A month after the world freaked out when on June 21 Twitter was offline for a few hours, the site that many say is the natural replacement to Facebook has crashed again, forcing people to do the unbearable: turn off their computers, go outside, and interact with other living human beings.

Maybe...but I use it to custom stream financial news...put out by the outfits I care about...acting, as such, like a giant filter on typical MSM propaganda.  As well, it is a great tool for putting digs to your classic zombie portfolio managers making their typical mainstream BS recommendations.

So there is that...

That's pretty sad. It must be all of those unfulfilled extroverts who live vicariously through others and need constant floods of attention to feel good about themselves.

Anyone besides me noticed the silent takeover of web blogs?.

If you want to comment on 50-75% of any topic now, you either have agree to sign into Facebook, or Disscus(sp).

To me this is an ominous sign.

And to think that in ancient times the Sun was worshiped as the enabler of all things including no less than the promise of resurrection... now it is the oppressor... it wants to kill you, quick hide from the Sun! Those fools were in the dark and *now* we are all enlightened... what a joke.

If twitter was a significant technology, I might give a shit.

two people think twitter is actually "real software" .. uh.. it limits you to X number of characters.. is that ALL you're capable of expelling from your brains? 

Twitter.. you got suckered into thinking a technology that limits your expression of thought to a pathetic blurb was something exceptional.  LaW|_

If you had a twitter account, we would all know when you were in the garden. 


And when you were taking a shit.
