So says the all-knowing “Mike” in the comments on Roger Ebert’s post about how to Tweet. Of course Ebert was going to get replies from the folks who supposedly don’t care or think it’s a waste of time.
“Holly Martins” chimes in:
Twitter is just another marketing tool for people like you. Good luck with it, I’m not interested.
For people like you? Movie critics? People who lost the ability to speak due to cancer surgery? Curious what she means by that? She’s so not interested she not only read a post by Ebert about Twitter she actually responded to let us all know just how little she cares. She cares so little that she takes the time to comment on how disinterested she is? How odd.
“Jim Stewart” contributes:
Much ado about nothing
I’d swear he was tweeting.
But there were a few gems like this bit by “Cynthia Langston”:
I’ve shunned tweeting, blogging, Facebook’ing, Ipad’ing and the like, preferring instead to spend the my precious time in the real world, having real life experiences. Then today, I realized that the bulk of my “real life experiences” involve standing in line at Target, arguing with idiots at customer service counters, glaring at jerks who make noise in movies and conversing with my friends about Dancing With The Stars. Need to rethink this.
That is actually a supremely tweetable bit if it could be edited down to 140 characters 🙂
