Things have changed over the years. SimHQ use to be so much more active.


I can honestly say that I don't really know what a tweet is. smile I assume it's not much different than a post like this one on a message board. I also have zero experience on Instagram and Facebook (although I know what they are).

I never thought I'd be on SimHQ this long as I assumed by now it would have modernized (more so than the big update a years back). I like clean and simple word (and pic) communication (think Usenet), everything else to me is just an irritating distraction (such as Likes and Reputation Pts.). When SimHQ does eventually modernize (and I assume one day they'll have to, like everything else) I'll take my exit.

I have adapted to one modern advancement however, I now technically text on my flip phone since wife added to my phone some canned responses ("Yes", "No", "Ok",...). So now I can at least respond to her texts when she can't call or if the call won't go through (common in the rurals)...

"I'm here." <- Mill parking lot.
"Ok"

"Going to be another hour or so."
"Ok"

"On my way home."
"Ok"

A tweet is basically a text, done via the Twitter app. Restricted to 280 characters (use to be 140 until recently).
You follow accounts of interest (sports, gaming, politics,whatever).
It's quite simple, the only social media app I have use for. For me it is for keeping up to the moment in news, especially sports. Things always break on Twitter, as it is right up to the second.

That actually sounds pretty cool. I can see it's not like a message board where you can be wordy (my above post contains 835 characters, 1,028 characters including spaces). I could see myself using Twitter if I had any of those interests.

Twitter is good if you are a celebrity or some other kind of famous person who wants to keep in constant touch with your fans. If you’re just a an verage Joe Blow then why bother? How many people would actually be interested in reading about what you bought at the grocery store or how many dumps you took that day?

I kind of like the black dots in IL-2, and if they don't change it, that's fine with me. Sometimes a simulator also has to be a game. I'll still buy Forgotten Battles.



How my post count is a small reflection of the ones things I've inspired to grow.

You clearly have no idea what Twitter is about.
People talk about common interests, not dinners and dumps. Some might, but you don't have to follow them.
