    I'm on there a lot more than here anymore. Get news faster, don't have to sift through as much worthless sarcasm from part time comedians.

    Re: do you use twitter?

    I don't use it. I don't really care what's on other people's mind or what's trending. I don't need to know everything the instant that it happens. I also think you can't possibly get real news in 154 characters or less. (I understand that if someone tweets a link that it could be useful)

    That being said, I also used to be opposed to texting. Couldn't see why people would waste 20 minutes typing a comversation that they could have had in two minutes by calling. I have since found it to be useful to get messages to family and friends without interupting their day so I may eventually find a use for Twitter, too.

    Also, I bet the breakdown in ages for the "yes' and "no" voters would be interesting.

    Twitter can easily be 700 times worse with the inane crap, depending on who you follow.

    Re: do you use twitter?

    Think of it this way. Do you read the newspaper? Do you read news on yahoo or something? Even this website.

    Now, when you read those sites there is a ton of bull**** that you don't care about. Celebrity marriage stuff, weather in locations you don't care about, sports news you aren't interested in.

    If you are on twitter, you can follow people who exclusively post (tweet) about things that interest you. You follow Chris Williams, Ben Bruns, John Walters, ect for cyclone stuff and you get real time information constantly. Anthony Lazard committs? You get that info 10 minutes after it happens and you can go to CF to talk about it. That info wouldn't be available until the next day in newspapers and it takes a while to write an article about it.

    There is also a lot of fun stuff and funny accounts out there that are really entertaining, and the best part is that if you don't think they are funny, you don't follow them and you don't have to deal with it. It is catered specifically to your needs and wants when it comes to news and entertainment.

    It isn't just "Took the biggest dump this morning, you guys" "Just ate a banana everyone" that people think it is on the surface.

    Re: do you use twitter?

    What ripvdub said. It is incredible for getting news. Its a great way to get only the news you want and twitter tends to be faster with news than any other website. Plus you can see some pretty funny stuff on there. I never thought I would get into it like I have but I love it now.
