More Twitter Bashing

I have tried it now, that pesky little Twitter, but I continue to believe that I don't get much more from it that the ability to annoy anyone that has my updates set to be sent to their phone.

Of the people I "follow", most just post links to their blogs, which I am already reading through RSS feeds, so no need for those posts.

I think I may have participated in one conversation there.

And of course, there are the outages, the downtimes, the missing functionality, which some people believe will get better with the inflow of cash that the tech company recently received. I am still not sure that it will fix what seems like it might be a good idea just implemented wrong.

I am starting to prefer FriendFeed quite a bit where there is a lot more open conversation on a variety of topics and it lends itself to allow for longer posts. The issue is pulling the masses from Twitter, which admittedly has a stronger user base, and getting them into the FriendFeed.

While the problems remain, and my skepticism, it seems that BusinessWeek isn't ready to give up on its push of the service that began with its beyond blogs article a few weeks back.

So, I guess I will keep watching, or following as the case may be.

(And of course, as I write this and try to add links, Twitter won't let me log in as it is over-capacity.)
