My email inbox gets, from time to time, an invitation to subscribe to twitter. Being a bit curious I opened the page and read some of the "twitters" All of them, without exception are unutterably boring. I cannot understand what people see in it.
I wonder if it is me that is the problem.

With twitter you curate your own content. You can make it as interesting or as boring as you desire. They key here is make it your own. But to do that you have to invest the time to look for what you want your twitter feed to be filled with. Reading just a few tweets is not even scratching the surface of what is available content wise. That will almost result in a boring review every time.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

I am sure that Animal is right. I am convinced that anything I have to say would be boring. That is why I have no interest in twittering.

It depends on who you follow and who you interact with. It is what you make it. I was on for a year before I really got into it, now I've made lots of friends on there. Don't just follow the usual celebs, find the people who aren't famous but who are funny and unique, then get involved in conversations.
