Twitter - Her Most Regal Majesty, the Queen of Snark
void where prohibited, except by law
This is only coming to a head now because the media noticed Stephen Fry is in love with it, right?

I can sort of understand why some people would want to Twitter, although I have to say the idea bores me. What I can't understand is why they then feel the need to echo their (t)witterings to a far less restrictive medium like LJ.

Just to help those of you that weren't there already, this is not an invitation for you to explain to me why Twitter is awesome. I honestly don't care enough for it to matter.

Is it just me, or has the Internet stopped being exciting and innovative?

When was the internet exciting and innovative? I must've blinked and missed it :)

(Oh, and I don't get Twitter either)

It's easy to spot bits of the internet that aren't exciting and innovative; they're the things that the media have noticed. Well, and most of the stuff the media hasn't noticed, too, to be fair (to the internet, that is; I'm not sure how to be fair to the media without an axe, and there isn't one handy). But no, I don't feel any kind of appeal about twitter either.

The only bit of Twitter I've approved of so far has been someone creating a fake Daily Mail Twitter account and spamming out messages like "littlejohn so drunk right now. riding toy car around bollock naked".

(Okay, I made that one up. But it should have been included.)
