Every time I go to a march or a rally, and I post it on Instagram, people will go, ‘I’m going to unfollow you!’ And I’m like, ‘I used to play arenas. I’ve lost a lot of fans. I’m fine with that. I’ve had people unfollowing me for years. You’re way behind the times.’
I started working in an STD phone booth where I had to note down all the numbers that were dialed – this was post 9/11 when security was a looming issue. I got Rs 10 per day for my work. Soon after, a benefactor offered me a job in a cybercafe down the road for Rs 20.
I talk to God and ask Him to help me. I tell Him that everything I say and do in the game is for His glory and I ask Him to put me an angel on each side, in each post, and behind me so that everything can turn out fine.
I’m spending way too much time test running my Vinevideos. I’ll go into a room and close the door and be in there for an hour workshopping a Vine video that I never even post. So that’s probably a huge time suck.
When 8chan came back online, it was extremelyunstable. I was trying to post on it to see if it worked. And it was not working at all for me, but somehow, Q’ was posting. And that was kind of the moment for me that sealed the deal If they had not already been controlling it before, they were controlling it now.
I wasn’t into social media at all, but when I decided I was going to put out my own music, I said, ‘Okay, I’m just going to post it.’ And that’s when it started its rounds on the Internet, and people started to take an interest in me.
I think that people post to social media to help shape their public identity.
I had an advantage because people would post me on blogs because I had co-signs from KanyeWest, Def Jam, and G.O.O.D. Music. Everything I put out, the blogs would put up. When I realized that, I used that to my advantage and helped build my following on my own.
I think it’s sick that we even post pictures of people in their post-baby bodies or talk about it. It upsets me so much because not only does it make a woman feel bad if she hasn’t lost all their baby weight, it’s not realistic.
Over the years, I pridemyself on being more than just a spot-up shooter. I’ve gotta put the ball on the floor. I’ve got to post up and drive the ball from the perimeter and get to the basket – all the stuff I was actually doing that helped us win the championship.
I remember, post the release of ‘Aashiqui 2,’ there was a girl from Kolkata who was waitingoutside my building for six days, and that’s crazy. She should have just called me; I would have gone and met her.
The IIP had to be folded up by the Harper Conservatives after it became clear – and as it took the ‘South China Morning Post’s Ian Young to reveal – that Canada‘s ragged refugee-class immigrants had contributed more to Revenue Canada than the IIP’s big-spender immigrant investors did over the life of the program.
It’s really weird being placed into something like that because it was never an intention to make bedroompop. I was just making music. All the people that have that genre placed on them are not the first people to have a home studio and and post it on the Internet.
When I was in high school, I got bullied through social media – on the Internet, on my Facebook. That was hard for me, and I think social media has made it easy for people to bully other people on-line because they can just post anything they want anonymously.
During the ’80s when I was peaking in my career, I was a heavydrinker and would not be in control post my drinks at times. I used to be a toughhusband to live with and had a bad temper. But I have now learnt to control both my drinks and my temper.
I try to be aware of my kids’ autonomy in terms of my Instagram, but I do post them a lot. I would never want to post something that would embarrass them or that later they’d feel some sort of shame for.
I find often I’m wandering around the park with my kids, and I notice something, and I think, ‘Oh, I could come up with a clever Facebook post about that.’ It’s like, ‘Wait a minute – that’s not what I should be thinking. I should be present in the moment with my kids.’
We’ve changed a lot of things to help certaingroups of people. We widened the lane from 6 feet to 12 feet to 16 feet to make it so the big guys aren’t as dominant. Well, why didn’t we just say, ‘You’ve got to learn to play against them in the post?’
A lot of people just think I’m a big man, but I’m a basketball player. I am able to do everything that a basketball player can do – from playmaking and scoring to just passing the ball and just being a leader and post presence.
I tell you the past is a bucket of ashes, so live not in your yesterdays, no just for tomorrow, but in the here and now. Keep moving and forget the post mortems; and remember, no one can get the jump on the future.
I find that I have about six bloggable ideas a day. I also find that writing twice as long a post doesn’t increase communication, it usually decreases it. And finally, I found that people get antsy if there are unread posts in their queue.
If you really care about Facebook likes, don’t just post your stuff to Twitter and then rely on it being republished automatically to Facebook. In my samplesize of one, Facebook penalizes you significantly for that and shows that content to far fewer people.
It’s even rougher for the kids today because they have social media – it’s as if they’re being interviewed every moment of the day even when they’re just interviewingthemselves, putting out a tweet or an Instagram post.
