I do not tweet. I will not tweet. I do not understand those who tweet. What's wrong with IM, email, IRC, in-game chat, cell phones and I don't know, real life?The whole "twit" movement just confuses me.

I'm kinda in the same boat as you. I don't see why we need this for the game, but I can understand the use of Twitter in the real world. I have an LJ I update frequently, and it's a major way for me to keep in touch with friends. Sometimes I post entries that are the perfect size for Twitter, but I never liked the way Twitter and LJ mesh in terms of posting tweets on my journal, so I never bothered.

Believe it or not, not EVERYONE has or wants a cellphone. You don't understand people using Twitter, I don't understand people using cellphones. :)

RT @kuschkusch: People who hate Twitter are the same people who talk on the phone about mowing the lawn and sales on Gardettos at Wal-Mart.

@elf: To each their own, perhaps?@ginka: That's a brash generalization, don't you think?I don't hate twitter, I just don't understand it's popularity when there are literally dozens of other, more effective ways of communicating. Besides, do you really need two-sentence text updates 34 times a day? :)

We are of one mind on this. Twitting / Tweeting / Twittering / etc. is a mystery to me. It appears to be little more than the Facebook "Status Message" system taken to a global medium - which I suppose is neat, for people who don't want to sign up for Facebook or who don't have the time to compose Blog entries. 99% of the posts I see on Twitter are directed to other people, so there's no context to understand what's being said or why.I respect it, as a matter of personal preference, but I've already deleted my Twitter account. It seemed excessive (read: "redundant") to me to host a Blog, regularly update a Facebook page, send IMs, check emails every ten minutes, and still make time to compose short messages every time I eat, sleep, or pee.
