Oh shit! :lol:But for now, it's inspired the creation of a Web site -- Easier to Understand Than Wave -- on which users compare the online tool to other sometimes obtuse subjects (Both Ozzy Osbourne and the geopolitical climate of Southeast Asia are easier to understand than Wave, users voted, while Sarah Palin and Scientology are both more difficult).
Have people really become that addicted to it that quickly? :ugh:Users described feeling naked, jittery and upset without the ability to post on Twitter. When the site came back up, the top topic of conversation was the hashtag for "When Twitter Was Down."
I fucking hate Twitter.Enough with the updates, already!
This was the year that online social media exploded. That's good news for the future of Facebook, Twitter and the like.
But sometimes it just got to be a bit too much.
Members of Congress abandoned any pretense of paying attention to President Obama's State of the Union speech by updating their Twitter feeds as he was speaking.
There was the groom who updated his Facebook relationship status at the altar. And the women who tweeted during childbirth. [In fairness, the most high-profile tweeting new mom was Sara Williams, wife of Twitter CEO Evan Williams].
And that's not even mentioning all those friend requests you got from your grade-school teachers and members of your mom's knitting circle.
