Can someone explain twitter to me...

It's pretty much just the status message/wall part of Facebook... so why is this so huge now?

I share the whole i don't get twitter thing. I do use it though on my blackberry using an app called twitterberry. I started following new sites that are on twitter like CNN and i pretty much get the headlines as the break to the twitterberry app.

That and Kenny Powers is on Twitter and he's the fucking shit.

I don't give a fuck about twitter....but it gets no more kickass than Kenny Powers.
A lot of people ask me, "Kenny Powers, you're a giant superstar. You can get any woman. Have you ever paid for sex?' And the answer is yes, I have. Several times, in fact. And it's actually kinda cool. You can negotiate practically anything and sometimes, even just kind of do stuff in the moment that you never agreed to pay for and it goes by without much argument.

Well....

The Luchezzi family is making a power play to take over the Buscetta family's turf, and the Vizzini family isn't very fond of that idea. So what you've got is a 3-way mafia war.

Twitter is basically an rss feed to the musings of the lazy and stupid.

Which sufficiently explains the media fascination with it.
Free shit. More free shit.

Twitter is just another avenue of getting your message out. Albeit in 140 characters. We use it for work and it does have it's benefits. We were able to view high school students feeds while they were in the middle of a drug raid on the school. But that's about the only good thing I can say about it. It's great for breaking news.

Good news: Twitter's failing. Kind of.

I think the point where the newest technology fad seems pointless and stupid to you is the point when you officially become "old". It's like all those 30-somethings who don't understand texting someone when you could just call them.

It appears that Twitter is not only useful for keeping your friends up to date on the status of your bowel movements, but also for organizing revolutions to overthrow corrupt and oppressive regimes. Who knew?

I read that Iran shutdown their internet and mobile networks. So how the fuck are they using Twitter?
