Occasionally use both for some half-arsed rants/promotion. Not a massive user of either.

Think of it as a "post whatever you want to talk about" thread. It's a place for verbal diarrhea. And there are no mods to edit/delete your posts or TO/ban you.

It took me a while to find my way around twitter, but now I like it.



I have FB as well, but only to keep in touch with certain people from back home. It's just easier for it to all be in one place.

I had facebook a while back, but gave it up due to privacy issues. Never had a Twitter account, nor do I desire one.

Yes I get the irony. But what do any of you guys know about me other than my IT equipment and what I have for lunch? Do I really want perspective employers to see my 18th birthday party photos when I'm drunk? Or for an ex girlfriend to know what I do each night? Or worse a perspective thief who sees I'm out at the pub tonight and can come and help him or her self to my nice apple things.

I've said a few politically incorrect things which if you did a google search you would be able to find (if you knew my real name) . I wasn't too pleased about that so I canceled my account.

What's the difference between a Twitter account and you posting on a forum?

You could say a forum has privacy issues right as well? xD

Ahh okay :P

I'm careful not to get involved with politically charged topics when I'm on forums.

Wait Mr McMac isn't your real name? Why didn't anybody tell me we weren't supposed to use our real names!

Why would you post pictures of yourself drunk and underage? For that matter, why would you even get drunk at that age? Why would you allow your ex-girlfriend to have access to your Twitter feed (or why would you care if she did)?

I respect that you're trying to fend off damage control, but to me the best way to do that is not to do anything that could damage your reputation.

In my country 18 is legal. When I was 18 nobody had Facebook or Twitter as the inventors of both hadn't been born!
My point is when people follow you they can find out lots of stuff you might not want to share with a bunch of strangers! Ex girlfriend was just an example.

I don't have a FB account, but I have a twitter account just for following tweets. I do have instragram but might delete my account, because I doubt I'll use it.
