    Are you on it?

    Do you use it much?

    I have had an account for over 2 years but never really used it - I just tweeted tonight after a friend helped me through it!! :blush:

    Not interested ...or Facebook...just sites used by undercover state departments to build dossiers on the peasants...KGB would have loved 'em.

    I love twitter...I've made over 20,000 tweets:blushing:. I use to think it was only for people with celebrity-itus but its not lol. I've found it the best place for finding out the latest info on things I care about, like wildlife & the environment & the best place for finding like minded people:)

    Nah i've had an account for ages but honestly cannot see the point of it at all. i dont for one second assume that anyone would be remotely interesting in anything i had to tweet, and im not really interested in hearing what someone else had for lunch either.

    Never used it, have no intention to get it. I can see why it is useful for companies, organisations, bands and celebrities etc, but I cannot fathom why your average Joe would want to spend their days mass publishing mundane details of their everyday lives.

    I did give in and get Facebook, as it's the most reliable way to get regular updates from some people, but I don't make regular updates myself.

    I have an account but only really follow celebs, bands and TV programmes as it gives info about tour dates etc...
    My dog has an account ( just for fun) and he has way more followers than me!

    I have an account but I'm more of a reader than a tweeter.

    I have an account but I don't actually tweet. I just follow sites that I am interested in - and then it acts as my own tailor made news service. I find it a really handy tool for keeping me informed.

    I use it but I found it took me a while to get the hang of initially. It's really useful for breaking news. My own tweets aren't too interesting, I usually just post pics of my pets.

    If anyone wants to follow me i'm @Jae82 :)

    I use it lots, but not as often as I used to due to time. I don't follow many celebs, I did have a conversation with Rav Wilding about the price of ovens :lol:

    I find it really good for keeping up to date with things that interest me, local news and breaking news.

    The times I enjoy it most is when there is a big event, during the Olympics it was great, it was like watching it with a group of mate and at times I was in tears of laughter.

    I have one too. But I only ever use it to see what celebs from my favourite shows are appearing in, Bands that I like where they are playing next, football players I like... Stuff like that really.
