  • What The Fuck Is Twitter?||

    And isn't the root word here "Twit"?

    I mean really, I started hearing every two-bit TV pundant talking about Twitter about three weeks ago. What's the big deal?

  • Warty||

    Yo, fuck Twitter.

  • ||

    Can't fight the tide, folks.

  • ||

    Twitter is for when you want everyone you know to know what you're doing all fucking day and night because you compulsively report it.

    It's annoying enough when people do it on Facebook, but Twitter is like an OCD exhibitionist hell with spelling errors.

  • Twitter||

    Gay.

  • What The Fuck Is Twitter? ||

    "Can't fight the tide, folks."

    Bullshit. Twitter isn't the tide. A soon to be stagnant lagoon maybe, but tide? No way. And I say this as someone who's been intertubing for nearly twenty years.

  • What The Fuck Is Twitter? ||

    "It's annoying enough when people do it on Facebook, but Twitter is like an OCD exhibitionist hell with spelling errors."

    My take exactly.

    Pagers were all the rage once...

    In defense of Twitter, it does make bar hopping easier.

  • What The Fuck Is Twitter? ||

    "In defense of Twitter, it does make bar hopping easier."

    So did pagers.

    Shut the fuck up, Warty.

    Bullshit. Twitter isn't the tide. A soon to be stagnant lagoon maybe, but tide? No way. And I say this as someone who's been intertubing for nearly twenty years.

    Spoken like a dude who spends a lot of time fighting the tide.


    Twitter is actually really interesting, and I think everyone (me included) hates it when they hear about it, and just instinctually. Once you play with it for a week or so, though, you realize it's not so much about telling people what you're doing as it is about sharing information.

    News stories have been breaking from Twitter (plain crash in Holland or wherever the hell it was, plus, the past couple of hours, Helen Thomas made a Slumdog Millionaire crack about Bobby Jindal. Fun!!!), then there are links, customer service things (with the companies that use Twitter: publishers giving away books, Whole Foods answering consumer questions), and all sorts of things.

    But I get it. People are afraid of change.

    *shrug

    "But I get it. People are afraid of change."

  • ed||

    Can't fight the tide, folks.

    I can and I will.

  • ||

    Solana, Twitter has its uses, but depending on who you end up connected to, it can be severely annoying.

    MySpace was huge for a while, but the proliferation of idiots made it unbearable. Facebook came to the fore, but the inability to "politely" refuse Friend Requests causes you to eventually be mired in the same pointless information overload.

    My prediction is that new sites will come to the fore that allow more fine-tuning of whose and what info you receive.

  • Warty||

    not in avoiding people you hate.

    e.g., people who use Twitter.

  • Mister DNA||

  • ed||

    The next logical step has to be anally implanted video-phones.

  • Boston||

    e.g., people who use Twitter.

    Reason magazine uses Twitter. Surely you don't hate Reason magazine? Reason magazine gets emotional about this sort of things.

  • ||

    But one thing they are not going to do is go away.

    Absolutely not. But filtering needs to improve.

  • kilroy||

    In 5 years Twitter will be a distant memory of wasted time, just like college.

  • skeptic||

    With Twitter, you can stay hyper-connected to your friends and always know what they're doing.
    -Why do I have to always know what my friends are doing?

    Or, you can stop following them any time.
    -What self-respecting stalker would do that?

    You can even set quiet times on Twitter so you're not interrupted.
    -Like when I'm sleeping, having sex, or shitting? Or are all those "twitterable" circumstances?

  • Jerry||

    Getting millions in seed money without a business model is actually quite cool.

  • Ganja Blue||

    Hey Killroy, just because you didn't remember it didn't mean you didn't have fun.

    College was the best 7 years of my life. If I could have tweeted from class I might have actually gone.

    College was the best 7 years of my life.

    "Lane, I've been going to this high school for seven and a half years. I'm no dummy."

  • BDB||

    I tried setting up a Facebook account once, and it was cool for about a day. Then a bunch of people I didn't really like, some I positively despise, and some I didn't even remember from back in College, High School,(and Middle(!)) started sending me friend requests. I just called it off right there.

  • ||

    Twitter is great if the people you're following are 1)incredibly witty at all hours of the day or night 2) are continually inviting their followers over for free booze/weed/lines or 3) are telling you things that can easily be translated into cash. Instead, Twitter reveals that most people, especially political people, lead deadly dull lives, get excited by the most mundane things, aren't as witty as their blogs lead you to believe and never, ever hook up.

    No, some of us don't give 2 shits about compulsively sharing, no matter who you are. Work with me here, but some of us really have no burning desire to broadcast the minutiae of our lives. I've got another secret: we care even less about yours.

    If I want to share with friends, I've got several different phones I can call them on and, you know, talk. I've probably got their email addresses too.

    God, this is so freaking stupid. Am I the only one who think all tweets should be in Haiku form? Lends itself to that, imo.

  • ||

    Oh you guys bring a happy tear to my eye. Here I was sitting thinking that I'm becoming an old technophobic foggie. I see twitter this and twitter that all around, and I just think, who the assfuck cares, why is this exiting, why is this groundbreaking. But now I can see I'm not alone and I feel better. FYI; I have been having some gastrointestinal distress this morning as well.

