    "If you`re going to just rip stuff from The Oatmeal, at least credit it."

    I think it`s blatantly obvious this is The Oatmeal. Anybody who`s familiar with The Oatmeal knows this guy`s style.

    And I don`t give a sh*t what anybody thinks. If you use it and right and get it`s full potential (not be scared to ever try it out of fear of feeling gay or use it for 4 days and say "this is stupid") Twitter`s one of the most useful things invented in the past 20 years. It`s only downfall is the immense number of idiots on there but you learn how to drown them out.

    @bcandc,
    Like everything, in moderation I would say it is ok. Like using Facebook to keep up with people you don`t have ready access to, that should be fine. Occasionally even lounging on it is acceptable. Please don`t assume ALL people who use it or even Twitter don`t know how to interact with, as you so masterfully put it, "the real Fing world".

    "Twitter`s one of the most useful things invented in the past 20 years."

    Twitter is only accidentally useful. It`s like if we found that Paris Hilton`s farts cure cancer. The bitch herself isn`t useful and deserves little to no praise.

    Facebook to me is like Twitter, status updates are basically identical in purpose. Unless I have a business that does competitions on there or updates on sales or whatever, it`s not really needed in my opinion.

    So, that basically leaves absolutely nothing to tweet. WTF is acceptable now?

    It`s not a matter of `now` and this picture doesn`t change anything.

    What`s being pointed out is that the vast majority of people never had anything to twitter about anyway. I`m being generous with "the vast majority". I`m not sure that anyone ever had any good reason to use twitter.

    I was going to argue that the name is appropriate because it`s only possible to use it for short little chirrups of text that are somewhat like birds twittering, but then I realised that the comparison is unfair. Birds` twittering serves a useful purpose.

    It is impressive as a business - they`re making money from nothing - but not as impressive as Facebook in that respect. They`ve got hordes of people eager to give away vast amounts of valuable personal information and convinced that Facebook is doing them a favour by taking it. Bizarre.

    I tweet all the time and never tweet about these things. It`s mostly opinions, responses to others` tweets, or just that awesome idea you get when no one is around that you need to document so that you can prove to others that you thought of it first.

    All the anti-Twitter will eat their words when Twitter never goes away and eventually they open an account. It`s inevitable. Just like texting. I used to be against texting. Now, I do it almost exclusively.

    So, if you`re anti-Twitter now, just remember that you`ll be eating your words later, so choose wisely. It`ll happen. So just get over it now.

    supersmash, twitter is just another in a long line of social media that will burn out and go crazy on ads just prior.

    its not the first, livejournal was one of the first, followed by xanga, followed by myspace, soon followed by facebook, followed by twitter, whats the next big social media?

    The only thing worse than people talking about eating, is when they`re being pompous about what they`re eating as if they`re some sort of gourmet food critic.
    Annoying: I ate cake. Yum cake.
    REALLY Annoying: I just had the most scrumptious chocolate torte with marzipan. The caramel lacework was delicate and crisp, while the dusting of roasted cacao gave it a deeper note of old growth forest blahblah. Perfection. magnifique. Sublime. drivel.blahblah.
