I don't hate it nor use it, but it's becoming the new "thing" as even news channels are saying lets check our twitter account and see what Aston Kutcher has to say about this.
LOL

I actually joined it today, got confused, and logged off.

But give it a week or so and I will become addicted.
Here's what the critics are saying about Hanzi_G:

I do. It's fun, and it's interesting. Tweets from my good friends go to my cell phone. Keeps me from being entirely bored. People typically only post interesting things.

There was a thread on this a couple days ago.

edit: Yeah, I only post one once or twice a day also. Sometimes none. The fun would be dead the second anyone did more 3 or 4.

I joined for the soul purpose of getting updates from Andrew Stockdale from Wolfmother about the new album and tour dates and band workings and such.

Also, a lot of good bands have started joining. Palace of Fire, with 2 members who were in Wolfmother, also joined, and that's about the only thing they update on. Same with The Parlor Mob. So really, I think it's simple and helpful. The Facebook status thing gets to complicated and it's just easier on Twitter.

I love it.

Follow the guys from Cyanide and Happiness. They're freaking hilarious.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

i just think its kinda dumb, its is funny though how much people care what celebritys are up to they're like "lol, brad pitt just tweeted me that he had eggs for breakfast, and then he took a shower omg!" or "holy crap jessica simpson just tweeted me that shes a ****ing retard, my life's complete!" i honestly think the whole twitter thing will blow over when people realize how stupid it is but hey, shamwows still around and brinigng in the bucks so maybe the human race will once again prove me wrong with their stupidity
90% of teens say they would cry if they saw the Jonas Brothers about to fall off a skyscraper, put this in your sig if ur one of the 10 % who would shout "JUMP MUTHA****ERZ!"

yeah twitter is no good. It assumes I have access to the internet 24/7 via a smart phone or something. And some people twit about how they ****. They are twitter ****ters. This is a failed system.

Does ANYONE follow celebrities? People that don't use twitter seem to think so, but, no. They don't. Who would?

nah, you can do it from a cell phone. It doesn't have to be a good phone either. Any phone that can text.

^and yeah. You should search before you make threads.

Was there this much opposition to e-mail when it was invented?
I don't see how anyone can be anti-twitter. I can understand not wanting it, but there's no reason to hate a method of communicating with your friends. I bet you hate the telephone too...

Actually, I do. It's hard and less enjoyable to talk someone when you can't see their facial expressions. Plus if you have the pauses, it makes it that much weirder.

hmmm twitter..heard of it. But what exactly does this site do? Anyone care to elucidate?

I have an account that I check pretty frequently, but I don't update/"tweet" that often. I don't have anything that interesting to say, so why bother? I just use it to get exclusive info on bands I like and stuff. And a few of my friends use it but I un-followed a few of them when they got annoying... ("just took a $hit." ... "just wiped." ... "washing my hands."... "forgot to flush." ... "went back to flush" ... "leaving the bathroom now" ... "walking down the hallway" ... "entering the livingroom" ...you get the point)

I play piano and guitar.
Do you play piano?
Add me.

People compare it to Facebook status updates, but I've never used facebook, so I wouldn't know. It's more like myspace bulletins, but you can send or receive them from your phone.

The telephone is a device that revolutionized the borders we had on communication years ago, e-mail as well. Comparing them to Twitter is just flatline dumb.

What's the point of Twitter when you can just talk to people over MSN, people you probably know in person, rather than strangers who "become your friends", or tweet, or whatever the hell they do on Twitter. It's a pointless fad that people make millions on, which is the most annoying factor. Millions of dollars to manage an Internet site filled with teenagers and some of the saddest adults on the face of this earth, that and to post ads all over the place. At least dating sites have some form of purpose, what the hell is the point of these things?

Okay, here's an example of an advantage of Twitter:

The other day my friend won free concert tickets via Twitter, because the artist held a competition exclusively through his Twitter.

It's not all about "status updates," although that's what it initially looks like. You really just have to use it before you can understand it.

I wasn't comparing it to how revolutionary it is. I was comparing them solely based on the fact that they're inventions to help people socialize. I understand you not wanting to use twitter. That's fine. But people like it. Not because it's a fad, but because it's nice. It's nice to be able to update your friends about exciting things you're doing without having to commit to a conversation with them. It's nice to get news stories, updates from bands, and media sources sent straight to your phone or organized on your twitter account.

You can preach this crap all you want, but we both know that you just don't like twitter because it's trendy right now. Stop being so uptight about everything, and let people have their fun.
