Ok so Twitter has been up as of late, so maybe the above cartoon is not as applicable. But something that is, are people’s opinions or their general “take” on Twitter. Want to see some of the more creative answers to the question, do you Twitter? Interesting insight to say the least.
-“Personally, I don’t see the need to follow anyone that closely nor for anyone to follow me that closely. Nor do I want it either way”
-“Marc, call me a troglodyte, but I see no allure to this.”
-“, I don’t give a twitter if someone is looking at olives on isle four third shelf up. 😉 ”
-“Big Brother, anyone?? ”
-“No, I am not interested in what you had for lunch, nor do I share such information with those following me.”
-“I’ve tried it. It could become a black hole that you never get out of. It can suck up your time.”
-“Maybe it will become the new texting once devices catch up with the tech.”
– It’s a question of establishing followers that I find the least attractive aspect of Twitter — if you don’t have followers, you can become sort of psychotic, always talking to yourself in a tiny room with no one to listen to your persistent updates. ”
-” It seems pointless and just another time waster and login you have to try and remember”
-“The internets biggest waste of time ever!”
-“If Twitter is as I understand it, I’m not clear on how it is that any user types anything other than “I’m typing on Twitter”.
-“Either I need enlightenment or Twitter users need lives. Maybe second lives?”
-“Seems voyeuristic or reminiscent of horror and stalker flicks!”
-“It’s a time suck”
-“God bless. to each his/her own, and other sundry platitudes to that effect. But for me, nope. ”
-“I don’t know if it will ever become mainstream. But it does remind me of the way my teenagers use text messaging now. ”
To each his own I guess. I find it interesting that there is such a strong negative opinion, but even more interesting is that some of them may have not ever used it, either. What is your opinion of Twitter? Obviously, even if you have not used it before, you seem to have one. Mad shout out to geek and poke btw.
My teenagers consider Twitter to be spying on other people’s conversations. I am using it to share quick thoughts I have on customer focus and catch the “water cooler” talk.
