I use twitter because... I don't know tbh. It's fun when I hook it up to my phone because I have unlimited texting and then can just tweet about whatever is happening. I can vent or flip out or be super excited and nobody minds unless I'm spamming up timelines something awful. ^^; I can keep in touch with all my online friends easier since I'm out and about most of the time. It's just fabulous~

I only use Facebook for real life friends really close forum friends. Twitter is usually for my online friends and randoms XD

And it's nice being able to do this:

Alternative
June 2nd, 2011, 04:34 PM
I updated everyone. :D

Anyway, I think one reason why I like to use Twitter is because it's something where I can rant, or do anything and tell people what I'm doing without spamming Facebook, in which I would probably be flamed into oblivion if I mentioned anything which I would usually mention on Twitter. It also means I can follow people and see what they're doing, and their obsessions with World of Warcraft or something. :P

What do you tweet about?

June 2nd, 2011, 04:43 PM

Most of it is random gibberish but some times it can be small rants about random crap that bugs me. I'd also like to twitpic stuff but my damned limited data plan would probably crash and die if i tried uploading a picture through my 3G xD damn you orange!

I use Twitter because I have nothing better to do with my life other than rant on Twitter about things I'm doing, emotions, things I think are funny, and random song lyrics. Seriosuly, sometimes I have nothing to tweet about because I have no life. I also talk to people from PC, and I get to stalk Gerard Way, Frank Iero, Mikey Way, and Ray Toro. These are some reasons why I love it :)

Cherrim
June 5th, 2011, 06:20 PM
Alright, gotta join this. I'm @Cherrim on twitter. :D

Why do you use Twitter?
Twitter is essentially my Facebook. I'm almost always on it (it's the main reason I wanted a smartphone with 3G :x) and it's filled with both online and offline (IRL) friends. It's quick and easy to keep up with everyone and if I need to contact someone, I know in my groups that it's much faster to @ them than it is to email or catch on MSN. I've been using it actively since 2007 so I'm pretty hooked.

What do you tweet about?
I... tend to tweet about whatever I'm doing. I can get kind of annoying if I'm obsessed with something and have no one else to talk to about it. xD; Mostly my tweets are fandom-related, with a bit of RL "what i'm up to" sprinkled in. So expect a lot of fangirling if you add me. u_u;

When I had my Android phone I used TweetCaster. It was the best Android twitter app out there and I always recommend this app to my friends. On the computer, however, I used to like TweetDeck, but the whole "twitter API" thing made it less fun. So I stuck with the web instead until I find a more decent application.

Zeffy, the whole point of the apps is that you don't have to do that, and it makes life so much easier. Most of the time with apps also you only log in once and never have to log in again, which is always helpful. :)

Anyway, right now I'm using Echofon for Firefox. It's a great application and plug-in if you ask me. It's quick, easy and I can shorten links easily, which I learntonly a couple of days ago which I can do. Now that's always handy, especially when I'm trying to shorten huge links which I want to share with everyone. :D

I use the twitter app on my android phone for anything special like seeing what tweet got a reply thingy too. But mostly for viewing them on my phone i use Motoblur because its synced with my facebook feed and for actually tweeting i use the Motblur status update widget because it does both my facebook and twitter at the same time.

But on my computer i just have twitter bookmarked xD

I do prefer Twitter over the other programs. There's just something about it which just makes it so much easier to access than Facebook and the like. It's also a lot better to use Twitter just to do stuff with moreso internet friends, and not worry about anyone that I know irl knowing things which I tend to reveal online, because they all hate it or something.

Most of my online friends are on twitter and most of my offline friends are on twitter. The people I have on Facebook, I'm not all that close with. I can only think of one really good (offline) friend who won't get a twitter and only uses Facebook. :/ So I have no reason to use any other social networking sites. (To be honest, FB actually confuses the hell out of me. It's only recently, when I started using Tweetdeck on my phone to check FB, that it was simplified enough for me to bother with it. :P)

Alternative
June 18th, 2011, 10:04 PM
I don't find Facebook all that confusing, but Twitter does have the element of simplicity to it which is always nice. I only really use facebook nowadays to just see what offline friends are up to, which is either spamming those stupid games on there or complaining about something. "/

He told me he got mad during E3 because I tweeted a lot about it. Myself, along with another person he stalks follows were tweeting about it a lot, so he had to go through like, three refresh things (doesn't use a twitter client) on Twitter for it. xD;

I don't think I've ever used the txt feature of Twitter. It was too expensive back when I didn't have a texting plan and it turned out it was easier to just use the crappy mobile web browser on my phone. For a while I think I had direct messages send me a text as a quick way for online friends to get hold of me.

My main reason for getting a smartphone last year when I upgraded was so I could have a dedicated Twitter app. n_n

I never had the txt feature either. Back when I could access it from my phone though I didn't know anything about Echofon, and thought it was annoying that I could log in from my phone, and that would instantly log me out from the computer, so I stopped using it. My phone sucks for the internet anyway, I'd prefer to get some sort of smartphone to use Twitter on. :)

I've been using the txt feature for a long time now. To be honest, it's quick and useful. Twitpic also had a txt feature...you can snap a pic and MMS it via email. I find this easier than having to buy a data plan just to use twitter. xD

I did that too. :D Though now I use yfrog since for a while my new phone wouldn't upload to twitpic and then twitpic came out with new copyright info that said they assumed rights of any photo you upload so I sort of fell out of love with them. 8( I think they changed it after an uproar but oh well.

