Would anyone be kind enough to explain what it's all about?  Could it be another way for me to waste time rather than doing things I SHOULD be doing?  And could we have an extended network of PTFers...?   Cheesy

Someone is TRYING to suck me in but I refuse.  I agree with Nat - just something else to suck my time away.  FB and myspazz are more than enough to do that.  Oh and PTF of course!  Wink

It seems a good way to quickly tell the world what I'm doing RIGHT NOW, but why would anyone care?

Exactly!  And I can already do that with FB and MS...if I really cared to keep it updated.  FB seems stalkerish enough anyway.   undecided

Because we love you Ministry Smiley
 
To be honest, I'm not really getting much out of it at the moment, because I don't know too many people on there.
 
Comedy Dave on the Chris Moyles show raised a good point the other morning - if you have regularly updated your friends with your actions, what do you talk about when you actually get together? They'll already know what you've been up to.

Spotify. Now there's something that looks promising.

Okay so wtf is this exactly? It's like the new craze that everyone is signing up for... I didn't really gather what it is from this topic other than that it is similar to Facebook and Myspace maybe?

I'm not entirely sure because I realised I spent enough time on here anyway...   Wink Roll Eyes
 
...but, afaik, it's something like this:
 
3.28pm.  Sat in boiling hot classroom listening to Music Tech students doing their tracks on Ableton.  Worried about hair having gone curly.
 
...Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

Ain't it all just about the updates that each poster puts out or is there more to it? If not, then it might just be even more of a 'spy-community' than Facebook and Myspace Roll Eyes

To hell with it, I joined.

I can't stand it, to be honest. No offense to anyone, I just don't see the point; I'm glued to facebook enough as it is.

A lot of bands/members of band seem to have it now. I tried to look at them and follow along but I just said screw this, I'll get my updates the old fashioned way, either through a forum or just on their band website.

I've had it since around January, still enjoying it! I suppose one problem is that people take "what are you doing?" too literally, when actually it should be something like "what can you share that's interesting?", but that is far less catchy! I obviously post inane stuff now and then, and I kind of like reading about inane stuff my friends are doing, just not to the extent of "breathed in...breathed out again". But there is also a lot of genuinely interesting stuff to be found on there.

So in the exact opposite direction of my above post, I bit the bullet and made an account just to follow along with the artists I like. And by follow along with I mean mildly stalk because I feel that's what I am doing with Twitter.

That's the purpose of Twitter, so that's fine!
I 'mildly stalk' Devin Townsend, he 'tweets' (I hate using that as a verb) quite a lot, nice to see what he's up to during the production of his releases.
I just can't believe how much Roadrunner tweets! All.The.Time

Yeah I was following Roadrunner UK but then stopped because it was just spam haha. I follow Trent Reznor, Aaron Harris, Devin Townsend and some others that I forget right now. Those three 'tweet' the most often.

Ah, I should follow/stalk Trent! And I should stop following Roadrunner, but they tend to have a few (read: VERY FEW) updates that I take interest in.
