    On twitter when someone adds you to a list - what does that mean?

    I don't know but it's really irritating. The only way to remove yourself seems to be to block the list owner (then unblock them again if you like).

    I don't mind too much - probably because I don't know the meaning ? I am actually following some of them as most of the people doing the adding seem to be MVPs.

    i.e. I post an #azure article - then I get added to an Azure list. Same for SQL.

    Oh no.

    Don't let anyone do that. It's horrible. Quick, go and change your password and your handle...

    OK. Kidding. It's nothing. It means that someone is managing the accounts they follow by organizing them into lists. You can turn off the alerts that tell you you've been added. I actually like to see them so I know how I'm being categorized ('Prat' and 'Stupid Prat' seem to come up a lot).

    Not a clue. Makes sense though.

  • Beware the Twitter list. For it is a way of defining you and boxing you into a corner!

    Actually, lists can be followed as a whole (I don't remember how) so people don't have to follow individuals to get the gist of what people generally tweet about.

  • Wow, today's spam includes a warning about BOOTY POP... dang, just as I was about to order cases of BOOTY POP for my family and friends for Christmas. After all, don't we all want "Ideal for Round and Booty Pop Tight Butt"?

    Especially as it's recommended by Joseph Stalin. It must be good.

    I have plenty of places to store the Booty Pop I've ordered, in my new cheap kitchen.

    If the answer to your question can be found with a brief Google search, please perform the search yourself, rather than expecting one of the SSC members to do it for you.

    Just wondering if the usual 50 cl portion is enough?

    Oh dear, I appear to have deleted it. So sorry. Do you want the spam restored so that you can get the details down for your orders? 😛
