    Could that company have picked a better name for their product. Just sounds vulgar?

    Anyone into "Twittering'?

    Don't know what the heck Twitter is and don't care either. It sounds like another attempt to get people to spend more money so you aren't "outdated". I'll just stick with my 11 year old computer and my outdated Windows 98! [​IMG]



    Until it crashes, of course...[​IMG]

    I thought you people were educated and could use dictionaries and other writing tools to understand the english language.

    I think we need to do a weekly english lesson where we learn to spell and use a new word or set of words. [​IMG]

    twitter - twit⋅ter   /ˈtwɪtər/

    –verb (used without object)

    to talk lightly and rapidly, esp. of trivial matters; chatter.

    Twitter would therefore be trivial internet chatter.​

    I call it neurotic networking. People who are so scattered attentionwise they constantly have to share what they're doing at the moment, and millions of 'Twits' out there with nothing better to do than to read it. Facebook is bad enough (yes, I am on Facebook) but I'll be a Twit when [​IMG]

    I'm on Facebook too. It's almost as addictive as BYC but gets old quick.