  • Mister Tax Slave||

    What I want to know is who OWNS Twitter? It seemed as if there was a coordinated mass promotion via TV especially on MSNBC. Does NBC have a piece of this?

  • ||

    coordinated mass promotion

    That's what I've been thinking. I don't see why Twitter is such a useful or groundbreaking thing, and the fat that fat white-haired men on cable news channels promote it makes me very suspicious.

  • Mister Tax Slave||

    "and the fat that fat white-haired men on cable news channels promote it makes me very suspicious"

    Exactly, Tony. I mean, when did Joe Scarborogh (sp?) and Chris Matthews crawl up to the alleged cutting edge of technology?

  • ||

    Twitter is like an RSS feed that isn't organized well and doesn't have any actual content. The CEO was on CSPAN not to long ago openly admitting he has no idea how to make money with Twitter. If it weren't for devout twitter evangelists no one would know about it because no one really needs it.

  • Tacos mmm...||

    MySpace was huge for a while, but the proliferation of idiots made it unbearable. Facebook came to the fore, but the inability to "politely" refuse Friend Requests causes you to eventually be mired in the same pointless information overload.

    And email. Does anyone email anymore? I haven't gotten a mass forward of inspirational jesus quotes set to midi music and surrounded by dozens of animated butterfly .gifs in ages.

  • ||

    Email has proven it's utility. I have yet to see any real use, unique or otherwise, of twitter. People use it to imitate the status messages of Facebook or the away messages of IM clients. Often times people update twitter with an app that posts the same status to twitter and IM client. Other people use twitter as if it were an RSS feed, a job it does poorly.

    It was an early personal computer as video-terminal for me, but one time I DID transmit from home the images of a deck of hollerith cards for remote punching on-campus, back when I was in college. In those days, being able to generate the deck image on my personal computer, and not having to spend late-night hours in the key-punch room, several miles away, was quite the perk, I can tell you.

    Stockholm's gay pride group launched a "How hetero are you?" Twitter analyzer as one of many ways to entice you to stop by for pride, which kicks off July 27.

    It goes like this: Enter your Twitter username, and it'll decide what percentage straight your 140 character messages are based on your record of mentioning things like "gay" or "Prop 8."


    @reasonmag
    73% Hetero
    "You're boomerang hetero. It doesn't matter how hard you try to gain new experiences, magically you always return to your starting point."

    "You're winnebago hetero. Get the kids, pack the grill and, for the love of God, don't forget the SpongeBob dvd."

    @mcmoynihan
    65% Hetero
    "You seem to be a bit semi-hetero. Just like a chocolate chip ice cream you don't really know what you want to be. Basically it's a vanilla ice cream but what's the deal with the chocolate thingies? Luckily, most people like chocolate."

    Reading the damn "Gatesgate" thread and asleep at the switch.

  • kilroy||

    In the unlikely chance someone at Reason will read this, I'll post it again.

    Might I suggest you add this information to the contributors information pages instead of continually running this up the flagpole?

    Or is your illogic that it makes more sense to ensure it's always on the Hit & Run front page ... forever?

    I think any reasonable person who wanted to find your Twitter ID would likely go to the profile section before combing through the blog entries, don't you?

  • ||

    I vote for Kilroy's idea.

    I am not sure why people are hating on twitter.
    Yes, it seems trendy...but as far as trends go it appears harmless. It doesn't cost anything, takes little investment in terms of time, and it is relatively easy to ignore if you dislike.

    I am not a huge twitter fan, but I am not sure if it is here to stay.

    No thank you.

  • 24AheadDotCom||

    If everyone followed me on twitter, not only would I tell them many political things Reason never will, but they'd know about things like this. Quite SusanBoyle-ish for her age.

    Also, I'm starting a new service with heavy metal videos on twitter. There's nothing there at post time, but starting in a few hours I'll be posting different vids four times per day, every day.

    Stop wasting time tweeting. Where are the Hit and Run posts on that Free Stater packing heat in New Hampshire for Obama's visit, and mocking Pelosi for being shocked that voters are upset when Congress tries to buy themselves a few more posh private jets?

    Well, I just thought I would bring you all up to speed on ME:

    Next week is the 12th anniversary of my simultaneous divorce from the "hag", conversion to Buddhism, my absolute leap from the closet and into Fabulousness, smoking cessation through hypnosis, membership in PETA, renouncement of eating anything with a face (well, except for Timmy....teehee!), and uber-committment to environmentalism. What a week, eh? LOL

    Every year, I still get goose bumps recalling how absolutely empowered I felt by my metamorphisis. And I can't wait for this year's anniversay. Timmy and I will be hosting a reception at the Blue Lagoon on Saturday, I do so hope that our friends and family can drop by.

    I am still tormented by that painful anal leakage problem. We can't decide if it is due to irritation of my anal fissures by Timmy's genital wart, or my my non-stop craving for bean and cheese burritos with green chile salsa.

    Irregardless, it is certainly an inconvenience when I am on line at the health-care reform vigils that are currently my only form of income (thank you SEIU!!)

    I didn't realize just how obvious it was until all the "teabaggers" kept calling me Shitstain.

    Well, that's all for now. Give me a "tweet" sometime.
