I don’t really get the point of twitter.  And I’m a software designer Undecided.  I also don’t understand the need to take an instagram pic of everything and post it.  “Here’s my dog laying down.  Here’s the food I’m eating today.  Oh look a bicycle.”

I don’t really get twitter. And it pains me to see full grown adults tlkin lik dis on de interwbs bc they thk its kool. No. Your phone has a full keyboard for a reason. Use all the keys! I admit, sometimes my spelling is bad, but I at least make an effort to not intentionally mispell things and use full sentances with capitals and puncutaion. I have one friend who is awful about it. He is a grown man, with 3 kids, a wife and a very good job. So why is it he feels the need to talk in text speech all the time and hashtag anything he does with his wife as “#withmybabymama”?? She has been your WIFE for 10 years. Not your “babymama”.

I get the hashtag thing sort of. But I am 21 years old and don’t fully understand nor do I care to understand Twitter.

I have a twitter but I never tweet nor do i follow anyone i know and no one i know personally knows i have one, I pretty much only follow celebrities. Ok i have tweeted once when I was drunk in the mountains on our 1st anniversary. I was tweeting to the finding bigfoot people because my husband and i were making squatch calls off the balcony haha. But sometimes when i’m board i’ll get on there and just read. I don’t really understand it much. I get the hashtag thing but retweeting…i just don’t understand it.

I’m 24 and I don’t get it either. I hate when I’m watching tv and a stupid hashtag is on the screen for that commercial or that show. Is the pepsi commercial that awesome that I have to tweet it to everyone else that just watch the same f’ing commercial? It is ridiculous. I’ve never had a twitter account and don’t ever plan to, I’m not into what the electronic fads are.

I get the purpose of Twitter for celebs, because fans can follow them and it can be good PR, however I dont get why you would follow everyday people, and I personally dont really have a celebrity that I give that much of a toss about! 

I’d rather know what you are all doing!
