Any of you guys have one? I recently got into it and I have to say it's a lot of fun. Mine's @eddaket (how original)

Even if you don't have one or you do, what are your thoughts on it. Do you like the idea of it? The celebrities? Or do you think it's kind of creepy...

I don't have one myself, but I think it's an interesting medium. Also handy for celebrities, politicians etc, via Twitter they can communicate things to the world without having to go throught the traditional media.

I don't know how this is in other countries, but in Belgium Twitter has been become very important. For journalists, checking politians' Twitter pages has even become an important way of getting information first-hand.

In fact:

IPB Image
Right after the government fell, a politician posted 'alea iacte est' (the die is cast) on Twitter. This Twitter post was the first announcement of the fall of the gvt, way before any official information.

Also, the prime minister got a lot of criticism when he posted something about a bicycle race in the middle of an important political week.

If I was a politician, I'd totally flood my twitter account with memes or something. Just to piss everyone off.

Tbh I don't really understand these new means of socialisation, Facebook included.

I avoid social networking sites, but after a long time of peer pressure I finally got Facebook...

I've had Facebook for a month now and I still don't know what's the point of it... huh.gif

No more signing up on weird social networking sites like that for me so, no, I wont get Twitter. thumbdown.gif

I use Facebook simply because it's the only way of reaching certain people who don't get on MSN anymore.

I've actually stopped with Facebook recently. All I had been doing is creeping on people and I really have no interest in that anymore. My account still exists, but I haven't been on in over a week.

Wow, that sounds like you're in rehab or something.
Imagine a meeting of the Anonymous Former Facebook Users.
*several gloomy-looking people are sitting in a circle, some of them twitching nervously*
*the group psychologist starts the conversation*
- Everyone, say hello to eddaket.
- Hi!
- Hey.
- Hello.
- Hi...
- So, eddaket, what did you do this last week?
- Well... I'm... it's hard, but... I can say now that I'm more in control, and...
- Yes?
- Well... I haven't been on there in over a week.
- Ooh, that is quite an achievement! Well done, eddaket! Everyone, let's give him a round of applause.
*applause*






Sorry, I'm in random sh*t mode now. tongue.gif

Yes i'm on FB and twitter. I prefer FB, but twitter is useful for communicating with people you wouldn't normally be able to, such as celebrities. I also like how some good links get exchanged through it. You can find some pretty amazing.

But i love FB for keeping in touch with friends and family overseas. I used to hate it, then i thought was ok, now I think it's pretty damn good, although I can the downside of it. It really is FaceStalk at times.

Haha, totally. I have all the security options on max, and post as little as possible on places everyone can read, don't have any pics online either.

I really wouldn't like people to be able to google me and find out all kinds of stuff about me crazy.gif

Actually, the Americans seem to have a habit of calling everything school, even if they're in their frickin' PhD. It's a bit unnerving tongue.gif

But yeah, I'm just curious, what do Twitter users here use it for? Like, I don't get the concept. I understand being subscribed to some kind of news, but you have RSS feeds for that.
