Unless your line of business demands a twitter account, then I think twitter is the height of delusions of grandeur.
Sorry if i offend, but I see no positive reason to have a twitter account.

One of the best marketing tools out there, if you know how to use it correctly.

I have a love/hate relationship with it, but I can't deny that it has definite uses.

Other than to follow other stuff I agree, I use it to read other peoples shit, but I don't ever tweet anything, its pointless and stupid... its non-stop facebook status updates basically...

"Delusions of gradeur"?

I can understand that if you are tweeting "I just ate an apple" but it is one of the greatest networking tools out there, and the information speed is better than every news room in the world.

Twitter is faster than an earthquake

another thing that i find a bit odd is when someone denounces something and then admits to using the service within the same sentence.

Or bitching about basketball and saying they're losing interest in the sport on a basketball forum.

Maybe i am ignorant to twitters uses. But what does twitter do that makes it so good?

Example: Why would i want to follow your twitter account?

I think if twitter benifits you in your job or something along those lines then it's good. But imo half to the quarters of the people on it are using it to serve their own ego and tweet about the most ridiculous shit.

Take an interest you have, I will use an example from my own life Comics.

I can follow an assortments of accounts, that "tweet" new and links about comic books. Including individuals deep involved in the industry. Instead of going to a website about comics, I check my twitter stream and get all the news and links I need.

Sure it is, but it's primarily a basketball/Raptors forum. Hense the name of the message board.

Well this is a Raptors board. If I went to a Leaf board to bitch about the leafs and talked about how I preffered basketball that would be a lot worse imo. But whatever.

Losing your foot in an accident would be very bad, but your right losing your whole leg would be worse.
