I 'signed up' for Twitter a while back, then found out it was just for getting reams of short text messages from famous people and business ads.  You have to 'follow' someone or something, so not exactly a two way conversation.
 
I have also lost interest in Facebook as it became swamped by online game scores and promotional ads. 
 
For an online experience of real interest and content you can't beat Mayhem !

Don't do Twitter, don't do Facebook, don't have a mobile phone. My wife and two young boys have all these things and there own computers as well. I'm typing this in on my wifes computer at the moment. Call me old ( 51 ) but i have seen all these fad's come and go, can't believe they actually made a film about Facebook {-) .................happy as i  am!!!!!!   Regards, Dave.

To WHOM, for goodness' sakes? Surely not the Twitterati? Do we need Steven Fry or Jonathan Agnew to pitch up? Will Lady Gaga do us a turn with her tranny under the roof of Mrs Mayhem's gazebo? Are we to be renamed Madonna's Modelboat Mayhem after her well-rehearsed Dancing-on-Water routine with five steaming Springers?  God Forbid - even the Prime Minister is one of Them!!

DM got there first but - do you really want the kind of people who are attracted by twitter?  Can't say that I would admit to recognizing any of the names that he seems familiar with, but I assume that they are some kind of passing "celebrity"?

My sister has both Facebook and Twitter... She has lost all art of conversation... Just sits on the sofa on her phone, facebooking someone she hasn't seen in ages (or last night), and it even managed to break her friendships with one of her best friends...  {:-{ 
 
I would not reccomend at ALL!  O0

Great idea Martin :-))

Most forums use Twitter for reasons such as this to publicise events, and also if there's a problem with the forum it's easy to get information out to the members.

Maybe a bit late for Mayhem, but is emailing boat-clubs, models shops and associated websites now considered 'old-fashioned' or no longer viable?

Certainly not, but I see no reason not to use social media as a messaging tool, along with email and any other means of communication.
