KawaiiNot: I don't buy that tweeting is replacing txt messaging. Twitter is where cats, dogs, and celebrities go to talk self-absorbed smack. SMS messaging will always be needed for sexting I imagine.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: And Twitter doesn't exactly work for messages I don't want to broadcast to freaking everyone. Since I'm generally not an AW, texting it is.

InternetSecurityGuard: 1992? Text messaging is a lot older than that. Perhaps they are referring to text messaging being integrated with cellular/PCS handsets? Because we had those great big two way Motorola Advisor pagers back in the 80's.
pup.socket: And Twitter messaging is itself so 2006.
Phil Moskowitz: pup.socket: And Twitter messaging is itself so 2006.Twitter is like oval bike wheels to me. How the hell did it ever get popular? Uglier than Eastern Europe.
Fizpez: You mean you wont need to pay $20 extra a month for unlimited texts that, even if you texted 24 hours a day for the entire month, would cost your provider about 25 cents total? that text messaging?
APE992: Do pagers even function in the US anymore?
Paelian: Is it just me, or the Daily Fail being unusually stupid today?
theorellior: LOL at the people who still think Twitter is for attention whores and people pooping.

Beer It's What's For Dinner: cig-mkr: You mean I should give this up?[www.johnytech.com image 338x250]Aww, I had one of those once. My girlfriend at the time used to page me clever things like 5318008. Then she came out as a lesbian, so it makes a lot more sense in hindsight.
UsikFark: People can follow you, so you KNOW how popular you are. People want to know.
Quantum Apostrophe: [upload.wikimedia.org image 800x502]LOL STOP MORE LIEK 121 YRS AGO AMIRITE STOP
Phil Moskowitz: UsikFark: People can follow you, so you KNOW how popular you are. People want to know.The appeal to vanity. It's like emotional crack.
gingerjet: FTFA The average 12 to 15-year-old send 193 texts a weekI send more than 193 IM, texts, and iMessages in ant given day. Somehow I'm not buying that 12 to 15 year olds aren't sending that many in an hour.
dmars: Not sure why, but hash-tags in front of shiat annoys the fark out of me, that is the irrational reason I hate twitter.
