I’m on Twitter?

I thought I’d set up a Twitter account for Waiter Rant. But when I tried, I discovered someone had already beaten me to the punch! It’s all good. Whoever set it up is just running my blog feed through it.

But can the person who set it up please email me? Thanks!

  1. That’d be me Cindy. I started an alternate Twitter id – WaiterRantz. But I’d prefer to be able to use the greatest and original!I don’t want to end up like Ray’s pizza!

  2. The wife and I started following you (err this twitter) last night! And at that time that account didn’t have any follower – which we thought was strange. Please keep us updadted!

  3. Happy to see you on twitter. Nice to have you following me. I’m following you and look forward to the future of your tweets. Feel free to ask questions if you have them. WELCOME Steve.

  4. “I just got a Twitter notification from you this morning that you were following me..”

    I got the same thing, and was quite surprised. Honestly, bra, WaiterRantz sounds way more street and tough. All you need is a cool, spray paint style slogan!

  5. Waiter- visit http://help.twitter.com/portal and submit a ticket to get the name changed to you, if the guy that has it doesn’t get back to you. Twitter is usually very good about getting established people or brands like you their name under control. Take a look at http://help.twitter.com/forums/26257/entries/18366
    and
    http://help.twitter.com/forums/26257/entries/18370for their rules on “Name Squatting” and Impersonation. This is technically Squatting, and they should take care of you.

  6. You can contact the Twitter admin people if you really want your name. They’re pretty good about cyber-squatting and making sure that people get the account names that rightfully belong to them. This doesn’t seem malicious, seeing as they’re running your blog feed, but they’re clearly showing that they’re not using it for personal purposes.

  7. Twitter can be addictive..but do we really need a website to publish everything that we think in less than 140 words…pretentious but what the heck!

  8. wtf is twitter, anyway? and do we really need it? i’ve heard of it in passing, but i’m pretty sure that i have enough technology to spin my head around for the next decade. what with print newspapers throwing in the towel and such, i wonder if in the future, are we going to be able to purchase actual books? the kind made from real trees? the kind that are just made to grab and hold onto while sitting comfortably on the couch in front of a fire? the kind that doesn’t allow for acquaintances to text you in the middle of the page? i’m not sure i like the direction we are going in.

  9. Bill,Anitha etc – no, we don’t *need* it, but it can be fun. Bill – no-one is forcing you to play if you don’t want to, but don’t insult those who shose to use it, and who find it entertaining and/or useful. If you think it is for twits I would suggest that tis speaks more to which individual’s tweets you have been reading, rather than to the phenomenon as a whole.

    Dane- it isn’ goign to bring down books – any more that having audio books or blogs or e-books did/does. There are all just methods of delivery.

  10. I’ve been following “you” on twitter for at least a year. It never occurred to me that it wasn’t really you. In fact, I got a little ticked that you never did anything aside from talk about new blog posts. I second (third) the suggestion to contact the twitterati and see what they can do. Also let me know if you need any help. :-)

    Best,
    Chris S

  11. Damn kids with their twitters and their Myspacebooks and whatnot – grumble grumble….HEY! GET OFF MY LAWN YOU LITTLE HOOLIGANS!!

  12. Contact Twitter online about impersonation. This should be easy to establish and they will probably realeast it to you.

    Good luck and keep up the good work.

    I’m sad that your ambiguous twitterer is not following me, even though I’m not on twitter. I’m just emotional like that.

    ROFLMAO!!! Thanks, Chef Green.

  15. Hello Waiter and everyone else. I’m not on Twitter, Facebook or any other sites like that just yet. Actually I did have sighted assistance signing up on Facebook a little while back. I am visually-impaired and use screen readers, and they don’t pick up the visual verifications. Even the audio alternatives aren’t that great, and a lot of times these audio alternatives don’t even play. But there is a free piece of software which is currently in beta for a new version, and I’ve heard rumblings that they are going to include support for Twitter and/or Facebook. Actually the way this works is that you download the software from http://www.klango.net . It started out as an environment for accessible game developers, but has grown into something big. It basically makes the Internet come alive for people with visual impairments, and fully-sighted people can partake in the fun as well. Go check out what this company is doing, because I think you’ll be really impressed. Regarding someone posing as you on Twitter, I’d notify the authorities right away.

  16. So Twitter is awesome for Taking traffic to you website . It is very
    simple to setup and its a fun positive way to keep in contact with
    people. To get more followers on twitter check out this amazing
    tool.Twitter
    Traffic Machine

  17. That is strange? Have you put in a request to have the person removed?? go through twitter:
    help.twitter.com

    Also waiterrant is available.. if I were you I’d soak up that one too? Enjoy the twitter world!

  18. Очень сильно хотелось бы подискутировть с кем-либо по обозначенному вопросу. У кого есть возможность, катайте в асю 21146562
