Kell on Earth - Lesson about Twittering at work
“Women do funny things,” Ms. Dorner said. “They do things like work very hard and expect to be noticed for it — and they’re not, because it doesn’t work like that.”
Instead, Ms. Dorner argues that women need to take a page from their counterparts in pushing their own agenda and advancement. “I don’t think we need to suddenly flip and all be acting in a male way,” Ms. Dorner said, “but you can learn something from male behavior.”

Did you know that Netflix adds about 5 titles to its instant streaming service each day? The best way to find out about these new Netflix instant titles is to follow the twitter account @netflix_instant. At about 6am they tweet out the new titles that have just become available on the service. If you want to take your obsession to the next level, you can turn on mobile notifications and have them sent directly to your phone.
Tracking titles with this method has given me early alerts about some recent high profile new releases.
-Mad Men season 5 was available on March 25th. I received the tweet from @netflix_instant before Netflix was able to ping my iPad app with the news in the evening.
-Holy Motors – this amazing award winning French film became available March 26th only about 6 months after its theatrical release.
-The Hunger Games just became available yesterday.
This also serves as a general discovery method on it’s own. Also added yesterday was the film Madchen in Uniform (1958). A film I had never heard of, but after reading a user review I learned that it was a remake of one of the first lesbian films made in 1931. Now that’s a title I doubt I would find on my own if I was just browsing through Netflix menus.
