@lapdance The idea of social media is to connect with people. It's a 2 way channel. Twitter for most is just one way. You are right about statuses not needing more than 140 characters, but why do I need a whole platform just to post my status? It seems like such a waste of resources, and most importantly my time...

If I wanna express my thoughts about something or someone they are usually more complex than what fits in 140 characters.

Those few reasons are enough for me not to like Twitter :)

I totally agree. I really hope Twitter finally bites the dust. It was an is just a way of stepping backwards. 140 characters? Come ooon! That's just making our youth use gibberish shortened words, destroying the language. Don't get me wrong, I'm not an opponent of language evolution, but the way people are trying to fit a full thought into 140 characters is just sickening at points.

The lack of real and easy communication is also missing from Twitter, that Google+ makes so effortless. The @ somebody is really backwards, and there are no threads that people can read.

Google+ is way more mature even in this stage than other Google social tries like Buzz and Wave. The Wave project was really cool IMHO, but lacked the resources to work properly, now what I'm seeing is that a lot of those ideas are coming back in Google+, and I'm really happy to see that...
