OK, I'm going to try Twitter. You can follow me if you want. I'm not interesting yet. Also not sure if I'll keep up with it..but hey, it's worth a shot.
It's twitter, there's no pressure. Just update what you want, when you feel like it. Or don't!

I love twitter. It's like my favorite thing about facebook (the status updates) without all the annoying invites to join in games about mobs or zombies or scrabble.

What's that sound?

I think I hear a Brit mumbling poetry somewhere in the shadows behind me!

Ha! You caved! Hahahah! Everyone caves eventually. These past few months, all my friends who resisted Facebook for so long have finally joined. Everyone caves eventually.

I did cave. The key for me was learning that you can do it via the web. I just really didn't want to have to use my cellphone for it. I barely carry my cellphone, let alone use it. But via web? Absolutely.

I don't know what Twitter is, but I'm gonna do my best to pretend.

I'm not sure what Twitter is either. I hear a lot about it, but I don't know how it works or what it's for.

Yay, reading helps!

Twitter is a free service that lets you keep in touch with people using the web, your phone, or IM.

I canceled my Facebook. I'm afraid I'm not good about updating anything. I would suck at Twitter.

And I'm another follower.

it's worth squat.

I'm following.

I do this sporadically....Coldchef has the best twitters but he has to approve you.

+1 leader. In that I'm not joining Twitter. Making me not a follower.

Though possibly a getter-out-of-the-way.
posted by Eideteker 22 August | 11:49
Makes me feel like a stalker. I'm following you, Miko.
posted by theora55 22 August | 11:50
I agree, bunnyfire. ColdChef is the one of the only reasons I check Twitter these days. Even if he doesn't have anything amusing to say, which is rare, it's always a boost to realize that he's out there dealing with dead bodies while I'm not.

My impression was that somehow it was a bigger deal or more life-changing than anything else I do on the internet. Turns out it's actually more of the same. No big woop. A mildly novel form of distraction. I retire teh Hate.

Oh thank God, I thought I was the only person in the known universe who didn't know/care what Twitter is.

Completely awesome; I found someone who's following about 75 museums who are experimenting with Twitter. Excellent.

I used to be a complete Twitter skeptic, but I admit I am completely addicted now.

Okay, I drank the koolaid. I'd been thinking about this for a while and now I'm on. Huh.

jaysus - first Facebook, now Twitter?
*slumps off to find cozy old man cardigan and the part of the newspaper that damn kid missed my house with AGAIN, I mean how hard is it to hit the damn porch every week? I could hit the house across the damn street when I ran my route, and I walked!

Kids today with their stupid cars and weird bikes and stuff hanging out their ears couldn't even hear me I bet - no respect, all wired up and no respect, ah, what's it all coming to with this Twitbook and Facer, no one respects anything anymore....*

I'm there as shh, though I haven't updated in a month. I update very infrequently.

I use it more as a kind of tiny journal -- I like to work within the restraint of 140 characters to convey what I'm feeling. I find it interesting but probably most wouldn't.

I got a Twittier idea - is available.

Only problem is how long would it take for to catch on.
posted by Hellbient 22 August | 15:04


Hellbient: That's kind of a great idea. If six-word stories can take off...
