but...i'm still going to give it a week. I don't have any twitter friends except Tyler and my old history of graphic design teacher. Pretty pathetic that I've got two friends. Oh, and Barack Obama is also
My main problem is that it's hard to find anyone...if you don't know anyone on twitter (because it's still so new), then there's absolutely no point. Get a journal or a blog instead. Twitter is for obsessive people who see no other choice in their life but updating their status six times a day: "John is leaving for work and forgot to shave." "John is in the car and hates this morning's radio show topic." "John just got cut off by a stupid red kia." "John is at work and looking for a parking space." "John is still looking for a parking space, and is now late for work." Thanks, John. No one cared. Or did they?
It's ridiculous how it engulfs people's lives. Don't get me wrong, I love the internet and rely on it to keep in touch with people, but twitter has made people succumb to a new level of dependency. It worries me, it really does. And is everyone simply twittering because Snoop Dogg and Jay Leno and Barack Obama have one? It's like a false sense of security for the American people. As long as they can keep in touch with twitter, they'll know exactly what Will Ferrell is up to, multiple times a day.
I just think it's ludicrous. I'm going to give it another week, but I've pretty much already given up.
