Comment: I guess teenagers fail at Twitter (Score 1) 381

by Synic (#28679707) Attached to: Analyst, 15, Creates Storm After Trashing Twitter

If nobody is reading your tweets, then they fail due to one or more of the following:

1) You aren't saying anything worth reading
2) You don't know how to use retweet (RT) to publish replies to people you are following so that people can read them if they search for that person's @profilename
3) You don't participate in any hashtag groups

I'm guessing #1 is the worst problem, since teenagers usually have nothing to say that someone else hasn't already said in a more clever or amusing way, and then #2 and #3 are probably tied.

Dvorak Says gPhone is Doomed 454

drewmoney writes "Speaking with his usual frustrated crankiness John Dvorak rants his way through an article explaining why the gPhone will never work. 'First of all, it wants to put Google search on a phone. It wants to do this because it is obvious to the folks at Google that people need to do Web searches from their phone, so they can, uh, get directions to the restaurant? Of course, they can simply use the phone itself to call the restaurant and ask! I've actually used various phones with Web capability. They never work right. They take forever to navigate. It's hard to read the screens ... I also hope that people note the fact that the public has not been flocking to smartphones of any sort.' "

For fun I decided I'd test the Slashdot moderation system to see if I could get some flamebait worthy posts moderated down. I provoked a Bible-puncher with some gas, so we'll see if the system works or if he takes the bait. See the thread on my post list referring to "Surviving the Chopping Block."
