I have one.. I just don’t remember the login information. I used it for about two days six months ago. I didn’t really see the point.

I’ve seen the site, but not the point of it. If people don’t know where I am or what I’m doing, there’s probably a good reason for it….

I have one, and I really like the concept of twitter, but I haven’t been able to get my friends to join so don’t see the point of just twittering in the ether.

I use it mostly as an easy way to make a linked list for my personal website (it parses my Twitter RSS feed). What’s your Twitter username, Will?

willbrawn's avatar

my twitter name is willbrawn if anyone wants to friend me.

No. Likewise, no MySpace, no Facebook.

I enjoy how Twitter is seen as a useless devil’s child.

@pupntaco why even reply and tell us that?

Zaku's avatar

No I don’t. I don’t know what it is, and still don’t after following the two links, the second of which didn’t work as it was down at the moment.

Like pupntaco (I assume), I’m writing this because you asked.

there’s a twitter video explanation on commoncraft. You might have to search for it.

Just watched that commoncraft video – now I understand why people use it! Yay! Even thinking about starting to do it. Looks interesting.

@willbrawn – because you asked? You don’t only want “yes” answers, do you? :)

I have one, and most of my friends have one too. It seems to be one of the very few networking goodies that we adopted before “the kids.” My wife works with a bunch of people in their early twenties and they haven’t heard of it. I like it because it’s an easy and fun way to check in with my friends. Most of us have our tweets to update on our Facebook pages.

I don’t have one, why not just use facebook?

Rosyblue's avatar

I have one and love it. It’s easy and short to the point!

aloha's avatar

yes – and like fluther, it’s addictive!
(i’m AlohaRP on twitter for any one who cares to follow)

it is a great tool, you can use it for a variety of different purposes too. For example i use it to text my girlfriend who is across the world, so we both pay local rates rather than international ones, and it is private too. Secondly I have another account that i use to publish up to the minute results for sports events that i run.

Twitter is the best! I mostly use it for entertainment purposes, so I follow people who are good at the quippy one-liners. I like getting instant updates from my friends and family around the world, too. Great tool. :)
