    Too Many Social Networking Sites

    Never Have, And Never Will.

    This is obsession and narcissism at it's finest. I personally don't care what my favorite celebrities are doing or where they are doing it. I don't care if they've cheated on their girf-friend or if they're dog died. It's not my business. It's sad that we worship these celebs and...

    Pointless...

    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 Have Nothing To Tweet

    I can't stand that site. The thought of telling everyone what I am doing every ten seconds does not appeal to me, lol.

    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...

    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 think it's crazy how everyone wants or needs a soap box. Don't they have people IRL to TALK to?! But that aside, similar to FB, they want to post each and every thought in their head. Each and every body function. They want to re-tweet everything else someone says, as if it's...

    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...

    'Tweet'? No Way Man.

    It's nothing specific really, the whole site just doesn't click with me. I mean, interacting with others is called tweeting? Eh, not for me.

    I Don't Tweet

    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...

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

    Lame

    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.

    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...

    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.
