'Twitter'. Who gives a good goddamn?

Fark Twitter.
 
2009-03-05 02:14:45 PM
I honestly think that Fark has now greenlit more articles on twitter than people who actually use twitter.

WTF? They misspelled Wil?

If you'll notice, they also misspelled Wheaton. At least they didn't half-ass on the fail.

I would like Twitter personified to be gloriously assraped with the person I think is the most annoying, self-absorbed, ignorant Twit there.

/Sideways, and with much violence.
//No, let me tell you how I *really* feel. You know, without holding back.

I am guessing that I am not the only person here who thinks Twitter is a stupid fad that will go away shortly. Whoever owns it better try to sell it to Google stat.

They also misspelled Ana Marie Cox.

Stephen Fry Tweets? cool.

So kids with time on their hands like to talk about messed-up attention-whoring celebrities? Sounds like a good reason for another article about the messed-up attention-whoring celebrity!

Maybe I am out of the loop, being past the 40 mark (gasp!). What is so great about Twitter.

I signed up checked it out, signed up with a couple of twitters. The result: A string of non-coherent dribble from people.

At least in fark there is some common thread in the posts.

All I keep seeing is "Twitter is stoopid" but nobody is saying why...

I tweet and I like it.

I just ate half a sleeve of saltine crackers with garlic humus spread on them. It was overly salty and I think I should have used peanut butter instead of the humus.

I don't follow that many people, but two of them probably produce 95% of the tweets I see. Two. Out of about 25...

I'm beginning to think providing instantaneous global distribution for people's stream-of-consciousness babbling might be a less than stellar idea.
 
2009-03-05 03:22:49 PM
We have to use Twitter at work and I just don't like it -- although, we did pick up CHARLIE MURPHY as a follower earlier, so that was cool -- I'm just not sure how many "We went to a bar last night. Drinks were cheap. Got drunk, LOL." or "I love my morning coffee" tweets (god damn I hate that word) I need to see in my lifetime.

Whatever that number is, I'm quite certain I've already surpassed it.

I'm pretty sure that Twitter, like so many popular technologies, was conceived of as being used much differently than it actually is.

I imagine that it was intended as sort of like an RSS feed for what you're doing, as a way for friends to keep up with each other from day to day. Stuff like "I'm going to see Watchmen tomorrow, anybody want to come?" or "I'll be visiting my in-laws this weekend."

Problem is, you can't trust the public to use these technologies responsibly. That's why you have yellow text on an animated orange-and-purple background on somebody's MySpace page, or the sort of inane babble that people put on Twitter.

FWIW, I used it today to cover the Prop 8 hearings for people who couldn't watch it themselves.

So it does have its uses.

I use it to keep people abreast of happenings with our theatre rebuild (our community theatre burned down and I'm the volunteer project manager fixing it)

I'll note that whoever this is isn't close to Stephen Fry - not only is he a bigger celeb, he's got 100,000 more followers.

Actually.. I'm a moron. Complete moron. Fry's second on the list, "whoever this is" is Britney. Sheesh. I think my eyes were crossing when I read the article and just completely misread.

I generally agree, except to say that as long there are morans who think anyone cares about their blogs, there will be morans who think anyone cares about their tweets.

As far as I can tell, twitter is to the geek tab what Michelle Malkin is to the politics tab : an instant green light.

Really tired of hearing about twits on twitter tweeting. Fark them.

i ended up on twitter due to friends, and now those friends hardly ever post, and i end up with a stream of concsiousness from colin meloy. not that that is necessarily a bad thing, he is fairly entertaining. so i could add stephen fry; the stream could alternate between stephen and colin. that would be even more entertaining, i am sure.

/yes am bored at work lots, why do you ask?

Jamdug!: What the hell is this twitter everyone is going on about?

Apparently it's some sort of messaging service for alerting your friends and family whenever you go take a dump.. or something like that.

I don't get it but some folks have weird fetishes that I'll never understand.
 
2009-03-05 05:44:00 PM
Can fark stop with the sponsored vator greenlits that they don't bother labelling with sponsored tag?

Your lack of ethics is showing.

You might not be important but some of us have numerous friends who need to know where we are. Cell phones, text messages are too slow. This is the next generation of communication. People will be talking about Twitter and their power the way they talked about AT&T.

Wil Wheaton tweets all the time. About anything and everything. Always. Amusing a lot of the time.

John Cleese is a very entertaining tweeter.

Twitter is fun for my friends to torment one another while we are all at work, or get people together.

Remove all Republicans: People will be talking about Twitter and their power the way they talked about AT&T.

That is, if Twitter ever figures out how to generate revenue.
