Twitter.

Twitter is one of those things I don't quite get. It seems simple enough but like a lot of the web it's always seemed like a solution looking for a problem. Yes, I know about the tweets coming out of China and Iran, and while I stopped being dismissive of it because of that I still wonder if it isn't just the Friends Reunited of the moment. I heard recently that Facebook is starting to become slightly uncool among the Gen X-ers Gen Y-ers* not just because of the current appeal of Twitter but also because their parents are starting to sign up and social network at them in front of their friends, and I suspect that sooner or later something similar will happen to Twitter. But over on the LPUK blog I noticed this and this, so perhaps I should get into it (and Facebook since it too has similar groups I'd support if I used it) while it's still worth it.

*Corrected when Mrs Exile pointed out that I've got Generation X and Y the wrong way round again. This may be typical for a Gen X bloke on a Friday night.

Heh!

At least, before computers, if mum wanted to read all your darkest secrets, she had to find your diary first. Now, she just types into a search engine and gets the shock of her life... :)

Never kept a diary. I think it's one of those Mars/Venus differences. Not that it helped keep my darkest secrets safe because my mum used to just ask my friends while offering ice cream or something, and the unreliable fucking cocksuckers used to spill the fucking beans practically every time.
