    Twitter is a scourge on all that is good and right in this world. I hope it burns :mad

    I signed up a few months ago but I really don't use it as much as I should, it's quite handy. :(

    I have a Twitter counterpart for my website. It's a good way to share news.

    Agree 1,000,000%. Oh wait, you were kidding? :mad 

    I don't give a rat's ass about what anybody is doing at any given second. If I need to know I'll just ask.

    There's a link to mine, amongst other things, in my sig.

    I wasn't a fan, but had to set one up for college (part of the music industry module). It gets used for the odd short rant, notification of longer rants on my blog, keeping track of college stuff and a quick place to post photos I take whilst out.

    I never really understood the purpose so I'm staying away from it. FB is enough.

    I use it to keep my fans up to date on projects and work progress. I get coerced into these things. I never wanted to myspace and then I got talked into facebook (both years after everyone else was on board) and then twitter was recommended to help people keep track of me and their commissions or what's in the pipeline. Also I like it on the observer side for OMG facts.

    It has it's purposes, but common folk who create accounts to share their thoughts on things, and update people on their boring lives, are dick heads.

    Eh, it's alright for random rants that I know nobody will read, but I've mostly used it to follow a few celebrities I like. It got boring fairly quickly though, and I haven't tweeted anything in months, or even read others' tweets. Only really funny and/or interesting peoople should be allowed to tweet, and as much as I'd like to think I belong in that category, I probably don't.

    IMO, there's no point to it.

    The way I see it is if people absolutely have to be involved with each other's personal shit at any given moment, then they might as well move in and live together, thereby sharing all moments; do it for real instead of internet stalking.
