Do you Twitter?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by afzoomie67, Jul 19, 2012.


  1. As technology advances, Facebook becomes the new Myspace and goes by the way-side. Twitter is in now..

    So do you, TB, Twitter? If yes, post your username and we can all follow each other ?
     
  2. I have a Twitter but I only follow sortakindabutnotreally famous musicians.
     
  3. I do twitter. My username is the same everywhere. Rip Topaz.

    I use it as a way of letting people know when I've posted something new on one of my sites. Whether that really means anything, works well, or benefits anyone is quite open to debate. :) But it's free, and I get a new "follower" or two every week.

    I also use it as a news headline reader service. I get the headlines from the sources that would interest me most, international media outlets and writers, as well as news they retweet from their more obscure and independent sources. This way I hear what's going on in Syria (for example) from the people of Syria, and not all of it through a corporate/national propaganda filter--and biases are balanced out.

    No thank you. I think some people use TBOT like Twitter though.

  12. Besides an ancient myspace, TB is all the "social networking" I need.

    I had a Twitter account, but I didn't do anything with it. I don't know even know if it's still active. I guess I should check, huh?

  15. Is anybody's life that cool that everyone else needs to know every time they fart, use the restroom, or have what they think in a witty thought ?

    You can tweet your local radio stations that you have a gig ,if you have a soundcloud page or other linked audio it should act in theory as an electronic press release.

    theoretically

    Used it once, forgot my password, thought it was stupid and didn't bother going back on. I believe it was @YankeesObvs but I'm not gonna be following anyone back! :p

    Not being a debbie downer, but it has no appeal to me. I'd be fine in a world without texting and twitter. Younger generations' ability to communicate is suffering big time and I have to place a little blame on texting.

    That being said, I love the commercial with the facebook/twitter kid saying that her parents had no life as they were out living it while she was online with her "friends".
