I just don't get the idea of twitter at all and how it would be in any way useful/entertaining/anything.

It's like a facebook status update... as a website.

Well its helped save peoples lives in some natural disasters + I already explained how it introduced a new layer of real time search which makes "developing/breaking stories" more informing than ever imagined. (I don't expect people in gen chat to actually retain info)


I only use it for business. It's easy enough for a Monkey or Aussie to figure out which is why it caught on like wild fire.

Explain yourself mongrel.

Facebook is pretty shitty as well, but i can at least see it has features which can connect people and be entertaining.

It's helped save peoples lives in earth quakes where they were trapped under rubble (<-- god I love that word) and they posted an update explaining their whereabouts or what building they were in.


In a business context? A company with a loyal customer base that decides to opt-in and subscribe to its updates can instantly be notified if say...

- A large clearance sale or something noteworthy is happening on that day or a specific date. Those people will be reached before some one who gets the news paper a day or two days later as an example. A business can find multiple uses, it just depends on what they decide on sharing.



Oprah is using it. Everyone loves Oprah and her fat gleaming vagina.

Entertaining to 16 year-old girls maybe. Twitter has the only applications that I would ever consider using facebook for minus all of the ones I would probably ignore. I don't use facebook, so maybe I'm just being ignorant here, but if it's just a more complicated Myspace then what good is it? Another thing I should mention is that I would only ever use one of these sites to promote music, so facebook isn't the best choice for me. I suppose if I had an undying urge to trade stupid pictures with people online or some shit, I might consider it, but for now I just interact with people I know the old fashioned way.

How did they use twitter?

Via either the internet or their phones?

...

Not sure if you see my point.

The business example is just advertising... Advetising inhabits pretty much every medium.

I still can't see how twitter provides anything.

Facebook is just putting up pictures of yourself and people you know doing shit, and talking to other people about stuff like that.

It's stupid, but it's useful and entertaining to some degree.

How could reading someone minute movements be either of those things.

The only twitter i have seen is Rae's, and it does his public image nothing but harm.

Gotta agree about advertising entering every medium. Free promotion and advertising is essential in our present time since almost any company needs to cut expenses.


Rae on Twitter is mind botteling.



Pat you ignored what I said about a new layer of search. Its rumored that Google is about to buy them out before competitors like Yahoo or Mircrosoft does. It's amazing a small start up has gained world recognition in such a small time frame. I think they should let Google acquire them since they need that kind of infrastructure to support their service which is growing immensely over night.

Yeah, i completely skipped over that after reading the bit about saving people lives, and moved on to the bottom paragraph.

I dig what you're saying about news being available first hand almost instantly.

The problem is, i don't see how it could ever be organised.

Google i guess will buy anything that is popular.

I have wondered ever since they bought Youtube whether or not it has been a worthwhile investment.

Obviously advertising revenue would be immense, but youtube seems to be dying a slow death.

Google's got major problems on their hands with youtube. The costs to support the service (which is astronomical) is exceeding the revenue they are pulling in.


Their revenue streams are based on CPM's from music videos that only I think 2 of the major record labels have signed onto providing after months of legal threats, talks, more negotions etc. Google only gets CPM impression money from about 7% of its content. The problem lies in the fact they can't make money off user generated videos. They should of foreseen this. Its estimated they will lose 270 million in 2009.

Why does it have to be? What well organized intenet phenomenon are you comparing it to? If Google buys Twitter, you can expect to see it's many uses unfold. A lot of these sites evolve the same way. I remember youtube back when it was virtually unknown and it was just a site made to host shitty home videos or whatever and now it's abused in so many ways, it's crazy. Same could be said for Myspace.

Oh and that's not the fault of the site's own design as far as youtube goes, I'm sure you know. I don't think anyone predicted Youtube would ever slow down, unless they were aware of the impending shitstorm of copyright violations. That's what the obvious problem is. If nobody had stepped in and put a stop to that, youtube would be an even bigger monster than it is. Maybe it's been a good investment either way, but apparently they're starting to have trouble with it.

My point was, i don't see how twitter can act as a sort of first person instant news service, because i can't see how it can be organised.

And on the second point, yeah i know, Google just bought it at the exact right moment for the guys who created it, and the wrong moment for them.

LOL I feel like a douche for being all defensive about it considering I don't really use it religiously or for personal use. The thing about natural disasters is that phone lines are usually jammed and only text messages and small bits of data get through. Thats what to take away from what I mentioned. Although twittering before a 911 call is funny shit.

When you say organized what do you mean by that? Are you aware of the term "Information Architect" and what that entails?

I mean that, how could you organise news like that when random individuals are posting this news randomly whenever it occurs.

I can't see how it can be centralised.

Or even how you could search twitter like that.

If there is an event in one country, and one person decides to talk about it on twitter, how would this person's twitter be easily viewed?

A keyword search on twitter would be pointless it seems.

I don't know what 'Information Architecture" is.

Twitter was created by the white devil to control the original man by further dumbing down society and whitewashing and brainwashing the sheep by making them more and more dependent on devil technology.

I aint against sites like this, its good promotion for artists and stuff. its just another way of utilising the power of the internet.

but these networking sites are taking over the lives of some ppl. I see some fellow students on these sites 24/7. maybe im part of a certain percentage of ppl (5% possibly) that dnt see any benefit in following the lives and hourly actions of my friends. neither do i want ppl to know what the hell im doing.

i guess the most worrying thing is whenever i say how sad facebook is to all my friends who have it, they will defend it to the death and get really mad. acting like i was dissing their mum or soccer team.

The beauty is that most people only use it on a mobile phone, so you can now scrap your phacebook account unless you still have the desire to look at youtubes or photo albums of "girls drinking cocktails at the scummy club" or "dudes white water rafting and drinking light beer"


You can even still communicate with WTC FGGTs by simply making a tweet like the following:

@Surreptitious "Whats Dick taste like?"


and all your coworkers and family can then see that (i think?)
