I use it but pretty much only have my dad on my contact list. It's an interesting way to keep up with people you don't see often enough... I feel like a total dork using it though.

I can't keep up with all the social networking websites out there.

it's not really a full fledged social networking site as much as it is a feature. I mean, I don't ever go to the twitter.com website...

I have a little desktop app that displays all of my friends updates. The updates I submit go straight to facebook etc... and you can send updates via your phone or the desktop app etc... It's a little creepy, but like I said my Dad got me into it and it's worked pretty well for staying up to date on him.

Indeed. Twitter isn't for posting the answer to the "what are you doing?" question, it's about the "what has your attention right now?" question. People who post every little thing they are doing are really boring.

This explains why I have a twitter at all. I'm a nice guy, but not that nice. It seems like my facebook has been plagued with other peoples copy>paste picture shit/ self-pics/ Oh Gee Aren't I So Lucky To Have A Mate/ Women Thinking They're Bad Bitches/ Dudes Tryna Flex shit that I can't even breath there anymore. The only time I post anything offensive on facebook is when I need more than 140 characters. I'm not trying to butt-hurt you, facebook, but you do have a tendency to get butt-hurt when people talk about anything that revolves around change.

You fuckers don't think I'm funny, and I get that, but Tom Green and Dana Carvey are following me, so either they like what I do, they're afraid their fan base will disappear completely, or they saw that conversation I had with Tom Arnold. Either way, my best "off the top" material goes to twitter anymore, as I only use it when something nagging pops into my head, rather than sitting there with a pen and a blank page in front of you. Otherwise such gems as, "Jesus From Hell," and "Tweets Von LSD," would have been lost forever =Z

Smudge, true story: I have a cousin who is locked in the loony bin and thinks that all those same comedians are stealing his jokes on twitter. Because they are following him. Because that means that they are reading his jokes.

Now, this boy is locked up because he called to police on himself.

And Smudge, there is a dreadfully eerie similarity to your posts here on the board and my cousins twitter ramblings.

I think you have a diagnosable condition and you should seek profession help. I wold say you should try therapy first but if it doesn't start working fast, I would get on meds I I were you. And dnt waste time treating it. Mental illness creeps on people in their early 20s.

The only reason I thought it was because a friend suggested it. Concerning your cousin, and the nature of your responses to me: Perhaps you're part of the problem. You go on the internet suggesting wildly idiotic treatments to diseases/ abnormalities that exist in others only as far as your diagnosing them. Is it no wonder a relative of yours is calling the police on himself/ locked up in a loony bin? Furthermore: Perhaps he was attempting to lead by example. Give your advice a try instead of just suggesting random inane bullshit to people you don't know. Good luck!
