The Twitter Arena

When social networking came into existence, they came in droves but as always, there were/are a few who stands out, Friendster and MySpace during their heydays and now Facebook. Contrary to the olden quote "Money makes the world go round", it's now "Social Netwoks makes the world go round" *grins*, seriously, do you know anyone who doesn't have an account? Anyways, as it conquer and took the world, another way of keeping in touch surfaced, this time it came in small packages - Twitter and Plurk.

I digress, is Twitter turning into a battle arena for people who engage in word war? Shall I list a few examples to prove my point?

  • Kristine Reyes - Sarah Geronimo (though Sarah kept on the silent end)
  • Alessandra de Rossi - Cristy Fermin (though the latter used her program instead)
  • Pauline Luna - Ampalaya Anonymous (various young actresses included)
  • Angelica Panganiban - a deranged Azkal fan
  • Nonito Donaire - Chino Trinidad
  • Manny Pacquiao - 50 Cent (though Pacman is still mum)
I'm a member of both, I sign up for Twitter when I opened my first public blog three-four years ago but I was never active, up until I went gaga over Korean entertainment *lol*, I was a plurker a year or so ago, I used to plurk like crazy, aiming to reached nirvana and that 100 karma points but then, as usual, I grew tired of it, I told you I have short-attention span. At the moment, I tweet when I want to, to get in touch, to rant, to release pent up emotions that nobody will listen for sure, I used to tweet nonsensical stuff, to get attention *lol* but I grew bored and tired of it, too. One thing I am sure though, I haven't used Twitter to fight, to nag or to go into violent and non-discreet discussions, I guess, that's the difference between private and public figures eh.

Is Twitter turning into a battle arena for word war combatants or is it already?
