Never used twitter and probably never will - I just don't see any use for it.
Me neither. I have better things to do than listen to some famous person prattle on about how they just went grovery shopping or took a dump.
So do I. Which is why the celebrities I follow are interesting people like Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage.
I get to go see both of them at wootstock in Minneapolis in a week. I'm a tad bit excited.

Re: Twitter

I like it as a news source, but man it's gotten really bad. There are some people who I follow who come across as full of themselves, and I really hate the whole retweeting thing. I thought the idea of following was to follow that person and not follow people who you don't know or don't want to. Well, appearently, it's follow this person, and then have to deal with retweets from 50 other people.

I don't know why I'm still on it, but if anyone wants to "follow" me, I've got the T logo somewhere.

Twitter the social networking site I use, normally, for my random thoughts. A very few people follow me there, but, if you decided you wanted to follow me, you'd probably just go a lot.

I do that to most people I follow anyway so it's nothing new.

Re: Twitter

I thought Twitter was perfectly stupid for quite a while, and I joined it only to follow the situation in Iran. But I've really gotten to like it: I like its minimalist quality, I like that it's all text. I only read a few people, but one of them I would consider a kind of Twitter virtuoso.

i do retweet some but mostly it is information type stuff.
trying to get info out to wider group.
and i retweet some sports stuff because i know some people who follow me dont follow the same writers and information sources i do.
i dont retweet everything jus most interesting looking stuff.

i am putting my twitter in my profile.
it isnt hard to guess.
