Random Factoid #258

12 04 2010

Recently, I’ve been reading quite a bit on how to better reach people with my blog.  A constant suggestion is the use of social networking.

But here’s my thing: I hate Twitter and I will NEVER get one.  Ever.

Anyone who knows me or reads me is surely aware that I am a massive Facebook-er.  So why am I so opposed to Twitter?  Here’s my reason.

My least favorite part of Facebook is the status update.  I’m sorry, but I don’t want to know what you are doing at all times of the day.  If I do, I will go look at your profile.  So why on earth would I want to commit to Twitter, which is basically ONLY status updates.  Unless you are Jason Reitman, who fascinates me, I don’t want to know every little thought that pops into your head.

So, I will never get a personal (or blogging) Twitter.  You will NEVER catch me Tweeting.

I have a Twitter.
I used to check it.
Then I started following Kevin Smith.
Then he flooded my Twitter account with limitless (and quite banal) updates.
I still have a Twitter.
I don’t check it anymore.

Marshall – I agree with you.
I have a Twitter account…but don’t “get it”.
I only check to see if anyone has written about VoiceQuilt.

Yeah, I recently stopped using it since it was pretty pointless. I just have it to read tweets from Kevin Smith, Tom Hanks, Conan O’Brien, Jon Favreau, and other celebrities.

Kevin Smith. I wish he would just try to make a decent movie instead of telling the world about every minute of his life.
