    I'm looking at some different features to add to the site and one of the items involves Twitter.

    So.. do you use Twitter? :)

    Not sure the final direction it'll take but I have a few ideas in mind. You can also find a link under the "Our Community" menu.

    I never understood the point of Twitter. From my understanding you just go on there and post what you're doing.. it seems boring to me.

    I have two twitters, one is personal the other is for my forum. I rather enjoy tweeting, it's a good way to find out what others and famous people are doing. I follow Eminem ^.^

    Well, apparently we can now use up to 280 characters instead of 140.

    On my personal account I barely had anything to say in 140 characters let alone 280. :coffee:

    Which ones?
    The ones I have mentioned are merely the last 2 years or so. There are hundreds of sites I used to use that I haven't looked at for longer.

    Remember the old Geocities webpages?
    Google Talk used to be one of my favorite messengers.
    Remember Lycos?
    I used to surf Alexa Page Ranks too.
    I found a lot of interesting stuff on Web100 as well.
    Then there was Clipmarks (I think that turned into Pinterest but I'm not sure).
    Now there's Buzzle (Good ffor finding worthless graphics).
    I still read http://www.appleseeds.org/spec-idx.htm#Christmas
    The Tower of the Hand is still online Tower of the Hand ~ An Encyclopedia of Ice and Fire
    Star Trek Intelligence is still online Star Trek Intelligence

    I think twitter is sorted kinda like bookmarks. You can find a twitter account about anything you can think of.
    Twitter would be fine if I was pressed for time but I really do like to explore websites and read them.
