  • Ok, so who here is Twittering?

    To be honest I thought it was pretty lame at first, but now I'm hooked to it. Such a great way to get instant news on the subjects you're interested in while also keeping up to date with others who have the same interests.

    So if you're twittering drop your link and I'll follow

    But first, please do tell me what Twitter is all about.

        This is twitter!

        "I am making a cup of tea"
        "I am drinking the tea"
        "I have finished the tea, it was nice"

        That video explains it very well and funny too.

        "I'm twittering Didn't you get my tweets?, I just twotted all over the place" ..... Classic!

        And No! I do not use it!

            I think Twitter is obnoxious. I whole-heartedly agree with the above video.

                That's the same way I felt about it as well and thought it was pretty pointless at first. That was until I found out that there are a handful of reporters "tweeting" from Afghanistan providing great insight as to what's going on on the ground out there. There's also Admr Mike Mullen, CENTCOM, USAF, the Army, and tons of current or former members of the service using twitter. So, it's a great way to get instant updates, news, and opinions all from one source.

                It's especially nice when I'm not at home and have all of these news articles and updates going straight to my phone. It all depends on who you're following though as far as how useful it can be.

                For anyone that owns a business/website it's also an amazing tool that can be used as free marketing.

                  Yeah I am sure there are people using it for good reasons and putting it to good use, but if you go to the site and watch the video, you will see they are marketing it as a tool to stay in touch with friends and "tweeting" each other about mundane things like books you are reading or that you are mowing the lawn?

                  I think I will stick to windows live messenger, skype, yahoo messenger, email, mobile phones and good old face to face conversations.

                  Maybe if they named it something more macho I might use it...lol... :)

                    Hahaha, that video was perfect!!

                    Read the testimonials on twitter's own website, its like they're admitting they're mindless social drones or something, pretty funny:
                    *
                    When I first started doing it, I thought, 'geez, not another website to worry about updating and checking', but now I'm glad I did it.

                    * Twitter is the telegraph system of Web 2.0.
                    Nicholas Carr, Author and Technologist
                    * If you aren't familiar with Twitter, it is one of those things, like MySpace, that sounds totally ridiculous and stupid when you first hear about it. But once you start using it, you realize how much fun it is.

                      I don't Twitter. I don't even Facebook anymore. I only used it when my brother was in Afghanistan last year, and since his return, I don't log on to Facebook much at all, maybe once a month just to see what might be posted there?

                        I know what Twitter is primarily because it's been the subject of spoof in Doonesbury the last few weeks.

                        It's like blogging for people with ADD. 40 characters per "article", IIRC.
                        Dude, seriously, WHAT handkerchief?

                        snooggums' density principal: "The more dense a population, the more dense a population."

                        Iliana: "You're a great friend but if we're ever chased by zombies I'm tripping you."

                          Twitter = free text messaging for cell phones

                          -end of line
