    Does anyone understand it? I have to admit, I don't get what the appeal to Twitter is. I don't even know how to use it. I feel as old as the guys who bitch on the forums about how young gay guys don't know how good they have it.

    Do you tweet? What do you tweet about?

    twitter doesnt appeal to anyone I know, although some people use it to follow updates from business and celebrities.

    For example, the iPhone 4 is sold out everywhere in Canada but there's a twit where people write if the've found any store where its available, if you sign up for this twit(follow this twit) you will get all of these messages(updates) on your phone's twitter app or by simply logging in through twitter's website.

    hmmmm, my take on this is:

    facebook is for family members you don't know and fags you met at the club
    myspace is for recording artists and Latinos who don't speak English
    twitter is an advertisers wet-dream come true, but no one with a brain uses it...therefore, it's still an advertisers wet-dream come true

    dumb generalizations about the demographics of X service aside, twitter can be pretty great for knowledge-building among like minds, passing news around and bouncing ideas off of each other (regardless of whether or not you know them in real life). if you personally don't have a use for it... you don't have to use it.

    Pending the type of business/profession you are in - it def works to your advantage! It's the new Social Media chaos...

    As for twitter - I had an account last year but started truly using it earlier this summer. I'm so addicted and it helps update all my other sites I'm apart of. Twitter most def has its own language, but once you get the hang of it...you can say, "I've twatted!" ROFL - no joke. icon_redface.gif (my twitter link in on my profile.)

    I use Twitter to follow a small number of people who post links that are likely to be of interest to me. Beyond that, I have no use for Twitter.

    I havent looked at it for a couple of months, but what Is much more interesting to me is exactly how good young gay guys have it. Could you expound on that for a few paragraphs, and include photos? icon_twisted.gif

    No, I'm not going to follow you on Twitter. I don't care if you're making yourself a cup of tea, going out for a run or taking a shower. I don't care what the waitress said to you when you went out to eat last night. I don't care about the driver who cut you off. Your life is not that interesting!

    It's simple, twitter is a place to let people be a lil nosey into your daily life or promote a product or business. There's all sorts of stuff pending what you like to follow: For example, I love fitness (hence RJ) - so a lot of fitness enthusiasts follow me & vice versa. <--its the motivation posts or interesting twats (tweets) regarding fitness or new supps.

    I've met some really amazing people on Twitter. It's basically what you want to use it for. I'm a writer, and I know a lot of writer folks over there. I also reconnected with someone from my past on Twitter.

    I also use it to advertise events I'm participating in or holding. I even use it advertise my ebay items. Like I said before, Twitter is what you make of it. It's a SOCIAL NETWORKING site.

    @snowppl

    Strangely enough people like to hear about what other people do. Not everything obviously, but it's like getting to know someone in real time.

    Twitter is pretty cool once you make use of the site.
    I'll admit at first I wasn't understanding the point either but after I had a few friends join I came to love it.

    *Know your friends doing without asking
    *Use cool Apps like foursquare
    *Share pic tweets by phone
    *Keep up with big news with trending topics
    *Meet some cool people in different areas of the world
    *Maybe keep up with your fav celebs
    *Ect

    If you have no friends on twitter you will not enjoy it...

    I don't get Twitter at all. I work in advertising/publishing and most of my colleagues, friends and clients are on it. Usually it's just peddling pointless banalities or desperate attempts to sell something or get crowds to dull parties. Even looking at celebrity accounts, there are only few original and worthwhile tweets. But hey, if you want to be hip, you gotta be part of it:
