I don't get the point of Twitter.
Way back when, I had an account and it used to send updates from certain websites to my mobile phone. That was handy; it told me about political protests in my area, or neat stuff on the telly. AFAIK though, none of that works anymore. Logging on to the comp to check status updates just seems way too effortful, and pointless.
Also, wading through posts from my friends about their toe-nail polish or their thoughts on the ref of whatever match their watching makes me want to pull the plug on the internet entirely.
