I got bored of Twitter and it is just... there. I lurk but don't really post tweet.

    Twitter is the only one I use these days. Facebook was annoying. Consisted mostly of people posting tons of pictures to make themselves seem more interesting. At least with Twitter you have to click to see the picture. And less people know I even have a Twitter, so that's a plus.

      I don't like Twitter at all... I can't get the point of it. I've used it once or twice, but that's all. Even the design of the site is annoying.
      I personnally prefer Facebook or Tumblr.

        Twitter is good for finding out what celebrities get up to in their spare time. Other than that there is no point whatsoever. I'll just stick to Facebook for talking to friends etc.

        This was why I joined twitter, and now I follow about 2 celebrities - against 90 odd 'normal' people.

        I love twitter for discussing news/tv shows/random things. Normally interesting stuff is on twitter before any proper news sites and people are gossiping away.

        I think it's fun, but I guess I have had it for 4-5 years and now follow many people who I 'know' reasonably well. I follow very few RL friends on there, but there are a few.

        I only follow people I know n_n Which is basically like an off-site PC to me tbh where I can just spam my thoughts which is of great use considering I'd be driving other people crazy with them otherwise lmao. I've been following the shooting trends, though, since I like to see the news about it on there.

        Most of the people I follow (And those that follow me) are PC members. And Nica put it best, it's like an off-site PC.

        I used to be really active on Twitter lol and would follow people on forums I visited. I originally joined just to follow others and ended up tweeting myself about random stuff mostly having to do with Pokemon. My activity there gradually declined as people started unfollowing me and I lost interest in tweeting. Now, I don't even log in there most days, I just lost so much interest in it.

          I get a lot of news from Twitter, as I mainly follow film/TV critics/commentators. About 80% of the people I follow are those, and the other 20% are PC people. It's a nice balance, to be honest.

            I only follow a few bands I really like and certain people I know. It's pretty rad and fairly clutter free.

            And oh my god this week is going to be busy after today. I can't wait.

            I used twitter back when barely anyone knew it existed, pre-Ashton Kutcher. Then I forgot my password and never cared enough to sign back on after that. I've updated only a few times this year.

            I usually use Facebook, Tumblr, and LiveJournal the most. I get my news from news sites instead.

            I've never bothered with Twitter. It's all Facebook (and PC) for me.

            I never got into Twitter at all, and Tumblr's mostly there for me to browse through funny or nice pictures. :D; Never got into Facebook, either. Made one a few years ago since I felt like I should keep up with the "trends" but ended up never using it and deleting.

              The thing I dislike about Tumblr is that I don't see a lot of people (friends anyway) use it for it's sole purpose which is to blog and update on stuff whether it be art, game development, life, etc. They just reblog a bunch of cat photos and other high-def photos. ಠ_ಠ

                People seem to be obsessed with Instagram. I don't really see the appeal.

                I honestly don't know if I can handle not sleeping anymore. It's taking its toll.

                I don't like taking a picture, only to have it tinted and a random boarder around it, so I don't see the appeal as well.

                  I use Instagram frequently, typically when I'm bored and take random pictures of things. Instagram makes them prettier. And yeah, the HDR option on my phone is pretty awesome, even though it just makes everything brighter rather than actually changing anything.

                    Dude, I've got like an hour most left in me before I'm heading to bed (whether I like it or not). I feel like I got a relatively decent amount of stuff done today without any sleep, though. Checked apartment listings and such and took our kitten to the vet.

                    I'd hate it if my dog was ill for whatever reason and had to go to the vet. She's too lovely and stuff for that sort of thing! We've actually been pretty lucky with her so far - no real issues at all and she's got a generally lovely nature. Still, only 6 years old, so that could all change at some point.

                    It's not that my cat is sick, but she needs a check up, though she does have a respiratory thing I need to get checked out. She tends to sneeze a lot and things like that. She's a very friendly kitty but very shy, though likes attention, she really dosen't like it when there are no people are around.
