Twittering the Anniversary July 17, 2009 3:48 AM   Subscribe

Can everyone twittering the 10th anniversary use #mefi10 ? We can then append the city name, such as #mefi10london.

I would like to see updates from elsewhere as we do our meetups!

Maybe just #mefi10 for all of them, since searching for '#mefi' on Twitter Search won't bring up tweets that contain just '#mefi10london'.

Drinking.

There, that should cover the updates for the Toronto meet-up. If anyone pukes, we'll let you know.

Another vote for #mefi10. Otherwise, those of us with long city names will have to disemvowel ourselves to get our shenanigans into the mix.

This... is it tag spam? Why the hell would anyone waste their time?

This is a fantastic idea.

I like tweetgrid for watching hashtag feeds on the web, or tweetdeck if you want to download a client. I am not one of those fancypants iphone people so go find your own app.

Direct link to #mefi10 feed.

If only there was an uglier way to view hashtag feeds.

So why aren't my tweets showing up on Tweetgrid, but they are showing up on my twitter page?

Some nice tips here and at the "show more results" part you can get Twitter's search to show 100 results at a time.

I'm forecasting a 75% chance of chunderstorms around Etobicoke and eastern Mississauga.

true, chunking express, but I'm too lazy to repeatedly click on "there have been x new tweets" - just load them ffs.

Pastabagel - they show up for me.

I like the fact that documenting the event & talking about documenting the event will eventually and inevitably become the main topic of conversation at the event. Just like MetaFilter.

Excellent.

I plan on taking over another, smaller room at our meetup spot, painting it gray, & designating it for this purpose.

Does this mark a triumphant return?

honest knave: "Can everyone twittering the 10th anniversary use #mefi10?"

Let me get this straight. You made a post suggesting a specific Twitter hashtag, and you didn't tag your post?

So.... what does this do?

Not as much as Zombo, Eid.

Just added #mefi10 tweets to the Tenth Anniversary Site.

Is this the thread where I can tell everyone that twitter sucks and I hate it and I'm really cool because I hate it and you really need to know that because I'm totally too cool for twitter and it sucks?

So is everyone going to be sitting at the tables at the meetups with their heads down, twittering into their iPhones and ignoring each other?

No. Heads down drawing rail maps of St Pancras station when I left. Old school.

Ah, that was fun. I think we managed to cover most mefi-injokes as well, despite being only two people. :) Meetup Malmö is offically over.

I has Twitter. How do I do this? Seriously.
posted by KevinSkomsvold at 5:12 PM on July 17, 2009


Pretty easy KS. Just append anything you post to Twitter with #mefi10 so it shows up when you use search.
posted by eyeballkid at 6:05 PM on July 17, 2009


Thank you kind sir. Kudos appropriately displayed!
