I love Twitter. It's absolutely brilliant! I know at least a few of you on here have Twitter, so let's start sharing our usernames so we can all follow eachother.

Twitter is about conversation. You exchange info, opinions, what you're doing, links. pictures and more using up to 140 character updates or "Tweets". It's the kind of thing whose usefulness is hard to explain or understand. You really need to use it to see how useful and fun it is.

Facebook is old news. It's a site dedicated to bothering people who hardly know you any more about things they don't care about.

Yeah, really worthwhile.

That's how all these things end up, old news. Just fads that will dissipate gradually away into obscurity, like swine flu

Yeh lol. I still can't believe the behavior of the WHO. Surely as disease which has killed a handful of people worldwide (swine flu - pandemic level 5) should be a whole load of levels lower than an outbreak which killed millions of people (bubonic plague - pandemic level 6). It's insane to raise the threat level that high, it just scares people.

Have not jumped on the Twitter bandwagon and have no intention of starting. Keeping up with the internet fads is tiring. In two years something else will pop up and Twitter will be redundant (or bust seeing as they do not make any money)