I think my versatility is a big strength. I don’t think anybody can guard me, just because I’m 6’10 and can dribble and play point. If I have a little guy on me, I take him to the post. For me to be able to then pass the ball, it helps me a lot.
I devised the Bert Lance Toe Test then – you go out on the front porch of the house, turn ‘The Washington Post’ over with your big toe, and if your name’s above the fold, you know you’re not going to have a good day.
Have you ever been to Glens Falls? The city limits signs are on the same post.
It’s tough to get wings deep post catches when you’re playing with two bigs all the time.
I draft things on Twitter five or six times now, where as five, six years ago, I probably would just post and not really censor myself as much. But now I’m like, well, I don’t want to post that I ate at McDonald‘s because then I’m going to get someone telling me I’m fat.
In essence, what Innocentive does is it provides a platform where you can post a really challenging problem and offer a reward to anybody who can come and provide a solution. And it’s been remarkably effective. People get very challenging problems and get solutions to those problems.
I have gone on the air and announced my telephone number at the Washington Post. I go into the night, talking to people, looking for things. The great dreaded thing every reporter lives with is what you don’t know. The source you didn’t go to. The phone call you didn’t return.
Journalists have sometimes looked to my Twitter account and quoted me from there, and that’s fine because that’s public domain. I know exactly what I’m doing when I post something on Twitter; in a way, it’s saying, ‘This is who I am, and I don’t have anything to hide.’
A lot of people know me from Instagram, and most of the concepts that I post there are my looks or my makeup. They don’t know or remember that, almost every night in NYC, I am running from gig to gig and working hard.
I comment on my friends’ things; whatever they post, I post funny posts. I don’t post anything that’s too sad or mad, or at least not for too long. And I’m usually just a happy person! Silly – people would describe me as silly and crazy and fun.
It is much to be wished that one had a post that knew what it was doing again; and lawmakers that knew what they were doing. If I were the Government, I should feel rather ashamed of making regulations one month and unmaking them the next.
‘The Washington Post’ doesn’t have to report on what I post on Twitter. CNN doesn’t have to report on what I post on Twitter. All kinds of media outlets – they don’t have to report on anything that I post on Twitter. Just like they don’t have to report on all kinds of other things that other people post on Twitter.
My mother wrote a teencolumn for the South China Morning Post in the 1950s when she was growing up in Hong Kong. Her name was Lily Mark, but she sometimes wrote under her confirmation name, Margaret Mark. That was how she met my father.
I’ve learnt that the muse is like an angrygirlfriend. If she comes knocking you better be home because if you’re not, she doesn’t leave a note saying pick up after 3 P. M. from the post office. The gift she had is gone forever.
What’s odd about the selfie stick is that while it might faintly improve the photo you’ll post on Facebook, it definitely makes you seem like a shallow, awfulclown to any bystanders in the humdrum physicalspace you’re posing in.
People use us for their weddings, their university convocations – you become a part of culture. That’s a big part of people’s lives, and it’s actually a really big honor for us. All their memories around that process are stored in Paperless Post.
If you look at the policies that were implemented over the past four years post 2015, these are not really growthoriented policies.
I’ll post a video, and it might get 10,000 comments, and I’ll scroll through and they’ll all be lovely and nice – but then they’ll be one saying, ‘I hate you; I’m unsubscribing’ and that’s the one that sticks out and stays on your mind all day.
Selling a lifestyle – whether it’s a brand or an Instagram post – which teaches not just girls but people that your value is defined by what you look like is the most appalling thing that I could think of, especially as a woman.
I started making videos to post just for my friends to see, and people really liked them. One day, I realized they had a couplethousandviews on YouTube – I hadn’t even known other people were watching them.
If you’re racist and you come out and say it’s because of Brexit, then great. Then I know definitely not to talk to you, rather than you give me a sidewaysglance in a shop. Now I know, I’ve seen your Facebook post.
Leaving the E.U. would mean the ‘Guernseyfication’ of the U.K., which would then be a little country on the world scale. It would isolateitself and become a trading post and arbitration place at Europe’s border.
I see little girls at my meet-and-greets who are like, ‘Kelsea! It’s my first concert and I came to see you.’ And I’m thinking, ‘I don’t want to post anything online that your mom would be mad at me for, because you’re important to me.’
I have this JPM thing: jokes per minute. I’ve worked out that I should get in about 12 punchlines in five minutes. I need them all. It’s like when you walk down a road, if there’s a lamp post that’s out, it’s fine if you can see the next one’s alight, but if there’s two out, that’s a period of frighteningdarkness.
You need fighters like me to battle, because frankly The New York Times and the Washington Post are not going to fight the fights that I do.
