What the f*ck is Twitter?

Friday, February 13, 2009


Everybody seems to have a Twitter now. I'm really not sure why, but that bug never bit me. Not for nothing, but I don't even know what the movement is all about. That's kinda odd cus I'm usually down with all the useful sh*t on the internet: albumhunt.com, YouTube, Facebook, ChuckNorrisFacts.com, a few quality blogs and RSS feeds, podcasts, Xtube, Nubian, and porn message boards.

I think that covers everything Al Gore invented the internet for.

Being the curious Afristocrat I am, I headed to Twitter.com to check this sh*t out. This is the bullsh*t explanation they give under "What is Twitter?":
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?
That was so unhelpful. I don't even know what the hell that means. Is it like Facebook? I literally have no better understanding now than I did 10 mins ago. This is frustrating.

The way I see it is...I sign up for this website to burden myself by volunteering to constantly let folks -- peeps I've never met -- know my every move. To the folks who use this service: Is this how it works?

Can somebody please explain to me why I should involve myself with this?

LOL its crazy how its blown up. was on it then left.

the concept of it im guessing was to be like a minimalist blog. Kind of like a status message on facebook. randoms, few lines etc.

having random conversation, statements etc, twits. (shrugs) that's my thought, now it has expanded

Think instant messaging on steroids.

Haha!! Glad someone else feels the same as I do.

Twitter just seems to be another excuse to talk a lot, without saying anything...

It's no fun if you don't say anything.
