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

    Re: do you use twitter?

    I used to use an RSS feed, and would read relevant news articles, blog posts, etc. I tried out Twitter and realized it pretty much replaces the RSS feed, plus so much more. I second the use of Twitter for a restroom reader. Using twitter while watching a sporting event is great because it's like watching it in a room full of insult comics. And, if there's something that you don't know what happened (like an injury) you'll get the scoop in seconds.

    The best follows (for fellow CFers):
    ChrisMWilliams (of course)
    DanBeebe
    WideRtNattyLt
    SageRosenfels18

    JWcyclonestv
    IASTATEAD
    samsteeleponder
    ISUGoldenRule
    BobbyLaGesse

    Here's some advantages:
    -Don't like the service you get from some company (like a cable company)... tweet about it, mention their twitter feed, and they'll take care of your problem in no time.
    -Doesn't fill up with the equivalent of political postings, ads, etc. like Facebook does
    -Less stigma about "unfriending/unfollowing" someone that posts dumb stuff
    -It's like the ticker at the bottom of the screen for sports scores if you can't get to a TV
    -and more (I'll edit and add to this as I remember stuff)

    Re: do you use twitter?

    I want to throw out a plug for Tweetdeck. It is an app/website/Chrome app (now owned by Twitter) that you can use to read and post to Twitter (for multiple accounts if you want).

    I like it better than Twitter's regular website because the Twitter feed is live so new tweets automatically show up and you don't have to click "new tweets". The app is nice, and it can access FB too. It's the only social networking app I use.

    my 2 cents

    Re: do you use twitter?

    Hi, my name is Mark and I am a Twitter addict....

    When I started twitter, I was following all the celebs, and just random people. Now I barely follow any celebs, just media, friends, and people with decent content... I can't imagine a day without checking my twitter, I know it's sad...

    Oh, and follow me, @MarkHanrahan20



    Follow me on Twitter at twitter.com/MarkHanrahan20

    Check out my blog

    Can't think of anyone I would ever 'follow', not on the web anyway.
    Pretty much agree with this. The craving for instant information and being in immediate contact with anyone and everyone is a big part of the problem in today's society IMO.

    Re: do you use twitter?

    It's a great way to keep up on new technology developments, which is a requirement for my line of work. Being able to follow the leaders in my field and gain insight from some of the best thinkers is great, as well as finding new blogs/links to techno-related stuff. I don't really use it for personal interests as much.
