I despise Twitter. Completely and entirely despise it.

What do you have against Twitter, Sun king? It's not really that bad. (Then again, I don't follow anyone who constantly uses txtspk.)

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Many many things. There would be less then 10 people I'd actually follow. I occasionally check Joe's and a few others, but I find the 140 character thing retarded, basically stripping anything you say of any deep meaning. That, coupled with the fact that you basically shrink your life into a series of 140 character postings is stupid. I just hate it.

Well, I've always thought of tweets as the Twitter equivalent of Facebook status updates. They're not supposed to have "deep meaning," but if you feel the need to say something "deep," you can also be concise. They're not supposed to encompass your entire life, either. I usually only take a sentence or two to describe what I'm doing. 

My mom uses Twitter basically to plug her symphony reviews. 

There are also Beatles facts feeds (like Joe's), which are fun to read.

Plus, many of the trending topics (like #endofworldconfessions) are hilarious. 

Finally, it can be informative. Remember the guitar Google Doodle? Many people posted how to play songs they figured out.  

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Fine, I despise a majority of the ways Twitter is used.

I assume you're referring to the txtspk-ers. :D

I have more than 10,000 followers for the @The Beatles Bible account. My own personal one has 110...
I like Twitter - it's good for sharing stuff, and for dropping by now and then. Like any social network, don't take it too seriously and only take part if you enjoy it. None of it's life-or-death stuff.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

I have a twitter! And i think the 140 character thing is great! No one wants to read a 5 page update that much. And 140 characters encourages users to be clever! In my opinion twitter is... Marvelous! a-hard-days-night-george-7a-hard-days-night-paul-3

If it was a really intresting update, then I'd take the five page one, but if it was five pages of someting stupid, like how they walked their dog, then I probably wouldn't want to read five pages about that. Unless my brother or my mom were the one who wroted it, becuase I have the cutest dog in the world!

I named my sister's pet Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. Worst naming of a dog EVER. She acts like if she were on acid all day… crazy dog…

Can happily say that i have never used and have no desire to ever have a twitter account or follow anyone. There are good uses for it but too many people use it to share the most boring, inane, pointless and egofilled garbage that does not deserve to ever be known by anyone.

Same goes for Facebook, once had an account but deleted it as it was never used and i was getting invites from people i have never met or wanted to meet/know wanting me to be their friends. I hate this idea that you need to be connected with the rest of the world when most of what is said is by idiots or just crap. I dont believe for a second that life is any better with either and when you have 20,000 followers, 376 'friends' and a wall (whatever that is for).

No Twitter for this twit - I've never even bothered to learn how to text! (lol I'm old!...old as "Hello Goodbye", basically)

I like some of twitter. I like reading Yoko's twitter because it's interesting, if a little weird. I read Sean and Julian's, too. Jimmy Fallon can have some pretty funny stuff. I don't actively use it, though. Now, tumblr, on the other hand, is absolutely addictive. I don't really reblog...just like to browse.
