    Twitter desperately needs to find a way to jumpstart its user growth, or it risks becoming irrelevant.
    The company’s share price has sunk by about 10% today, testing its lowest levels since it debuted on the markets (although still well above its actual IPO price), simply because it user growth is slowing significantly. [More]

    Could Twitter become a Facebook holding?

    I'm kinda surprised by Twitter going down. I wouldn't be surprised if Facebook bought it now.

    There was a time when I pretty much abandoned my facebook, and focused on twitter. I only returned because an old forum I used to be a part of folded and moved to a facebook group.

    My thoughts when I read it. I thought Twitter's growth was exponential. I just wonder if the FTC would allow that purchase.

    The stupid thing is too hard to use! Its not like sending a txt for example where you just compose a message like you would on a computer and send it,I grasped that concept in about 5 minutes.Twitter is all #this and @that. WTF,I can't understand the stupid donut thing.I may not be Einstein but do consider myself to have half a brain,but Twitter is stupid.:rant:

    One comical thing about Twitter it certainly has helped change how the younger user views the English language. "I think you are great" has become "I think u r gr8". Or may it's #gr8? I dunno.

    @UsersofTwitter.....do you think Twitter will ever abandon the 144 character limitation? I ask only bcuz I don't c how a restriction like that is a selling point.

    I'm more of a follower than a user. I just follow more or less for news...

    The 140 character thing doesn't bother me.

    Yea I have never sent a tweet myself. I have retweeted like 2 things. I only use it to follow people.

    too much re-tweeting that makes twitter hard to look at.

    I don't use it either so retweeting is a foreign topic to me.

    You know you can shut certain people off from the retweets?

    Twitter is so big here in Mexico that the government wants to ban it.

    I didn't realize I was in North Korea now.

    The article explains what us dumbshits experience when we try to use it, get frustrated and go back to youporn.com where searches are straightforward.
