The campaign begins here: Stop the LoudTwitter madness!
Please stop echoing your Twitter to your LiveJournal, everyone. Very few people's Twitter feeds are so interesting as to merit this, and they are all readily available from the failwhale herself so there is no need to copy them in here as well.

If you need technical assistance with this issue, please ask away and I'll try to help. There are other better ways to syndicate your Twitters, if that's what you need, including having a separate lj (community) for it.

Thanks for reading. Help put a stop to this noise today.

While we are here if any one has any technical questions about LJ backups, I'll try and field those too.

Twitter has been cluttering my pages too...

I'm interested in LJ backups. Why don't you do a post?

S'not quite enough for a post on that..

I've used this thing successfully and sometimes even run it automatically:
http://kelpheavyweaponry.com/trac/ljmigrate

It can backup an LJ or even transfer most of it to another LJcode site...
This will perhaps be more interesting once the escape launch is ready. You can keep with that news in dreamwidth or thereabouts.

Bravo! *clap* *clap* *clap*

I generally don't want to tell others what to put in their blog, but I do agree, 99% of the twitter traffic is just so banal, and nearly useless in its delay)!

I've started calling the people who do it "twits."
