I know I'm always way behind the curve, but I can't imagine why I would ever need twitter. The news comes on at 5 and 6 every night. I can look up anything I want to follow on the net; why do I need to know what anyone is doing every minute?!

I use it to share links to things I am working on, etc.  It's not a be all end all, but it's a goof tool for what I use it for.

I actually had 2. One is for the website I used to run. Not my Monroe's Lost History. And I have a personal one that I get info from veterans organizations. I may start using it for my history one, not sure yet since I rarely use it.

I created a facebook fan page for my blog and then linked my twitter ( https://twitter.com/#!/NHDaveH ) to that so that I can share a link on Facebook and then it tweets it out automatically.  You should try that Mayo.  I've noticed about a 5% increase in hits since I did that last month. It may or may not be related.

I was an early tweeter..  Parvo had a good time on twitter..  I used tweetdeck and I could organize and watch what was trending all at the same time..  Something happened to tweetdeck so I just lost interest in Twitter...

I was on Twitter before I got on Facebook.
I follow a couple people from MT.
I like read the comments during sporting events.

Never had one. And like someone on here said, I wouldn't have a cell phone if I didn't have kids. I just don't understand why people got to talk so much. I wonder how many people could make it just one day without talking to someone?

Most people would get uncomfortable. Human beings are social creatures.

I use it but mostly as a "breaking news" system on my phone...

I don't tweet about me (or the dog) 8* 8* 8*

I don't use Twitter. Tried it for about a week and failed to see the point. I'm in Sammy's camp on this one.

I'm still struggling with apps on my Blackberry, and how to know when I can start shooting again in laser tag after getting hit.  Twitter.....I'm pretty sure I'm not quite ready for that.

Your Blackberry probably has a Twitter App already loaded Fuzz...    not difficult to create an account...   I just follow a few news outlets...   gets me "breaking news" alerts!!!

Then you can increase from there...   there is no end to the subject matter (wink, wink) out there 8) 8) 8)
