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.

I still can't get what the big deal is about Twitter

I woke up
I scratched my butt
I took a dump
I ate

and other totally useless and no one cares information ...

It is RSS light. RSS for dummies.

But without almost any decent content.

Twitter is for narcisists and their stalkers. And the only other usage i have found is for the news media to copy from since they do no actual investigation any more. Just look at CNN, it seems they are more interested in their twitter account than the news.

So, everybody's happy, right? Attention whores get their attention, stalkers get to stalk. Pretty successful service if you ask me.
