The third time giving Twitter an honest go didn't seem to be the charm. So I deleted my account and discarded my bookmark this morning.
You have my permission to do so as well, guilt free.
Basically Twitter just came down to too much noise; too little value. Yes, there were nuggets of information, but sorting through the "I had Raisin Bran for breakfast" and "Boy, is it humid!" and "I just posted on my blog" tweets to find them just wasn't worth it. My requests for information went unanswered. I did find a disturbing sort of pleasure in whacking people who posted inane comments by "unfollowing' them. I'll miss that.
My time spent Twittering I will now spend on reading books. Or watching movie previews on Hulu.
Now on my list of "stuff I just don't do:
- Shopping Cragislist
- Selling on E-Bay
But Facebook is sort of growing on me...
