CNNi just changed their profile background and logo. Great as a desktop.

At least one member of this forum is abusing Twitter in my opinion and i wish they would cease forthwith. Could ultimately give this forum a bad name.

:shock: :shock: :shock: I'm afraid that's me, right?

Anyway, people would use twitter however they wish to use it. But, for a heads up, if it's me, I would consider changing my style (which is hard to do since that is my style).

^^ ROFL! It's not you! Well, not to me anyway! :-) Just do a search for messages sent to people like Jennifer, Rosemary, Michael and Mari and you'll soon find one particular person who constantly spams about a secret or something that she needs to tell them but they have to follow her first and asking why they are angry with her if they don't reply. While it's ok for her to sit at home and be a pest, she doesn't realize that these people are actually working and reply in good faith. It's not expected, nor should it be demanded.

At least one member of this forum is abusing Twitter in my opinion and i wish they would cease forthwith. Could ultimately give this forum a bad name.

If it's who I think you're talking about, I sent her a PM asking why she doesn't just send an email like she was told to the other day, but I just got ignored.

Don't think anything, other than being banned by Twitter (or blocked by those this person spams) will change anything.

No it's absolutely 1000% not dezbee2008 but it is the one who a few weeks ago made me shut off my pm function so there's definitely a pattern there.

Yeah, I was wondering why you didn't have a pm function.

Thanks for the clear, but I'm a type of person what would ask questions if even one person said "at least one person did this and that". Again, it's alright. I get this all the time. ;-)

Morpium > Quickly reviews his tweets to Jen, Rosie, Michael and Mari.

Katherine Green, senior vice president of programming for CNN International is on Twitter at @KatherineGreen Her last tweet was from March 2:

Having lunch with quest. Gulp.


:-)

And this one from early September could possibly be referring to BackStory.

In a big brainstorming session for a new show we hope to put on air this month. Its very exciting!

@iDesk is the CNN International Desk in Atlanta, London and Hong Kong.
I know there is an International Desk, but it's bit confusing since they have a show I-Desk. (What if Hala did leave? They would have to rename the page.)

I also find it annoying when I do searches now I have to "-Twitter" or I get useless pages and pages of it.

While I will not name names here, Leeroy, I have a bad feeling that I'm thinking about the same person you've been thinking about. Again, I will not name names. Nuff said.

Let me guess, is it goursote? I hate to be so public about this, but every time I post something that indirectly criticizes Zain, I get a message from this person. I think it's absolutely annoying, especially when said message is deleted. To make matters worse, this person doesn't even respond back.

If it ultimately isn't this person, I apologize in advance. Feel free to delete this message if it stirs up a conflict, Morpium or Houston.

I'm afraid so.

Conflict? Not trying to start one, but I'll leave it at that.

I think it's obvious it is goursote after reading some of the tweets.

Also I've had some lovely PMs after politely asking the person in question to lay off the Zain love fest.

Going Off-Topic I'm probably an oddity around here in that I don't send out unsolicited pm's to anyone, anytime for any reason and that has been the case for 4 years. Maybe it's unfriendly, maybe it's english reserve or maybe

No pictures on their pages and no other CNNers following, so I'm not sure whether they are legitimate. BUT, if I had to put money on it, I'd say Jonathan's is almost certainly legitimate.
