I'm asking one simple question, to give all the non-Twitterers here a taste of what it's like to be on Twitter.... keep your post to a few lines to play fair... and now my post:


Started a thread on AppleNova. Probably annoyed a few. Price of life. Cheek itched. Scratched it. Hope somebody else posts. It's so boring and lonely to do this all alone.

No WiFi in bathrooms at work. Really unfair. Should be able to poop and IM at the same time. Washing hands easy. Washing phone hard.

Measured the length of drewprops's post to figure out it's 171 characters, not 140 — fail. Posting the results on AppleNova.

@Kickaha No WifI in bathrooms here either. That's when iPhone 3G comes in handy.

I just don't get Twitter. Could it be a generational thing?

Can't figure out where to put my next tweet: here or actually on Twitter? So confusing.

"Hey, I know...let me broadcast to the world - in real time! - every single thing I do, think, say, eat, drink, see, taste, read or expel...in case anyone out there gives a rip. It'll be cool!"

MySpace/FaceBook for those with even shorter attention spans?

Don't worry...you're not alone.

Although drew is older than me, so I don't know what the hell his problem is.





Yeah, yeah...I know. I'm in for it now. What's the Twitter-centric version of being tarred-and-feathered or put on the rack? I guess I'm gonna find out...

Yeah. And those just aren't out there in the numbers you'd expect.

I always thought that "twittering" was a great terminology for "being a twit".

But I'm over 40 - so what do I know?

I guess... but I'm 25 and I don't get it either. So it's not only peoples in the 30's or 40's. I wonder how young you have to be

Yikes...I certainly did not intend for this to morph into any sort of ding/hammer drew exercise. He is, after all, the coolest person here at 'Nova (well, after me).



Seriously, my biggest apologies imaginable to drewprops...if I was on Twitter, that's what it would be saying.

I'm going to start a new social networking service where you only get *20* characters.

I'll call it twit.

I don't think it's a dig on Cap'n Drew as much as this is a dig on the self-important twittering cloud.

Your typical twitterer:

The quality of this board depends on the quality of the posts. The only way to guarantee thoughtful, informative discussion is to write thoughtful, informative posts. AppleNova is not a real-time chat forum. You have time to compose messages and edit them before and after posting.

Wow, just read the "what is twitter" thing on their front page. What a colossal waste of time (and probably business productivity). As if email, same-time, texting and the like don't put a huge drain on people's time already. And people really do this (?), as if the minutia in their lives matters?

Over yourself... get there quick.

Should not have gone to class. It was me, one other kid, and the prof. He told us the class average is a 64. We're all failing!

Wondering how I can use moogs' smiley. Thinking of hijacking a line from Alien3. "What has 2 fingers, two eyes, a red tongue and loves blowjobs?"

So it goes.
