    End times are here! The whole concept of Twitter finally crept into my mind and I've been compelled to sign up. Anybody else go down this rabbit hole? Who do you follow?

    I gave it a solid try, but it's pretty dumb unless you care about reading/sharing silly minute details of your life using bad e-slang and acronyms. :)

    ^^^ That was my initial attitude, hence I never bothered. The bit that I'm interested in is information from news outlets, and to keep connected with other individuals and organizations of interest. NASA for example, or BBC news. For me I really intend for it to be just a source of information, I don't intend on Tweeting how much corn was in my morning shit or anything.

    Yeah, NASA tweets some cool pictures and it's a very active account. They're probably my most interesting follow.

    I tried to invest myself in it, I just forgot about it. I just logged in to see what I'm missing and, sandwiched between space picutres and NORML updates, I saw that the goofy local news anchor I follow posted this:

    I don't plan on being corralled like the rest of the herd.

    There's a difference between avoiding the herd and just being antisocial.

    Use Wefollow.com... its my directory of choice to find cool shit to follow. Also, once you get Over about 50 follows, make use of the lists feature (otherwise you'll just be on overload)

    Next thing you know, he'll be tweeting embarrassing things about himself on Jimmy Fallon's hatchtag bits. He has become like they are. He has taken their hand. He has become like they are. Come on baby! Don't Fear The Tweeter.

    He's one of the herd of those who follow, now. We have lost him...

    I follow Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Neil Patrick Harris, LeVar Burton, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Aziz Ansari, NASA, CDC, and some sports teams. It kills time if I'm bored waiting around some place before class or on the toilet or something.

    So far I'm following Michio Kaku, Fareed Zakaria, Sting, Conan Obrien, Charlie Sheen, BBC, ODOT, NASA, and Jimmy Buffet. Probably going to drop Buffet though, I get the feeling those tweets are coming from a staffer and not the man himself. Probably pretty common with celebs.

    Ah yes, but you left out the mavericks that watch the herd from afar for recreational purposes. :wink:

    Of course I have a twitter account... lol I follow my cousins, some friends, and a few music artists and comedians. I'm not real big on it, but I like some of the links people post. It's not really worth spending much time on though. Aziz is pretty funny

    oh my my my. are you getting all modern on us?
    Twitter is a pain in the arse, got fed up with loads of stuff asking me to follow whatever or could they follow me bullshit. Get sick of the youngsters at university tweeting "I'm bored" and all that bullshit, it's status this and status that. just feck off and get a life you young numnuts waste of space. Yes that's an old wrinkly rant from a brit grumpy old man.
    Leave macgiver alone, all he wants to do is invent things and then blow them up, wittingly or not. lol.

    thought I'd stop lurking.

    Hey Kip, nice to hear from you! But yeah, I have to filter a bunch of the stuff I follow otherwise my phone would be vibrating constantly.
