The long-awaited day has come.

Twitter, the 200 million user microblogging service, has filed for its initial public offering. Fittingly, the only public acknowledgement came in the form of a simple tweet.

"Long-awaited"? Wait, people actually waited for this?

Must not have a lot going on in their lives.

They're called investors.


Well, I wouldn't put my money in twitter, that's for sure. Mainly because I've never thought much of it, just a silly idea of letting people post 1liner craps for free that got fashionable and I still don't see much promise in it, and certainly not a good ROI in the long run. The initial few months could be interesting though, but after that... They might still have a few years of fun until nobody will care anymore. I stopped caring about 5 days after they launched.

I use twitter to follow industry trends and plant blog links... does a wonder for traffic. Nobody forces you to follow idiots.
