So I’ve been on Twitter for a few months now, and I have to confess that I just don’t get it. I don’t. Don’t get me wrong. I see value in almost every social networking site. I wrote my Masters’ thesis about them. And I love Facebook. I love seeing pictures and seeing what’s new with friends and family. Even the games, the quizzes, and the silliness are fun and funny. It’s entertainment. With Twitter, I feel like it is too much work. I can’t find users, and I don’t understand how people can spend so much time on the website. I get updates on my phone and was getting so overwhelmed with them that I had to turn them off. I love getting the latest breaking news, but it doesn’t appear to be the most pertinent or at least it is filtered. I’m thinking more and more of cancelling my Twitter account.
So am I doing it wrong? What’s the fascination? How do others spend their time using Twitter?
