Why in the world do we have a Twitter account? Can someone explain this?

Yes I can
I created this account so that if anyone wants to twit a message to followers about anything special at any time they can. All you need to do is PM me and l'll give you the main account login info

Isn't that what the forum is for, though? Twitter is micro-blogging, which as a one-way autocratic system is diametrically opposed to the completely democratic forum. I'm not sure it's a good idea.

Personally, I like to keep my life organized and compartmentalized, so I wouldn't want my friends on THMMC to see what I'm saying to my friends on Twitter. I'm not angry at anyone specifically, I'm just angry at this recent trend to start mixing and matching every single social networking device without regard to usefulness or privacy.

This account will have followers but not following anyone, so only updates posted via the main account will be shown. It's not mention to take away from posting here on the forum. It's meant to be used when you can't get online by normal means like when I'm on my iPhone without internet access

I still do not understand Twitter, but I like that we reach out in as many ways as possible.

I use Twitter for 2 things...
1 to update my Facebook status
1 to tell my Twitter friends whats going on with me.

Lord knows you don't want your "normal" friends to meet your MINI friends... their heads would explode if they met ME.... :jester:

Then there's Barney... :sarcastic:

I thought I might get honorable mention on that one.

Too HIP for me, or is that expression telltale.

This is truly funny. I remember similar comments about computers and email. Then came the "internet" and web browsers - same comments.

Where privacy is concerned - If you don't want everyone in the world reading it then don't get it near a computer.

Goes without saying. So I didn't.
