    Signed up for it a couple of times with different email addresses about 3 years ago. Have never used it. It seems absolutely stupid, IMHO.

    The only people I ever hear reference Twitter are the media. And seemingly everyone in the media uses it. Seems to be the foundation of them chattering amongst themselves. So much unsourced data or claims, just worthless crap.

    My group of co-workers, friends, and trivia competitors, only know of one who uses it.

    Just a random thought I've been mulling for a while. Does anyone else have a different experience or other responses on this subject. Yes, I do use Facebook sparingly. Mostly to keep up with college & high school friends.

    Not a twit to my name although my youngest uses it to keep up with the politics and politicians she has to deal with.
    I do Instagram to some degree although I ‘follow’ very few and even fewer followers.
    I don’t Facebook at all but do LinkedIn keeping up with my compatriots in the industry.

    Other than that it’s email and CU.

    I signed up but never use it. I really don't care what people have to say about random topics and I assume nobody really cares about what I have to say.

    I signed up but I wouldn't have needed too. All I do is read Trumps tweets.

    I follow national, local and formally local news, several conservative twitterers, pastors, bands, some gaming and tech stuff and more random stuff on Twitter than I do Facebook. FB is more for people I actually know, Twitter is the people who are interesting, but you wouldn't give them your real phone number

    I don't post squat, but that's because I've spent too much of the past several years looking for work, and now work for a school district that has been known to check employee's social media for "embarrassing" or "unprofessional" posts.

    I will say that I have been tempted to follow Alec Baldwin just so I can reply to his tweets with Hannity retweets.

    Never signed up for Twitter. Never had the desire to and couldn't see any use for wasting my time with it.
