Twitter Annoys Me

Penny Arcade does Twitter
Penny Arcade vs Twitter

This comic by Penny Arcade and the accompanying article pretty much sum up my feelings about Twitter. It is just too much information. The signal-to-noise ratio is just far to low for me to stand it. The frequency that people generaly update their status line in Facebook is just about right for me. Once every few days is often enough. Of course that is completely thrown off when people forward their twitter updates to their Facebook status line. It bothers me so. You people know who you are. Just stop it. If I wanted to know what flavor of jelly you are putting on your toast for breakfast, then I would subscribe to your Twitter stream. But I don't, so please don't make me.
