Are you on Twitter?

If you're on Twitter, please follow the new Wrist Twisters Twitter page:

http://twitter.com/wristtwisters

Updates and news about the site will be going through the Twitter page.

If you are not on Twitter, please bookmark the URL because in the event, the server ever goes offline, I can communicate status updates about whats going on through the Twitter page so you can get notice of whats happening and when the site will be back online. I sure hope to never use it for this reason, but its there should it ever happen.

Follow Wrist Twisters on Facebook and Twitter

sorry but i dont think i will ever get into that. its already bad enough i have the attention span of nat i dont need anything else ..OOO BUTTERFLY!!...... to distract me from getting my work done, which is another reason why i dont have internet capable phone to do twitter or go to any other websites while i am supposed to be productive. im glad people need to know whether their neighbor is eating soup or not.

I'm sure there's some valid reason for Twitter to exist, I'm just tired of the media Twitter barrage. Even watching the NBA playoffs, some ditzy reporter was gushing about Kevin Garnett twittering on the sidelines and how she'd be twittering right along with him.

I refuse to twitter, tweet or anything of that nature. Somewhere this social media stuff just has to stop. What happened to just sharing a conversation over beer w/ your buds and catching up on the week's activities? I don't give two sh*ts about every detail at every moment of my friend's lives. Social interaction has taken a seriously wrong turn somewhere in our culture.

I guess the whole twitter thing just escapes me. Between IM, myspace, facebook, email, text messaging, cell phones, landlines, message boards and proabably a dozen others I haven't listed I just don't see the value or ROI to another social interaction medium. (How's that for use of an acronym?)

Cut the guy a break would ya?

He just bought a new business and he's just doing what he can to get the word out about it. The sad but true fact of these days is that we (Humans) have become dependent on computers and they are used as the main mode of contact/information for business and as much as I don't like it as the next guy socializing networks are part of business now. Isn't this place just another form of socializing? Facebook, Myspace, twitter... are phases and will pass, but for now they do serve a purpose in advertising or growing business in a very cheap yet effective way. I think you will find that more people will be joining wrist twisters because of these efforts and we will all benefit from that.

Anyone wake up this weekend to WT being down?
Anyone wonder why?
Anyone check the site a few times that day just to see it was still down?

With Twitter you would have known it was taking longer than usual.
With Twitter you would have known it was back up.

As for Ridge... You don't even need dial up for Twitter.
As for Barton... We all know you sat in front of you computer pushing F5 waiting for a different result.

my humor about the situation comes from celebrities and news outlets that think they are so "important" that everyone should follow their every move via twitter..

if you wanna twitter.. by all means... twitter...

barton, by all means, I agree with you.
The nicest part about twitter is that you get to chose who/what you hear about.
Sadly, the regular news will just dictate what you want to will see and hear about.

For the record........ I am a non-twitterer. (But I do have a BB Storm)

Or I could enjoy myself being occupied by more important things like bicycle/moto maintenance, riding, mowing spending time with friends in person rather than anticipating the next status update.

Edit: I certainly agree that Barton was while the forums were down for maint.

Hey, I was checking the site about every 10 minutes... I had something important to say and since it took so long to get back up, I eventually forgot what it was that I wanted to say? Couldn't have been that important???? I think!

Uh, Barton ? I would like to participate in said beating of a certain and useless Mrs. Kutcher. How may I be of assistance ?

I too, thumb my nose at this twitter nonsense.

I enjoy w/t very much but the fact that it was down for however long changed neither my breathing nor my heart rate.

One more thing. I just get used to JetBlasts' shenanigans, now I gotta put up with some guy called Lash ? whatever.

Welcome to the w/t.

I have twittered

I really see Twitter as just a multi-user text messaging service. I don't follow a sh*t ton of people but it's another way to "hear" about stuff I am interested in. And I kinda like it.

Granted I don't play those silly FaceSpace MyBook games, so I'm not as wired-in as most. Considering that I work in IT and, thus, spend the majority of my day in front of computers, the previous sentence may seem counterintuitive. The other "Social Networks" [Christ, did I mention I hate that term] take significantly more of my time.
