Save Twitter From Inanity
Twitter is the premier microblogging service, but its usefulness
is being compromised by the sheer volume of useless and uninteresting
Part of the problem is Twitter's tagline, which is incomplete.
What are you doing?
It should really be:
What are you doing? Does anyone but you care?
Does the world really need to know what you're doing
every five minutes? I doubt it. You're not that important.
And indiscriminate use of Twitter may cause you unexpected problems
down the road.
The Twitter Pledge
Do your part to banish inanity from Twitter by taking
the Twitter Pledge:
"I pledge to only write
informative or funny tweets and to refrain from posting irrelevant
If enough people take the pledge, we may yet be able to save
Twitter from itself. Act now before it's too late!
Go Public With The Pledge!
Publicize your affirmation of the Twitter Pledge by following
on Twitter. Show the world that you plan to follow the Twitter Pledge!
The Twitter Pledge is brought to you as a public service by Eric Giguere
