    Hey guys and alternative way to keep our little community organized is to use the WeFollow.com page
    http://wefollow.com/tag/pax

    By just registering here under the PAX tag we can keep a quick and self updating list.

    @Frightfully for me (changed it cos it bore no resemblance to my PAX persona whatsoever :) )

    All new to this twittering thing. Any hard-and-fast conventions I should be sticking to or can I literally type whatever I like?

    If you're replying to someone, the first word should be @username. If you want your tweets on a specific subject to be searchable, you can use hashtags - for example, "I'm going to #PAX this year!"

    Someone put together a nice "Intro to Twitter" guide last year. That might be useful to pull out of the archives.

    **Found it**
    XD

    Hey friends, I just wrote a short guide for ya'll called:

    AN ARCADIAN'S GUIDE TO TWITTER AT PAX

    Please check it out and comment there with any questions.

    Wil's cool though. If you ask a meaningful question, he will sometimes actually reply... which is crazy since he has like 300,000 followers lol. He replied to my dad last week when he asked him a question about one of the stories he wrote or something...

    I find that most internet celebrities/actors/authors will respond to you on Twitter. Cory Doctorow re-tweeted something that I sent him last week (which resulted in a flood of strange people following me)

    Twitter is mad jacked up and if you have T-Mobile, the mobile tweets are either missing or massively delayed.

    I just want to remind everyone that we'll be having another PAX Twitter Shitter afterparty this year. And as a bonus @cwknight and @syntaxgenocide are going to arrange something for the under-21s out there too so we'll have everyone covered.

    Last year we met at Belltown Billiards, but this year i don't think that will be large enough, even though they have a great dance floor. If you have some suggestions, let me know here and otherwise we're going to pick a place sometime pretty soon.

    I think Belltown Billiards could be large enough, but only if we were able to basically reserve the whole place to ourselves for the night, which I don't think we could do.

    Just so people know, I'll probably be using twitter just to update you all on how drunk I currently am and where I'm drinking at while at PAX. Just stick to the important issues, ya know? Anyways, I've already posted in this thread once, but here's my handle again just cuz I recall someone asking for this thread to get bumped on twitter.

    Belltown Billiards won't work for the kind of crowd I expect. I mean our ad-hoc group last year was 40-60 people and that was enough for them. I don't want ALL of a place, I really would like there to be locals to dance with etc. There are a few places we could go that are cool and easy to get to on Capitol Hill and Downtown. Anyone with ideas chime in, cause the brains are working up here...

    Anyone else on Twitter having problems with their Twitter avatar? Twitter last week was having some issues, and a bunch of people's avatars have gone missing. Since then, every time I try to re-upload mine, it tells me, "Uh oh, too many tweets! Try again later," or whatever the equivalent is.

    Am I just broken? :|

    I started using twitter lately and I love the updates from all of my friends at random times during the day; plus at PAX this would be very useful seeing that there are so many cool things going on all the time, its easy to get lost in the excitement :)

    Been to the last two PAXs and loved each one. Looking to connect up with people to socialize and have even more fun as I have pretty much been alone other than the people I met in meat space.

    First year I got lucky and placed in the money round in the World In Conflict tournament. Look forward to meeting many of you.

    Twitter noob also, joined for the TS.
