Twitter is far too ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) for my taste.
We're already bombarded with high-speed information as it is, but Twitter takes it to a methamphetimine level. Also, there's no way to verify anything on it. Someone spreads a rumor and it goes viral without anybody checking to see if the rumor is true or not.
And here's a little interesting bit of news reguarding Twitter:
November 23, 2009
Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber owes his entire career to the Internet. When he was the ripe old age of 13, Bieber and his family began posting videos of his performances on YouTube. Someone in a suit liked the tunes and boom -- Bieber was signed with Usher's label. Now his infamy shall be cast in the iron of the Web, as one of Bieber's team was arrested for not using Twitter. One more time: arrested for not using Twitter.
James A. Roppo, 44, senior vice president of Bieber's label, Island Def Jam Records, was arrested November 20 on felony assault charges. Three thousand crazy screaming girls (and their parents) showed up at Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island for a Bieber album signing. Soon, the crowd became unhinged with teenybop bloodlust, and Roppo refused to send out a Twitter message
saying the signing had been canceled. This "reckless behavior," as police called it, resulted in escorts to the hospital for five and a "minor injury" on a crowd-control police officer. Roppo was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, obstruction of governmental administration, reckless endangerment, and criminal nuisance.
What a crazy world we live in, eh? LOL
