What's the point? I don't get it.
because i thought it had a ridiculous name
but it is very quickly becoming a trite thing to say
or applications or whatever, stripped down to the status updates. Have you seen the video?
"Twitter means you can update your life on the web between emails and blog posts".
THANK FUCKING GOD FOR THAT.
at zombie-centric social commentary because, you know, if we weren't so busy documenting and updating what we do with our lives, maybe we'd actually get to LIVE them.
Facebook is too much - I don't like to reveal too much of myself so the one-sentance format is perfect for me
but yeah - its pretty boring
To paraphrase what I just said about it to my friend:
I think it's like blogs in the sense that some are interesting and worthwhile, some are only interesting and worthwhile to a few people and some are just by people who should have their hands removed.
It's best you would 'follow' things like a band or a record label's Twitter and instead of joining their mailing list you'd be kept up to date on what's happening and what they're doing.
At its worst you are swamped by the minutae of your friends' lives.
think it is probably good if you're following bands or something similar.
I know for a fact that no-one wants to read what I'm up to. Why Joe Public would sign up for it and feel the need to update people with what they're having for tea etc. is beyond me
I mean, it's not like there are multiple "OMG twitter is so shit what's the point!??" threads every day
