    I dont have a twitter because I didnt know I knew anyone on it who could tell me why I should.
    Is it awesome? a couple of the youtubers I follow have them I think (it gets mentioned now and again by one of them) but I dont want to sign up for something just to "stalk" internet celebrities.

    I have Twitter (sounds like an illness!) but I rarely use it. I don't really get the whole point of it. I'm not sure how you get people to 'follow' you and I never have much interesting to say anyway!

    I think I'm @emizzy but I'm not sure how I find out for definite.

    I do mostly use it for stalking the odd celebrity, but it's also good as a springboard for finding out bigger stuff. If Twitter's starting to go crazy over something, then it usually leads me to go off and find out about it. Keeps me up to date with the interwebz. Also love it when big political things happen. It gets so hilarious.

    Mouse, that is indeed your name on there!

    I firmly believe that Twitter is the result of a Chinese conspiracy to bring about the fall of Western civilisation. When it happens, don't say you weren't warned.

    It's not that bad.

    I'm just having a conversation with Piers Morgan and Lord Sugar about the Toon's spanking of Man Utd:eek:

    I don't tweet, I don't Facebook, how come I don't feel like I'm losing something from my life?

    it's definitely... more-ish. a good thing i am currently unable to access the interwebz at work, else i'd never get any writing done at all. nice to be able to catch up with people i met at AltFiction; also a good tool - how to learn to rant in public in less than 140 characters...

    It did take a while to get used to the whole 140 characters. Annoyingly short. I'm too verbose.

    I'm too caught by the Facebook to extract myself, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who didn't have it now.

    Oh, duh, and I'm @FacetiousRemark.

    Ah yes but what you do is include a shortened link to your blog.

    Here's mine - http://bit.ly/w6fhiF and you can rant for pages and pages:):eek:

    Forgot @Perpetual_Man Sorry mate...

    Apparenly I'm joz1812 and I have 2 followers. Refreshingly I know them both; go on then, I'll join in. Can we get a group together all those techies to save us all having to type in the names. A Chrons click and we're all following or is this not possible.

    I'll hold fire on adding them, then; now I suppose at some stage I should post a comment. But what to say; my life is very, very boring....

    140 Characters should come easily then :)

    I'm assuming that's not a cast list, btw ;)
