    It goes hand-in-hand with the recent revelation that the younger generation has an over-sized sense of themselves. Hard for me to believe there are more than a handful of people with deep important, short and poorly spelled thoughts that just need to get out.

    But I have never been an early (or ever) adopter of any social media.

    Wow. The last few times I had tried to use Gizoogle it didn't work, so I gave up on the site. That is some great stuff now.

    Re: do you use twitter?

    Didn't vote because I couldn't click yes, but not really. Have an account, use it about once a month when I need to see something that's 'blowing up on twitter'.

    Used it quite a bit when I first had it, but just didn't have the time to wade thru the stuff I didn't GAS about.

    Re: do you use twitter?

    I guess I'm of an older generation that doesn't need everything now. I don't have a 'smart' (really?) phone, as I don't need constant info bombardment. I read the news morning and night. That's enough distraction from what I need to focus on.

    Can't think of anyone I would ever 'follow', not on the web anyway.

    Re: do you use twitter?

    I like Twitter all and all. Like a few people have mentioned, I never tweet, just read. I follow mostly sports writers and some comedians. I usually check it once or twice a day. If there is a game on I am watching I'll be on there more to see what everyone is saying.

    Re: do you use twitter?

    I don't tweet or read tweets. I'll stick with RSS! Twitter is for noobs.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Although I don't use Twitter, I have to agree with the last part of your comment - what's happened to this board and the senseless, inane snarkysmack; even the moderators join in. If Twitter offers a reprieve from this crap, I might have to consider; either that or maybe check out the subscription to Cyclone Report.

    Agreed. I can't even name the last time I had a Facebook 'status'

    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.
