It’s All Okay

Everything is boring.

Life is boring, until we know how to deal with it.

People are boring, until we know how to talk to them.

We are boring, until we know how to present ourselves.

We know the limit, try to break it sometimes.

We know the rules, be the bad guys once or twice.

Meet as many people as possible, listen to their stories.

Be a person who makes people feel comfortable when we are around.

Make them feel like home. Make them smile and laugh.

Break their heart. Make them cry. Disappoint them. Because we are human.

Kiss and hug someone we want without a doubt.

Try something new. Some things that we are afraid to do all this time.

We need to sleep, try to stay awake for days.

Be social. But give ourselves some times to be alone as well.

Play some roles.

Ask people. Ask anything. Be curious.

Be honest. But the most important is, be honest to ourselves.

Always right is boring. Make mistakes.

Be kind, but don’t forget to be an asshole sometimes.

Be as adventurous as possible. Be open minded.

Respect and love.

Fight against something.

It’s all okay.

#TWITALK's CREWS AND FRIENDS

TWITALK

BERCAKAP-CAKAP DI TWITALK

Ketika sebuah talk show dikemas dalam 140 karakter, pemanfaatan Twitter tak
sebatas untuk pertemanan saja, tapi juga bisa untuk mengenal berbagai tokoh atau
figur publik secara lebih dekat.

ADA ritual wajib yang dilakukan PancaSyah, Tessi Fathia, dan Pungkas Riandika tiap Kamis pukul 21.00 waktu setempat. Layaknya sebuah tim produksi di stasiun televisi, mereka siap mengawal sebuah acara live talk show yang hadir saban minggu. Bedanya, interaksi tanya jawab ini tak berlangsung dalam pertemuan tatap muka atau dialog radio, tetapi hadir di ranah digital dalam format teks 140 karakter. Dengan nama Twitalk, talk show dihadirkan secara live dari akun @TwitalkID, yang didaulat sebagai pembawa acara.

Adapun narasumber merupakan figur publik yang sekaligus pengguna Twitter. Rutinitas live talk show itu dimulai beberapa saat sebelum pukul 21.00. PancaSyah akan bersiap di depan komputer, menjadi seseorang maestro di balik akun @TwitalkID. Tugasnya cukup merepotkan. Selain memberikan pertanyaan kepada narasumber lewat tweet, ia wajib memantau mention dari berbagai peserta talk show menit demi menit, tanpa boleh ada yang luput tak terbaca. Maklum, dalam konsep Twitalk, pertanyaan tidak disusun secara utuh. Dari 10 pertanyaan yang diajukan, hanya empat yang dipersiapkan tim produksi. Sisanya pertanyaan pilihan yang diajukan peserta yang mengikuti talk show ini. “Jadi seperti seorang pembawa acara, ia harus fokus bertanya kepada narasumber. Tapi di saat yang bersamaan harus mendengarkan semua pertanyaan yang keluar dari para
peserta,” jelas Pungkas, salah seorang penggagas Twitalk.

Walau interaksi hanya dilakukan pada layar komputer, Panca mengaku grogi tiap kali beraksi. “Saya ingat, waktu pertama kali jadi admin, rasanya tegang banget. Karena prosesnya kan sangat bergantung dengan koneksi internet,” katanya. Karena tak selalu di rumah, Panca bisa memoderatori talk show di mana saja. Biasanya, ia mampir ke kafe untuk membuka internet
lewat laptop di sela perjalanan pulang. “Paling apes ya kalau lagi di jalan, saya cuma bisa pakai ponsel. Kalau koneksinya lagi jelek, terpaksa deh minta di-back up dulu,” curhatnya.

Panca memang tak kerja sendiri. Pungkas yang berada di Yogyakarta dan Tessi di Jakarta siap memantau Twitalk lewat ponsel di mana pun mereka berada. Mereka bertugas memberi masukan kepada Panca tentang pertanyaan mana yang boleh dipilih, dan mana yang tidak. “Kadang 10 pertanyaan itu diperoleh dari peserta. Kadang juga dari kita. Prinsipnya adalah bagaimana membuat rangkaian pertanyaan itu bisa menggambarkan sisi lain dari si tokoh,” kata Tessi. Read more of this post

Rape Is Not A Joke…

Do you know people who went through rape are called survivors not victims? Survivor because to survive to go through the “horror” moment they experienced is not an easy thing.

Do you know rape survivors carry their scars for life?

Do you know rape survivors experience nightmares even years after?

Do you know that rape is the WORST abuse anyone can experience? Because it’s not only severing the physical but also mental and dignity.

Do you know that rape is one of the most difficult traumas to be treated?

Do you know rape survivors experience terrible guilt because they felt helpless and unable to defend themselves?

Do you realize that rape is not something you can just fucking joke about? Read more of this post

Capture Screen and Save Draft in SocialScope

Yesterday I saw some people in my timeline asking about how to capture screen in SocialScope application. As we know, when we’re running SocialScope, there is no option to capture screen on its menu. So, here’s the trick if you don’t know yet.

  1. For the first step, you have to install an application to your BlackBerry first. One of the famous applications is “Capture It”. If you don’t have it yet, install it right from your BlackBerry. Just click this away —> Download “Capture It”. It’s only 13.1KB. Very small sized yet helpful application.
  2. If you have already installed “Capture It”. Go to BlackBerry “Options”. Choose “Screen/Keyboard” menu.
  3. Set “Left Side Convenience Key Opens” as “Capture It”.

SocialScope Group and Search Features

In previous post, I forgot to write about “SocialScope Group” and “Twitter List” with its shortcut on the letter “A” on your keypad. Well, I begin this post with that shortcut.

  1. You can add people to your personal SocialScope Group. You create this group by yourself and it only can be viewed on your SocialScope application. First things first, navigate pointer on your screen to a person you want to add.
  2. Let’s say, I wanna add @melaniesubono to a SocialScope Group, so I navigate pointer to one of her tweet, press “A” as a shortcut, then choose “SocialScope Group” as shown above. Then I create new group for Melanie Subono.

SocialScope Shortcuts and Mutes

Okay, this is my promise to write another stuff about SocialScope. I’ll write it step-by-step as what I could remember. Maybe I would like to start it from the shortcuts. Here we go!

  1. Compose a new tweet or message by pressing the letter “U” or “C” on your keypad. You can choose which account you want to use. SocialScope enables you to send 1 message for multi-accounts at one time. Just give the check mark to the desired account. It’s easy.
  2. Press the letter “R” or “E” on your keypad to Reply a tweet. And letter “K” to Reply All.
  3. If you are not patient enough to wait new tweets, press “L” to refresh your timeline and stream.
  4. Press “T” to go to the top of timeline, and “B” to go to the bottom of timeline.
  5. Inside the tweet page, you can use letter “N” and “P” on your keypad to read the next and previous tweets. Read more of this post
