Twitter? I don't get Twitter....it seems too spare and kinda boring.
I legitimately don't understand Twitter. People always say to me, "oh, do you have Twitter?! I'll follow you!" or whatever it's called. And I always have to respond by saying, "I'm sorry, but no matter how hard I try I just don't get Twitter. If you'd care to explain what the point is then that would be great."
I'm new to facebook, but feel a little uncomfortable about all the little comments on "the wall". I really don't need to know every little thing that my friends are doing, and not sure if I want them to know everything I'm doing. Although, I like the concept of being able to get back in touch with people, it makes me very wary to accept friends unless I know them well. I'm confused about twitter too. I noticed one of my facebook friends had twitter, and every little mundane thing she did that day ended up on the wall. I was confused as to how it was interesting.
Yup. I registered and gave it a shot but when I noticed people were following me, I thought- "why?" Lol....The best I could come up with were those mundane things Corrinne mentioned.
I had to keep removing strangers....why would you want to follow me? You don't know me. I just don't get it either, I guess.
But for those who do- cool. Just like MS and FB- each place has their fans or at least people who like to use them.
I wouldn't have found the Conchords were it not for MySpace.
I wonder if Jemaine will slack off now that the tour is over...I'm hoping he'll post some of the pics their photogs were taking.
I had the exact same questions when I was first introduced to Twitter. There are times when the mundane updates can become irritating. However, I try to follow those who have the same interests that I have. In doing so, I have been able to readily acquire information on various topics from the updates of other Tweets. I also follow news tweets from CNN, BBC, USAToday. I'm a Blackberry fan so I follow various Blackberry Tweeps. They share info. on new apps and stuff like that. More importantly, I get so many great updates from WTF and other Conchord Tweeps.
It has taken me a while to get use to it and actually I am still learning but, I find it fun and interesting. I'm still getting use to MySpace. I have a Facebook account but I can't really seem to get into Facebook. Any tips? I hope Jemaine doesn't slack off and not routinely update their MySpace page.
By the way Laura, I've been meaning to compliment you on your signature LOL!!! Every single time I go to read a post and you are anywhere on that page I have a gosh darn time trying to focus. HaHa! That Jemaine and what he is doing to his instrument...well let's just say...it's quite distracting.
