...

When I scanned through the posts, one said something like Damn, late for the monopod.

My first thought was; how do you make a living as a one-legged hooker?

The google search "site:twitter.com kiteman monopod" yielded no results, where and who exactly said this to you?

.  I know nothing about Twitter, but a Q&D search on their site for monopod and it looks like http://twitter.com/gambitfauri is the one that "tweeted" it.
