Is Twitter About To Jump The Whale?!?

I feel like I'm not supposed to like anything by Bay Area cRapper Mistah FAB, especially after the photo above. But darnit, this is catchy. Yeah, trolling the innanets for coochie is really 99', but Twitter's all 09'.

"Twiggas"? I had no idea it was that deep. Followers sounds a little odd, yeah, but "Twiggas"? Yeah, it's sorta dumb, but I like it, and it gives me another excuse to plug AverageTwitter.

The whole Twitter Phenomenon has swept the nation. In recent weeks, you can't turn on the TV, listen to the radio, or visit a single website without hearing mention of the site. It really reached the proverbial tipping point when my building's Dominican janitor sanitation engineer asked me if I had an account. This from a guy who usually communicates to other with words like "'migo'". So yeah, I think the end is near.

About a month ago, I signed up for both FaceBook and Twitter, just to finally see what all the fuss is about. I like both, but I think I finally get the whole point of FaceBook, after weeks of trying to figure out WTF? The sole purpose seems to be the pull up photos of girls you used to like in high school/college and stand in awe at how much they've "let themselves go". Before someone calls me out for being sexist, fall back ladies. As if you haven't done the same.

Still, Twitter has few of these advantages, and with no real business plan or definitive way to cash in and monetize, it's hard to see the appeal lasting past Halloween.

Then again, what do I know? I wrote off "this whole innanets thing" after the dot com bust.

Question: Do you think Twitter is about to jump the shark? What's better, FaceBook or Twitter? What do you think of "Hit Me On Twitter"? Ashy or Classy? Why are you still not on Twitter?
