Yeah, I get how it works, I just don't get why it matters. It's lame. It's pointless. It's incredibly time-wasting when we Americans allegedly barely have time to even brush our teeth in the morning, let alone alert the world at large that that's what we're doing, have just done or are planning on doing.
And the media? I'm embarrassed for them. The media is treating Twitter the way it treated Barack Obama six months ago. They're in love with it and can't stop talking about it. Why?
Is it because it's so easy to use that a donkey could figure it out? (I mean, politicians use it, for crying out loud!)
Is it because they're being paid to talk about it?
Is it because they think it makes them cool to talk about how they 'tweet'? (Little do they realize that they are rapidly making it uncool, just by their participation in it.)
Are they trying to recapture their youth? Because that's really who Twitter is for - kids. Only kids would find something so self-absorbed and inane to be worth the effort it takes.
I don't get it and - for once- I don't care. I'm usually very interested in new internet stuff but this one is just gonna have to steamroll on over me. It's idiotic and I'm not playing.
BTW, I just finished trimming my dog and I'm getting ready to cook dinner. Then I will go to a movie with my husband.
Just in case anybody cares.
