So I very recently started to use Twitter, pretty much to begin with I didn't quite see the point, I thought no one would care what I think. Then I realised it was quite possibly (at least for me) more enjoyable to read other peoples tweets, rather than people reading my own.

So a few questions, does anyone here use Twitter? Could anyone recommend some interesting people to follow on Twitter (this could include yourself)? And in general what opinions do people have of Twitter?

I always like reading Billy Corgan's and one under YouLookGreat always has some funny stuff to say...
A lot of politicians have Twitter as well.
It is pretty pointless, I never saw why people felt the need to tell everyone what they're doing, especially seeing as most don't really care. xD

it seems to be huge in the uk with all the celebrities using it, i think it novelty will soon wear off though!

Twitter is a trend that will fade away.

What, exactly, is Twitter?

to know to others that are you doing on exact moment...

if you have a twitter, you can write something like that: "hey, i'm on BBS right now"

there has been friends reunited, myspace, facebook and now twitter, pretty soon someone will just adapt another idea to form another social network!

Well, I heard that all of the cool kids are following my Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/againstbelief).

So... yeah.

The point of Twitter is not to tell people what you're doing, it's to have conversations. If you're just telling people what you're doing, you're doing it wrong.

I wouldn't say it's wrong to just tell people what you're doing, but it's not the most efficient way to go. Personally I use it to follow certain webcomic artists and bands and stuff, so I get their updates. I think it's pretty useful in that way.

Really, it has more uses than to just tell three friends when you've had a good sandwich.

to follow news about tecnologies or bands, I use the rss feeds, not twitter... ok ok, it's opinions...

You mean to say it can tell MORE than three friends when you've just had a good sandwhich!?

I use Twitter a LOT. It's a fun way to chat, and it's great for business too. Most people I follow are fellow craftsters/shop owners though, so I don't think I could recommend anyone (except myself of course, Tizzalicious).

Well so far I've made very little progress towards using Twitter fully. I'll follow the twitter links I've found here though (in case you wonder who this strange person is...).

I'm following Stephen Fry, he seems to be fairly amusing.

I really need to find some other comedians/interesting people to follow!

I run from twitter like it's the next mutation of the flu.

My productivity year after year

100% =>

Internet in my life (encyclopedia online, newspaper online, webiste about the culture of cucumbers in northern Tanzania) => 90% =>

Emails => 85% =>

Forums => 60% =>

ICQ/MSN/IRC => 50% =>

Online games => 40% =>

Youtube/Dailymotion => 30 % =>

Myspace => 25 % =>

Facebook => 15 % =>

If I use Twitter, I'll be at 5% productivity. And that's critical.

I got it because AFI revealed their tracklist from the new album by twitting.

I use it to notify me when the ISS is flying above my head. It's the 2nd brightest object after the moon.
