Drinking for Twitter

I know I wrote about Web 2.0 rather negatively a few weeks ago, but I’ve got a bit of an announcement.

Rudius Media has joined Twitter–or at least one of the sites has. DrinkingForTwo, probably the funniest one on the entire network is now microblogging. Basically, now you can get the ridiculous one-liners from DFT directly on your phone, IM client or RSS reader. I set it up for my phone and now one or two times a day, they show up in my inbox and show them to my friends.

The problem for Twitter before was that 1) No one was posting anything of any sort of quality. 2) The gung-ho early adopters enthusiasm made it annoying. Since Rudius understand how most of Web 2.0’s features are invasive and unwanted, we’re not going to abuse that trust. We’re not going to bombard you because we wouldn’t wanted be bombarded. And since I’m a subscriber myself, I’m going to shut anything down that crosses the line.

So seriously, join Twitter and add Drinking For Two to your friends list. The content is much more suited for a service like Twitter than it is for the regular domain it’s on now. If you like it, pass it along.

Here are some drinking for two quotes:

-i say if you can have a drink with a straw then you can do the same with soup god dammit.

-my new word for the day is ‘restimate’. a restimate is the amount of time that i think that i am going to nap for.

-although i have never been to northern china or am related to anyone from northern china i really miss the place.

-i got a new pair of shoes today. when i went up to the cash with the box the chick behind the counter asked me ‘who served you?’. I didn’t know, i didn’t pay attention to the name as i didn’t think that i was going to be tested. I wanted to tell the girl at the cash that i was served by the girl with the nice ass and perky tits but instead i just said ‘i think she had glasses’.
