@51r3 Well, my first impression about Twitter also was: way overhyped trendy "web2.0" crap. But once I tried it out myself I've to admit it is fun and actually useful. I guess the negative inital reflex many have to it has to do with the immediate notion that this service is

a) incredibly cheap and simple (how can a scener applaud something which is not incredibly impossible to achieve or technologically at least a bit somehow amazing?)
b) a global hype (how can a member of some obscure underground movement embrace something which is immensely popular and mainstream?)
c) forgot (but three points are nicer than two)

Also, this old shirt sentence "if it's too loud, you are too old" may need an update: "if it's too social web, you are too old". Controversial topic, actually, right?

remember the time of your childhood when everyone had a gijoe and you didnt and you were desperate to get one otherwise noone would care about you?
...remember how you hoped it would end at some point?

I always preferred LEGO anyway. Still do. Someone should make a demo about it...

I actually enjoyed using Twitter to report from Breakpoint (though in a rather personal way instead of just posting all currently running entries like others did - which might come in handy as a dedicated source, too). @homeworkprod

@teemulahti. Mostly filled with random garbage though as I'm just too lazy to actually tweet about anything.

I was looking for a suitable twitter account today, but curlybrace, kurli, rainmaker, medicineman, qrli, kewlers, sqny, sts, synesthetics, mfx among others are already taken by some douchebags
