Twitter user RobM163 exists and was created along with this comic (presumably by Randall). He tweeted a few times about various disasters on April 5th, 2010, and later on the 22nd about Iceland's not being a great tourist destination (due to Eyjafjallajökull). [Whoa, I care about stuff 3 years old! Ah well.] --Quicksilver (talk) 02:43, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

RobM163's first post was the day before the xkcd comic. Z (talk) 17:14, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

All the way here in 2016 it seems worth mentioning: the ubiquity of smartphones means peer-to-peer chat is positioned to survive this type of service disruption.

What about twitterer? Twitter user and tweeter are better alternatives for OCs. Might be a reference to (this:)). Well, Twitter user is too long when tweeting during an earthquake (and the tweet may exceed the 140), and tweeter might be in reference to this: Tweeter (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

The USGS ENS one from the title-text works for me. Unless you mean another. 23:16, 25 June 2024 (UTC)

Has anyone noticed that this should be x now, not twitter? -- Jnutlikesxkcd (talk) 01:21, 8 July 2024 (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Really? Aww man... Just checked, and you're right. Look, I can't keep track of every little fiddly rebranding that happens when I'm busy trying to get my Geocities page back up on FIDONet with all the latest info on what Napster hits are available on Vine... 02:58, 8 July 2024 (UTC)
