It's not a bad thing, because mainstream users have discovered it. I'm not very big on Twitter, but I think it's usefulness is increasing with the more people that use it.
Time to say goodbye to twitter as we know it.
Please allow me to admit that I have used twitter, and have seen its advantages, but it has been doomed by its very creators.
Twitter is going to become the next pop culture infectious disease. I am advising you and your listeners to immunize your selves from this sophomoric application before it's to late.
Perhaps my lead in was a little juvenile and harsh to the developers of twitter. I wish them all a wonderful and happy life. However, what they created was the embryonic stage of a soon to be monster of useless information.
The tech community started feeding this embryo, nurturing it, observing its growth from a little baby into a small child. Techies pushed and pushed and the child grew bigger, it started sneaking out of the tech house. Stealing the family car and driving through bad neighborhoods. Now, all the tech community can do is jump in the backseat of the car it used to own, and helplessly watch as Twitter, the out of control adolescent speeds into the slums of hollywood and politics.
The people that were in control of twitter, instead of pay for its treatment and support its mental well-being, will try to sell it. Twitter will resent his former handlers for this lack of respect and then, the once happy family of twitter and the tech community will be no more.
Then it will become like an alternate reality of 1985 and using twitter would be like Marty McFly gambling at Biff's Pleasure Paradise:
Recommended profiles will soon be Fox News, and Cialis.
Your tweets that include the words 'little,' 'small,' 'tiny,' will soon be responded to by male enhancement spam, and tweets with 'broke,' 'afford,' or 'amount' will be met with credit report links.
I say to you buzz town, be ready and do not go down with this ship.
