I'm on Facebook. What are the main differences between the two?

Facebook is more complex. Twitter is just a series of statements 140 characters or less, basically answering the question, "What are you doing?" Kind of a mini-blog, but very quick and to the point. I never liked the others (Facebook, MySpace) because it was too much stuff. This is quick and to the point.

I also have a facebook. For some reason I find Twitter to be rather annoying and stoopid, eventhough its pretty much the same thing.

Hate Twitter. The Padres/Mariners game had their field correspondent "twittering", last night (it was simulcast through MLB Network). After the game I checked out her twittering feed, since she was kind of a cute broad. But it was completely worthless gibberish, like "8th inning. Did you see that play? Hope to get interview".

A few months ago, the late lamented Rocky Mountain News sent a reporter to Twitter the funeral of a 3 year old boy killed in an accident. Pushed the limits of taste, but in included such insightful crap like: "10:33 am- dirt is thrown onto coffin".

I kinda' hate Twitter because it's dumbing down "journalism" and bringing Internet "sites" down to the lowest common level. Most Twitter feeds have poor spelling, awful grammar (stuff like: "your hot" or "it would of been a good idea") and halfway-formed random thoughts. The basic gimmick is that Twitter doesn't want you to think before posting something. Verbal diarrhea on the Internet.

Love it. Should be the UPPMB slogan.

Funny that you should be the one to mention it, eStragand, what with your spring training, um, tradition.

At first I thought he was talking about CIA and their colorful vocabulary

Hey now..my stool's usually a bit more solid during my Remote Stadium Excursions. Stayed home for ST this year, although I'm looking at hitting possibly US Cellular, (new) Busch or Safeco Field this season (hit Fenway, Shea and PETCO, last year).
