    Not sure why it triggers people so much. I have an account but I think I've only ever tweeted for contests. Other than that I check it occasionally to see whats up with some musicians and stuff.

    Twitter's always been a cesspool.

    A poor platform for anyone looking to have discussions or a way to vent their thoughts. Twitter's character limit, and it's extremely strict, yet biased system will allow blatant racism remain without punishment as long as it's against white people, or establishments. Even if it can be considered a death threat, or violates the system.

    I use it for business a lot, I've met a lot of people in the industry using it which is fun. I purposely don't tweet anything controversial though, I put on my work face. Nobody wants my opinion on BLM for example.

    Never used twitter before...
    Was never really on my radar or something that appealed to what I like to do online as far as social media is concerned

    It's also a Social platform hardly anyone uses in the Netherlands.

    I'm with you. I despise Twitter because it has further dumb-ed down social interactions and discussions (which already happened with other social networks since they are echo chambers and meme-factories) but I can understand its allure to people... Not much to do, I wish journalism distanced itself from social networks though, it's rather stupid to fill articles with tweets and FB posts, as if every TV-report would consist of street interviews alone :/ Not saying they should ignore the people but perhaps start doing real journalism again.

    It one of our main forms of broadcast-based communication. The quality of it's content depends on the people using it.
