[MERGED] Post your twitter link

I'm fairly new to Twitter and "tweeting" so I was hoping that some of my fellow MR members might like to exchange Twitter usernames, at the moment my following list looks pretty sparse and my list of followers even sparser! In fact it's a pretty sad state of affairs

So if anyone wants to follow me my username is: mst150684

i use it, but why would you want strangers to follow you and you to follow them?! do you care what someone else is doing if you don't even know the person?

not me my friend.

I don't think twitter has really caught on anywhere except the coasts. I'm in the Midwest and nobody is really on it. I rarely even tweet, cause I know no one who'll listen. It's sad. Facebook seems where it's at right now.

I'll just post here every time I buy a coffee or read the newspaper.

The reason Twitter hasn't caught on so much is that most people (like me) just don't get it. Maybe if I had an extremely active social life and was always spontaneously meeting people places, then possibly. But since the average person isn't like that, they just don't see the point in posting about daily habits. It's like friends who are chronic Facebook status updaters...drives me nuts. I don't care that you are drinking coffee and reading the newspaper. That is just not interesting in the slightest.

But when I used to be on tour with 50 other people my age in a different city every week, I think it might have been a pretty cool and useful thing.

I agree. I'm in Omaha, NE and nobody uses twitter. I have an account, so the day it catches on and my friends use it I'll be ready, but all people use here is Facebook. Our local newspaper has had some articles on Twitter and saying how great it is, but people still refuse to use it

I'm in Omaha too, and I use it.

I usually just use it to follow interesting people who have more to say than just "so and so is taking a crap / brushing their teeth / studying chemistry." Kevin rose generally has some interesting links on his twitter, so I follow him.

I use the same user name for everything so you can guess what my twitter user name is.

Right now I have 2,757 tweets. You *might* consider me a frequent tweeter.

Message me if you're going to add me, because I normally block people who I see as random.

That's not really the point. You use Facebook statuses to keep in contact with freinds/relatives. Twitter is more for following others who have the same interests as you... or at least thats the way I see it.

I don't know about the rest of the Midwest, but Twitter is fairly popular in Chicago....

Not to sound like a troll, but what's the actual charm (or use, even) of Twitter? It seems to me it doesn't do anything Myspace or Facebook can't do, and I can only find marginal merit in Myspace and virtually none in Facebook.

Maybe I'm getting old. ):

It's all with the people you know. Some people I know I contact better with Twitter, some better with facebook, and others email.

Just like you wouldn't see any merit in AIM if all your friends use MSN.

+1. Very well-said.

Still, I'm afraid I might be out of touch - even texting back and forth incessantly doesn't make sense to me. A phone call could have completed the conversation in 2 minutes, and I even hate talking on the phone. (:
