CNET is running opposite perspectives on social messaging service Twitter.


Caroline McCarthy is writing in favor of the service…

The beauty of Twitter is that, unlike a full-out blog, there’s no obligation to be philosophical, thought-provoking or grammatically sound. Because it doesn’t require that kind of extra effort, it’s great for people like me who want to jump on the social-media bandwagon but don’t have the time to set up something elaborate on WordPress.

Meanwhile, Elinor Mills goes on the attack…

I don’t understand the need to spew out personal information and random thoughts to the world. And that’s just what Twitter is designed for: to be a medium through which you can share stream-of-conscious babblings with your friends and with anyone who has time to lurk on the Web site and read inane musings of strangers.

I gave Twitter a solid two weeks and then suddenly stopped using it. I just ran out of things to say, not to mention the time to say it. While I’ve not abandoned Twitter completely – it will be interesting to use it at next week’s SMX conference – I just found it to be too much effort.

Anyone else want to weigh-in? Love it, hate it, just started using it, just stopped? Let me know.
