I've tried to get into the twitter thing, but cant help but think it's just another thing to log into. a far less functional facebook…and im not a fan of that ethier.

But then who doesnt want to know what Stephen Fry is up to.

The fake accounts are more interesting than the real ones.

I was kind of taking the piss with this thread, bored shitless at work and twitter is like crack to a friend I work with, so thought id see what the fuss is about and if I could possibly dwindle away some time on there.

Just literally signed up now, have no clue about it whatsoever. Wouldn´t mind following the exploits of some comedy writers…can anyone recommend a few? I tried Jon Brown but he doesnt seem to be on there.

everyone on there seems to be following thousands of people and being followed by 10 people.

they clearly cant have enough time to read 1000's of people saying "now in starbucks drinking a coffee" or "just had a shit" etc

sure it will continue to grow though. people love telling the world what they're doing, even if no one else cares.

I am scotchegg on there.

Its great for web / design ppl to share intereting articles and features. They are the real reason it took off over the years, but now the press and media jump on and pimp it to the masses. Not interested in what non tech ppl are listening to on the bus before they go swimming.
