tweet-exclamationA couple weeks ago, I reached 2000 people that I follow on twitter (Charles Trippy was my 2000th person I followed! Awesome vlogging series!).  Twitter puts a limit on the number of people you can follow  if you don’t have enough followers (Read more about that here on their site: “Why can’t I follow people?“).  So until I have more followers, I won’t be able to follow you.

I created a list on my account so that I can still “follow” those of you who recently followed me.

When will I actually be able to follow more than 2000 people on Twitter? When I have more followers, which is somewhere in the 1800s according to what I have read on various different articles around the web.  At one time I had a couple hundred more people following me than I followed.  Then I used Twitter less (no reason, just used it less) and didn’t look into following people back.

I am also going through my huge list (right now, 1061) and either unfollowing people like bots or spammers (mostly.  If you are reading this, and I am already following you, don’t worry about me unfollowing you) or unfollowing big names and putting them into different lists.  Example of the latter is various news outlets.  Would the BBC News or New York Times follow me? Ever? Highly doubtful, but they put out great, informative tweets. So I have put them in a News list.  As I move those guys around, I’ll follow

As I move bigg

MR900432558I have been trying to get my Comedy Classics Forums working, ad there seems to be some programming conflict with this blog being on the front of this site. So I am just moving this blog to a sub-directory, and maybe (just maybe) my forums will work.

(Did the above make sense? I hope so. It’s late. It made sense in my head)

Sherlock Holmes Tweet-along update…

Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke

Also wanted to remind those Sherlock Holmes fans out there that we are still doing the Thursdays tweet-along. You can read more about that here.

This coming Thursday, we’ll be watching The Sign of Four. At 10:30 EST (old time was 8pm EST. I hope they change it back to that, cause 10:30 is kind of late for me)

Unfortunately, Netflix discontinued the Granada series on their streaming service, though they have done this before and brought it back. So hopefully they’ll do it again!

We follow WETA’s (Washington DC’s PBS channel) schedule, so be sure to check to see what episode is coming up.

And, yes, this will interfere with another Sherlock Holmes show, CBS’s Elementary (I like it, not as much as Granada’s or BBC’s, but it’s getting better and growing on me).  I probably will be live tweeting during the new season.

BBC Sherlock Pajama Party…

Also for the next couple weeks we’re watching BBC’s Sherlock, on Wednesdays at 10:30.  Only two are left, Hounds of the Baskerville, and The Reichenbach Fall.  Since we also following WETA’s schedule for this too, this is also the PBS edited version.  So you may want to consult my list for Hounds and Reichenbach on what was cut so you can keep up.

Note; This chat is done in a chat room (with optional video… I wear my deerstalker 🙂 ), rather than Twitter.

You can find out more by going over to SherlockDC’s blog 🙂

 

 

And it’s nice to have sooo much Sherlock Holmes around.  In the many years that I have been a Sherlockian, I never thought I would have to miss one Holmes for another and go…uhhh…I CAN’T DECIDE!

That’s it for now.  Time will tell if the move and fix-around works…

A few weeks ago, I happened to catch on Twitter some discussion of tweets with people watching the more than awesome Sherlock Holmes TV series that starred Jeremy Brett and Holmes and David Burke (and later) Edward Hardwicke as Watson that was put out by Granada back in the 1980s-90s. Using the hashtag #GranadaHolmes, people on Twitter were watching and commenting on the episodes as it was playing. I started taking part in it and have been having a blast ever since.

Live Tweeting: What is it?

When you are experiencing the same thing at the same time (in this case, watching video) with others from different places around the world all at the same time, and posting tweets about it using a hashtag for others to follow along in the conversation. I have done it when PBS aired BBC’s Sherlock and have loved it.

Twitter has a great page about what it is and the benefits

When is it?

Every Thursday, 8pm EST.

How to get involved:

You don’t need a Twitter account to follow along with the conversation, but if you want to add in your own thoughts, go ahead and sign in or sign up at Twitter’s site.

We follow the schedule of Washingotn DC’s PBS channel, WETA UK (the people who started the livetweet live in DC), which is pretty much in the original ordar.

Where to watch:

If you live in the DC area, watch on WETA UK. If you live outside that area (like me), you can watch on Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, or the DVDs, or other places on the internet (though not very legal) like YouTube.

We are still in the David Burke era (we last watched The Greek Interpreter), so there’s still plenty of episodes to watch with other fans.

Here’s the latest in the #GranadaHolmes tweets:


So come in and join the fun!
