    I have a twitter account to follow news and sports. but I haven't tweeted in probably 3 years. After the first month the novelty wore off.

    I have a Twitter account. I have tried several times to tweet regularly and it just doesn't happen. Too many social networking sites anymore. I have Facebook which is pretty much regular for me. Then I have Twitter which I'm rarely on, then I have Google+ which I don't use, then I'm on Foursquare which I don't use, then I'm on LinkedIn which is another waste of time, and now I signed up for Instagram which is such fucking redundant garbage I don't see the point.

    Unfortunately, twitter has become pretty much essential for my job.

    I have a twitter account...I use it to contact others...It's great for getting info to people it would have once been nearly impossible to contact...Battlefield 3 uses twitter to report game issues/servers down. Torrent sites use twitter to report tracker issues. It's great for finding out if it's just you that's having an issue or everyone. I love the feed Massholesports...I joined in Jan of 2009, have 1,000 tweets...and never do I think that for one second people truly give a shit about what i have to say :)

    Luckily, I don't tweet myself. But all the police and fire agencies, along with a large part of the media, get their information out through twitter now. Instead of having to wait to hear things on a scanner or do a beat call to the state patrol, I learn about collisions just minutes after they happen.

    It's perfectly easy to stay away from celebrity and teeny bopper horseshit. If you're a sports fan, twitter has become a great outlet for quick and inside news from beat writers and bloggers. I like ze twitter.

    It's kind of a cross between Twitter and Facebook.

    I like twitter for what I use it for. Following O&A, and comedians. Twitter is worthless as a social networking site.

    Does twittering with 11 followers count?

    There are a few "fake" accts that are obvious o&a fans, if not wackbaggers. Not sure if they want their name tied into those accts, but too many show ref's to not be someone here.

    Fake accounts? Of who? O&A?

    And people who don't post on Wackbag also remember show references.

    Twitter is for fags, niggers, and 15 year old girls. I don't know anyone in real life that uses it or even knows WHAT to use it for.

    I use it mainly for news and to follow a few baggers...Facebook is more for family/friends and a few baggers have actually made their way to my friend list (and I've learned the translate function in Facebook thanks to Neon posting in the weird Hebrew language ;) ...Twitter is more for me to rip on politics and dirtier stuff.
