I have been on Twitter since the beginning but I have no idea why people use it. The length restriction is totally lame, UX is rough, and it seems infested with wannabe's (followers), selfish people that live to share their lives with hashtags and pics of innane shit, Ashton, self-proclaimed "social media experts"), and hookers. Facebook has old people, and I'm one of 'em.

To me, Twitter seems more compatible with the older internet user's view that what you do on the internet should, if you want it to be, be somewhat anonymous. Or at least feel that way.
