Don't twitter, don't really know what it is all about. That video is funny as all hell, tho.

I first heard about twitter a few weeks ago -- read that some courts are allowing reporters to twitter during hearings. I presume it is a one-way texting service?

Interesting, twitters are portrayed as loosers.
Interesting, to twitter is the act of a looser.
Interesting, someone created a medium for looser to voice themselves.
The really interesting part is, the person that created twitter will probably end up being the furthest thing from a looser financially.

This is very sad. But so true. Same wuth Facebook, Youtube, MySpace and all that crap. In fact - look how we are socializing. What a seachange this information age has brought. But Look - maybe to see this Twitter thingie you will need one of these (caution - strong language) I hear Garett has one already.

And - actually, it was just on the news that the average American spends 8 +1/2 hrs. per day in front of some sort of electronic screen or other. I htink this explains a lot.

This week was the first time I have ever heard of Twitter. Can someone please tell me what the hell it is. It sounds stupid whatever it is. The local news keeps talking about it.

Thanks for that vid. I heard them talking about twittering other morning on Fox news (yea I am one of those) and did not know what they were talking about. Now I am glad I didn't.
Oh and that comment about THT being real time twittering is NOT COOL

Search YouTube for "twitter whore" and if that doesn't totally annoy the crap out of you, nothing will! It is very sad that this shizut has taken off. Some people have way too much friggin time on their hands.

Probably more than you wanted to know, but I was curious too.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter

Seems to be like texting on a cell phone,but the more powerful blackberry thingy to link to any number of others. It's all the rage in Washington, with many of the Reps reporting stuff to whoever wants to know. Guess they don't have enough to do? ;?

I checked it out the other day to see what all the buzz was about. First three twits I saw on there were Lance Armstrong, Brooke Burke and Dr Drew. The layout gave me a friggin headache so I never twittered.;?

Every time I think I've seen the dumest #&*Damn thing I could possibly imagine, I get trumped by something else.
My girlfriend watches Reality TV.... I use to think that was the most mind numbing crap imaginable, Makes me want to jab ice picks in my ears.
.... now we have twittering.

Lord knows what will be next

I think by the time I'm 50, I'm going to have to move to some 3rd world hell hole that thinks cell phones are cutting edge technology.
