    Not necessarily.

    You can do it various ways.

    - Mobile web
    - TwitterFon (iPhones)
    - Twitterific (IPhones)
    - TwitterBerry (Blackberrys)

    People rarely send twits thru txt unless you're Shaq.

    That's exactly the reason why they say it's lame.

    I guess some of ya'll are just to "cool". The problem usually is, ya'll just don't know how to use it therefore it's lame.

    You type in names.

    Then add them as friends.

    How difficult can it be...?

    If you already have facebook and 90% of your friends do as well and go on on a regular basis, is there a need for Twitter?
    I don't really get what it is.

    I kinda agree... except I just hate facebook's apps and I still think it should be college only. [​IMG]

    Edit: The brevity of twitter is something I do like tho. Super simple and concise. Although, I do think the character limit should be raised slightly.
