So I made a Twitter account maybe 3 or 4 months ago and pretty much never touched it. I just realized how integrated my iPhone is with twitter and decided to give it a second shot. I find its a great way to check up on the GiantBomb Crew and all my other interests. My question to you all, as stated by the thread title, is do you use Twitter often? Do you find it useful or do you just stick to the facebooks?

If you would like, leave your twitter name here and I'll follow you.

Mine is @Tolman_Alex.

Mine's @DavidEitle.

I do use it quite a bit, usually just for random shit that comes into my head. I find it to be more casual, most of my family members have no idea that I'm on Twitter so I don't have to worry about saying stuff that would make them totally hate me. As for actual usefulness, I think it's a great way of breaking news. The minute it happens, it shows up.

I used to use Twitter infinitely more than I do now, which is a shame because I enjoyed the friendly communal atmosphere of the small follower-base that I acquired quite a bit. But I am just not doing as many interesting things now as I was back then. At this point it's mostly down to going to work, class, or playing something quick and simple like Plants vs. Zombies or Modern Warfare 3 to bridge the gap between them.

However, if you're really interested in following me I can be found @RobertDevious.

I followed a bunch of you. I use it regularly to tweet about games, music, movies, or just life in general. I also follow those who don't tweet about what they are doing at the moment: @work. #bored. @Mall. #Shopping. #NowPlaying X.

That is NOT how you should be using twitter.

You should follow me! Twitter.com/FabledFew

I use it daily. Tweet Deck really makes it easy to separate out the different groups of people that I follow. All the bands and music related stuff is separated from all the gaming media which is separated from the gaming personalities, etc. It makes it easier to follow the different conversations going on.

@Animasta: So have you been missing out on Jeff and Ryan live streaming their car ride home because you don't get notifications? It's like mini bombcasts with a chatroom.

I've got 2:

TonyBlue87 is my personal feed.

I also have a fan feed for a podcast called Geek Shock. I do "Best Of" compilations for them (not unlike the Best of Giant Bombcast) I post when new episodes are up and general geek news: BestOfGeekShock

I think it's a great tool for things such as announcements or following people whose thoughts and opinions you might value.

I can't stand Facebook anymore so Twitter is all I need.

Twitter has a horribly dark side though when people use it for those "Starbucks with Mike" tweets but to each his own.

Pretty much this. Twitter is like a weird RSS feed for me. At one point in my life, I used it to actually communicate with people and such, but now I just follow a bunch of people and click on it when I'm bored to see what they're up to or what the latest news is. It works surprisingly well for that.

I'm @animathias feel free to follow me and I'll return the favor.

I would, but no one I know is on Twitter and even if they were, I would only want 2 or 3 of them to see my posts. Same reason I never use Facebook unless someone talks to me directly.

Saying a bunch of irrelevant shit isn't quite the same without the illusion of people being interested in it.

I use my own every now and then if I think I have something to say (turns out, when I say something, it isn't worth saying). I also operate the account for my website, but I usually post via Facebook to get it across multiple channels.

Shameless :)

Lots of people on the site use twitter, and we have a thread specifically for Twitter type discussions right over here.

We can't have every bugger making a "I have twitter, follow me please" thread otherwise it would be bleedin' chaos, so unfortunately this thread is being locked.
