WTF is Twitter?


I didn’t know what Twitter was until last week, and I am none the wiser now. But all I’ve heard about for the last week is how amazing it is or who’s arguing with who over Twitter (Lilly Allen and Perez Hilton). Just see how many articles the Guardian have written on Twitter in the last week. At least half a dozen a day. Wtf? And they also talked about a massive really cool party in East London that heralds how cool Twitter is. I walked past that party and it looked like a fucking Wankerfest. Fuck Twitter.

Yep, having a blogspot is way cooler.

So what is Twitter, I asked about 5 people the other day but am still none the wiser.

I think it's just for stalking status updates of C list celebrities. Today I learnt that Calvin Harris blocked his toilet after a massive dump and that Mike Skinner likes All-Bran.

I got my Twitter out of peer pressure.

I read this aloud in my office with a view to passively insult the social media 'chaps'we share the space with. As luck would have it they were all there. Cue my raucous laughter

@Miss Jo - that actually sounds quite cool. Wouldn't have put Mike Skinner down as an All Bran man.

still don't get if people want to meet new 'friends' why they don't join a club or something, instead of texting people they'll never meet.

Twitter is facebook updates without the facebook, I don't have one but look up what Stephen Fry and Mark Kermode are up to daily.

If The Guardian is now writing articles about Twitter it definitely is the new Facebook. Social networking is ruining journalism.

How do you know these people are these people? Actually no don't tell me. I don't give a shit. I've just read Jade Goody's wedding will be shown live on telly. I hate everything.

I'm going to tell you anyway...I know Stephen Fry's is his because he talks about it on his website and telly and stuff. Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo talk about theirs on their radio show on 5 Live.

I don't know how I feel about the Goody thing, obviously it's horrendous but she's making money for her kids in the only way she knows how/can before she dies and you can just turn the telly off and dance naked in your underwear while it's on.

Although I'm pretty sure you can't be naked with your underwear on, I'll heed your advice and frolic till my hearts content.

That's true. Consider me chastened.

''Twitter'', they've actually put the pathetic diss word twit in the name. Probably like an inside joke to the people who created it, who think that's a really good insult to anyone foolish enough to use it. Like calling a new porn channel 'handjobfromyournan' and seeing who subscribes, or something

I'd love a hand job from your nan.
