    40% huh, that low? I always figured 100% of what was on Twitter was pointless babble.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Yeah, and for some people nothing is more important than getting government health insurance....

    Hmm.....might there be a correlation? Twits tweeting for healthcare on Twitter, producing 40% pointless babble?

    I have seen twitter's practical uses. When that huge explosion happened in Montana earlier this year Twitter was an unbelievably good source of breaking news info. People were getting info via Twitter faster than the news could. The news couldn't even remotely keep up with it. Other than that, I agree it is, for the most part, pointless babble.

    My only issue with that, is its rumor spreading. How can you verify or trust what you read?

    I agree. I have never been on Twitter. I do have a Facebook page (although I am not a regular by any means), and I am STUNNED by the crap people post about. My neighbor posted that she was unable to open the sliding glass door in her hotel room. A friend of mine posted he was watching TV with his daughter. A friend of mine posted that he was getting his car fixed. A friend posted that she was at a baseball game. (Hello? Why aren't you watching the game then?)

    GIVE ME A BREAK! I wouldn't even bore a dead person with such inane facts!

    I have the same feeling when I watch television news, actually.

    Just have to look at both of them with a healthy skepticism, I guess.

    That's very true. Sometimes it's probably a small price to pay for getting quicker information I guess. One can always verify later.
