Like running for the long jump and tripping over the white line.

is there a LESS asked question in the western world than `I wonder what philip schofield is thinking right now?`
I can tell you he was very unhappy about the Apple/Google maps issue last week.
Fight the Power.
because apple thought it was IN the canal whereas it's actually NEXT TO the canal!!!!111111 It was about 3 metres out!!!!111
They had some `technology` `expert` on talking about it.
My point? Can everyone shut up about iPhones and twitter and shit and talk about other stuff like we used to in the old days.
Don't really want to follow celebrities. Not that interested.
are the single most stupid and pointless product of the internet #dontsueme
People don't say `SUE ME` anymore.
I'm going to try and kickstart that again.
Don't like it? SUE ME.

i agree dave, i agree #agreement
CG: Couldn't afford an iphone?
hmmmm interesting just isn't going to cut it amongst the death threats and holocaust references
I could do with a laugh.
For that matter yours as well
Most days he goes "tried to troll so and so today" etc.
Alan McGee bit once.
What kind of man brings his trolling up in conversation at the dinner table? The saddest of all men, that's who
who are we talking about here - no time to scroll up.
You're all just bitter your lunches are not interesting enough to tweet about.
who I want to hear thoughts from all the time, spelled out in 140 characters.
I'm not sure we do?
YOU RACIST FUCK PIG
it's a minefield Darcy.
It's a tough world for racist homophobes these days, no doubt about it.
I love twitter, it's my friend
I try to avoid it. Every time i do dip into it it just seems full of very racist, very angry, very sick sorts who should probably just try to get a bit of fresh air.
I suspect it's alright if you just use it now and again, and only follow people who are genuinely interesting and not, y'know, vile racists, but some people can't put it down, check it every five minutes. That can't be a positive thing, irrespective of what content you're looking at.
Idk, i just think 95% of people aren't worthy of having any sort of public pedestal to air their views, though i guess there have always been mediums for them to do so, just that they're changing and becoming more accesible.
I'm sure there are positive things about social media sites, but they're almost certainly outweighed by them being breeding grounds for mistruths, intimidation, bullying and vile, below-the-belt abuse.
then I'd suggest you're following the wrong people, bro.
i mean from reading trending stuff, or searching using hashtags.
have all eventually got it.
You get what you look for. I follow sports, political and finance journalists. They tweet their and other articles and I read them on my phone on my commute.
I bet i can out-not-get-twitter ANYONE
I can't work out what the criteria are.
but meo, meths and forzaborza agree with me on this matter.
I'm going to join twitter.
get out of that one Rommel.
I'd totally subscribe or whatever it is you do
I might join up and follow you, just in case you come up with any more of these witty sickburns I can steal.
most of the time.
I know what's going on (usually).
I get into it now and again (and it's good to check trending topics for early unconfirmed/ spurious news reports and scandal) but I tend to forget about its existence for long periods at a time.
so it's alright by me
from twitter I have won 2 moog pocket pouches from moog, a book about Detroit Techno's origins called Techno Rebels by Dan Sicko from Ghostly, VIP guestlist + 1 to Boiler Room Berlin from Tigersushi/Joakim and some really nice green tea and CDs from The XX, Gil Scott Heron & Vampire Weekend from Richard Russell of XL recordings
not bad eh?
unless you bagged all of those goodies in four solitary tweets, in one single week of using twitter.
he's got time to waste on here. the dick.
can someone tweet that to #bamos or something?
bamos appleby ?@applebamos
@TheOGB Tell him to come over here and say that. I'm busy.
i hate that people talk about it
i hate that people link to one line tweets that are supposed to be hilarious but i just end up staring at for a minute trying to find where the humour is supposed to be
If I want language like that I'll subscribe to John McCririck's Twitter account (@TheMcCririck)
a) tweeting that i've updated 'my' website with a news post that contains proper information and grammar and is, to summarise, actually readable, cos, y'know, it can have more than 140 characters. If RSS, the proper tool for the job were more widely adopted, then this waste of manual effort wouldn't need doing.
b) searching for real time newsy/opiniony stuff that google hasn't picked up on yet.
Aside from that, it mostly just annoys me, with it's shitty shitty shitty design/interface. And following a conversation is a fast track to insanity, unless you're following all parties concerned, and checking for updates on a minute by minute basis. Therein lies it's success (and shitness) - you have to keep checking the drip drip of information to get the most out of it.
two thousand and LATE GRANDAD
it'll certain show them what's what.
