Tumblr VS Twitter?

Asked by James_Mal (441points) February 12th, 2010

What do you guys ( and gals ) prefer to use? I suppose I’ve been an avid user of both, but have found Tumblr to just be a little more appealing, although there aren’t as many third part applications for it for use on my desktop! To reiterate, what is your preferred service?

Both keep me very entertained. Both keep me connected to people I care about.

Tumblr. I hate Twitter.

But both services are different. I don’t see the need to compare them.

This is an odd comparison. Tumblr is a blogging service, Twitter is a gossip and news sharing service. How do you compare and rate two different site with to completely different purposes? Oh well, here it goes.

I like Tumblr a bit more. It links to better and more varied content (i.e. blogs). I find Twitter repetitive, and all of the “tweets” overwhelming on high traffic days.

They’re not really comparable. Two completely different things.

James_Mal's avatar

They are comparable in the sense that you can just share updates and the likes with friends and family. Twitter just has a 140 character count, and is therefore a ‘micro’-blogging site. Tumblr is my preferred of the two, because it has integration with my Twitter AND FaceBook. I can update all of my important sites from Tumblr, but was just curious to hear your takes!

Neither. I have found no reason to use either one. I can do all of the things done on those two sites by using my email and browser.

Actually neither. I never understood the big stink about Twitter ?? Why do people need to keep posting what they are doing every few minutes ! People with interesting lives do not have the time to get posting every few hours.

TWITTER is just for posting stuff, you’re currently doing and you’re going to do..

TUMBLR is for blogging not posting updates.

and PLURK is way better than twitter

I’d rather take a nap than use either. It would be a better use of my time.
