I Don't Do Twitter

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,129 People


    I tried it briefly, but quit.  It all was silly trivial stuff and people giving out waaaaaaaaaay too much information.  On top of that, I had nothing to say most of the time, as I prefer to NOT spurt trivia and TMI's.So yeah.  To me Twitter is just lame.

    If you can summarize your thoughts in less

    than 200 characters or whatever, what does that say about you as a person? Maybe it's a skill, but to me it just seems like people are unable to speak full thoughts on there.

    A Life ?

    No One Cares What You Had For Lunch.

    I have never had a twitter account, nor will I ever make one. I know to dislike it by what I've found out through the media, 'cause let's face it, stumbling across facebook and twitter is inevitable (unless you live under a rock) these days. I've had a facebook account, but grew...

    They Say Don't Knock It Till...

    I haven't tried it but that's because I get addicted to social networking sites (like this one) and often times get sucked into ego battles. I don't want to get sucked into ego battles. What does twitter do beyond updating one's status of what they're doing and posting pictures...

    Well I do but not much.

    I'm too verbose that is the problem - 140 characters! PAH! I know that actually saying what you need to concisely is a very useful skill but still... look at the number of "misconstrued" Tweets there have been? One of my first tweets was "I think brevity obfuscates the...

    Dont Understand The Big Deal About It

    I don't even know how to do twitter, if i had even wanted to do it, which I don't. I just stick to here and facebook. I guess I just don't get the whole big deal of what twitter is about.

    Never Got The Point.

    It seems like all twitter is, is constant status updates. I can get the same thing and more from other websites. If I want to see what my friends are up to then I'll go on facebook or simply ask them. I guess another purpose of twitter is to follow celebrities, but I really...

    I just don`t "get" the hype behind Twitter ?! I signed up and messed around on it for like an hour or so. I find it to be a complete waste of time ! I really dot understand why so many people are into it ? It`s pointless as far as Im concerned !

    I once had twitter and used it

    for a good couple of years but I eventually went cold turkey and stopped using it in July 2013. The reason being when i first started using it only people who had interesting things to say or talk about used it. It was great because it was like an escape from all the nastiness...

    You Can't Find Me

    I don't belong to twitter and I don't have a facebook. My Space,.......... that is when I have the house to myself. No one needs to know where I am or what I am doing all the time.Plus I find it really weird when I hear grown men tell me they just got a tweet.

    I need a platform that lets me talk

    as much as I want. I find it too restricting to only be able to say a small amount of words at a time. Now I can torture people with my verbosity :P

    You'll find I am the opposite. Besides that, most social networking has more than just status updates anyway. That's much better.

    Didn't care much for it.  I done it for a couple of weeks and got bored and I also ran out of things to say.  Honestly who cares what a person is doing at the time of the tweet?  I mean who cares if your eatting, brushing your teeth, going to work or anything else.  I hadn't...

    I find Twitter very pointless. You can't say enough in only 160 characters. I would rather talk on Facebook. At least you could write more than 160 characters.

    I don't get the fascination with twitter. Even the name fits the triviality of the concept. Who is so arrogant that they feel the need to post their every action all the time. As a means of communication it is sadly lacking too. If all you thoughts are so limited that they can be...
