    If You Don't "get" Twitter You're Just Old.

    Ok, I'm old then. I never understood why anyone would tweet all the mundane things they do every day. I signed up for it just to see what it was all about, but it mostly bores me to tears. One exception though: during the Iranian election protests when the regime shut down the...

    Twitter And The Rest Of Them Are Stupid

    Twitter may be stupid, but the other social networking sites are equally stupid.

    Quite apart from it being a great time waster,

    I see no reason to send brief messages and get rude ones back.

    Worse Than Facebook!!

    I started a twitter account about 6 months ago or so and deleted it shortly after. It's probably the stupidest thing I've ever seen in my life. Facebook ****** me off too, but at least I can get some people to talk to me on there. I couldn't get ANYONE to give a **** about me on...

    What's There To Like???

    Twitter is so damn annoying! I don't get it why the hell would you want to tell every freaking people you know what your doing and with who and etc... To me it's simple, if you are a nobody or even a somebody who just tweets nonsense, you're so full of ****...some facts you just...

    I have never had Twitter, and I think I'm going to keep it that way. The reason why is because I've examined other peoples' Twitters, and they make no sense. There are all of these exchanges and cross-posts from other users that just muck up my flow of thought. And the...

    I Get It

    I opened a twitter account, not because I want to join the throngs that supposedly rush to it every day but as a technologist. There are a few uses for this tool of communication. On the business side, its a great way for people to stay in touch with your company. Imagine a...

    Just Don't Get It.

    Okay, I'll admit it. I have a twitter account. I still think it's stupid and I don't get it. I read the tweets and just think over and over, what is this stuff?

    And Boring

    I signed up for twitter because they talk about twitter everywhere. On tv and the news and everything. It took me all of 20 minutes to get completely bored out of my mind. I guess I'm just not cool or interesting enough for twitter.   Oh well. Life goes on.

    Celebrity Tweets

    What annoys me is that somehow what celebrities tweet is considered news. So what if Katy Perry stops following Russell Brand on Twitter? Oh my goodness, he is still following her though!? Blah. How is this news? It's all the time, some celebrity tweeted this or that. Oh, and...

    i'm sorry, but wtf is the point of twitter? i don't get it. i know people who are totally obsessed, but to me it just seems totally pointless. no offense to any hardcore twitterers out there, but personally i think we should save tweeting for the birds and get on with our lives...

    What Is the Point??

    I signed my mom up for it, because she wanted to be friends with the celebrities (of course!) and it was just weird and confusing to me.

    New York Times  April 8, 2009 by Ellen Barry MOSCOW— A crowd of more than 10,000 young Moldovans materialized seemingly out of nowhere on Tuesday to protest against Moldova’s Communist leadership, ransacking government buildings and clashing with the police...

    I Just Don't Get It...

    Back before Twitter even got popular, if you can believe that, a very techy friend of mine made me get an account. He told me it would be all the new rage, etc. I went on and didn't see much point in it, honestly. You say what you're doing in 140 characters or less...and....that...

    It's All About "ME"

    That's why I hate Twitter so much. Blogs are bad enough ("Here - read about ME... my worthless ramblings are worth reading because I typed them out into a blog!") What elevates Twitter to the top of the "stupid" heap is it's very concept.  Who on...