KobeBryant was the reason I started playing basketball – always was and will be my favorite player of all time. I love the way he could get his shot off, his footwork down in the post, just his determination to be the best player.
Some years ago, I was fortunate enough to land a reporting job at ‘The Washington Post,’ which pretty much put me in a state of constant awe. Bob Woodward would dish up ice cream sundaes for anyone stuck working on the weekend.
I try as much I can after every live performance to read all the comments my fans post on Facebook and Twitter, as this helps enormously for me to understand straight from fans what worked and what didn’t.
I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement. Garrett and I came to this decision after many conversations. It wasn’t just something we just arrived at one night. It wasn’t based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments.
I look for those moments that are ‘gee whiz’ moments. There’s some ‘gee whiz’ stories in our show, and they can’t be written like A-1 in the Times. They have to be written more like Page 6 in the Post.
Cable shows do 13 episodes. I get that. I can wrap my head around 13 episodes. You make them all, you post them all, and then you get to air them. The network cycle is way more intense. There’s more episodes.
I would like to invest more of my brain space in understanding the history of my city, because whenever I learn about the history of Detroit, it’s always so fascinating, from a little kind of beaver-trading post to the place where automobiles were manufactured.
I’m a perfectionist, so everything I put out needs to be, like, 100 percent. So when it comes to releasing things on my YouTube channel, I triple-quadruple check it before I post it because this has got to be ready for the amount of people who are going to be watching, for sure.
I follow blogs, particularly all the mainpolitical ones – Guido Fawkes, Iain Dale, Coffee House, Paul Waugh, Iain Martin in the Wall Street Journal, and so on. And some American ones, like the Huffington Post, Gawker, Boing Boing; or Eater and DailyCandy, also American, which are about where to go to eat.
My Instagram took on a life of its own and became very different from my Twitter. I never used Instagram to post. I’m into fitness, I used it to follow a few people in the fitness world to see exercise ideas and or nutrition ideas. All of a sudden I felt like I was a part of that community.
My sense is that, when you look at what people such as former Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein have said over the years, you don’t go with a story unless you have two independent sources to confirm it.
It’s funny, you know: my mother-in-law, who doesn’t have an ounce of nerd in her, is just so excited by the fact that I write ‘Batman‘ because she’ll see an article about me in the ‘Washington Post’ or ‘The Wall Street Journal’ or something. And that means so much to me.
It used to be that what was going to be written on my tombstone was ‘Benjamin Wittes, former ‘Washington Post’ editorial writer,’ or ‘Benjamin Wittes, who wasn’t even a lawyer.’ Now it’s just, like, ‘Benjamin Wittes, who’s a friend of Jim Comey’s.’
I think you’re kind of seeing the real me as far as seeing what I post on social media, because I am very much into cooking, and my dogs, and obviously my son, and my lifestyle in Santa Cruz is very laid-back.
Flickr was designed partly to market itself. There are a lot features, in place early on, that let people take their photo, upload it to Flickr and post them elsewhere, on their own Web site or their blog, which meant a lot of incominglinks.
Many newly public companies are able to post a year or two of strong sales growth off a small base, but their growth almost always slows over time, thanks to what investment professionals call ‘the law of large numbers.’
There’s ups and downs of any job. If you worked at the post office, there’s ups and downs. You have your good days, and you have your bad days. If you’re a housewife, you have your good days, and you have your bad days.
Every season, I’ve adjusted. My first couple of years it was still banging in the post and doing all the nitty gritty stuff. Over the years, it’s changed to bigs being able to shoot and run the floor and be more agile, which is good for me because I’m a very agile guy.
As we’ve grown ‘The Daily Muse’ and met contacts who want to collaborate with us, knowing who does what has helped us be clear on who we want our partners to connect with – and makes us look buttoned up, too. SEO firm? Talk to our COO. An editor from the ‘Huffington Post?’ Meet our Editor-in-Chief.
Social media being used to discover new artists is great. There’s not a barrier to enter the industry. People can just post music and share it. And if it’s good enough, and people like it, it will grow.
I grew up with ‘The Denver Post’ and the ‘Golden Transcript.’ There was never a moment that I thought I’d work at the ‘New York Times.’ My goal, starting out, was just to see if I could be a journalist.
Cricket is my life. Before the cancer, I was happy-go-lucky. I used to think about my career and worry about the future. But post it, my thinking has completely changed. I’m happy to eat and breathenormally. I’m happy to have my life back.
I posted something on Instagram saying I am looking for meaningful work. At that time, I was sure my daughter Masaba would be angry. She however, reposted it and wrote another beautiful post. She is a very good writer. That post almost changed things for me. I am glad I did what I did.
