What the Hell is Twitter Anyway?

I'm getting the feeling I'm the only one on the internet who doesn't do Twitter. Not only do I not do it, I can't even figure out what the fuck it is. I went to the site and read the 'About Us' but I still got nothing. I used to have a Yahoo 360 profile, Facebook account, and a Myspace account. I did away with Facebook months ago and I severely neglect Myspace for this blog thing now. 360 is apparently like the cottage cheese look of my ass, I can't get rid of it, try as I might. I need another computer time suck like I need to devour an entire carrot cake but the attention whore in me is saying, "screw the husband, kids, and housework, do Twitter". I'm gonna do it, aren't I? Shit!

Twitter is OK, it is to promote our blog mainly!!! But hey... housework needs a new reason to be neglected!

So are you gonna tell us what Twitter is or must we live in ignorance?

Twitter is basically a site to go and post updates. It's quite simple, stupid and yet addicting. BTW thanks for coming to view my blog, I agree you and I seem to be one in the same LOL.

I signed up for Twitter but I still don't get it. I didn't like it. I think that it is more for those people who have Blackberries or are at a computer all day. My opinion is that it is not really a SAHM thing.

Do we really need to be that "in touch" with each other? Are we really that important? Can't we wait a day or two and call or e-mail our friends? Who do we think we are? 99.9999% of the people in this world are not doing anything to impact 99.9999% of the people in this world. Barack Obama? Bill Gates? Hank Paulson? Osama Bin Laden? I'd like to have a moment to moment run down of what they are thinking! "Twitter me, President of Iran." If you are not one of those people,just e-mail me tomorrow or call at the end of the week. Too much communication that really doesn't truly communicate anything of substance. We are obsessed with the trivial and are all becoming "fame-whores." Look at me everybody, I just had a thought! I just passed gas! I just read a book! I heard a noise! Who cares!!!! It all serves as one gigantic distraction that keeps us from truly communicating in a substantial way with ourselves, others, God. That's it.

Have you figured out what Twitter is and how it works yet? If so, can you let me know?? I tried to figure it out once. I registered, I have a Twitter name and a shitload of people are following me so they can be notified of all the comments I never post. I can't figure it out. I have a neglected facebook and an even more neglected myspace. I don't understand ANON'S comments in relation to your post? Guess I'm just dumb.
