My New Addiction – Twimbow

I’ve said in my previous Twimbow posts, I’ve never been a “Twitter” person, well, I said Twit. I’ve been staring at Twimbow all day. Now that I know about lists I feel comfortable because I’m not pressured to look at 50 tweets a second.

I’m also learning color coding. See the image below, the colored boxes above all the tweets. That is an awesome feature because now I can give each group of celebrities (and friends) a certain color. Like all the Bravo people have Orange, all the E! people have purple, all the SyFy people have lime green… Friend tweets are all yellow. But this will allow me to filter who I want to look at as far as celebrities and friends go.

I’m having way more fun than any person should with Twitter lol.

Night Mare

I started reading Night Mare which is the 6th book in the Xanth series on Wednesday, hoping it would only take me 2 days if I read half one day and half the next.  Unfortunately it did take me 4 days.  I read as much as I could in the time that I had allowed myself since I am a devoted viewer of certain tv shows that are on every night.  After my shows I tried reading a chapter or 2 so I was able to continue trying to meet my ridiculous quota lol.

As with all Xanth novels I loved it.  It certainly was difficult considering it was all about war.  I had to keep telling myself that it would all work out in the end and all the lost kings would not be lost forever and everyone will live happily ever after until the next book.  That did help.

The book did indeed have a happy ending, ok not that kind of happy ending… you know what I mean.

My next book is Dragon on a Pedestal, Xanth novel #7.  I’ll start it tomorrow and hope that I haven’t burned myself out on reading, or reading Xanth novels for that matter.

@Twimbow: New Revelations

Well I have finally figured it out.  I guess because I don’t use Twitter that often I never learned that there are lists that you can add people to.  Twimbow allows you to use your middle column to view only people in a list that you choose.  DUH!  So naturally I am making a list and only putting in people I really want to follow, friends and celebrities.

So, I can stop blocking people, which I stopped doing when I learned that blocking equals unfollowing followers.  A huge Oops.

Also the 3rd column in the Twimbow website is a search window.  Notice the magnifying glass?  The search area above that allows you to type a specific persons name to look at all their tweets and mentions.

Notice the column on the left (which is the middle column in the website) says Celebrities, that’s my new Celeb list.  And notice the magnifying glass in the column on the right that says Twimbow?  I get it now.

Now that I have this new information I will be a very happy Twimbow user.  I’m very excited because I finally get it now.  What can I say, I guess I get stupid in my old age but I learn… eventually.
