Being a relative newbie to the whole Twitter phenomena myself, I’m still learning the ins and outs of the hottest new social networking service on the web, including the subtle points of etiquette that are so often not exercised by a lot of ‘Tweeters’ out there.
You know, Tweets like “Just woke up”. We’ve all let out a collective groan while thinking to ourselves, “who really cares???”.
While I like to think (fingers crossed) I’ve never been guilty of such dreary and banal Twitter dribble myself, I certainly have been on the receiving end of many a Tweet that has left me yawning and/or shaking my head.
The clever and entertaining folk at SuperNews! and current.com have put together a very funny short animation (see below) titled ‘Twouble with Twitter’, which pretty much highlights all that is wrong with the Twitter experience and sections of it’s user base. In a way, however, the video serves as a great little etiquette guide – just avoid becoming guilty of all of the points poked at in the 4:30 minute flick.
All I can say is watch it, laugh at it and more importantly – learn from it!
PS. If you enjoy this animation, make sure you check out more SuperNews! offerings such as the following:
