To be fair, that's kind of like making a judgement about all computer games by playing Superman 64 with a knackered controller on a dodgy tele.
Good comeback with a slice of Retro Gaming humour.

Touché.

Yeah, Twitter isn't for everyone, I wasn't sure about it at first but once you ditch anyone that Tweets EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of their mundane lives & follow only people you care about, entertain, interest or inform you then it can become a really useful tool & a bit of fun to boot.

Exactly. Funny that a lot of people (not on here, I add) who have never used seem to think very strongly that it's pointless. How would they know??

I never bothered becoming a twit, I used LinkedIn once and Ive got the usual Facebook account (doesnt use my actual name) along with the now defunct MySpace and Bebo accounts.

Im not a naturally sociable person so apart from the occasional games to be found on social sites I tend to not really bother unless Im in need of advice with something Im repairing.

I couldnt tell you as I havent used either in years, only way to find out would be to search the URL and see if it works.

I think MySpace tends to be used by arty-types who can showcase their work (music etc etc). So it's less a generic social scene, more a way to promote your work to like-minded people. So I read anyway!!

Linkedin is really good, had a fair few projects off people i used to work with or from people who told others about me. Its becoming 'slightly' like Facebook, had a few requests from my mates and others on Linked in which i didnt add, just wanted to ramp up the people they know.

I do love twitter for getting headlines about stuff i'm interested in, i never post on twitter though. Just use it for information, dont really care what some stranger i've never met had for breakfast or what he got whilst shopping in town on saturday etc !

MySpace is still running, and running out of money...

Twitter is great, won a couple of competitions on it. @merman1974
