I still don't fully understand what twitter is, is it a site where you just tell people what are are doing at any given moment?

ooo, I usually don't like Twitter unless someone sets one up for an event (Example: the opening night for Brits tour and other shiz like that)

It's a good question. Lots of people use it for throw away updates about their day which can be quite fun if they're good at it, but bordering on the excruiatingly mundane and self important if they're not. I originally didn't see the point and thought it would be as pointless as a Facebook status update (but without photos, etc) however as the site focusses solely on updates, it assumes a new dimension. When following a lot of people it can become fun.

But there are other uses, I'm following a favourite record label of mine and get updates on their activity. It is a great way to feel really connected to people/organisations. You can also follow other streams that feed relevant news topics through out the day so it can be like a customised news stream (I use it for stuff like music, games, technology, etc). My personal one is twitter.com/keiross (http://www.twitter.com/keiross/).

I want to get cracking with an Eidos twitter and a Tomb Raider one too (perhaps missed the boat on the TR one as the Underworld ship has sailed).

god damn man

the website doesnt look rich and texturous as a lot of websites ( like facebooks design, IGN, Gamespot designs and textures. i honestly expected it to be like it but it looks seriously like a outdated website just feels too rushed for something really popular. hope they change the design sooner or later

i'll try my best to follow status updates and i see randoms "following me" this is ............................ eeeeeeeergh e-mails and e-mails about these ppl:hea:

You mean because it is simple, to the point and it works - and isn't covered in images, it doesn't make it good? If you don't like it, don't use it - end of.

And email notifications can be turned off... http://twitter.com/account/notifications

Which is precisely my decision with Twitter.

But I feel no need to bash it to hell just because I think it's pointless.

Chill out. It's a website. No one's making you use it.

I got one ages ago, but got bored with it before it was huge. It's starting to grow on me again though as more bands and singers are starting to use them.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Sounds a pretty interesting way to connect to as you said labels, and things.

Yeah it is. And of course some celebrities use it, and it gives you a window into their everyday lives. If you're not careful it really brings the fanboy out in you. Must be an extension of the ego trip for the celebrities.

I have one, but it seem's pointless. I am still a bit dubious as to use the text messaging service.

One thing I do like is the events being organised around London at the moment.

No Twitter is not something I really like, although I do not know what it is exactly.
I am completely free of Twitter, FaceBook, Hyves, or any other of those... ehm... entities:p <---three hurrahs for the existance of a word usable for... everything:)

Not a twitter, but I've recently become a Facebooker due to the fact people stopped adding applications like mad and being active in a childish way. Now I communicate with my cousins and friends abroad (not the ones I see everyday..what's the point?) with only wall posts and messages.
No longer the childish, messy, pointless applications and comments. :)

I felt the exact same way until I found out Stevie Nicks had one. I couldn't believe the biggest technophobe on the planet had one so I had to make one and follow her. But I don't use it at all. :vlol:
