I hate to break it to everyone, but twitter is stupid. I know that “breaking” stories are found there and that entertaining comments abound, but the whole concept is bizarre. First off, people update the innocuous things they are doing as if the world is interested, “i just had a coffee” isn’t exactly riveting reading, but the even more ridiculous thing is that people eat this stuff up! And not just from celebrities “tweets” but from their friends as well. It is a way for us all to stay wholly connected without actually ever knowing who anyone is, just what they do. I understand that this phenom has swept the nation and that people are using twitter as a communication tool, but I have to think that eventually everyone will wake up and realize that the whole thing is bogus. Frankly, I think status updates are ridiculous as well, but at least those are connected to a persona with pictures and networking tools, and blogs. I just do not understand the fascination with twitter and I sincerely hope it will go away. Twitter is tremendously tiresome, to wit, a total waste of time.
