I was asked the other day what the point of twitter was. I struggled to describe what the concept was and why someone would use it. The only argument I could come up with was “Stephen Fry uses it!”
My friend was very perplexed by it as she read somewhere that ‘every student uses it’ and she didn’t know of any of her friends in her Uni circle that did use it.
I do use it for a project I am working on, but only as way of keeping my website updated with relevant information. I suppose it can be a passive way of ‘spamming’ a group of people (often complete strangers). However, even for a tech-addict like me, I do draw the line at twittering about when you are going to have a cup of tea or take a leak. Because frankly, who cares?
