That last series of posts almost justifies the entire existence of the site.
well im on it. what do you make of *that*?
just as I do for all twitter users.
I did a thread about it like a year ago and don't feel like re-iterating, but basically, while it can have its uses, it's mainly for toss.
Yes, it's basically narcissism, but I find the way it works very easy and it's cool to follow some interesting sites - newspapers and journalists and bloggers.
I said it has its uses. But it's still mainly toss.
Slash cop-out of an argument.
Twitter is exactly like life and existence arguably- It's a collection of tiny fragments about people telling you about themselves. It's like being at a giant party and having to sift through the crowd to find people on your wavelength or someone to amuse you.
but it's not really like that, is it? You only add people you already know are on your wavelength/amuse you, no? And if not, you're undoubtedly wasting many an hour.
it's picking through snappy bits of information from everyone/everything which interests you vaguely and delving better into it.
MC Hammer is awesome too, he's on a tour of America giving food to the needy. It's a bit inspirational. Maybe twitter isn't so bad after all. Shaq does good twitter. I liked it when he could sense other twitterers but was angry that they weren't coming to say hello to him.
