I dislike: Twitter

Maybe I am just old-fashioned, but I have no interest in people telling me when they have to take a dump, where they aquired their latest STD or what they had for dinner. I especially don’t care for information like that, if it is written IM-style. Let’s open the frontpage and see what people write:

  • Waiting for lunch from my sweet wife
  • I’m hungry and I’m too lazy to make something to eat!!!
  • realised after several minutes that the Orb CD I’m listening to is jumping and it’s not supposed to sound like this…
  • boring people on twitter.
  • lovin twittervision. can i waste more time

That would be hard. I know, I’ve got to much free time on my hand (otherwise you wouldn’t read this), but “twittering”?

Oh, and just do prove what a digital neanderthal I am: I also don’t like SMS. You want to tell me something? Give me a call or even better - send me an email. That way I don’t have to waste my time with monotonous chit-chat.

Twitter doesn’t even feel new to me at all.. it feels like old-school blogging. Like when most bloggers were crazy cat ladies talking about the funny stuff their cats did. Except now they’re ‘twittering’. What’s the difference, exactly?

They used to blog it, when the cat broke a vase. Now they follow the cat around the whole day, waiting for it to do something they can twitter about, while describing how they wait.

Haha good analogy. Someone should make a cartoon out of that. Where’s Hugh from gaping void when you need him?
