Piece Of Twit

I have to agree with my friend JVO about Twitter. I killed my account because I was wildly irresponsible with it and I was only on it because everyone I knew seemed to be. Beh. My foibles aside, he makes the larger point that Twitter posts are mostly the things we would have kept to ourselves, in the age before social media sites. Updating people on the banal minutiae of our lives may be addictive, but having an outlet for it doesn't make it any more compelling.

So, for any of you breathlessly awaiting my next, "eating Ruffles with french onion dip and watching Top Chef with Gwen" post, I apologize. I'll still apprise you of my bedtime on Facebook.

I never got twitter for that reason. My day is just not that exciting enough to update the world minute to minute.

As you say, just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Facebook is bad enough.

How does one get, "wildly irresponsible" with Twitter? It's only a status update. The majority of "Tweets," that I have read are dumb, pointless, and lack any sort of importance.
