From YouTube to G+ to Twitter

A while back I set up my GooglePlus post stream so that they appear in my Twitter stream as well. Forgot that because YouTube and accounts are connected so that each time I give a video a “thumbs up” or a “like”, it appears in my G+ post stream and also in my tweets. Was in my account this morning, scanned my list of recent photos and videos, and decided to re-share here at .

FYI. The soloist featured in the last video is my daughter.

Have no clue what went on in that business meeting but as to the public's reaction, they say loyal users are already moaning and groaning about this proposal. Not me! As a loyal tweeter, whatever Twitter management decides, no doubt they know how to run their business. Go for it!

Anybody here on Twitter? Want me to follow? Leave your handle.

Wouldn't 10000 characters make twitter kind of like other writing sites even like PP. PP really only as you know 500 characters per article.

10000 characters would destroy Twitter, I think it is much better the way it is now

markgraham ; Rufuszen – Yep. These are the questions or complaints users are throwing out there. Don't know how this will all pan out. But hope the decision doesn't cause Twitter to crash. No such thing as too big to fail in this SM game. Wishing them success!

10,000 characters? What the ACTUAL?! I don't want to write a whole ARTICLE on Twitter! *& $?/!!!!!! Mind you, I do have 2,000 followers there so I would have a ready-made audience if I did, instead of sharing links to other places which might or might not earn me any money.

As for my handle(s) I think you follow at least one of them already.

Are you serious about Twitter expanding the number of characters? I think that would take away from it's original way that has set them a part as unique.

I have a Twitter account but not really much into it.

LOL. Your reaction seems to be about the same as other users. Yes I do follow you already on Twitter. You have more than one handle? Cause I have 4 – my main one and 3 sort of focused on a niche. I said “sort of”.

I'm not serious. I'm staying neutral on this potential “improvement”; and holding my breath hoping that the Twitter management changes don't end up in me having to delete my accounts. I was just getting used to tweeting.

Twitter is good for quickie research. Just throw up a hashtag for a particular topic and see what pops up.

I have two. Both of the Chazer clan, the Rainbow and the Word. The Word is sorely neglected right now and the Rainbow isn't feeling much better. Dayjob, you know. Gets in the way...
