Is it worth having a Twitter account?
I haven't been on Twitter since 2012 when I was a gay teenager. I use to have 3000 followers and interact regularly with my followers who were mostly gay men.
Is it worth having a Twitter account in today's climate. Is Twitter better or worse these days, or the same? Is it boring or less boring? What are your reasons for using Twitter?

Twitter became a sad and pathetic place for political grievances and lies. Twit Jack took too long to quell the infestation.

NO. No benefit. Just problems.

Thank you R1 & R2! I'm not going to bother going on Twitter again then.

I only have it to check twitter's "trending" a couple times a day to see what people are gossiping about - and to occasionally see what far away friends post/repost.
I don't post there myself, seems wholly unnecessary.

Trump used Twitter as a lightning rod for his lies. Now, it’s just a burned out platform.

OP, you have never been on Twitter and you were not a teenager in 2012. You are most likely 60+, obese and a right wing asswipe.
Go back to Parler. You don't belong here.

R6 yes I was. I'm 28. You say the same thing on nearly every Thread. I'm not right wing either. You are ridiculous.

I have an account to follow hoes since tumblr died.
I have another account on my phone just to follow breaking news and things like this.

I have an account under a fake name, for the sole purpose of looking at free porn clips. I've never posted anything, and when someone brings up anything stupid, I just unfollow. I'm there for the dick and cum shots.

R8 R9 yeah the collapse of Tumblr was annoying with their anti-gay porn ban. Twitter seems to allow it though.

It's too crazy now OP. It was good a few years ago but there are some VERY scary mentally unstable people on there who move around in herds like the borg. Many of them reside in an alternate reality from what I can see.
The porn is excellent though! Some of the best.

Were any of those gay men under 50? Girl, you was in danger!

Messing with Twitter is like getting a finger caught in a meat grinder nowadays.

R11 yeah I think I'll just use it for gay porn. I noticed you don't need a Twitter account to be able to view some gay porn accounts too, so that's good.
Thanks for the insight and warning on what Twitter is like these days! I definitely don't want any of that!

You're welcome OP/R14. Enjoy the pron!

It’s worth it to have. Whenever there’s something going on (power failure, real-time updates on a particular festival, etc), Twitter is a good place to go and do a search. I remember wondering if the shaking I just felt was a mini earthquake. Sure enough, people posted that it was less than five minutes after it happened. I also follow my area’s sanitation for updates on trash delays. This is really the only reason I have it.

R12 I remember gay men in their mid to late 20's, 30's and 40's who use to follow me in 2012, but I never had any guys follow me who were my own age. I probably was in a bit of danger, but Twitter for me then was my first exposure to gay things, so it helped me with my gay development at the time.

You're right but you don't need to have an account to search Twitter R16.

R6 got flamed but R6 is correct.
|by Anonymous||reply 19||06/09/2021|
R19 R6 isn't correct at all. I'm a 28 year old gay Australian male and I use to have a Twitter account in 2012. If you want to believe R6 who says the same thing nearly everywhere on Datalounge, then fine.

Not really, the trending topics are manipulated so you don't actually get trends or news anymore, or at least I don't. Sometimes I'll be given the same trending news topics for four or five days in a row. It's also overrun with trolls that they do nothing about.
The only benefit is that sometimes you can't access Twitter unless you have an account and are logged in.

OP, you just don't know when to stop. You are trolling and you know it.
|by Anonymous||reply 22||06/09/2021|
R22 I'm not trolling at all. I'm being honest.
|by Anonymous||reply 23||06/09/2021|
R23 just ignore the "you're such a liar/troll" posters. They do the same idiotic schtick in every thread.

Twitter has become a cesspit. Avoid avoid avoid.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||06/09/2021|
I use it for checking news and trends mostly, don’t post any more. I check it in the morning to see if something happened overnight.
My account is mostly news organizations so the stuff they select for me is news.

Twitter's awesome for porn clips. There is one account I love called Cakesboys69 that posts hot stuffs that get me in heat.

It depends on what you want our of it.
I follow people in business to keep up with what's going on.
I also follow politicians to see what they are saying.
You can find some hot porn on there too btw

Why create a Twitter account when you could just go for a swim at your local sewage treatment plant?

Getting your news and information from social media is not a good idea.

R30, I follow Twitter accounts of actual news organizations and reporters, like the Washington Post, the NYT, Time, commentators like Dan Rather, and local tv stations in a lot of different cities. It’s not “Proud Boyz Newz.”

It's really only good for porn. Especially if you're into any kinks that aren't main stream or readily available on porn hub. It's kind of the new Tumblr. Plus porn stars tend to interact with you on Twitter and respond to messages.

Twitter for porn! Well I never!!
