To Twitter or not to Twitter

Today I joined Twitter.....

To be honest, I really wasn't sure if I wanted to or should join another online socialising thingy. I already have a blog, e-mail, facebook and myspace........BUT Everyone has been talking about Twitter sooo much lately that I thought I would give it a try and see what all the fuss is about (yup, I succumbed to internet pressure).

I am still trying to figure out a few things about Twitter - how does it work? whats the point? Do I like it? Is it a waste of time? Do people just use it because they are bored or nosey?...etc etc... Will let you know how I feel about it after I have been on it a bit longer.

What do you think of Twitter?

  3. It's basically Micro Blogging and it allows you to connect with your readers in a short format 'status bar' kind of way:)

  5. I have never done twitter but I must say the peer pressure is getting to me. I may have to jump on board just so I can be cool like everyone else. LOL

  6. I have too much going on now to try something new online. My thoughts are to consentrate on doing a few things well as opposed to doing everything part way.

  8. I couldn't really be bothered with Social Networking, I've been on FB and Myspace for years and nothing is better at getting to know a person than a blog, seriously - twitter and the like are for people who think about sharing, then get bored even before they have finiahed 'posting' on twitter - they gotta be really boring to be bored enough not blog.

    I'm just typing here... I guess everyone gets bored at some stage..

  9. I like Facebook better as you can get all sorts of social networking going, do twitter-like updates and store photos etc...

  12. I hated Twitter for the first few months I had it because everyone was so excited about it and I just didn't get it.

    Now I'm obsessed.

    I like to think of it as a big open chatroom that's constantly running.

  14. Twitter rocks - takes a while to get into, but it's super addictive.

    I often don't have time to do a proper post, but doing a tweet takes a few seconds.

    It's also WAY more interactive than FB, and you get to meet and chat to a much wider group of people.

    Give it a while and you'll be hooked. ;-)

  15. twitter is great tool for bloggers. though you were forced by pressures around you but it really worth the test. you wanna know, everyone is moving to twitter.

    it is a fast way to share your thoughts without delay among friends, family and associates.

  16. At first I enjoyed Twitter, but find that I lack interest since coming back from the holiday's. There's not really alot to do(unlike facebook) and I find that the celebrities I so enthusiastically followed at first, talk alot of crap.
