Twitter! For goodness sake...

The home page of Twitter's website states that "Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: 'What are you doing'?"

I have friends, or should I say acquaintances, who twitter. The whole time I'm with them they keep up a constant buzz of twitter. It's all rubbish and absolutely not worth listening to so I tune it out.

So why on earth would anyone want to exchange quick, frequent messages about what they're doing? Who cares what they're doing? Who cares that 'the dog's just having a poo' or 'I'm having a coffee'? If you want a conversation then have a proper one. If you want to have it on the internet then start a blog or join a group. If you want to talk to your family why not pick up the phone? If you want to talk to your co-workers then just shout across the office.

But for god's sake don't twitter!
