Twitter is just about the most pointless service I've ever had the misfortune to stumble upon. Does anyone REALLY care what you're doing every single moment of the day? Dang tweetards!

Hasn't this gone on long enough. The people at do not need any more free advertising. That is all we need now, another Facebook phenomenon. Unless twitter is traded publicly and is primed to lead stocks to record gains today and save us from certain poverty, let's just let this one go for now, huh?!?!

Yes I do. But I'm typically ahead of the curve on web 2.0 tools. I love it for quick updates on the go. It's much less intrusive than facebook and myspace. Most people I tweet with don't tweet stupid stuff like the minute by minute updates you all are talking about. Like everything else it has evolved into a much more useful tool than that. If you want to learn more, try it and follow LJW, TOTN, CNN, and other news organizations or businesses to see how it works in real life. You can also find other like minded (to you) people to follow. You can ask to follow me, yabooklady, but my tweets are mostly library, current events, social media or teen/teacher/parent related. I'm pretty picky about who I let follow me. I have a very low grumbling and whining tolerance level so I may or may not allow you to follow me. :)

Yes, I twitter as does my whole family. We send updates to each other. I follow President Obama. Someone is Victoria, Australia is following me. I think this is really cool. This is like texting to the world. I love it!

Multi says: "However, it does remind me a a great line from a movie about writing a book. Chapter one: “I got up. I got drunk. I passed out.” Chapter two: ” I got up. I got drunk. I passed out.”

Multi - Very funny! It almost sounds like something you'd read in a Charles Bukowski book or poem...

Okay, now I see the reason I am having problems with these postings. Maybe it is the word Twitter that set you off, the sound of it. Be that as it may, I am off to have a Singapore Sling. Be back when it takes effect.

"What is twitter?"

Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Updates are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends (delivery to everyone being the default). Users can send and receive updates via the Twitter website, SMS, RSS (receive only), or through applications such as Tweetie, Twitterrific, and Feedalizr. The service is free to use over the web, but using SMS may incur phone services provider fees.
