Huh? Twitter?

Maybe someone else can explain to me the fascination with Twitter.  I really don't get it.  So you leave little updates about what you're doing at any exact moment and your friends and followers really care?  Or you follow some celebrity but isn't that almost like stalking?
And this is fun for people???

I had been asked to join Twitter awhile back so out of curiosity I decided to check it out.  I didn't get it then and I still don't get it now.  I went back on there today just to see if now that I was more alert or something I could perhaps figure out the fascination.  I noticed this time around you could add the celebrities or "important people" of the world.  I decided to follow a couple and see what happened.  And the answer is nothing.  Al Gore thanked Barack Obama for something, Lance Armstrong just finished a bike ride (really long one I might add and not the Tour de France) and someone else just didn't make any sense.  I guess I haven't been following long enough.  And the friend that had invited me to join in the first place hadn't done anything in ages so I think she found it as useless as I do. 

But alas, I believe I could be missing something.  The actual functionality or benefit of this service?  So please, if anyone has an idea, do tell.



  1. I'm with ya robin on the popularity or value of Twitter.

    I DID hear however, that if they roled a few of the more popular sites into one - YouTube, Twitter and Facebook - it might be called YouTwitFace. Good name huh? Good reflection on the trend too?

  2. Awesome, I love it. Although I must admit I am a bit of a Facebook junkie but at least there is a little more value in, by way of keeping in touch with friends and family that you don't see too often.


Send me some love...and I will send some back!
