Twittering? Really???

"With Twitter, you can stay hyper–connected to your friends and always know what they’re doing...Twitter puts you in control and becomes a modern antidote to information overload."

-- from the Twitter Web site

OK. I checked it out and I still don't get the whole Twittering thing. I love my friends, I do. But do I really need to be "hyper-connected" to them? Do I need to know where they are every second or what they're thinking? How is this the "antidote to information overload?"

I KNOW nobody wants to be in my head. TMI.

Just sayin'.

Hi there - I left a comment and I'm getting weird no can do screens but I'll try again!

When I twitter, I feel like I sound like I'm a whiner, while everyone else seems to only twitter really cool things - so I'm wondering, are other people really that cool, or am I really just a whiner? :)

Honestly I cannot get into the Twitter thing (or I refuse to...ha!) but I'm already addicted to blogging. I just know that blogging, while I love it, is a huge time sucker. Do people really want to know what I'm thinking throughout the day?

Eh...probably not. ;)

I totally agree with you! And, I'm definitely not interesting enough to warrant anyone caring if I ate a tunafish sandwich for lunch or not.

Twitter is so lame. The whole idea of "updating" your friends as to what you're wearing, or thinking, or not doing 20 times per day is just ridiculous! It makes people think they're "keeping in touch" with each other, but really, they're just in the vacuum of the internet.

I know ... I just don't think I have enough interesting going on in my life to Twitter about it (even though I have an account!)

I'm a big fan of Twitter. It's so much easier to type a "mini" post sometimes.
