Twitter?
« on: June 13, 2008, 05:39:30 PM »
I have no real reason to be Tweeting - I do not own a web start up or anything - but I Tweet to feel modern, in a pathetic way. Is anybody else Tweeting? I'm 'wowser' on the site.

It's intrigued me for a little while now but mostly because of the hype surrounding it.  If you read Techcrunch you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was absolutely essential for every human on the planet to use Twitter but I still haven't quite succumbed to it or FriendFeed yet.  It also seems that once people are heavily into Twitter, if there's any downtime they seem to get suicidal pretty quickly.  It's addictive like crack to some people, it would seem.

I'm crumpet on twitter.  I'm not on much, because I can't seem to access it from the school wireless, but I do tweet on occasion. :)

I recently joined as well. Not as awesome as the entire tech world makes it seem, but I do enjoy the marketing side of it. I don't follow many "friends" as they either don't update much or are not members. But companies could use twitter for their advantage. I follow Macworld, for example, and any new article they post they twitter about which then leads me to check it out.
