It's our rarest poster russian iha. I don't know. But who fucking cares, twitter is the most worthless idea ever to emerge from the internet.

Worthless, but still inevitable. It made blogging look so 2004.

Twitter is ok if you don't use it to inform the world everytime you wipe your ass. BIlly isn't starting off well, though.

it really is. nothing can make me even think of registering for an account. why do people find the need to twitter every 15 minutes about what they ate and the crap they just took. pointless updates after pointless updates. i had the misfortune of clicking on ashton kutchers twitter and apparently he and his wife are the most followed on there...i really can't see why, the only thing i got from looking at their twitters is that they are terribly uninteresting people.

isn't it just? it's ridiculous that we've moved into a blogging era that actually discourages forming complete sentences and thoughts by having letter restrictions. this is what makes twitter annoying, it's just a constant stream of brief mundane events shared with the whole world.

Well, before registering I saw twitter as some TV set. You sit watching useless meaningless blah, just killing time.

However, I formed a small, but solid following list of people who post 1 or 2 times a day, and these are not some random ass wipe comments. I think anyone can use any communication tool with purpose, saying "twitter sucks" is similiar to saying "blogs suck" or "phone sucks". It's just the way you use it.

I still agree - that 140 char quote is really restricting, though we could see internet coming to these (I mean really, does some random 19yr old girl next door really needs reading LiveJournal at least?)

i don't hate it. i certainly can see the potential of twitter, it's just that very few people actually make use of it. i prefer the blog format because, for the most part, they are usually well written and not posted so frivolously.

He must have taken "Billy" from some other twitter.. I guess he didn't want people to confuse him with the BC twitter imposter. Anyway, now he can twitter to Tila late at night to keep her from offing herself (or egg her on).. tune in Saturday

He could've paid for it. Still a jerk though.

Or do you all think this type of ego thinking will just cause us(him and I) to collide and bump heads? I think he needs to simmer down ego!

My friend just said he is smarter and more talented than I, but that I am more fearless than he, so that makes us an equal. Is this a match?

"smarter and more talented"... ummm, so like billy to say that and he was using twitter around the same time as 10 hours ago. Um, interesting.
