    Re: Twitter is 40% ‘Pointless Babble’: Report

    I only use Twitter to keep up with politicians, campaigns, and other political issues.

    Example: Scott Walker is a strong gubernatorial candidate for Wisconsin in 2010, I have him as a friend on Twitter so I can stay updated on where he will be speaking, get an idea of where he stands on issues, and other updates from Walker himself.

    That is just one example of how Twitter can be useful. I agree though that most of it is useless.

    What you and Gibberish mention makes absolute sense.

    40% isn't close. 100% is more like it.

    I sort of get the Facebook thing, though I don't actually do it. Twitter seems pathetically mundane to me.

    So what if they have a better record than you?

    SO more than half of the tweets are NOT pointless babble? That seems to be a lot better than what I get on the local news.

    The only people I'd be interested in knowing what they're doing/thinking on an hourly basis are dead.

    George Carlin.

    Kurt Vonnegut

    Stanley Kubric.

    If the folks at Twitter can get to work on this type of afterlife service, that would be outstanding.

    I once had an idea to make a site that was like Twitter, except it required you to have atleast 140 characters in your "Tweet".

    Wonder how well that would go...

    I sense a distinct lack of original thought in this thread.
