Twitter Jitters?

Filed under Tech  

Is Twitter giving you the jitters? I’ve recently started using it, and am finding it almost as evil as spam!

According to Twitter.com, it is

a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

So in theory it sounds good… but in practice…

How’s it going for you?

What’s my gripe with it? I’m only following 14 people with my personal account, but already the number of “tweets” or conversations I have to follow is way over the top. It’s not unusual for me so see 50+ new tweets every morning when I turn on my computer!

Now before you tell me… I know I could simply “kill” the ones that are “contributing” too much to the “conversation”…

But it intrigues me how some people can “follow” several hundred (or even thousands) of people on Twitter! Where DO they find the time to do that? Or is it just an ego thing to see how how many numbers you can rack up beside your name?

Would you believe you can even set it up to send your incoming tweets to you via SMS? That could be “fun” (and possibly even expensive)!!!

So is Twitter the best way to be social on the net… or is it the biggest waste of space?
