Twitter TMI

Twitter is addictive.

What is Twitter, you ask? I think of it as a micro-blog where you can share everyday minutae with others (your followers), and follow the everyday minutae of others. And Twitterific is a little app that facilitates posting (or tweeting) to Twitter, made by the wonderful folks at the Iconfactory.

What’s your take on Twitter? Is it fun and informative, or a complete waste of time?

    I’d take the third option a.k.a waste of time

    Shouldn’t that read “soothes on contact” rather than “relief” in the first panel? And how about the spelling of hemmorrhoid? Is this poking fun at the fact that twitter posts are incomprehensible and suffer from bad spelling?

    um… yeah, yeah, that’s it, Martin – twitter posts suffer from bad spelling. ;)

    (Seriously, the misspellings were purely unintentional – but I think they’ll stay in for the reasons you’ve cited.)

    The great thing about twitter is that it’s all in the way you use it. If you want to have it just be fun, post fun messages and follow fun people. If you want it to be informative, post informative messages, and follow informative people. Or you can do what most seem to do, and mix it up quite a bit depending on the mood you’re in.

Tell me what you think!
