I’m on Twitter?

I thought I’d set up a Twitter account for Waiter Rant. But when I tried, I discovered someone had already beaten me to the punch! It’s all good. Whoever set it up is just running my blog feed through it.

But can the person who set it up please email me? Thanks!

    That’s interesting – I just got a Twitter notification from you this morning that you were following me..

  2. Zayrina says:

    Sounds like someone is twitterpated with you.

  3. Cindy says:

    Do you have a publicist or PR person? They might have done it.

  4. admin says:

    That’d be me Cindy. I started an alternate Twitter id – WaiterRantz. But I’d prefer to be able to use the greatest and original!I don’t want to end up like Ray’s pizza!

  5. Jay Saunders says:

    The wife and I started following you (err this twitter) last night! And at that time that account didn’t have any follower – which we thought was strange. Please keep us updadted!

  6. Binny V A says:

    Don’t follow all people at once – many people will block you if they don’t already know about this site.

    Anyway, I have followed you back – I am binnyva on twitter.

  7. Lee Duncan says:

    Happy to see you on twitter. Nice to have you following me. I’m following you and look forward to the future of your tweets. Feel free to ask questions if you have them. WELCOME Steve.

  8. Chef Green says:

    I’m sad that your ambiguous twitterer is not following me, even though I’m not on twitter. I’m just emotional like that.

  9. Trinity says:

    I searched for WaiterRantz and couldn’t find you. :(

    I got the same thing, and was quite surprised. Honestly, bra, WaiterRantz sounds way more street and tough. All you need is a cool, spray paint style slogan!

    Waiter- visit http://help.twitter.com/portal and submit a ticket to get the name changed to you, if the guy that has it doesn’t get back to you. Twitter is usually very good about getting established people or brands like you their name under control. Take a look at http://help.twitter.com/forums/26257/entries/18366
    and
    http://help.twitter.com/forums/26257/entries/18370for their rules on “Name Squatting” and Impersonation. This is technically Squatting, and they should take care of you.

    use “waiter_rant”

  13. Sleepwalking Writer says:

    You can contact the Twitter admin people if you really want your name. They’re pretty good about cyber-squatting and making sure that people get the account names that rightfully belong to them. This doesn’t seem malicious, seeing as they’re running your blog feed, but they’re clearly showing that they’re not using it for personal purposes.

  14. Alicia says:

    Great..now I can twitter stalk you as well!

  15. slyster says:

    Don’t be sucked into that twitter crap!

  16. John says:

    Hey Waiter, good luck

  17. Anitha says:

    Twitter can be addictive..but do we really need a website to publish everything that we think in less than 140 words…pretentious but what the heck!

  18. Bill says:

    twitter, aptly named, as it is for twits.

  19. nr says:

    What 1 and 9 said…

  20. dane says:

    wtf is twitter, anyway? and do we really need it? i’ve heard of it in passing, but i’m pretty sure that i have enough technology to spin my head around for the next decade. what with print newspapers throwing in the towel and such, i wonder if in the future, are we going to be able to purchase actual books? the kind made from real trees? the kind that are just made to grab and hold onto while sitting comfortably on the couch in front of a fire? the kind that doesn’t allow for acquaintances to text you in the middle of the page? i’m not sure i like the direction we are going in.

    Bill,Anitha etc – no, we don’t *need* it, but it can be fun. Bill – no-one is forcing you to play if you don’t want to, but don’t insult those who shose to use it, and who find it entertaining and/or useful. If you think it is for twits I would suggest that tis speaks more to which individual’s tweets you have been reading, rather than to the phenomenon as a whole.

    Dane- it isn’ goign to bring down books – any more that having audio books or blogs or e-books did/does. There are all just methods of delivery.

    I’ve been following “you” on twitter for at least a year. It never occurred to me that it wasn’t really you. In fact, I got a little ticked that you never did anything aside from talk about new blog posts. I second (third) the suggestion to contact the twitterati and see what they can do. Also let me know if you need any help. :-)

    Best,
    Chris S

  27. Catharine says:

    Consider yourself followed.

  28. Happy Hotelier says:

    Imposting is not permitted by Twitter. Do you want some help by filing a complaint?

    I couldn’t find WaiterRantz either in the Twitter People Search function, but found it and followed you through search.twitter.com.

    At the same time I hope my tweet @waiterrant IS NOT waiterrant, but feeds the blog post ??? alerts one of the admins for you

    Cheers and continue the gr8 work

    Marco/Emery/Patrick…funniest set of comments I’ve seen in a good long time. Party on, Fellow Fogies!

  33. Sam says:

    Contact Twitter online about impersonation. This should be easy to establish and they will probably realeast it to you.

    Good luck and keep up the good work.

    Hello Waiter and everyone else. I’m not on Twitter, Facebook or any other sites like that just yet. Actually I did have sighted assistance signing up on Facebook a little while back. I am visually-impaired and use screen readers, and they don’t pick up the visual verifications. Even the audio alternatives aren’t that great, and a lot of times these audio alternatives don’t even play. But there is a free piece of software which is currently in beta for a new version, and I’ve heard rumblings that they are going to include support for Twitter and/or Facebook. Actually the way this works is that you download the software from http://www.klango.net . It started out as an environment for accessible game developers, but has grown into something big. It basically makes the Internet come alive for people with visual impairments, and fully-sighted people can partake in the fun as well. Go check out what this company is doing, because I think you’ll be really impressed. Regarding someone posing as you on Twitter, I’d notify the authorities right away.
