    Twitter, Facebook, Myspace - I Hate Them All.

    Twitter, FaceBook, MySpace, all of those sites and all of the ones like them are no go zones for me. They're a waste of time to me. It's a bunch of people talking meaningless sh!t that nobody cares about. Internet forums on the other hand are good. I like them. I especially like...

    I Think It's Pointless

    It's basically that same little status update thingy that's on AIM, FACEBOOK, MYSPACE, MSN messenger, YAHOO messenger, GMAIL, GOOGLE TALK, GOOGLE CHAT, and whatever other social networking thing we've got going on here. and whats worse, is it doesn't even have all the OTHER...

    Just Like With Commercial Radio...

    they said "who would pay for a signal sent to nobody in particular", I consider Twitter a text message sent to nobody in particular with a very limited amount of information per message.

    Tweet?

    Birds tweet.  I don't.  I never understood the reason for wanting to broadcast to the world what you are doing at any given moment.  You can't live it if you are always notifying everybody about it.  My live experiences are more than little one sentence announcements.  Sorry...

    Waste Of Time

    What is the big deal with twitter? So you could post every single pointless thing that you done in your life. Besides you are better off using facebook or myspace because of line restrictions. If you want your life to be one grand public spotlight, then twitter is perfect is...

    What's Twitter?

    I'm not exactly sure what Twitter is. People say follow me on Twitter. Why in hell would I want to follow anybody? If I know someone well enough to be concerned with what they're doing, I'll call on the phone or text or email. So far as celebrities who get paid to endorse...

    I have no idea about twitter. It came out when I was no longer in school so I couldn't pick up on it from the other kids, and I dont watch tv at all. I don't really even know what twitter is to tell the truth.

    Social Media

    I don't Twitter or Facebook. I don't Skype either, I try to stay as private as possible. My experiences I may talk about here are very real and so are my opinions on various subjects. One reason I believe in my privacy, I say what I really feel.

    It's stupid. The amount of followers shouldn't

    determine your social status. Hitler has millions. Jesus only had 12. Plus no one cares about every little detail in your life. Don't forget the snobby celebs who are to good to follow back!

    instead of letting a few hundred people know what I'm thinking, I would rather keep my thoughts to myself. That's prob why I only have family on my fb page and I rarely look at that.

    Waste Of Time

    I used to be on twitter because I wanted to keep up with what some of my friends were doing. It's basically just an extra, mini facebook account filled with useless updates. I quit because it took up too much time to check in and try to update.

    or a Facebook. I tried them but couldn't get into it. EP is about the closest thing I have to a social network. I think it's better because you can choose what relates to you and find people that share your interests, not just reading lame posts.
