Twitter is the Dumbest Thing I Have Ever Seen in My Life

What is wrong with you people? Did you lose your minds? Get a job. Are you that bored?

On December 30, 2008 I was in Prague spending the New Year's Eve. That morning I found a copy of the Financial Times outside my hotel room and read this story during my breakfast, entitled Companies use Twitter to pack PR punch.

The story was intriguing and I was curious. When I returned home I opened up a Twitter account, almost two months ago by now. Here is my review and experience with Twitter for the past two months. It is a useless, stupid nightmare. This idiotic Web 2.0 nonsense is crammed with spammers and crazy people who have too much time in their hands, not to mention the occasional hookers here and there who are trying to sneak in with their tweets.

Twitter is the dumbest thing I have ever seen, I can't believe my eyes. What is wrong with you people? Did you lose your minds? Get a job, do something, leave this stupidity alone.

Now, I have to rescue my cell phone (blackberry) from the direct text messages and advertising spam, infested like cockroaches.

This weekend I will yank anything and everything I am receiving through my Twitter account out of my laptop and get my inbox back. This is stupid!
