By now, I'm sure you've all at least heard of Twitter. So, who here has it? I do, and if you want to follow me, I'm anakinjmt. Yep. Real simple. Easy to find me.

Overhyped. More people talk about twitter than those who have it.

It's good for businesses, especially those in media, to keep in touch quickly with their customers/userbase, but that's about it.

Me n my friends basically just use it like a big, stupid, all-day-long IM chat room, as a means to text everybody at once and see everyone's replies.

If messages on Twitter are called "tweets", what are the users of Twitter called? Twits?  Undecided?

I'm not on Twitter, and don't have any plans to be.

I use it mainly to update my Facebook status and follow celebrities, mainly Harry Potter actors and 24 cast members/crew. Although last night I did find Allison Mack from Smallville and I followed her, and I got a direct message from her thanking me for the follow AND she decided to follow me. Granted, it looks like if you follow her she'll follow you, but still.

I mainly got excited about Twitter at first, because of the ability to follow celebrities. Then I realized after a week or two that celebrities private lives are as boring as ours, and now I don't really care about Twitter anymore.

All depends on who you follow. The 24 people gives me an idea of what's going on with the new season, like Mary Lynn Rajskub saying that she finished shooting a night scene with Annie Wersching. And the Harry Potter actors, while none of the Trio except for possibly one, still gives you an insight into both publicity for HBP and filming for DH. Plus, Tom Felton seems to have an exciting life based on his tweets, and Matt Lewis really likes watching cricket. Not the sort of stuff you'd normally learn in interviews. Kristin Stewart doesn't use it much, but when she does she'll say something about New Moon or Eclipse or some other film she's working on.

Major Nelson lets me know upcoming things for 360 and Xbox Live. I had no idea Battlefield 1943 was coming out until he said something about it. And Jessica Chobot...well, she's Jessica Chobot. Hotness + huge love for gaming.

The MuggleCast people are just cool people in general who are pretty entertaining. Plus, Andrew Sims was tweeting about things from the US HBP premiere and the press junket which was really interesting to hear. And it gives me an idea of what's to come on MC and when we might expect a new episode. MuggleNet lets me know the latest HP news, as does TwilightSource for Twilight news. I follow Michael Ausiello from EW for the latest TV scoop news and to find out when the next Ask Ausiello is up, and Matt Roush from TV Guide Magazine to hear his thoughts on stuff in TV and movies, as well as to let me know when the next Ask Matt is up.

Oh, and Taylor Swift simply because she's Taylor Swift. Amazing singer and amazing beauty.

Everyone else is people I know. I don't follow celebrities simply for the heck of it. I purposefully choose who to follow for specific reasons.

Haven't ever seen somebody's Twitter.  Shoot, I don't even know how you would follow somebody on it.  And there's no desire to learn.

No. She's hot, she's a huge gamer who actually knows about gaming, unlike "other" female gamers Kristin Holt and she seems like a lot of fun.

You hit the Follow button.

You know, follow is also a synonym for stalk.

Just throwing that out there.

Eh, I'd say a synonym for stalk is "follow obsessively and be unnaturally interested" which considering I'm like two days behind on Tweets I think can safely rule me out.

In addition, two days. Two DAYS. <.<
