Twitter users and their online behaviour are objects of the survey Tweeting in everyday life. This post reveals basic descriptive information about the Twitter users, who took part in the survey, but I’m already working on discovering patterns in the data, that reveal different types of tweeting subjects, such as “self-narrators”, “super tweeps”, “negativists” or “reactionists” and their habits. Nevertheless, let’s see first where they come from and with whom and about what they prefer to tweet …
Working on a little Twitter research that is sooner or later going to be materialised in a form of an article, a phd-thesis, booklet or website, I found and put together some numbers to reveal the basic pattern of Twitter growth. It looks like the great expansion of Twitter has began in 2011.
On Friday started first edition of Rails Girls Ljubljana, a workshop about Ruby on Rails. After Friday’s installation party, on Saturday started the real fun. Checking on css, html and “the real code” again, reminded me, what was the most exciting and fun part of my job in the web industry – playing in the lines, playing with the code!
We were sailing with the Schooner America 2.0 last Thursday. Schooner America 2.0 is remake of the boat, that won first America’s Cup trophy back in 1851. She seems to be the pride of Manhattan sailing fleet – 105 feet and 3600 square feet of sail!
Couple of cold Brooklyn lagers and awesome bites from the Smorgasburg food flea market. Is nice in NY.
With 31 I was ripe enough to visit the NYC. It happened after some months of my life, where change and work were one of the seldom constants of my living. The stressy’n’messy (but also awesome!) period ended with an ugly cold, that has been upgraded to bronchitis as soon as we landed in the USA: Sunday’s sprints at the Boston airport to catch connecting flight to the JFK airport and then Monday’s rushing through Manhattan subway stations haven’t done any good to me.
Lying in bed at noon on Sunday confirms more than successful planning of this saturdaying. What is saturdaying? Slovenian word for it would be sobotkanje and my suggestion for German dictionaries is Samstagern (in Switzerland there is a village with this hip name). This very special weekend mode can include as many of your favourite activities as you like it or it can consist of 100-percent of doing nothing. Anything and everything, as long as you are enjoying yourself without having a second thought on your general life-work concerns.
East of Eden, title of Steinbeck’s well-known novel describes well, how does it feel to be in the Turkey’s far east, on the border with Armenia, Iran, Iraq and Syria.
Weekend was long, since I was under writing pressure. But despite all stressy and messy thoughts, I managed to finish my text around noon today and the whole Sunday afternoon was there waiting for me. Since I didn’t feel very well, the first and the most important thing on the todo list was running.
