    What is Twitter

    So what is Twitter? Would someone inform me? I heard people talking about it and wondered what it is and if its fun.

    Re: What is Twitter

    It's basically a site for people who have a need to constantly update the rest of the world what they're doing every minute of the day. Kind of like Facebook status updates, but more detailed. See with Facebook you can update your status to let everyone know you're going to go take a dump, but with Twitter you can let everyone know in real time how the dump is going.

    Wait a sec, aren't you a teenager? I thought teenagers were supposed to know this kind of stuff, and clue the old people in...

    Re: What is Twitter

    Other than some interesting links that I get from time to time, it's pretty freaking boring. And to "update" the world, you have only so many characters, which means you can't say anything of substance in one post. For instance, about half of this post would fit.

    Hasn't college taught you not to use wikipedia as as source? It has absolutely zero accuracy and its all lies. Its not possible for it to have good info ever.

    Twitter is becoming a way of life in College Athletics as well...

    Coe Athletics (CoeAthletics) on Twitter


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Haha, that's great.

    ...but seriously, Twitter is just a micro-blogging service. I personally really enjoy it, plus my updates go to a block on my personal blog/website. I enjoy following my friends on it as well, as most things that people post there are not worth calling about.

    Much, much better than Facebook at this point, imho. Different experience, but if I had to choose it wouldn't even be close.

    twitter is for people who's lives aren't very interesting so they bask in the glory of other people to make themselves feel important.
