twitter sucks. so why does everybody LOVE twitter? i don’t give a shit about what other people are doing. if you’re bored enough to twitter, then why would I care about your boring life? i also hate the cutesy layout. it's all “bubbly” and light-blue and it makes me rage.

its really completely pointless, myspace already implemented a thing exactly like what twitter does anyway, so twitter will succumb to it.

Everybody loves Twitter just because everybody else loves it too. It's a fad thing, if you use twitter somehow you become hi and cool as well.

I get so pissed off when my friends send me links to semi-famous peoples twtter accounts and expect me to read the whole fucking thing. I'm sorry if I have a fucking life. I work fulltime and I'm a full time student. That takes all the time I may have. Reading pages of retarded "tweets" is the last thing I'm doing.

I hate twitter too. The only mildly good things to come out of it have been cursebird and twistori, which are amusing for about 1 minute.

signed. twitter sucks. why limiting messages in a medium without any "real" limits? stupid shit.

7 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-05-12 21:15 ID:EZ6XmLBS

Twitter is a fad, it'll pass with time.

I like Twitter, not obsessed and not seeing what's the big deal though. I'm fallowing 6 people and usually post once a day. I don't see what's your problem, besides all the attention it gets, which, I have to agree, is kinda annoying.

Take it for what it is, a simple service to share short messages with people, works quite well for that. There are some advanced use cases and sometimes I do feel that Twitter has enormous potential, but it's not really thanks to Twitter, it's just the way people are using Interwebs nowadays.

But then again, I'm such a person who has a FriendFeed account.

9 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-05-19 21:45 ID:34AXURE6 is technologically better and seems to have more intelligent people. Twitter is full of marketers who just yell into the wind, gg.

10 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-05-23 14:09 ID:Heaven

I like Twitter, however I'm not one of those fags who updates it every half hour. I just use it to highlight important things.

11 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-05-25 09:19 ID:6kI0cvfG

>>9 is shit and saying that it's technologically better than twitter is damning it with faint praise

12 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-05-28 05:33 ID:Heaven

I don't care about these social websites. They're all, in fact, retarded, along with their users. I've never used any of them. Any website that advocates identity and such sucks. 404@4-ch FTW.

13 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-06-01 13:09 ID:8QNIZYlA

I'm sure that is what everyone said about myspace and facebook as well.

14 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-06-02 02:36 ID:Heaven

and myspace has already passed.

15 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-06-13 05:30 ID:Heaven

I think if facebook doesn't fuck it up, they might be able to survive a pretty long time. Being able to look up people is a useful tool. I've found that it's a good method of contacting people that would be hard to get to in any other way.

Of course, history shows us that it won't last forever. How many websites that were really popular four or more years ago are still really popular now?

I don't know anyone who loves twitter other than media personalities and one or two camwhore bloggers.

Most people use Facebook. I have tracked down friends that I haven't seen since I was 11 on Facebook. It keeps me up to date on friends and family. I can feel connected without actually having to call.

17 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-06-20 04:25 ID:Heaven

Twitter taught me that there are a lot more attention whores than I thought.

I don't know about the rest of you but I actually think that Twitter could have been the best thing to happen to the internet in a long while.

Imagine for a moment that instead of asking the inane question of "what are you doing?" Twitter asked "what are you thinking?" Users would then "tweet" away their ideas, thoughts, concerns, and worries - things that their friends actually care about, rather than what they had for lunch, what happened during lunch, and what happened after lunch. Include a reply/comment system that allowed for the creation of multiple threads from a single "tweet" (each thread being created when a different user comments/replies to a tweet) and that doesn't spam your followers' inboxes with spam.

Personally, I'd love to use a service. But is Twitter such a site? A website created for the sharing of thoughts or ideas? No, it's a way to further estrange yourself from those whom you supposedly love by networking through an impersonal medium.

ahmadinner jacket has managed to pull twitter back from the brink of obsolescence.

I got nostalgic and decided to go to this place to see if it still existed (which it does). Holy fucking crap, did I really use to post shit like this?

32 Name: 405 - Name Not Allowed : 2022-05-06 09:41 ID:Heaven

If that is you it is impressive to reply the day after, 7 years later, about a post from 6 years before then again.
Seriously, congratulations.
