Don't forget to follow @lavag on Twitter

Recommended Posts

If you're on Twitter (and let's face it, if you're not then maybe you should just shut your Windows 95 machine down and go outside to yell at those pesky kids on your lawn again), then you should follow the official LAVA account: @lavag . All of the Admins and Mods use it to let you know about hot topics, retweets from LAVA members and industry experts alike on LabVIEW topics, as well as site housekeeping information that's time and/or accessibility sensitive (eg: "Forums are experiencing difficulties - we know what the problem is and we're working on it").

So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to www.twitter.com/lavag and follow @lavag !

Damn, so far in my life I have managed to avoid becoming a twit or twitter (what is the term for somebody who reads twit's ?), but people seem determined to try and drag me into the next centry, will it work Ok with my IE6.

For an old lag like me it is very confusing do I take my LAVA via Twitter or maybe the RSS Feed or maybe the LAVA Facebook or shall I just keep on reading the good old web site itself. Actually I think I will just wait for the DVD to come out

Sure - but most people either use a twit client (a small app that runs on your PC and/or phone that updates you on the tweeters that you're "following") or opt to get an email when there's an update. FYI: I use tweetdeck on my PC and PockeTwit on my Windows phone, but there are a multitude of clients out there. (...and, since you mentioned it, I also have my Facebook status update to my personal tweets and my LinkedIn status update to my preofessional tweets, but that's probably a little extreme tongue.gif )

Coming soon to a home theatre near you (it's a blu-ray in 1080p with 7.2 surround sound, so make sure your technology is up to it wink.gif ).

Seriously though, we tweet the little stuff - we don't tweet every minute of every day (actually, we average maybe once or twice a week), and it's mostly hot topic, retweets and system status messages, so you'll still want to either use an RSS feed (IMHO the best option) or go directly to the wesbite for the full LAVA experience.

Actually, @lavag is most active during NI-Week - it's updated with schedules, good session previews and summaries, lunch meet-ups, and info on where the LAVA crew are getting on 6th Street in the evenings for beer and tequila shots smile.gif But just because it's most active during NI-Week doesn't mean that there's good stuff going out on the wire throughout the year...

No friending required - just make cheques out to "Christopher G. Relf"...

I *know*! That vid's gone viral - it even made it through the Chinese firewall...

@dannyt FYI: you can subscribe an RSS feed of a twitter user's tweets without actually signing up for a twitter account yourself.
