    Twitter

    Is ten years old today. I signed up in Jan 2012, I really don't remember it being around before at least 2010? Maybe that's because I was a late adopter of smartphones (got my first in 2011 lol). It's fucking brilliant though. Use it daily. At it's best when something serious kicks off and you can get proper on the ground explicit footage of stuff the news don't and won't show. Or FOOTIE RUMOURS.

    When did you lot sign up, and if you haven't yet, you're a freak (but why not?).

    My original account is April 2009 but I've had to change off of it so it looks like I'm a pleb.

    Ah right, cheers. I don't think I've seen Twitter in a browser in around 3 years, I'll have a look.

    EDIT: August 2008. A long time considering my total tweets are in the low 20's.

    Tried it probably six or seven years ago. Found it utterly redundant. Stopped using it.

    Can't see the point in tweeting anything but it's a great news feed. It replaced TTH as my morning newspaper.

    I think I must have used it wrong because it was never useful for me. I think I just don't care enough about anything to want to read about it.

    Like I can click on the weekend football threads on here and see what games are on, if the first post is good. And I can click on hiphopearly and see what songs have come out lately, and that's all my interests ticked off and read about in two easy clicks; no Twitter required.

    What a sad life I live.

    Well yes if there's only two things you want to know about then there's no purpose to it.

    What/who do you lot follow on Twitter to make your feed(?) a good read?

    Things I'd like to be alerted about daily:
    Football transfers in the premier league
    If there are any new ISIS videos
    What new rap songs/albums are worth listening to
    If there's any beef between UK rappers
    What films are out that week
    If any of the regular Radio 1xtra DJs are off
    What's going on in the world of feminism
    I'm a twit

    Very little that constitutes a good read, but I subscribe to news, weather, traffic, sport, etc accounts and a quick scroll down through tells me all I need to know for the morning.

    There's a few tech and other things I'm interested in (that wouldn't be 'news') that I subscribe to but, with the way it's very easy to miss stuff in Twitter, I'll always check out those things by other means anyway.

    Twitter is great as long as you only follow people/interests you give a shit about.

    1,526 tweets purely about jungle/drum and bass, and gaming

    I'm not really into social media at all. I have a facebook and until this weekend hadn't posted a status in over a year (I think) - I have a twitter that I created once to try and book Wagner for a party and that's it.

    January 09 , 6 years after joining TD. 6.3k tweets,620 following, 319 followers. It's great for a rant during the football or when something interesting is going on.

    Twitter + Pocket is a great combo when taking a quick break at work. Trawl through your recent tweets, save any articles you want to read, read them over lunch / when you get home. Assuming you have the data for it / are on wifi.

    Only follow and like others use it as a news feed. Bit miffed Michael Cox deleted his football journalists list last week.

    @natgeo - some cool shit posted on here

    @nasa - as above

    @greenscreendays - posts shit about games from the good ol' days

    This is it. It's incredibly useful as a news source - particularly when there's BREAKING NEWS.

    Being mildly aware of your surroundings would be a start.

    He must be working off the assumption that we were all fans. Makes his post reek a bit of 'do you know who I am?' which is actually a bit sad, so I'll leave it there. Bless.

    I must just have a really poor attention span, though until very recently most of you just ran into one person. Probably helps now that there's less of you.

    From googling, some account that did racist parody jokes.

    Twitter have been banning a shitload of people lately that have been copying/astroturfing tweets lately. If he was known for 'edgy' material while apparently using a member of the publics picture instead of his own it was only a matter of time.

    The Nazi's are still there though.
