What is Instagram? What is Form Spring? What is Reddit? What is Tumbler? I only have a vague understanding of Twitter and Face Book and use them cautiously. R hates Face Book because he struggles to understand how it works. If he has asked me once, he has asked me many times what Twitter is about.
I was almost at the cutting edge of computers in 1996, ok, not quite cutting edge if it was 1996. But everyone thought I was an expert and wanted my advice and help with their new fandangled computer and the internet. Now I am I just an ignorant older person. I don't know about these things I mentioned above and I don't really care.
I checked Twitter to see if there was any goss on how musician Greg Ham died. There was nothing that I found. There were so many announcements from various folk that he died. Five hours after the BBC alerted me to his death via my phone, Twitter folk were still finding it necessary to alert people that Greg Ham had died. If you don't speak English, no matter. His death is announced in many languages.
While I don't deny that Twitter can be very useful, mostly it is quite tedious.
