It would be better in the sense that it would keep out the minorities idiots

Twitter couldn't save Iran. It's useless, mindless drivel for morons. It's like Fark but without Pocketninja and spentmiles

I've been playing around with Twitter for a couple of weeks. I just don't get it - it's like Facebook but designed for Unix guys who only use CLI.

Twitter wouldn't exist if users had to pay for it.

For starters, twatter would be better if everyone involved with it realized that there was no reason to create some new, pants-on-head catchphrase for the act of posting.

Jesus christ, why would you pay $5/month for other subscriber's ridiculous comments? When you can get the hoi polloi fo' free?

When it isn't taken too seriously, twitter can be pretty (darkly) entertaining.

At least, that's why I have an account.

I have an account, but I don't actually tweet. I don't think I've ever written one tweet.

All I do is follow comedians pretty much. I can see why people who have something to promote and/or famous people use twitter. I can't fathom why normal people tweet.

I wouldn't have a twitter account except that American Express gives me deals that I can get a statement credit for when I retweet them. To my zero followers. Good jorb, Amex.

Some people pretend Fark is better when they pay. Hmmm

Facebook is only used because everyone is using it. If any large enough group left, the entire thing would fall apart.

All it would take is one session (4 years) of college students deciding they're too cool for facebook and going to some other site for it to die.

Then again, facebook survived "everyone's parents" joining, so maybe it has reached critical mass and is stable now.
