Everyone seems to be joining twitter recently, this last couple of weeks I have had lots of emails/newsletters from really diverse sources saying "follow us on twitter" or "we are now on twitter" or such like.

Twitter must have a very successful marketing team as I had not heard of them before this!

I guess I will just have to go and join up and see what the fuss is about!

I'm refusing to join it. I managed to escape from Facebook a while ago - but it wasn't easy. :lol:

I have an enormous 'allergy' to those sorts of communities although some good friends of mine belong to them - but when I did have a mobile phone I hardly ever took calls on it and only ever called out to say the train had been cancelled... I think I may be a hermit in fact! :roll:

I was forced into joining Facebook at knifepoint!! :lol:
I really didn't want to, and my older sister made me an account anyway. All I ever get on there is stupid things like:

- "[Insert-name-here] just compared you to some of his friends, click here to find out more!"
- "[Insert-name-here] took the "What Brand of Wholemeal Biscuit Are You?" quiz - click here to take it too!"

... I mean, honestly... :evil:

I found it all a bit crap really joined after one of my mates who had moved away down South kept on at me to join and a few ex colleagues were there as well,got a bit fed up with total strangers e-mailing requesting do you want to be my friend (pee offski). :twisted: lasted about a week and deleted the account. :)

I registered for FB but I never used it :sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming to be too contactable (if that makes sense) If my friends want to swap pics then I'd rather do it over a nice cuppa :D

You can never fully delete your Facebook account though - that really annoyed me when I found out. I signed up, couldn't work out what the fuss was about and then removed all my info but couldn't delete my account. I have been thinking of just putting a link to my website there and leaving it at that.

I joined Twitter (blame terryandrob) and now that I have installed "Twitterfox" (a plugin for the firefox web browser) I am really enjoying it. The sort of twitters I am following makes it a bit like a news feed, saves me from trawling the web - let someone else do it and tell me about it!

Twitter, Facebook, MySpace etc etc are really good for networking/raising profiles/marketing even if you don't get into the chat side of it. I have a new site going up soonish and we'll be putting some shameless plugs on there - just 'cos I don't like it don't mean people who like similar stuff to me don't use it. Get the word out... :twisted:
