Yer All a bunch of Tweets

Twitter thread!

So this is big, I'm told. Pretty big. And it caught on pretty damn fast! Now everybody tweets everything that they are doing at all times, or something.

Normal people use it to shoot the shit, companies use it to advertise, celebrities use it to stay in touch with fans, former celebrities use it to feel like they still matter in some small way, and strange people impersonate celebrities for no real reason.

So do you tweet? Who do ya follow? Do you think Twitter has any sort of cultural impact? Do you think it's all just kinda stupid? Or maybe that Twitter is the new Facebook and because your mom now has a Twitter account it is no longer cool?

Whatever! Talk about that!

    I twitter, but i have never posted.

    Roger Ebert never shuts the fuck up though, but he is also never dull on twitter. however you cannot beat the_real_shaq or OGOchoCinco or ShaunPhillips95 for pure egomania. Wil Wheaton, surprisingly boring. Also Neil Patrick Harris would like to remind you to watch Life on discovery HD.

    I don't really twitter.

    I mean it's not that I don't see the point of it.

    It's that I see it as something that functions the same as facebook, but I prefer the way facebook functions more.

    So I use that.

    Vivienne however did inform me that I was tweeted about yesterday and it made me feel like a movie star.

    Absolutely this one

    Other than that, it's cool for news update and following celebrities and stuff

    But just...normal people? Facebook updates seem to do the same trick.