May I join? :D My Twitter username is TornZero (http://twitter.com/tornzero).

Why do you use Twitter?

It's easy to use; it's short, sweet and to the point; it has a nice, polished interface; the "short" part of "short, sweet and to the point" makes Twitter better for those who just want to get updated on things, unlike other social sites that are generally spammed with unnecessary information and "copy this into your profile if you ___".
While Twitter does suffer from people putting ads and sponsors in every now and then, it's always been great to me for nice, short conversations between me and people I follow/that follow me, and getting the updates I want and need.

On name changes, I've never had to change my username from TornZero (funny, eh? A name with "Zero" in it without and "X" at each end or in-between words; I really haven't seen many of those). I do have an alternate/backup on some sites under Xerorin, however, for sites that require you to make a different display name from usernames, and for sites where I don't want people constantly stalking me on TornZero.

For peopel who tweet a lot, it doesn't bother me, unless it's about pretty much nothing that we should care about (e.g. I'm taking a dump, I just finished taking a dump etc.). Sometimes the spammy tweets are interesting and something they do tick you off. One time during E3's Nintendo conference me and another guy spammed Twitter about the conference and it annoyed one of my friends, who follows me. I thought it was funny. :P

Why do you use Twitter? - @IanHerndon
I originally joined Twitter simply to hop on board to something new that I thought would eventually go mainstream and be a hot topic for a long time to come. Now it's actually part of my every day routine at work (that's right, I get paid to tweet lmao)

What do you tweet about?
I actually don't post super often (less than 600 as of today), but when I do it's typically something on an article I've read, replying to something someone else wrote about, or to share an experience I've had with a company I recently interacted with such as Domino's or T-Mobile. I'm not the type to post things like 'I just woke up.' or 'My back itches.' lol. I've got nothing wrong against people who do... I mean to each their own, I simply won't be following their tweets very often heh.

At work, my job five days a week is identifying online users who are talking about our brand. Whether it be positively, negatively, or just alongside another topic. One of my personal goals is to show users and our customers that we as a company are there for them, in the spaces they are, for anything they need. We reach out and engage users via our company's Twitter ID. As of right now we have thousands of employees and 2.4 million customers nationwide; I was fortunate enough to be the first ever employee to do what I'm doing right now, and am currently one of only six in the entire organization who represent our brand on Twitter the way we do.

Looks like I have 9 verified followers out of 3,998. Now what I'm curious about, is out of the 120million Twitter users, what overall ratio of that is verified? 1%? .001%?

September 18th, 2011, 08:04 PM
Hi! I'm @FalconsDrummer (http://twitter.com/falconsdrummer).

I started using Twitter because I really like the way it's supposed to work. Unfortunately, though, it hasn't worked out that well for me yet, but I haven't given up. None of my real life friends or family get it, so they don't bother trying it (or they try it, make a couple "I'm trying twitter wut is this lols" tweets and then quit). So now I'm trying to use it to meet new people instead. I want to use Twitter to meet and communicate with people, rather than just have one monologue of my thoughts. Not that that part isn't fun, too.

I generally just tweet about random things that cross my mind which I think are worth sharing. I tend to talk about interesting things I might be doing at school (I'm a music student), or just funny little sayings I hear in conversation.

I don't have many followers (25, and I follow 97), but that's fine with me. I've never intended to become some kind of celebrity or anything. Although I did try to use an alternate account where I remained more anonymous and tried to gain more followers (NOT with that "follow-for-follow" garbage, though). But, meh, I'd rather just be me. Anyway, hello!

TornZero
October 12th, 2011, 09:58 PM
Whoa! Almost dead! Not good.

So, let's start it back up with a question! Not sure if it's been asked before, but I'm asking it anyway!

How many of your followers/followees do you personally know in real life?

Out of both my followers and followees, I know only one personally. We're in the same school district, and I found out that she had a Twitter account, so I shared mine with her. However, there are definitely a few people I follow (one of them following me as well) that I would feel honored to ever meet.

zappyspiker
October 13th, 2011, 02:59 AM
How many of your followers/followees do you personally know in real life?

Just 2 lol, One is a friend from school and we're the only tech noobs who use it constantly. I've started to hear other people using it but ... their are something that should be kept online not offline for them to know.
The other person is Misheard Whisper/ Thomas. We met up about 2 months ago.

ash_pikachu_98
October 13th, 2011, 04:31 AM
How many of your followers/followees do you personally know in real life?

20-30 tops, and that's probably because Twitter looked through my email and facebook for people I've been in contact with who are also on Twitter. I use Facebook more-so for people I know in real-life, Twitter predominantly online only, and Google+ as sort of a mishmash of both.

Twitter fanclub? I'm so down. @scarizzle (http://twitter.com/scarizzle) here, what's up? :D

Why do you use Twitter?
At first, I kind of just hopped on the bandwagon, but I've kind of become addicted to it. XD; It's also been a great way for me to keep in touch with friends.

What do you tweet about?
Anything. Usually pretty trivial, everyday things, but I tweet about shows, music, and video games (largely Zelda these days, haha) as well. I also have a horrible habit of live-tweeting if I'm playing a video game (again, largely Zelda) or watching a TV show, sooo I'm sorry to my followers for the constant updating.

How many of your followers/followees do you personally know in real life?
Hmmm. Quite a few, actually. I follow a lot of my school friends on Twitter. I couldn't give you an exact number but maybe ten-ish?
