Happiest When Tweeting?

moods and modes of Social Media

Today’s twoon is inspired by people who seem to be happiest when they communicate via tweets.

Text description of today’s twoon: 3 image groups under the title “Moods & Modes”. Left group is a smiley face that is frowning and under the face is an icon of an envelope, and the word Postal. Middle group is a smiley face with a flat mouth that is not smiling nor frowning, and under the face is a computer icon with the word “Email”. Right group is a smiling smiley face, and under it is a hand making the “Ok” sign and the word “Tweeting”.


No Tweeting Zone

No tweeting zone (or twittering on twitter)

Worse than the twilight zone?

Today’s cartoon is inspired by senseless hunting for valid parking spaces! And, also inspired by the rumor that some workplaces block access to sites such as Twitter, Plurk, Yammer, and other microblogging services.  So, during a normal work-week some places can seem to be sort of a “no tweet zone”. (Except, as advised by many, if one can access other sites or use software such as Tweetdeck or others listed here on Twitter.

Text description of twoon: A mock-up of a street sign that says in large letters ‘No Tweeting Zone‘, and below it in smaller letters ‘Permit holders excepted‘,  ‘9:00am – 5:00pm M-F‘ and ‘Max Fine $100 or 3 Months Online Community Service“.

Tweeting the Party Line

Dedicated to the people in lines everywhere, including at South By Southwest (SXSW, #SXSW).

Text description of Twoon: Cartoon of people standing in a long line that is leading to “Awesome Party 2.0”, and one person is saying to others “I’m creating awesome tweets about the nightlife here, but really just bored!” and the tagline starts with the word “Towing” crossed out, replaced with “Tweeting the Social Media ‘Party Line'”

Wisdom Of Cows

Tweeting News: Today we learned of a million-dollar tweeting scheme, something about the Twitterati and about how to follow sports teams on Twitter.

And ranking by news articles… 37,000 or so articles mentioned Twitter, 690 on FriendFeed, 80-ish about Yammer, 44 Jaiku, 33 about Plurk, 11 dealing with Pownce, and none about Twoons (yet).

Text Description of today’s Twoon cartoon: Colorful cartoon drawing of a cow with brown droppings, with the headling ‘Mweet’ and tag lines ‘Don’t follow too close to this one!’ and ‘Wisdom of Cows’

Social Media Police – Measuring Reputation & Influence

Measuring Social Influence - Reputation Management

Tweeting News: Today we learned that most mobile Twitterers update via text message.  Other recent news includes that the top dog at Facebook is on Twitter, again. And perhaps the micro monetization of tweets has begun?

Text Description of today’s Twoon: Old drawing of a male & female police officer, the male is measuring the length of a woman’s skirt, while people the background are doing a mix of activities, ranging from calm to frantic. One man is saying “Social Media Police Raid! Run for it!“, and the female officer is saying to the woman “You’ve let your reputation grow unevenly. We’ll let you off with a warning.


Dante’s Twitter Circle – No Un-Follow

Dante's circle of twitter followers
Drawing of a sea of people crawling in a bleak landscape, with one person saying to another “You’re in Dante’s Twitter Circle, where there is no un-follow, only follow.”

Tweeting News: A large book advance, said to be over $10,000, has been given for a upcoming book on tweets.  And, perhaps categorized under reputation management tools, BackTweets allows searching of cloaked & shortened urls used in tweets.  And a twitter hack from this week seems to have been small in scope and duration.
