Twitter Help Please !?!?!





I got a twitter account about 2 weeks ago, I fricking hate it.
I am gonna be open minded and throw it out here for someone to come and defend it to me or explain it to me.

If you don't have a twitter account or have never even heard of twitter, hold off from googling it and getting an account. I am gonna try and get some twitter help or at least an explanation and I will post here. As of right know, my uneducated recommendation is avoid it like the plague, I see no benefit.

I know it might just suck cause I don't have followers or follow a lot of people but I can't even really figure out how the hell to get that ball rolling.

And once I have a bunch of followers/followees what the hell good does it do me??

I am trying to be open minded but this is just a huge timesuck!

I am a moderately internet savvy guy and can usually see a sensible benefit to all of the latest crazes that come through my feeds. ( I know twitter isn't new, but I just got around to trying it).
I do not get twitter and I am gonna give it another week for someone to convince me and then I am deleting the account.

    I felt the same way as you at first. I got my fiance and my roommate in on it, and I also started following a lot of guys from news.ycombinator.com (codinghorror lazycoder have some interesting things). In a lot of ways it is a time-sucker, but it can be fun. There are some cool bots too (Sandy from iwantsandy.com comes to mind, although I don't really use the service much)
