I never saw the point of Twitter. The idea always annoyed me.

I don't. Is it like Facebook but only status updates instead?

I have a twitter account (kevin_burns) but only update haphazardly. I'm in charge of the Twitter account for the folks I worth for tho.

It's fine as a supplemental social networking platform, I don't like moves to turn it into a primary tho.

I checked it out and thought it was pretty vapid. I like what the Web has given us in terms of information sharing but I hate what it has done to the English language.

I was assaulted by goons yelling "Hizzin out" over and over. BeanCorp International can expect to hear from my lawyers in a multi-million dollar civil suit.

I don't see the point of twitter. Although, I know of a lot of writers/agents/editors who twitter.

I feel old for not seeing the point of it. Either that, or I am right.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
