I get the impression it is a place where people with phone-permenantly-attached-to-their-face-syndrome tell the world every time they take a dump. I thought it was for 14 year-old girls to post duckface ‘selfies’ and hipsters to post pictures of sushi and have the false impression that someone actually cares. A place where celebrities can post “oh look my boob fell out, goodness how did that happen teehee”.
Maybe I just don’t get out much. Or maybe its the oppisite. I get out too much... as in outside. Either way I can guarantee my life is alot happier and more simple and stressfree than someone that is plugged into a gadget every waking second.
I don’t want to tell the whole world and load 17 pictures everytime I eat breakfast.

You don’t have to post anything nor have an account.

But reading the Twitter account of someone you know and trust can be a great way of getting a new take on a situation.

For instance I like reading:

and

Yes, there’s a lot of that on Twitter, but by taking care in setting up who you “follow”, you will only see information pertinent to your interests, for the most part. I won’t even “follow” people who provide some good info if their posts are going to clutter up my timeline with the mundane and useless.

I don’t “follow” 14-year-old girls, so I don’t see duckface selfies. I follow Michelle Malkin, so I’m kept up to date on immigration and Common Core.

That would be facebook. I am sure facebook has a better use than that too and I agree with you. I don’t have any interest in posting what I do all day nor reading about what someone else does. Twitter can be used in such a manner as to follow various news sites and all I do is retweet the big news but mostly I just read it and determine if I wish to click on the links to read further.

I think the liberals do that on Twitter but I have no interest in such things. I do a search for Washington Times and follow it and on and on. As various things happen it comes in handy to follow a specific news outlet such as CSPAN temporarily. You can even select your local news outlets.
