Its been a few days since signing up to Twitter so I've had a chance to sus it all out. Total waste of time like Facebook but better THAN Facebook....unless you like all the Facebook apps.
I fucking hate Facebook.
Twitter's great for talking shit real time to people you'd only otherwise read about or talk to in the comments of their blog. I talk to most the crew that come by here and we all spend the evening or day waffling shit while we're doing other stuff online. IT's great for organising stuff too. It's basically an instant messenger with one window for everyone.
On the negative side if you sign up to too many other twitters you'll get bombarded with spam - (as Uamada found out) - and you can't keep up. I wouldn't bother signing up to news feeds or shit like that. My suggestion is keep an eye on who follows you and block the spam. You don't get that many - like one or two a day - but if you let it get away you're gone.
The Tweet Deck is a download must. It's like a control panel for Twitter.
BUT, the plus side is finding the quirky feeds. I got this from SnoopDogg this morning.
"snoop d o double g i make that shit go bump bump"
If you didn't know you'd think it's Ghandi speaking. lol. Plenty of fake celebs out there too. So watch those. Do a little research on who THEY'RE following and you'll figure out if they're real or not.
I'm following Weird Al Yankovich too. rofl.
