#nbtwip

Twitter is just about the best thing to have happened in the world of social media. Only those who don't use it would be able to come close to disagreeing with that statement. :-) In light of that, I've started a new thing called "#nbtwip":

I'm hoping it will become a gathering point for quick tips and tricks involving NetBeans IDE, as well as the NetBeans Platform. The trick to creating an effective #nbtwip is to remember that the IDE is many things to many people. I.e., you can't refer to "an object" you have to say "Java object" or "PHP object" or "Ruby object" and you can't say "the NetBeans editor". Instead, you need to say "the NetBeans Java editor", or something like that, for example, to clarify as precisely as possible what exactly the tip refers to. For a similar thing, see #bestnb69, which lists the best features in NetBeans IDE 6.9, according to Twitterers (twits?) around the world.

Here's hoping to see lots of #nbtwips! After all, just like all the other Twitter messages (tweets [sent by twits?]), an #nbtwip is extremely easy and quick to write. Which explains a lof of why Twitter is just about the best thing to have happened in the world of social media.
