Jetpack, Twitter and the land of missing cross posts

Last night my Word Press site coughed and told me I was not connected to Twitter any longer.  I had to go reconfigure and reconnect three times, but in the end, after deleting several broken copies of the connection, I was able to get a clean link.  Then this morning my Cleric Journal did not cross post.

Imagine my delight on discovering this.  Technology is such a boon, I’m always surprised how annoying it can be.  I’m old enough to remember a world before email, before the web, before photo copiers.

The web, computers, word processors, email and chat features have definitely made my life as a writer significantly different then when I wrote my first novel at the age of fourteen on a manual typewriter.

We are such creative and innovative primates that it is honestly amusing when things don’t work, especially in context of where we’ve come in just my lifetime.

So, thanks for the jetpack, future world, I don’t know how I’ve survived without it.

    Sounds like Twitter’s connection API is being wonky again. At this stage in my life, I’m more impressed when things work than annoyed when they don’t.
