Son you straight lost your damn mind.

Just kidding - I don't use Twitter so I have no idea.

Were you being serious or yanking our chains?

Twitter is the greatest thing ever...and this is coming from someone that has never in his life sent a tweet before...

Also my "addiction" to it is reserved for certain times - during Sports. I don't read tweets during the day. I don't send any.

But during a big sporting event, or during a trade (like last night when CP3 was announced), twitter is the most addicting thing in the world to read.

Sundays are Football on multiple screens and twitter on the iPad to read reactions.

Of course I only really follow sports guys and sports bloggers - not really anyone else - so the rest I probably would find dumb. Haha.

I think it depends. I 100% agree with you. My wife on the other hand is Facebook stalking 22 hours a day.

I love twitter you find out about things before it hits the news. I recently deactivated my facebook just to stick with twitter. Facebook really gets on my nerves with all the friend request and notifications and such. But any way @chansen10 Follow me!

Agreed. Facebook continues to lose my interest by the day. I love twitter, I actually have three different accounts (2 work, 1 personal) and wish I was better at updating, but I'm definitely using it more then Facebook.

I use it the most when covering games, live updates are popular for parents/coaches who aren't at the game.

Also, as others have mentioned, I love that news first hits twitter. It's really cool to watch a story unfold on twitter.
