But the funny part is, in about 5 minutes, if it's THAT important, that same news will be on the news websites.
And as far as Ashton Kutcher, Nathan Gerbe, Anderson Cooper, Gene Simmons, or Pepsi (or add anyone here) doing twitter... I couldn't care less what they have to say
If it's THAT important, I'll read or hear about it 5 minutes later than the twitter drones.
Agreed. If you don't subscribe to them, then it doesn't have to be that way. I don't, and mine isn't.
If you're into a daily download of info, twitter isn't the answer. If you're following a story closely (Mario Williams signing, Congress working down the wire on some new law, etc) twitter is far further ahead than five minutes.
