My Knysna Keep statistics which found me reaffirming my apathy to Twitter. How many can honestly say that they have relationships on Twitter beyond the love they have for themselves? Most people make opinions or advertise their business only to have no one retweet them?
I’m talking about the average user. The occasional celebrity gets reaction but the attention the media gives to it seems inappropriately out of context, a further devolution of journalism.

I felt negative when i joined Twitter, only adding it for the sake of search engine optimisation i.e. so as to make Google rank me higher. Is gaining a backlink worth the effort of occasionally responding to a Twitter comment that’s too small to ever be able to substantiate its opinion?
Delete Twitter? Move one step away from a superficial world becoming more superficial? That’s a BIG YES.
