It makes me really sad to see my baby shattered in a matter of hours.
Especially when my partners have written tons of articles just for noobs to get acquainted with Twitter and Web 2.0 technology. There is a ton of great ORIGINAL content at TweetForum, and I will make a post in the future dedicated to showing you guys those great articles.
I know you guys make fun of me, and think I'm some kind of clown because of who I am, or because of my vocabulary? But you folks have to understand that in order for us to spread information, we need to simplify these mediums as MUCH
as possible. Roughly 70% of my friend's don't know what Twitter is, and while most may have heard the name on the news, they still simply don't get it. Now a concept such as TweetForum, (A forum that Tweet's to individuals who sign up for updates in an account, and updates the users on every single reply) , now that's something that they can REALLY
understand lol. Seriously my friends stare in awe, you guys laugh.
It really breaks my heart that I come to a so called "geeks circle", and I get chastised about my dreams that I have worked so hard to build, the same way I do in real life from people who don't get any of it. I thought you guys would instantly get it, but let me explain it again one more time. I'm sorry if I have ever came off as a tool to anyone here. I was just being ultra-defensive of my work, and looking back now I should have taken it a bit easier, and done things differently, but I am human and we all make mistakes, it doesn't excuse this hacking though, and the people responsible will hopefully be punished, in this life or the next, by god himself. We are all connected, and this was just some seriously bad karma that was unleashed to the community. This goes back to my original thread of BitcoinMiner telling me to display my site for the community.
THIS IS WHY I WAS AFRAID OF POSTING IT UP. BITCOIN DOES NOT NEED TWEETFORUM, BUT TWEETFORUM SURE DOSEN'T NEED BITCOIN TO BE SUCCESSFUL EITHER. WHAT WE OFFER IS A SERVICE FOR PEOPLE TO GET THE BEST OF 2 PLATFORMS THEY LOVE.
I think developers as a whole have really complicated ideas that usually yield little revenue. I feel that to make money on the Internet one must conserve time wisely, and maximize profitability, while offering a standard service that anyone can use.
Let me tell you a little bit about TweetForum
because I think there is some confusion on what I have created.
TweetForum is a multi-purpose general forum running on the SMF platform, which just so happens to be the same platform this forum uses. Simple-Machines has been tested to be a bullet proof forum, but I can't say the same about my mods, or any mods of people that I have hired in the past. That is why TweetForum will get a full security inspection so that this never happens again. I am very serious about security, and transparency, if I find out who's behind this, I will report you to the police. What you did was a crime and you should be ashamed of yourself.
Now what is TweetForum? (I will use some marketing terminology so if your allergic please don't read
TweetForum will be a highly socialized commercial forum that will connect every post, reply, and account of choosing to Twitter. TweetForum is also programmed to communicate with every single Social 2.0 media network in the market. If you don't know what Web 2.0 is, that's ok, you can read the exact words of millions here,
"A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for themhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0
What I did with tweetforum was match different twitter accounts to content specific boards, programmed rss bots to parse syndicated content on these boards, and built an auto hash/tag system to generate tags on bot postings. The bot is programmed to scan the entire internet for content-specific texts/videos/and ebooks. We are going even further in TweetForuum with future development on linking hashtags and @'s to their respective pages, and having social pages for each forum account, so you get a Facebook, and linkedin effecy. This forum will be THE FORUM for everyone. There is already some epic forums online (Gaia, IGN, and a few others), I really don't see why mine isn't next on the list. This has taken me a ton of research, and the site is fully SEO'ED and we have actually only been around for 2 weeks.
Diversity is never a bad thing especially when it comes to bitcoins, we NEED
diversity to survive as a community. I love all of you and I am truly sorry if I came off as arrogant or brisk on my original threads. I now realize that I may have not taken the appropriate time to explain TweetForum, and maybe if I would have taken that time some of you guys would have appreciated the amount of work and time I put into it more. I am working to restore TweetForum, and it will roll back to about 3 days, and then I am hiring a fellow forum member (the system admin from bitcams) to do a multi-site inspection. I suspect that my FTP password may have been to easy, and the hackers got in through my FTP.
