People are able to post anything they want on the website, and i think that people like that they can do that. No, i am not using Twitter. I don't use it honestly because i didn't even know it exsited. Yeah, i think just like Myspace it will get very popular and then after awhile no one will use it and it will die out.

People are able to write down anything they want. Like doctors can use it for patient informations. Buisness owner people can use it for buisness. No, I am not using Twitter, because I have never heard of it. No, because hardly anybody knows about it and it's not fun to many people.

Twitter is a FAD

Post  Tsouthers on Tue Oct 28, 2008 11:21 am

Twitter, much like Myspace, Facebook, and Xanga, is a fad (popular now, but will eventually become overrated). Many will be excited about the arrival of this new form of networking, but after a while it will "twitter" down to only a few as compared to the amount of people involved in it now.....(p.s.... pun intended Smile )

I dont use twitter. I believe all websites used for the same perpous of twitter are useless and a waiste of time. They cause drama and eventualy become so over popular and in controll that they think they can change the way americans think by brainwashing them, telling them whats cool whats good whats hot whats not..etc... The popluarity of twitter will most likely continue.

I haven't had any experiences with Twitter yet, and I don't have any specific plans to do so in the near future. It's another craze spun off of the already massive social networks such as, perhaps, MySpace and Youtube. At this juncture, it is really hard to say whether or not it will be able to retain its popularity. It may just be a fad (as previously mentioned by another user) and it may be the next big thing, but we're not to the juncture where we can make any solid statements yet. Only time will tell. I'm sure there were people who thought that perhaps cellphones were a fad when they came out or even the internet. So, to concisely state my opinion, I believe that this could grow more popular due to everyone's social desires, but don't hold your breath because it could after all just be a fad.

I've never heard of it, but its just another Myspace (or wanna be Myspace). Its not like we need anymore of them. Shocked No, I don't use it and I probaby never will. People made it just to find away to make a quick buck with ads and sponsers, or they were bored.

Technology has caused it. I have never seen it before so, I do not think it is a craze. I don't use it either.

I agree with "Tsouthers." Twitter is popular now, but it's only a matter of time until it gets overrated and no one uses it anymore.

Well, it's not necessarily a "Twitter craze." I've never heard of it, and from what I've read not many others have either (from our Computer Programming class anyways.) Since I haven't heard of it.. Obviously I am not using it. I'm not using it because it's just another social network to meet people and stuff, and I'm not really interested in meeting people online. It might be fun if more people used it that I knew, but so far I know no one that uses it. Popularity wise I think that Twitter will grow more as long as their current users are active and what not. The reason it will grow mainly being that all social networking sites are usually successful if they have enough effort put into them. A great example of this would be Myspace or Facebook, they are both very popular social networking websites.

What has caused the Twitter craze? You are able to type ANYTHING you want. It's good advertising. It could also be used as a business place in a way.

Are you using Twitter? I am not using Twitter.
Why or why not? I'm not using Twitter because i loathe online forums, if i wanna talk to someone or answer a question, i'd just as soon walk up to them , or write it down.

Do you think the popularity of Twitter will continue? probably not. It's apparent that not very people
Why or why not? know of twitter.

Well, it is not exactly a craze. But technology started it. No, I am not using Twitter. Yeah, I think it will continue. Because other websites like this start out small and they grow. Just like Myspace™.

Twitter Craze

Post  JMcKelvy on Fri Oct 31, 2008 7:59 pm

Twitter is becoming popular because it is easy to use as a social network and for business purposes. i dont use it because i dont have time for social networking on the computer and i didnt know about it. it will probably get more popular as more people find out about it.

Twitter Craze

Post  Rbarnfield on Mon Nov 03, 2008 2:50 pm

Many people have started social networking with MySpace. Then Facebook was introduced. Some MySpace users decided to make a Facebook account. I think that having several social networking websites is extremely stupid. MySpace was pretty much the first to become popular. It is pointless to have Twitter because most people already have MySpace.

Twitter Goes Mainstream

Post  Drightnowar on Mon Nov 03, 2008 3:15 pm

The twitter isnt very good. I just went and tried it and i think that is a lame attempt to be as popular as facebook or myspace. I dont think that its worth anyones time to be honest. So, the twitter is quite lame.

Yeah, eventually it gets boring and lose it's popularity. I've never even heard of twitter and it seems like theres nothing interesting on it. So I won't be using it.

I don't feel that there is a twitter craze, but that could just be me. I personally don't use twitter i have never even heard of it. The site may be popular in the future but I don't think that it will become popular soon.
