What is Twitter for?
The bass player in my band has been trying to get me to use Twitter, cos apparently its useful somehow...

All I've got is a page full of ads for Dyson, Tesco, Aldi, Lidl and bunch of other shit I already know exists...

Since I signed up, I put one, single, lonesome tweet up, and for the past four or five days my phone has been going mental telling me about all these people I've never heard of who are "following" me as if I've said or done something interesting.

What the fuck?

A pox on it I say...

I think it's the mating call of twits.

But I am technologically challenged so there may be more to it than that.

To be honest, it's main purpose is for fandoms who like to follow celebrities of some sort. I keep up with a couple of fandoms myself- mainly Alex Ramos and Troye Sivan. It's also a great alternative to bitching and venting on Facebook.

I don't use it.

As far as I'm concerned Stephen Fry can keep it - everyone else should get off it...

Your first mistake is listening to an idea from the bass player.

Ba dum tish!! Tongue

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

But I can do that with Facebook... I follow bands and stuff I'm interested in, and get updates from them. And they're more than two lines of information too...

I just don't get it...

Most of what people type seems to be bullshit...

"Burnt my toast...", "Dying for a shit...", "Need toilet paper...".

How is this useful?

My phone goes beep, and I get it out thinking its something important, and its some bloke called Darren, who I don't know, telling me that he's taking a shit!
