    Not a good reason!

    Luddites of the world arise!

    I’ve always envied other people who have much greater skill with language than I do. The disappointment of having thoughts that blaze and flame across my mind that, when translated onto the page, fizzle and flicker under scrutiny. …and back on track; FaceBook I understand. It is a useful and easy way to keep in touch with friends flung far and wide across the globe. Twitter I don’t get - why communicate in truncated blurts which, more often than not, come out as pointless brain farts???

    It’s not as if something longer than 140 characters can be a total masterpiece. FB is full of a lot of brainfarts, after all. ;)

    Twitter is pointless brain farts? I love it—-will pass that on to my twittering-all-the-time granddaughter. People who tweet all the time are losing their social skills with those present (and being ignored).

    seems like a good reason to me!

    People tweeting I don’t mind except when their driving, ‘cause then you cross into my line. I ride a motorcycle as my main form of transportation and with the proper gear I stand a reasonable chance with most incidents, but being smacked into by a car is not one I will likely survive. So to paraphrase “woodsy owl”..Give a peep and don’t tweet when you are driving.

    bmwk12ltc: never mind the twitting behind the wheel… have you noticed how many new cars are coming out with big video screens in the middle of the dash, for controlling the various entertainment and comfort systems? In some new cars you have to take your eyes and one hand off the wheel and go through a series of interactive menus just to change the station on the radio. I think it’s a nefarious plot by the auto industry to boost sales by making people wreck their cars more often.

    What is the difference between a Luddite and a Technophobe and can I be both?

    For all you fellow travelers who are sick of Facebook/Twitter, you may be interested in this:

    My good friend, Elayne Boosler, has created a great video, “Facebook is a Clocksucker”. Click on that on the homepage. Then go the store section and buy a T-shirt of two. Proceeds go to animal rescue.

    Actually had Biz Stone, the co-founder of twitter come speak at my college. While sure, the majority of the stuff on there is completely asinine, twitter DOES provide a great resource for organizing people very quickly in real time. It’s been used to positive effects in places like Iran during their elections, and I’m sure plenty of other, less politically charged events as well. Plus, every tweet is documented at the Library of Congress, so we’re going to have an (albeit probably terrifying) extensive documentation of this generations thoughts and trends.

    I am somewhere in the middle of the great wide swath between the Luddites and the technology early adopters. I have been programming mainframe computers for over 30 years for business applications but cannot understand much less get into any of the social media stuff. I have a Facebook account. I log in about once a month or so. And almost everything I have seen from Twitter has seemed asnine or pointless (or am I being redundant?). And I think Wiley’s friend, the hilarious Elayne Boosler, has nailed it calling Facebook (and all its kin) Clocksuckers!

    BTW, if you missed it, check out Fox Trot from yesterday for another example of the dangerous addictive quality of these social media applications.

    Good one, Wiley and some great comments. I couldn’t add a thing that isn’t already here.

    I love you Wiley… and I’m not really aiming this at you specifically… <..rant..> I get that there are people that don’t like FB and Twitter. But I just don’t get why the folks that don’t like it are usually so vehemently vocal about the evils of it. Overall… FB has little affect on the non-users. If you don’t like it, don’t mess with it.

    I don’t understand why the non-fb’ers can’t just back off and let the people enjoy the clocksucking if they want it. :)

    For me, I don’t really get Twitter. But other than the tweeting-while-driving issue… it doesn’t affect me. So, I have no desire to poo on the tweeters parade.

    Mirth, it kinda sounds like the same sort of things religions get from atheists.
