A head-scratcher: "After Abbott’s opening remarks, reporters were escorted out of the meeting room so a more open discussion of topics can take place, the governor’s staff said." twitter.com/statesman/stat…
David Axelrod's @CNN show is called "The Axe Files," lol, did they have a whole meeting just to pick that name? cnn.it/2IFbRTi

Honestly, this might be the loopiest I’ve ever been on a Webb Report podcast segment. I blame it on that damn @webbeditor’s ridiculous charm and bonhomie. And carbs. twitter.com/loveaustin360/…

When I said it, though, I was blindfolded and tied up in HDMI cables by a ruthless band of video pirates who called themselves The Full Duplex. twitter.com/512tech/status…
You don't have to buy super-expensive HDMI cables, but an older, cheap cord may actually cause problems with certain kinds of video streams, says @omarg. atxne.ws/2KFY6QK https://t.co/hcpHhh1W9Z

“The answer to gun violence is not to take guns away, the answer is to strengthen the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. The problem is not guns, it’s hearts without God.” — Abbott So, God will be at these talks, presumably. twitter.com/statesman/stat…
How news changes the conversation on Twitter https://t.co/O1FLVIXO9c
Here’s the most absurd thing: if you’re a high school student and you get organized and passionate about not wanting you and your fellow students slaughtered with guns and you speak out, there are people who will shout you down, say you know nothing and bully you. That’s America.
By the way, this was the stamp on the letter: https://t.co/vsGydUM6ib
What I want to know is how did this anonymous person find out about my secret startup, BikeDicks? #bikedicks #igetsnailmail ift.tt/2Ipax6V https://t.co/iUfAIE7JhU
 
I guess i can make it a nonprofit and make it a dot-org. BikeDicks for charity.
It turns out Chicago-style popcorn is cheddar + caramel, not what I had envisioned, popcorn stuffed into a four-inch pizza pie crust surrounded by hot tomato sauce.
I'll be on @TexasStandard in a bit to talk about the Uncanny Valley of voice technology. Do not fear our creepy voices, they are human!

One more #MayTheFourth thing to share: @TheLCP has launched a Kickstarter for “¡Estar Guars!” our next full-length Latino Comedy Project show, to be performed in exactly one year. Please support it, it’s gonna be dope as Fett. kck.st/2jv0nmn https://t.co/gJXTZrn5cQ

Yes, I”m a journalist’s salary, but there’s more to it than that: twitter.com/512tech/status…
 
What was the last car you bought? Did you pay for options like heated seats, leather seating, specific paint color, upgraded infotainment system? Waiting 2 years with your reservation and being shocked by the pricing model makes me think you haven't paid much attention
 
I just paid off a 2014 Prius.
 
I think I made it quite clear in the article that I wasn’t paying much attention.
 
What color did your brother get? I still haven't made up my mind but I'm also waiting for Dual Motor as long as it doesn't come at the cost of missing out on the full $7500 tax rebate.
I’ll be on @TexasStandard in a bit, talking about apps and tools for personal protection. Do you have any favorites?

Just to get my mind off the nightmare that was this morning: are you a college student or know one who works around SXSW in Austin instead of going out of town for Spring Break? Let's talk.
I had a chance to see a big robot take apart some iPhones and it was neat. (Writing the story and everything that followed: not so neat) twitter.com/512tech/status…
I have never been screwed over so badly by a story embargo than today. Absolutely furious.
 
Name names. Public payback always feel good, but I’m petty that way.
 
And like a sucker I STILL wrote a good story about it. But we can't run it yet for various reasons that would take too long to get into. Not worth all the stress, I can tell you that.
