A little while ago I blogged about the fact that I thought Twitter and its ilk was a waste of time. Having given in and created a Twitter account, pretty much because most of my peers had, like the good sheep that I am I tweeted a few times but still was unconvinced as to its value in the grand scheme of things then up pops Gwibber and now everything has changed and I’m addicted to microbloging or to be more precise ‘communicating’.

To be honest its like being at a World Wide Lug all day and everyday there’s always someone with a good topic to have a two minute dialogue with. If you fancy a chat add me to your Twitter, Identi.ca, LinkedIN, Jaiku or Facebook account. Unless your name is Heidi and you will be coming to the UK soon and would like to meet men between 30-60 as you have no friends or relatives here. 😉
Lord Chin of Bacon (Jono Bacon) added me as a friend on his FaceBook account today, not bad seeing as its taken probably over a year for that lazy sod to get around to it, actually its rather spooky as Ive been thinking of deleting my account.
The thing is Ive not touched my facebook for at least three months now, to be honest Id lost interest in it most of my friends that I email or meet on irc anyway and the amount of junk tosh I get from Facebook every time one of my friends does a Compare Heros test is unbelievable!
It seems the latest rage is twitter which another pointless time wasting exercise that every man and his dog is flocking to, in my opinion its designed purely to gain a members list which will boost the price of Twitter if ever comes up for sale at some later date. After all Facebook offers exactly the same features as Twitter Peter is currently playing with some gung from his belly button so I dont see what all the fuss is about? It strikes me these websites are sort of Flavour of the month” affairs I still have a Mug Shot account that was all the rage a little while back and Im pretty sure there was two or three others that are now wandering the wastelands of the Gobi desert.
