That's where TweetDeck excels — I have my follows filtered into groups of local, news, politics, tech and a specific hashtag or two.  I rarely visit the Twitter web page for either of the two Twitter accounts I'm currently operating. 
 
I just use Scalaris and then have new tweets show in the corner via Growl. Much more automatic and clean.

I certainly don't want to encourage any hate mail. I don't see that you did anything wrong at any point.

However, it was quite a frustrating process trying to find out who owned the account. Twitter doesn't provide any way to contact anyone unless they're folowing you, and numerous attempts to make contact via Twitter tech support were unsuccessful. Their tech support is quite dreadful, actually. 

As for your email address, 14 people in our database have variations on "rpfan" or "radioparadisefan" as their email address, so that's not as obvious a route as you might think. 

So, yeah, I did feel like celebrating when we finally snagged the ID. Given the message I posted, I'm surprised anyone hassled you. Hopefully they'll cut that out.

As for taking down that tweet, I don't see any easy way to do that.

I started said Twitter to give RP free publicity because I love the music here and thought others on Twitter should know about it. Apparently it was a good thing because there were quite a few followers.

It's over now Bill has the name and I've moved on but some have not and I hope that this will stop further hate because that is not what I am about.

I'm really sorry that some see fit to diss you. I'll admit to not liking the non-playlist tweets being sent out, but I didn't know it was you (and I didn't know that was your email address, either). Thanks for giving BillG the ID.

People! Stop the hating! She gave Bill the Twitter ID (not everyone would so readily do it), now let it go.

Wow, Zissy. I am sorry you have been put through this. You most certainly don't deserve to be treated that way.

Thanks for being a member of the RP community.

I like TweetDeck the best so far, but my oh my, is it ever a memory pig — and it has a huge memory leak too.  I'm hoping they fix that and some feature tweaks and omissions soon.

Still looking for a Twitter app where I can schedule my Tweets in advance...
 
I do tend to use the basic Twitter page most often. I just keep it open in a tab. But, and this is where TweetDeck comes in handy, there are several users, whether real people or entities (like our local paper), whose tweets come in bunches and waves and they clutter up the stream of people I actually care about. And yeah, I know I can unfollow.

Agreed. There were two emails today from the Twitter team re: RP. I assume it was a duplication, but I nuked them without looking. I'm pretty sure I didn't opt in for anything so that's kinda not on.

Re: twitter, I opened an account for the heck of it but didn't post anything. Still, I got an email informing me that a friend from RP was "following me on Twitter"... How did she get that info? I guess now I'll have to go and craft witty 140-character twoots about what I thought Drach had for lunch. (haha)
 
Well? Inquiring minds want to know!