It’s this weird binary where I’m getting media images and narrativesthrown at me all the time through something I hold in my hand, and that’s never happened to other generations. But also with this little object in my hand, I have the ability to document policebrutality, or post about the Syrianconflict on Twitter.
If ‘The New York Times’ didn’t exist, CNN and MSNBC would be a test pattern. ‘The Huffington Post’ and everything else is predicated on ‘The New York Times’. It’s a closedcircle of information from which HillaryClinton got all her information – and her confidence.
I have my website, The Ruckus, which is an Internet site, similar to the Funny or Die format, where people post funny videos. I get a chance to rate their videos; they get a chance to blog and kick it with me.
You can’t just think up a move in your head and go, ‘Okay, I’ll just pick somebody up, and I’m just going to throw them backwards into the post.’ You have to think, ‘Would you want someone to do the same thing to you?’
I am not in every picture I post, and my social media is not only for film promotions. I don’t feel comfortable with that. Yes, I’ll post something promotional now and then, but rest of the time, it is like any other social media account.
I have Twitter auto-post to my Facebook page, and I occasionally post things directly to Facebook as well. I’ve always noticed that the direct-to-Facebook approach generates far more likes, but I’ve never actually gone back and run the averages.
Never blog just to put something out there. I would post only things that excite me.
There’s a lot of big guys who can play-make. We put labels like, ‘Oh, he’s a point guard, he’s a center.’ But sometimes your center can play-make for you and not just be the center, boxing out for rebounds and playing in the post.
Pre ‘Scam‘ era, I could go out with my daughter in the evening and just go out for a walk, or do things like buying vegetables or other things for the home. But now, in the post ‘Scam’ era, if I have to do something like that, I have to think about it many times now.
I read so many things because a colleague or a friend will post something, and I’ll be able to learn a tremendous amount only because they drewattention to it. So I try to do that for others, and that’s the great thing about social media. It’s not always a narcissistic cesspool or waste of time.
My father worked in a post office and never made probably more than $8,000 a year as an employee of the post office, so when people can rise up from very modestcircumstances and do well economically, I think that’s a good thing about America, and we should encourage that kind of activity.
My weekends are oases of time and space, where I am able to draw a breath and dive into the stuff I couldn’t get to that week – the great article I bookmarked, the friend whose emails I kept dropping, the blog post I’d meant to write on a subject that wasn’t timely but was still important.
It’s like everybody is shooting something, and everybody’s a filmmaker; everybody can shoot a cat video and post it. So the big thing now is – for people that have talent and have something to say, and are creative, and are capable of making something good – is how do they get attention to it?
When Ford sells a car, a dealer isn’t allowed to take out the engine and put a different one in. When a newsstand sells the Washington Post, no one can go to the newsstand and pay them to rip out the classifiedsection and put their own classified section in – if they could, they would do so.
If you’re posting pictures to platforms like Instagram or Twitter, be selective about the one you post. If I’m capturing a sunset, I’ll take at least 10 pictures. I’ll then filter them using other apps, enhance them. Then, I really pick the best image of perhaps 30.
I think you’re stereotyped after every film. Post ‘Dev D,’ I was only offered bold roles. Similarly, after ‘Margarita With A Straw,’ I was offered roles where I had to play differently-abled people. So, no matter what type of film you work in, people tend to slot you.
There are two things I will always remember. First, a shot against Derby that hit the inside of the post but didn’t go in, and we could only draw 2-2. And then the really big chance against Bayer Leverkusen, two minutes from the end of the Champions League semi-final, when I shot over the bar. That hurt a lot.
When I look at myself, I’m not a big man – I’m a guard. I can do everything on the basketball court. You can name it – pass, post up, shoot the ball, bring the ball up, being a playmaker – so I’m excited to break that stereotype.
I just started using this app called Wine and Dine. It’s like Instagram, but only for food. You post what you’re eating and follow your friends, and then you can say, ‘I wanna try that,’ and so when you go on your ‘wanna try’ list, it’ll tell you where it is.
I’m not specifically attached to anything other than trying to, in my personal life, fight against where I see right wing thinking. Whether it be around my dinner table or on the street or somebody reading the New York Post.
I’m not a big fan of shooting something that looks like it could belong in any movie. I’m not a fan of, okay, ‘wide shot, wide shot, medium shot, close-up, close-up – we’ll figure it out in post.’ I hate that.
I follow all these fashion blogs that are cool and inspire me. I’m not really obsessed with anyone except for the people that I like romantically. I get excited when they post. Sometimes I like to stalk my exes.
