Just to say....it's 'tweeting', not 'twitting'.

Thanks for the lesson.  $booboo$
Twitting or tweeting, I'm sure we  all understand what is being said.   Mind you from some to what I have seen on Twitter I get the impression that there are a number of Twits and Twits really do Twitter!

Yeah maybe.... but then they should call it Tweeter and not Twitter.  ZXZ

Still interesting enough for you to look at it though, apparently?  8)  ;D

There's no maybe about it, mate, it's always been like that.

Actually, not interesting at all!  I have never used the facility and have merely been curious as to what actually goes on there.   I have surmised that it is an attraction for people who cannot compose a full sentence and like to fill their comment with signs and symbols none of which would make sense to the average man stumbling across the site. 

I prefer the Blogs and Forums where there is at the least some semblance of sensible debate.

The Twitter tutorial is just as confusing!

Well, with 200,000,000 active users, including some of the world's richest & most intelligent people, there must be something to it....  ;)

I just cannot see how it will enhance my life.

I can't think that I will ever make it 200,000,001  _))*

I've had a go with it... got about 60 followers, and I have a similar number on my following list.

But I haven't found it to be much use to me.

Dave will probably tell me that I am not using it to its potential (which is true) ...but it never grabbed my interest enough to persevere with it.

I mustn't be 'rich or famous' enough.

Rich is very good, but I do not want to be famous :o   I did one tweet back in August, never had a reply! I can never see how to follow a conversation?  I assume I would Tweet something like ''today I went to Asda'' but who would care?  Facebook on the other hand is great!
