My non-profit updates. I don't have the time to tweet about everything that I do. Who really cares if I'm watching a movie or brushing my teeth? It's so silly to tweet about non-sense.

I Tweet when I find a website that is interesting and I feel I should let others know about it!

No I don't and never will. Personally, I think the whole 'social networking' deal has become ridiculous. If anyone has that much time to divulge useless and inconsequential details about what they are doing every minute of the day, they need to get a life. I do not live through other people and what they happen to be doing. This society as a whole has become slaves to cell phones and social networking sites. Read a book, actually go volunteer time close to your home vs contributing a penny because you clicked on someone's link, sit down face-to face and catch up with your friends instead of through a webpage, or (a novel idea) go to their home and see their kids in person. I realize that long distances between people necessitate phone calls or planning trips to see them, but have we actually lost all ability to communicate unless it is posted all over a computer screen or on a telehone?
No, I am not an old 'fuddy-duddy', I just prefer actual spoken sentences and being able to see the eyes of who I am talking with.

I don't have a Twitter, because it doesn't add any enjoyment to my life.  I already have a blog and post on hobby message boards, and that eats up a ton of time.

I have a twitter account but I honestly think it's about the most stupid form of communication ever. I occasionally tweet a quick update about something important going on in my life or I tweet about an update I have on my website. Unfortunately I currently only have 4 followers and one of them is one of the clients for the company that I work for, so it's not like it really does me any good right now.

I made an account to follow who I wanted to follow...but it's really not horribly important. I really don't need to read about what people are doing every second of their life. In the same way I don't need them to know about every second of my life. I also think it's funny when restaurants say to follow them on Twitter. Okay Subway...I'll follow you on Twitter. Let me know when my sandwich is done.

Sidenote:
I just checked my Twitter account...my first "tweet" was "Sometimes I be on mission, and sometimes I be here at the house." Lol I think that may be a very important bit of information for my 2 followers.

I have Twitter...not really a fan, just added it into my "nerd bag" for when I find a use for it.  thankfully I only have a few people on my list, so I'm not going crazy watching it.  I do agree that face to face is still the best form of communication...and that we should be working more closely with each other in human vs. electronic form.

I love what Jordanman posted.
Yeah, I pretty much have mine just so I can follow certain people who I don't live near. It helps me keep in touch with them.
