From Wikipedia:

Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based

posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to the author's subscribers who are known as followers.

Do you use Twitter?

What do you think of it?

Personally, at first I didn't see the point, but it's kinda grown on me I guess. I never have much to say for a full blog post (that nobody reads anyway) so 140 characters of a tweet is good enough for me, and people actually seem to notice stuff occasionally. :p

I'm tempted to make a GB one...

I like to read comedians' twitters because they're usually funny or informative. But I avoid my friends' like the plague because I couldn't care less about what they had for lunch.

I've entertained the thought of getting an account sometime, but (as I'm sure you can attest) I'm kinda too longwinded for just 140 characters. So I mostly just use Facebook status updates for the same purpose.

Hey B....I think the GB one ought to be named Comlink. :p:D

The comlink that Threepio picks up could be the icon.

" Probe Droid is GBnet's monthly newsletter, with instant updates through Comlink, GBnet's Twitter page." :p ;)

The PW blog doesn't even get updated regularly.

The sad truth is 95% of people have nothing interesting or funny to say.

So, no, I don't use Twitter ;)

Twitter: It's like Facebook status updates. But without the rest of the useful stuff of Facebook.

Seriously, I'm waiting for the Twitter crash when everyone flees it like they did MySpace.

I've actually found it to be quite useless. I'll tweet something if it's major but I really can't be arsed to do too much. I may start turning off following people over text. Sometimes two or more of my friends will start having a conversation over Twitter and I'll get all the texts. JUST TEXT EACHOTHER!!

LMAO! I hate that. One of my friends is infamous for that, he'll always respond to me through twitter, then I'll text him back, and he'll be like, what? What are you talking about? :p

Yea, but I blocked the main feed, so I don't have to look at it any more. I mean, the novelty will more than likely wear off for me soon, and I'll forget about it. :p

I think I'm getting Twitter addicted... I now have 3 twitter accounts... Anyone know a decent programme for managing multiple accounts without logging in and out all the time? :p

Check this site out...

I didn't sign up for it cause I only have one account. Sounds like it should handle what you want to do. Not sure if you were looking for a desktop app or what.
