Perhaps I am getting old

Because I just can't get on board with Twitter. Up until now, I have loved everything the internet has dished out. BBSes? Yes! (And if you don't know what BBSes are then perhaps you are the old one.  Or young one.) The world wide web, back when there were internet phone books? Bring it on. Search engines? Napster? Of course. Friendster, Myspace, Facebook? More, more, more. Blogging? Need I say more.

But twitter? Really? Why would I want to know your every inane thought and action? With the exception of a few people that I can count on one hand, I just don't care. Those few people can tweet and I would read, but no one else. Obama. My dog. Robert Downey Jr. That's all I can think of.

  1. Oh I so agree! I am a blogging and Facebook fool, but I've tried to do the Twitter thing now at 2 different times throughout this past year and I just. can't. do. it. Not for me!

  3. I thought twitter was SO stupid for about the first 2 years I had an account, and then I realized you actually have to follow people to make it interesting - and not just your "real life" friends. Now I like it - I follow a lot of local news, some local restaurants that post specials, some bloggers (cooking and baby related, mostly), as well as my actual friends. For awhile, I was just reading their tweets, but then I jumped on the bandwagon and started posting semi-regularly too - now it's just another way I can waste time on the internet - as if I need more options ;)
