  • Just had a caller threaten to sue about comments he left in Aug on the site, also claimed he had a writer followed by PI #
  • @BenLaMothe I don’t have a preference. ChatMaker was an option if there was a call for off Twitter chat. I doubt it will be too busy at 1st in reply to BenLaMothe #
  • @mlaine It could be still being used after a much earlier build or for skydiving. We still have horse paths. #
  • @karenhanson Is Thu 7:30 to 9 a good time? Concerned Tue is too close to #journchat or we could try Sun | #journ2jour #journ #

  • @AmHealthBeauty I think journ2pr chat is useful, but as you said each group has different needs. We’d also benefit from separate chats. in reply to AmHealthBeauty #
  • @karenhanson What if we announce it on Twitter, but run it on something like ChatMaker.net ? As you said, Twitter is poor for hearding cats. in reply to karenhanson #
  • @chuckwelch @BenLaMothe What if we announce it on Twitter, but run it on something like ChatMaker.net ? #
  • @karenhanson @BenLaMothe Maybe split the workload with 3-4 mods? Each one taking a week a month. Options: 3 chats a month, slightly earlier in reply to karenhanson #

  • re: 6. See the answer to #5. Entrepreneurs should visit and start a dialog at the sites where they want to get coverage. #journchat #
  • re: 5: Smaller town here. One overlooked tool PR can use is to comment on a story. As Jon Lovitz used to say: “Get to know me.” #journchat #
  • RE; #4: Concentrate on your community. You’ll cover it better than anyone else can. That’s the news they can’t get anywhere else. #journchat #
  • Re. #3: I’m out of the for-profit world. Running hyperlocal is primarily a time expense. My budget is what I afford this month. #journchat #
  • @michaelmonday Much of the audience has forgotten that. They’re waiting for the sound bites and pretty pictures. #journchat #
  • @michaelmonday it is time to teach a new generation the compelling stories are also in print. We let them slip away to tv/interne #journchat #

  • @ellerbestyle Punching koala bears? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, say no more., Squire. in reply to ellerbestyle #
  • @bordy We must be reading different sites. I’m seeing no controversy in my light reading today. More “ho hum” than uproar. in reply to bordy #
  • RT @connectingwomen Always question the media. Always. Always. Always. See what the “other” is saying on the same topic/issue/cause. #
  • @etanowitz re: @joelcomm At his level of popularity, why even bother with another’s Social Media site? It’d be easier to run his own site. #

  • @ellerbestyle “Hit the Koala” lol You kids and your crazy euphemisms. in reply to ellerbestyle #
  • @tokyobelle Humor is so personal. Marx Bros Funny. 3Stooges Not . Geo. Bush locked in Gitmo. Funny! Messing with @ellerbestyle . Laughriot. in reply to tokyobelle #
  • @tokyobelle I’m not an animal lover. It was a poor comedic choice. Punch a lion. That would have been funny. Drog kick a puma. Laughriot. in reply to tokyobelle #
  • Loved seeing the security guy yelling at the photographers who were shooting the gatorade bath. #
  • Bob Parsons likes boobs. We get it. Time for GoDaddy to try something more creative. #superbowlads #superads09 #whatever #

  • @motorbikematt Come on. I’ve paced like a caged lion behind the bar with my baseball bat looking for a fight. I got the commercial. in reply to motorbikematt #
  • @lauradavis Your dad must know me. #liberal But also #father . Can’t stand quietly by when they dis my daughter’s “favorite animal.” 🙂 in reply to lauradavis #
  • @ellerbestyle Sure, it starts with a fake koala. Then you insult one in a zoo. Pretty soon you’re flying to illegal Australian koala fights. in reply to ellerbestyle #
  • @Deggans Seriously? Careerbuilders? Springsteen better than Prince? Is this Eric Deggans of the SP Times? Have I followed the wrong deggans? in reply to Deggans #
  • @ellerbestyle And that’s why we’ll forever be on opposite sides of the line my friend. in reply to ellerbestyle #
  • I don’t care if the rest of the careerbuilder ad was funny, puching a koala is a #fail in this house. Glad my daughter is asleep. #superbowl #
  • “Race to Witch Mountain?” Attention film production execs: GET NEW IDEAS! That is all. #
