    Wow, quite a feat. You’ve managed to give Twitter a little bit of value, such that it’s not completely 100% worthless. ;-)

    Mind you, it’s not enough to get me to reactivate my Twitter account.

    RE: Kary L. Krismer @ 1 – I agree 100%. There lots of my colleagues in high tech who aren’t on the Twitter bandwagon. Tim, I’ll just keep getting updates via the RSS feed!

    Every time I hear “Twitter” I think of Conan’s “Twitter Tracker.”

    RE: David McManus @ 2 – I am constantly ridiculed by my colleagues for my ‘burner’ prepaid cellphone. Hey, I don’t yak much, so it ends up costing about $5/month. Sure beats $50/month. I also don’t get the Twitter thing. I guess I am reaching the ‘get off my lawn’ years though.

    Count me in as another old fart who doesn’t “get” Twitter…But looking forward to The Tim’s Tweets, things like “Houses cost 2 much”, ” I’m brushing my teeth”, and ” Case-Schiller Rox”.

    RE: The Tim @ 5 – I think that was from the first week of his version of the Tonight Show.

    Don’t Flush Twitter Down the . . ..”

    Damn is Conan is funny. I tried Twitter and found I have absolutely no use for it. I really don’t care what people are doing at any given moment. It’s like a text version of a reality show. No thanks. Put me in the “get off my lawn” camp, I guess.

    When I first signed up for Twitter (two years ago) my “twitter page” just sat with something along the lines of “testing twitter out”. I had no idea what to do with it–I thought it was strange…I just didn’t “get it”. It wasn’t until I started to see a use for it by posting rate quotes that a light bulb went off…I’ve since become a Twitter-junkie and will write stuff hopefully better than what’s on Conan’s video.

    I actually will learn about news events before it airs on the tv or radio. It’s pretty amazing.

    I’m happy to see Seattle Bubble and Twitter and, TheTim, I hope you’ll use it to share when you have a new post or maybe if there’s a heated debate going on it the forums.

    There have been general topic web forums that have done that for years–but they have a lot of junk between the news.

    RE: Kary L. Krismer @ 11 – similar to blogs…. you have to be careful and verify what you’re reading. ;)
