Help Me Help Myself

Please someone, for the love of all that is holy, stop me from joining Twitter.

I've held off joining for so long, and while I was tempted in the past, I was able to resist those urges. However, my resolve seems to be wearing down, and I fear that I may succumb and join the site, which I foresee having dire consequences on my normal blogging output which, let's face it, hasn't been stellar for quite a while.

You have to remember that I held off buying a PS2 for the longest time... and then when the dam burst, I ended up going totally mental. I don't want that to happen again, but I know that if I join Twitter it very well could. It might not, but it could, so I have to think in worst case scenario terms here.

So I need to hear some Twitter horror stories... what I really need is a support group or something, but some really obsessive, fail whalin' stories should probably get me to not join this weekend at least.

When you come aboard, and you will, you can find me here: http://twitter.com/PoppedCulture

Is Twitter the next greatest thing? Meh. But I've got no horror stories either. Claim your real estate before somebody else does.

you don't need Twitter and you know it. It will keep you far too much away from all the other obsessions.

I have to be honest, I've thought about joining, but then again I sometimes almost use my msn 'private message thingie' as Twitter, just without being able to read it back if I don't have a conversation with someone before changing texts.
