  • Twitter did threaten my blogging for sometimes, it was so addictive more then the famus Facebook, more active, you get lost in the sea.

    I had to quite Facebook then Twitter and stick to my creativity of blogging.

    Most people lost their creativity with Twitter, its more like chat room then micro blogging.

    I do miss it, but I love real blogging.

  • Twitter killed the blogging buzz, killed the creativity, killed the voices of people.

    Twitter is addictive, more of information spreading fast, like virus. More like H1N1 virus, attacks everyone who is weak infront of blogging.

    We lost creative men and women, God help the rest. Why don’t we trun our blogs to twitter, micro blog it, we may not get quick response ( @reply ) or share it ( ReTwitt ). But it worth keep people visiting your blog and becomes populer.
