World Pees

Last night I came across this LOL-worthy status on Aditya’s Wall (not the wall people pee on) and pasted it on my twitter page and Zzzzz’ed! This morning I woke up at my non-regular time, 6:00 AM & do the first thing like I always do (which fyi, is not a pee routine) : check my mobile for messages and calls… &  ._O 20 + messages from those retweets of this pees of tweet. (since my mobile no is linked to my twitter account) And, surprisingly one person had congratulated me for being on the top tweets (On the home page of twitter the top tweets are listed from all over the world) Wow, super cool! After a early morning walk (which was awesome but for the fact I had to walk by walls where Disappointed smile NevaMind ) , here  I am checking out the no of retweets on twitter web:A 100+ !! Wow! Well enough yappa yappa, here’s the one that marks a FIRST on twitter for me :

LinkedIn = I pee well.

Twitter = I need to pee.

Facebook = I peed!

Foursquare = I’m peeing here.

Quora = Why am I peeing? (Via EffBee)

Fellow tweeps & I had a few more to add to that list:

MySpace = listen to me pee.

StumbleUpon = I just found a great place to pee

Flickr = look at my pee through the years.

YouTube = Tell people their pee is fake.

Orkut : Can we have fraandship over pee?

And Wow, Somebody has translated that to Spanish / German (I’m not sure what)

That’s brings us to the end of what this is. But,  “Will there ever be World Peace?” read on. Open-mouthed smile

Here’s the funny thing about this question: nearly everybody has an opinion, either “yes” or “no” or  “Whatever” or “Not until Rajin Kanth/ Chuck Norris takes over the world”,  But where do all those opinions come from? I say they come from the past. They’re projections of our past war-torn world.

Yes, it’s wise to let the past inform us, but it’s crippling to let the past constrain the possibilities for the future.

The future HAS NOT HAPPENED YET. .. it’s undefined, undetermined, uncharted. It’s virgin snow, there are no tracks there for us to follow, unless we mistake the past for the future.
So I don’t know if we’ll have world peace ever or not. But I know that as long as we keep taking the past and laying it out into the future, and just following those same old tired tracks again, we’ll keep getting more of the same: war.

“When the power of love overcomes the love for power, the world will know peace.” quoting my good friend Jimi Hendrix there!
YES! I think eventually somewhere someday there will be world peace.

FunFact # 3411926 : If the Russian word “mir” means both “world” & “peace”, one would be wondering “How in the world do they say ‘world peace’?” “mir mir”? I hope not, one might be confused and translated it as “world world” or “peace peace”. Smile with tongue out

The reason I was pushed to write this post is not the fact I got a 100+ RTs but the realization, that it IS possible. Twitter,you made my day (Well not totally, an hour possibly) Smile

 

PeACE,

TWHY TWOULD TWOU TWUSE TWITTER ??

Incase you can comprehend the title

a) you are a killer cryptographer \m/ (or)

b) you are one among the millions who use twitter!

I dedicate to this “twspecial twost” to many of my not-so-twitsavvy pals who I think should use Twitter ,which is without a doubt the best way to share and discover what is happening right now.Well..This is just  a nice way of saying “I’m fed up of explaining twitter on our private chats”,with all due respect my dear friends 😀

140 charsTo begin with.. Twitter is analogous to almost all social networks – facebook,flickr,youtube,digg et al.,. Simply put, its a place to shout out what’s on your mind,what you think of the state-of-affairs,what’s going on in your life,what you’re eating at the moment 😛 (@having),what you are reading,an interesting weblink you just clicked,what song you’re listening to,whether is laundry day or if you are bungee jumping or parasailing …. Guess you get the point!

The thing that makes twitter unique is the 140 character limit imposed on every tweet(your message) that you send.

>>Dufus : This is my first tweet.Its supposed to be interesting. link

08:30 PM Sep 13th from web

If someone (Simp) finds your tweet useful (incase you send out an interesting link/ info ) they can “retweet” (RT) yours.

>>Simp : RT @Dufus : This is my first tweet.Its supposed to be interesting. link

08:35 PM Sep 13th from Twhirl in reply to Dufus

On your public timeline(wat u see after u login) you see all the tweets sent by the people who you follow(friends / your fellow tweeps).

In case you wanna answer to one of ur friends you simply hit the reply button & type the reply.

>>Simp: @Dufus Wow that was damn interesting!

08:537PM Sep 13th from Twhirl in reply to Dufus

This implies that only dufus gets to see the message,simp sent (and those who follow both dufus & you-your mutual friends) Using @ helps people who are mentioned to keep track of tweets where they’re mentioned!Its good to mention ppl using their handles(twitter names) when referencing them in tweets.

>>Dufus: Hello @nitwit @macho @nerdy Come over to my house party #tweetdown

09:35 PM Sep 13th from Tweetdeck

However this is visible to all your friends(if there’s even a space /any character(s) before the @ )

Coming to the # tag…This is used in the searching of tweets containing the word after the #. Simply put..you can track all the proceedings of a meet from ALL users(not only ur friends) if they don’t fail to include the # tag in their every tweet regarding the meet/watsoever!

Incase you wanna say something more personal..Use the direct message option,None but the receiver will know.

Here’s a compilation of answers to #whatistwitter ?, by some of the @people I know on the best microblogging service 😀

The red jots – my best effort to highlight some of the features.

#whatistwitter

And my answer to this #whatistwitter is this :- Its a repository of information..since you share everything here,which makes it my shared notes,newsfeeds,foxmarks,public chat,poll daddy..More than all this its a place for like minded individuals to network,find friends & reach wide.

Twitter is not only popular among business people,moms,IT pros,bloggers,..But also among many many celebrities…Some of those who I follow are ShashiTharoor,Chetan_Bhagat,mileycyrus,bdutt..! It is quite an excellent way to interact with people who you normally can’t imagine having a conversation with..Although it isn’t normal for all celebs to reply to all tweets directed to them…there ARE celebs who reply sometimes \m/Watch this amazing slideshow …

Oh,Snap-2 : Social Meltdown

The socially active peeps would’ve been aware of the social meltdown last night.Serious Twitter Outage Ongoing, Denial Of Service Attack that took a toll on nearly 45 million tweeple(twitter+people)

Even the largest sites still have occasional outages.Yahoo suffered 15 minutes of system wide downtime the day before, & we’re yet to know from them what went wrong..Facebook seemed down too..probably because all of the twitter traffic got redirected there 😛 (WHat am  I & ppl like me? The Social Snoopers or jus the one’s who get excited/vexed at such downtimes) You gotta experience such stuff cos they’re like the eclipse that we get to witness like once in a lifetime 😛 #farfetched alright,I know 😀

twit ANyway..All this meltdown are causes for more jabber on the social N/w which is fun for most of the jobless tweeps and not-so-fun for the other kind..whoever they be.(My aunt says everyone on twitter is jobless..else why would they want the whole world to know what they’re upto..Neva mind ..Its just Gen Gap I tell them)

Well It was time for me to switch on the fourth best thing to internet-The TV.
