    Final Proof Of Twitter's Uselessness

    Thankfully there is something useful in his first tweet.

    “President to announce loan guarantee today for first nuclear power plant built in US in 30 yrs - 3,500 jobs for construction.”
    But Not even the White House Press Secretary (Gibbs) can save it from mediocrity.


    “It’s been fascinating to watch just over the few days that -- that I've -- since I've joined it. I have enjoyed watching you all comment on women's figure skating and ski-jumping,”
    Methinks NBC did not appreciate the honesty of "Coco" O' Brien when his staff were mercilessly attacking Twitter and its posters for meaningless banter.

    Was there ever any doubt that it sucked?
    Don't work out, work in.

    I'm not a twitterer but there are times when news events show up first on Twitter when they are missing on a regular Google News search.

    It is not entirely useless.

    I think the only time where I was interested in it was when the Iranian riots were occurring and Iran had a media/communications blackout. That must have been, two years after it (Twitter) started? Then after that, nothing interesting about it ever again.

    Watch CNN. Their embrace of "new media" over the past few years was why I started watching more Fox News in the first place.

    It is what it is.

    Twitter is useful for:

    -Keeping track of barebones updates on breaking news
    -Telling everyone about that awesome Animal Collective show you and your hipster friends saw last night
    -Staring wide-eyed in disbelief at how mindbogglingly retarded most professional athletes are
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    1 for 3, thank god Twitter isn't a baseball player.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I would think they are shallow and never have been deep thinkers. To me, it's like more pollution or ugly graffiti just cluttering up the landscape.

    Indeed. Some of it so self-involved. Why does the world need to know that someone just ate cereal for breakfast?
