    Actually you just summed it up completely. There is nothing special about it. I really don't know why so many people are attracted to twitter.

    I think Twitter is the biggest waste of time (next to Facebook of course).

    It’s just another way to keep in contact with people and spread news quickly. I signed when we had the massive thread about it a few weeks ago.

    I got news of the 360 dash signup from MajorNelsons Twitter which allowed a lot of us to quickly signup to the new 360 dashboard beta befor major websites got hold of the news, it has its uses!

    That's the BBC for you, all they ever talk about is twitter and iphones. Who the hell uses twitter, except for the fact that "everyone else is using it", god damn mindless masses. What has the world gone to, rebel, rebel!

    I couldn't agree more. Rise up against the masses and be unique.

    OK, after racking up over 1200 followers I had enough, it was boring and to hard to keep up with. My Twitter account has been officially deleted.:D<:o)

    Shhhhh, I ended up receiving a DM from an old friend just as I was in the process of deleting the account, otherwise I would have stayed gone.

    You can now get the latest service news and information for our local Bus service via Twitter, not the best photo in the world but I was very surprised to see this flyer on the bus today.
