It took me an awfully long time to jump on the Twitter bandwagon. If I had waited any longer, I’d have had to catch a train instead. I followed my friends and a few celebrities (David Lynch, for example). I quickly found that Mr. Lynch had much to say and that I wasn’t interested in a good deal of it. I was more frequently (though by no means regularly) interested in what my friends had to say, but most of them use programs like Digsby to send identical messages through Facebook, making Twitter completely useless for me. (I don’t kid myself that anyone actually cares what I write there.) I understand that many people enjoy hearing frivolous comments from their favorite celebrities and politicians, but I’d rather read their ideas in paragraph form. Besides, why follow David Lynch on Twitter when I can follow him — and his hair — on Facebook?
