I’ve yet to jump on the Twitter bandwagon. I think it’s going to die out soon anyway.posted over 7 years ago
I think Twitter is rubbish if you want to use it as a social tool to keep up with friends (I’d rather use facebook), but what it is great for is as a marvelous tool for getting news updates.
You get real time news in headline snippets! If you don’t subscribe to news agencies and popular news twitter accts on Twitter, you are losing out ALOT. Basically, you get your news one step later than everyone else. For example, the entire Twitter universe was abuzz about Paula Abdul quitting American Idol once she broke the news on Twitter. Everybody else found out prob a day later through e conventional news channels. Ok, it’s not exactly a brilliant example, but you get e idea.posted over 7 years ago
I never realized how much I have grown accustomed to Twitter because for the last few days my TwitterBerry has been down & I was slightly freaking out, it just felt weird and I kept wanting to update :)
And Twitter is kind of a punchline within itself, I mean I get embarassed just saying that “I tweeted!” But I find it much easier than Facebook or Myspace, there’s less hassle. And I find out information so quickly which is definitely nice.
I don’t use Twitter or any other social networking sites (I do have a Tumblr, though, to post pictures, and now have a Chictopia) I think it’s really sad that some people are so self-absorbed that they feel they have to share insignificant moments in their lives with everyone else. Like anybody actually cares. Maybe they should go outside and actually talk face to face with the people on their contacts lists. I understand that Twitter could be useful if you’re travelling and want to keep in touch with family and friends to let them know your OK, or something like that, but silly posts like, “is going to make breakfast” are really unimportant and annoying.
Sorry for the long post!
twitter seems realllyyyy stupid. like who really cares what you’re doing all the time?
i understand why celebs have them, but not normal people.
I gave in to the internet and made one. I dont even know what to do with it…:/
I started mine to follow bands I liked so that I would know when they came into town. But I often update mine as well.posted over 7 years ago

i think it’s pretty stupid but i can understand certain examples of when it’s handy. i just have no interest in it. even with facebook i only update my status like once every other day. if twitter takes over facebook like facebook did with myspace i’m going to kill myself. it’s just plain tiring.posted over 7 years ago
