... twitter? wtf?

Why all the hoopla over Twitter? My twitter would be like...

11:43am 24/02/2009
....just farted

11:47am 24/02/2009
... farted again....slightly louder this time

11:52am 24/02/2009
...I'm bored

11:54am 24/02/2009
...you must be bored to be reading this crap

11:57am 24/02/2009
...a bird flew past the window

11:58am 24/02/2009
...it was brown

5:15pm 24/02/2009
...nearly time to go home

5:16pm 24/02/2009
...yay

5:29pm 24/02/2009
...time to go home

6:15pm 24/02/2009
...I'm home now

6:16pm 22/02/2009
....just farted


Riveting stuff.

Twitter's homepage states...

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

What I figure is that if was doing anything remotely interesting or important, I'd be kind of preoccupied with it, and giving live updates from a computer or mobile would be counter productive.

... in Pamplona, about to start the Running of the Bulls

3:19pm 12/05/2010
... any minute now

3:20pm 12/05/2010
... oops. I missed the start because I thought it more important to give a Twitter update.

3:26pm 12/05/2010
... got chased by a bull. It was the black one with the white spot on its nose.

3:27pm 12/05/2010
... wondering whether I should go and get chased by another one?

3:29pm 12/05/2010
... just farted


I fail to see the value of this latest phenomenon.

My train of thought has followed similar lines re Twittering.

What are you doing?

Writing on Twitter page that I'm writing on my Twitter page. ie. am typing this.


Mayhap we are a bit too literal minded??

Yep I can see this spreading out through the blog world and am hearing stuff about Stephen Fry's twitter and Jonathan Ross' twitter, like who gives a bollocks it seems like shite to me from this distance anyway, I've never actually investigated it like.

Status updates gone wild, with bad gas, too. Forget Twitter, the next big thing is Shitter.

I agree with youse all, especially Blakkat's suggestion.

Oh and the farting. Unfortunately.

It's got a strangely ironic name, don't it, that Twitter?

i think that twitter is a bit too much like self indulgent wank.

i prefer the self indulgent wankings of blogging.
