Did you see the article in AdAge the other day talking about the fall off in users on Twitter? Something like 20 million users now, down from a peak of 23 million a short time ago. No, this isn’t another Twitter rant from me. As I have explained, I got off it after two weeks because I was hacked and phished. But more than that, I was constantly amazed by the hours some people seem to spend on there, obviously tweeting about every fucking thing they did, most of which was of little interest to anyone other than a fucking stalker. But primarily, because I think that 140 character limit is a killer… I like to fucking write. Read the comments on the article. They show that a lot of people haven’t actually worked out the value (if any) of Twitter in comparison to other forms of communication. I think it was best summed up by the comment of “mikethg,” who said… Everyone gets excited about the promise and value is somehow invented around that. Damned fucking right.
Phish and chips!
