WTF is Twitter So Popular?!

December 10th, 2008

I kind of like the idea about micro-blogging but don’t have any clue why this service is so popular. I think that people have really overdone themselves with Twitter. It’s everywhere, even new US president is using it for gods sake. What has happened to us people?

Don’t assume I’m saying this from no experience, I was actually using it when it got so popular but after that quit with this insane activity. Maybe someone actually wants to know what I’m doing but other than that what’s the whole point? We have Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn etc. that do so much more so I really need some explanation for all those histeria from everyone. As I really like to read tech news, I got so angry one time with ReadWriteWeb and their twitter posts that I wrote to authors for some explanation. I think even they don’t understand the whole rush around it =) … don’t think other tech blogs are any different, just visit TechCrunch, you’ll see what I’m talking about.

My conclusion:

I can digg blogging, that’s obvious since I blog myself. In my opinion it really changed the face of conventional journalism forever. But, micro-blogging in 140 characters or less from your cell phone just to tell everyone your up-to-the-minute state of mind?!! – Akshun J

Twitter was made by media, quite like Paris Hilton – but instead of making a porno they got fame from abusing our minds!!

      Some tweets are maybe worth following but in general I really don’t like the idea of this kind of micro-blogging. Facebook is still my first and foremost the only option 😉 … Still, I don’t want to hurt anyone that use Twitter!

    I agree, I don’t see the point of it. It’s actually pretty annoying, specially because when you go and read someone’s twitter it’s all disorganized is whatever order it was sent. That annoys the heck out of me, and in that regard Facebook does a way better job (besides that it does way more stuff, as you mentioned).

      I like its simplicity but as you said it is really disorganized and moreover it has become a group porn show for celebreties.

    I still don’t see a reason in twitter, micro-blogging. WTF; Is this what the world has come to? facebook, myspace, people should be getting off their asses & actually be doing something important rather than blogging, chatting with online friends & having cyber sex. Get your 500 pound ass up go outside & get a life, the internet is so evil.

    Wondering the same. I finally started using twitter after resisting it for months. Everything I read about it says it is so great for drawing traffic. But it just annoys me and everything everyone else posts seem irrelevant. I just made a post today about drinking jamaba juice by the palm trees, just to have something to say because it seems like the kind of thing other people keep posting. I think I’ll keep at it for another few months and see if it gets me anywhere, otherwise I’m dropping it because I think its awful.
