Heh. I'm fully sold on Facebook. (Minus the apps.)
I see no point to Twitter, except to lurk on people complaining about
or praising Tux Paint, and to read the Fake AP Stylebook's posts.
I can see the draw... but mostly I get irritated when I see stuff like
"RT: @123 @xyz @abc yeah #blah was wrong #FAIL #LOL"... guh?
It's especially irritating when it's out of context -- i.e., when their
out-of-the-blue tweets[*] show up as their status on LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.
I get the urge to ask "did you have something you wanted to share with
rest of the class?" ;)
Also, I'm still kicking it Web No-dot-oh... I'm active on Usenet.

[*] I initially called them "twitters", but then remembered there was
a technical term. ;)
