NQDTR Discussion Thread - M091207

Hello, Shakers, and welcome to the NQDTR Discussion Thread for Monday, December 7, 2009.

This thread is for discussion and comments inspired by comments left in today's NQDTR, namely this one. If you're intending to report a teaspooning act, you want to do so in that thread. If you want to talk about an act you saw someone post about, do so over here. Please remember that no one on the NQDTR thread is required to come here, so your message may not be read by its intended recipient.

We are allowing congratulatory comments, but do take a moment to read the thread first, and if the person has already had several comments of that sort, perhaps it isn't necessary to pile on. We want to avoid the chance of it becoming a sort of popularity contest, which can be triggering of serious social anxiety for a lot of people.

Additionally today, I'd like to know if there's anyone who'd like to help me by taking on a NQDTR Twitter account. I don't use Twitter myself, and really don't want to add any more social networking sites, because honestly I've got too many already (I have five separate LJ blogs, as well as two communities, and a Facebook account, plus contributing here - it's enough!). My idea (after Liss explained a bit about how Twitter works) is that maybe someone could maintain an NQDTR Twitter account, and tweet a few of the teaspoons each time there's a report. Or whatever way you want to use it to accomplish much the same sort of goal - if you want to invite people to tweet things to you which you will re-tweet, that's fine. Like I said, I don't use it, so I'm not sure how to use it well for this, but I'd bet one of you does know, and I'd love the assist if anyone can step up.
