PostSubject: Have a twitter account?   Tue May 01, 2012 7:20 am

So, I got off facebook for a while...long story...and...

I decided to see what twitter is all about. I don't get it. Right now, the only use I have for it is news updates. There's something called trending, but I don't see how you join in...most of the posts are a bit on the immature side, like by kids/teens maybe...but very interesting to see what pops up as the current "trend" because it's worldwide & popular at that moment.

Anyhoo, anybody have a twitter account and know what the crap you are supposed to do with it?

The beast has one..........I, uhhhhhh, well you see,......okay, I admit it.......I hacked it to keep an eye on him..........

So here's the deal.......twitter became really popular after all of us, shall we say mature, folks took over facebook. The teens think that it is their own private "get away".......other than that......not much to twitter.....

I have an account, but I never use it and think it is a bit silly, to be honest. I have no idea why people would think others want to know about what they think or what they are about to do? I do see breaking news that is tweeted at some URL I have bookmarked, but really I don't get it.

But then, I am not a fan of Facebook, either, as I said before. I use it a bit for my Reiki business, but otherwise nope.

I have two twitter accounts. The main one is attached to my Police Facebook account, and I use it to send out notices. I use it to warn the public of traffic crashes and other updates.

My personal one I haven't used in quite a while because I use my personal phone for the police account.

I see no use for one. If I am in the bathroom, do you really want me to tweet about it?

Bob Beckle had the best comment on Twitter. He called the messages 'twits'.

Giggle Well said. I doubt you need to know what I eat for lunch, and since I don't do too much exciting, I think I can just come here and chat if I feel the need for virtual company Very Happy

Exactly. I also hate people talking on the phone while in the bathroom stall. Do you really want to hear : Well, you know Jane she said, (uhhhhhhhherrrrwahhh, splash......), she said to Bill: affraid Yuck Yuck Yuck Yuck Crazy

True...while out somewhere in public and some people yell, too. I got next in line behind a lady who was having an argument on her cell, and she was cursing at the top of her lungs at someone. It was truly obnoxious and I'm glad my kids weren't with me Yuck Splash Giggle

You are right again, Joy. Many time times the patients can't face that they are the ones on the couch...that explains a lot. Yes
