does anyone here have twitter? let's discuss twitter, why you have it or why you don't. i really hate facebook, so let's share twitter handles!

(i figured this forum needed some kind of new thread...)

I use twitter to follow a handful of journalists and organizations, basically for news. I'm not going to add any of you though, no offense, because I have a couple friends on there already and honestly their posts just get in the way of what i'm there to find. I love you all but I don't want you mucking up my feed.

I always thought I hated twitter because I assumed it was just a bunch people tweeting about the size of their shits (no offense if any of you use it this way, I understand the temptation). I started using it because I wanted to follow a couple people specifically, and since then I've found more and more things to follow and it seems to be really pretty awesome despite its flaws. I'm sure the tweeting-about-your-poops version of twitter is out there and thriving, but I never have to see it.

The 140 character thing is annoying, but most of the tweets I get are basically links to articles with a short description, so it doesn't rear its ugly head too often.

Twitter is okay. I like to read silly things all the time, so it usually works pretty well for that.

the cool thing about twitter is you can quickly follow or unfollow people which makes it easy to cut through the crap. i pretty much follow whatever fits my fancy and if it slightly annoys me, it's gone.

dimi why don't you make a news list so you don't have to see your friends's bullshit? or tell them to get better at twitter i guess

I haven't learned twitter well enough to know what that means. But also because almost all of the things I follow are exactly what I want to find, and then there are two or so people i'd feel bad about removing. Seems like it's easier to see their stuff now and then and sigh, rather than organizing a new list that is 95% the same as my normal twitter.

I never really got into it. I have an account that I sometimes remember the password for, in case I need to access content or people only on twitter.

I literally hate all modern communications media, personally. I only use guestbooks on various geocities sites. Or, if I'm feeling sociable, the CompuServ chat rooms.

Hi this is communications giant "CompuServe". We were purchased by Netscape a few years back. They were just too big for us. hahahahaha holy shit. Mozilla and Prodigy made offers, but you know, our shareholders went with Netscape, in the end.

I tweet for library stuff & I'm in charge of my curling club's Twitter account. I never read anyone's tweets though because it's just way too much.

Why? Seems pr jaded. Get with web 2.0 dog. Future waves.

I don't have a twitter. Though it keeps coming up in different conversations in which someone usually tries to cajole me into the wonders of twitters. I can barely remember to respond to friends that text me, I think if I had an account...

Just read Dimi's post. I think I'm beginning to see the light.

All of the stereotypes about how dumb and useless twitter is are definitely real, but also you determine what you see and you don't have to follow anyone who posts stupid shit.
