I was advised to take out a Twitter account just to make sure no one else took one out in my name, insurance against becoming rich and famous one day. I took the advice, had a look at the site while I was there. I'm hoping someone can now explain what it actually does?
I've had a myspace site for a while now. Musicians used to send off dozens of packages, cd, biography, photo, with padded envelopes and stamps it wasn't cheap. On myspace I can run ten songs at a time, change them at will, load as many photos as I want, post a bio, send the address to a million potential employers at no cost. Why wouldn't I have one? What does Twitter do?
Facebook appears to be full of teenage girls saying not much, good luck to them, but Twitter has legitimate organizations paying staff to send little notes to the web. Why? Who reads them, and what do those people do once they have read them? What do the tweets do?
What do the tweetees get out of it? What do the receivers of tweeting get? What's in ti for me?
I'm serious people, someone tell me what the fuck Twitter does? I think it is the emperor of websites, parading around with no clothes, eventually everyone will notice.
