Pretty much summed up my sentiments towards this 'service'.

When I find myself going "What? Why would anyone do that?" - I realise I am becoming disconnecting from the 'cool' online. Dangerous when this is my industry/source of income. So I try everything new that I can find - even if I think it's a complete waste of time :)

However I must add this is single handedly both the best application of this information I have seen, and a fantastic example of why I don't want to be a part of it.

Oh God...can't--stop--watching--

--Whoa! People in Somalia have computers? And they use Twitter? What's this world coming to?

I understand the allure of this service, but I don't understand the ferocious buzz and popularity of it. I heard one of the creators of Twitter say that the idea was to get people outside and away from their computers while staying connected, but aren't they just taking their computers with them? Sorry, but if you are using your cell phone to update and read other twitter blogs, it's still your computer.

i don't get it. i think i blame blogs for this. why do people need to publish every detail of their lives and every fleeting thought on the internet? am i getting old?

amusing, ridiculous, cheese-filled siliness

Back in my day we used to just write what we were thinking on a scrap of bubble gum wrapper and hold it up to the sky and wait.

twittering is euphemism for playing with ones own genitalia, right?

There is no god.

We are all the same. Bored at work and mad at our computers.

That pretty much sums it up. Not a twitter fan.

Okay... That made me feel very numb inside.

I think I need more coffee power than Starbucks offers to reboot my brain.

I enjoyed that for the 10 minutes that there were new twitters. Kinda cool to have a thought from someone halfway 'round the world...

man. i'm just glad that there's finally a visual tool to prove that americans aren't the only ones out there with an inflated sense of self-importance (apparently the scars of adolescence have bred just as much insecurity in adults across the pond...yikes)...
proposed mashup tagline: 'twittervision. because you're special."

Twitter is surprisingly addictive, and if you've got a group of people all watching the same Twitters (as I do), it gets interesting to follow along with. The accessibility from pretty much anywhere also makes it neat.

Finally a good excuse to ignore the person standing next to me.

i prefer the ORG. you know, with the thinking and the creating and whatnot.

(i'm not sucking up, i swear.)

Posted by: fuzzysponch at March 28, 2007 6:44 PM

if you get your friends together on twitter & watch that it could be fun.

Posted by: Jeff at March 28, 2007 6:59 PM

Ya, the ORG is better; collaborative, creative, interesting, etc. :)

I find it hypnotic. 'Course then I forget to blink and end up with scratchy eyes and blurred vision for the rest of the evening.

Posted by: sford at March 28, 2007 10:16 PM

There's room in my heart for both the ORG and Twitter.
