Twitter

Ok first experiment with Twitter.

http://www.mylpga.com/forum/lpga/5374-lpga-twitter.html

I've added a twitter thread after a request from members to place all twitters in a thread for easy reading. So far I've added the LPGA twitter page.

LPGA (lpga) on Twitter

Should I add each player page as well? I'm not sure if every players post makes it to the lpga page. I can also remove twitters/comments not made from players so i'll need some feedback on that.

If members here want each player added I'll need a list.

Rusty, adding each player would seem to be a fairly daunting task. While I'm not into the whole Twitter, tweeting, becoming a twit thing, this could be some interesting reading.

Honestly, I find it easier to just use Twitter itself or one of the Twitter aggregators -- I like TweetDeck -- for all the golf-related Twitter tweets. This seems to kind of miss the whole purpose of Twitter which is the real-time interactivity (replying, retweeting, tweeting, adding images, adding links, etc.)

But ... if people want this, here's my list of golfers I follow on Twitter:

Allison Fouch
Angela_Stanford
ANNIKA59
booweekley
BrianaVega
carlingcoffing
ChrisDiMarco
cortRENO
EricaBlasberg
ianjamespoulter
JakeTrout
janellaxo
jeehaeda
jillymcgilly
johannamundy
juliegranada
KRISTY2208
Kstupples
KyeongBae
Love3d
mariahjorth
MariaJoUribe
maryjane1432
Meredith_Duncan
mfrancella
mindykim89
morganpresel
natalie_gulbis
Nicole_Hage
PaigeMacKenzie
ParkerMcLachlin
PatPerezGolf
PGA_JohnDaly
PumpkinPutts
sarahjkemp
sloppyjoh
sofieandersson
SophieGustafson
Stacy_Lewis
stewartcink
StuartAppleby
Taber23
Tadd_Fujikawa
TheAmeriKim
TheAnnaRawson
TheChristinaKim
TheIreneCho
themichellewie
ThePaulaCreamer
TheVickyHurst
TiffJoh
TimVickers
tinamillergolf
YaniTseng

This includes golfers from other tours as well as LPGA and also some caddies. It does not include the 100 or so other golf-related people and organizations I follow like tournaments, vendors, writers, etc. Also new ones are being added and some subtracted all the time.

I've never been into Twitter myself, so I'm not sure why it was requested, I guess some people just like to read whats going on with LPGA players here, and not have to go to another site? no idea. It's a trial run at any rate, I can add players at request its no big deal, once its done it's done, and adding 50 players will only take 5 min.

I don't have a life. I am online a lot though. Part of it is justified (job). Part not.

No seriously. I don't read every tweet by every twit. I'm not even on Twitter every day.

The question is, how do these twits have time to tweet so much?

Because like a lot of men I see out on the course with a cell phone clamped to their ear, they are on Twitter when they should be doing something else.

Seriously speaking, this "information overload" (quantity way, way, over quality, depth) cannot be healthy for the brain. I see a significant increase in attention deficit disorders and worse issues looming in the future....

Glad I naturally have no desire to start twittering or use myspace et al.

I'm more worried about kids. Too many kids these days suffering from screen addiction. They can't function away from television, video games, Wii, Nintendo, web, email, Facebook, cellphone, Twitter, GPS, DVD player in the back seat of the SUV, etc.

I'm waiting for someone to invent a videoplayer for golf carts so people can watch TV or movies between shots. God forbid they should have a moment of peace and quiet. The latest thing I've seen is TV above gas pumps. I thought TV in doctor's office waiting rooms was bad enough. I'm already sick; don't make me watch Jerry Springer, too!

BTW, you're not missing anything with MySpace.

I stayed in a hotel recently and on each floor, on the wall across from the elevator doors, were big screen t.v.'s with some program on...sound and all.

I'd be very ticked if I had a room anywhere within earshot of that. Well, I'd move or somehow disable the t.v.
