I agree with the statements of deforest and rockin123 that twitter is a total waste of time. I think Facebook is too. I do not use twitter or Facebook, but I have invested in both. The reason is I think there are are lot of people with lots of time on their hands, who wants to keep themselves occupied. This gives them an avenue to gossip and read gossip. Look at all the people who read National Enquirer, follow Kim Kardashian and were abducted by Aliens. I am just trying to take advantage of the trend in people's behavior.
