I prefer "Accept progress and go forward or stand still and get left behind"
But its also a good idea to know the difference between progress and change.
There is a saying that if you do not pay for a product, you are the product.  What do Twitter and their like get out of it?

In answer to Martin's original question -

http://mashable.com/guidebook/twitter/

Many more via google

I keep my account protected so only those that I choose can see my tweets ( is there a bird in here?) , necessary in order to stay in contact with my teenage daughters as I won't use FaceBook.   >>:-(

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 wife's 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.

Dave a young guy like you is still in short pants. O0 O0
At least as a young whipper snapper you have learnt some good sense so you will reach a ripe old age :-)) :-))

 don't think we can avoid it,so whatever you do they will still find out,Ray <:( <:(

A little too late to correct Mum, I think.
Anyway, the actual subject of her remark was a scab over a nasty knee wound - I simply quoted her as it seemed appropriate also in these circumstances.
Ref Twitter, suit yourself. I really couldn't care less.

I can't lay claim to having made this up but it sumarises the whole social media scene for me, "IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE, YouTube,Twitter & FaceBook will merge to form one giant, idiotic, super-sized time wasting, non-productive, time-stealing, mind-dumbing, do-not-need-to-know website called YouTwitFace.

Twitter = the Twit sitting behind you in the movies that won't shut up.

Only there are millions of them.  %)

I saw that happen in a cinema a couple of months back, the light from the phone popping
up every few minutes:

"WILL YOU TURN THAT PHONE OFF SO I CAN ENJOY THE FILM PLEASE!!"


Quality!     :-))

Substitute the 'i' in Twitter for an 'a' and the name will be nearer the mark...

I would have thought it impossible to insult
any of the leading conservadroids or demo cretins
as they don't take any notice of the wishes of the
voters. They just carry on as they like.
