The greatest rapper of all time, such a waste of an amazing talent. This man could rap the phonebook and with his flow he would still sound amazing.

Wow, yeah this makes perfect sense. Why haven't I done this?
 
How is it possible that I have lived this long without knowing this trick?

Thanks for enlightening me +Alison Fairclough!

My thoughts on Twitter vs Google+

I have occasionally used Twitter since I joined in 2009  (Earlier than 96% of other Twitter users http://goo.gl/Ugsn6k) . I struggle to understand what all the fuss is about, Twitter seems to be the cool site because every celebrity microblogs on there. Do that many people really want to read about every aspect of a celebrity's boring life in 140 character chunks?

Twitter feels to me like millions of people shouting into megaphones, shouting over each other trying to be heard and get attention but the only people that become popular are the people that were already celebrities. The only true genuine connections on Twitter, are to people that you already know in real life. For a global communication platform that is pretty poor. Twitter isn't a good space for people to get together and properly talk about a certain subject. The hashtag feature was supposed to be the way to join all the conversations together but is rarely used right. A hashtag should be a way to search a topic, #ManchesterUnited is an easy way to find everyone everyone with an opinion of the latest developments of the football club. #IReallyNeedACrap isn't useful to anyone. Everytime I see these type of hastags i’m reminded of this video: http://goo.gl/9BUqJ6 

The way that Google+ auto hashtags posts is amazing, it can tell if you are talking about Manchester United and it automatically adds that to your post as a Hashtag, the computer algorithm does all the work so you don’t even have to think about it. You just say what you want and Google+ makes sure that the right people can find your post. Google+ can even hashtag your post if you don’t even type a single word but instead upload a picture, it’s that advanced. As great as this is Google+ has a better way to group conversations called communities. It’s very simple, if you're interested in baking you can join a baking community, if you're into football you can join a football community, even better if you don't want to bore everyone with your tales of the best way to prepare a birthday cake these posts don't have to show up on your personal profile page. No yelling or shouting to be heard over the noise, you are actually talking to the right people about what you and they love. You can easily see what engagement each post gets by the number of comments and +1’s you get, you can see what many views your post gets or even how many views your content gets, i’m currently at 1,146,707 views http://goo.gl/0uTZHC

The most annoying thing about Twitter for me is it’s a nightmare to follow a conversation, I’ll read a single isolated tweet at the top of the stream which means nothing to me because it’s out of context. I have to scroll down pages and pages and read the previous Tweets they posted just to get what the top Tweet was talking about but by then the punchline has been ruined. It’s like playing the American game show Jeopardy and thats no fun without a big cash prize. The 140 character limit stops people from properly expressing themselves, they can’t say what they fully mean without writing everything on another site and linking to that (Like I have done here). You can't share with a small group of people, on Twitter it’s a Public post or it’s a Direct Message so Twitter isn’t useful by itself. Sites like Facebook have to be used in conjunction with Twitter, here are my thoughts on Facebook http://goo.gl/e3TuZr

Google Plus provides all the tools that you need, want to write a lengthy blog post? Want to quickly share a photo to friends? Want to share a joke with the world? Want to video chat to relatives? this is all achieved on the same, single site.

If you use Twitter and love it, good for you. Maybe i've been using Twitter wrong this whole time? Maybe i'm out of touch, maybe. I’m just saying give Google+ a chance, join a few communities, circle some interesting people, upload a few pictures, you never know maybe you'll prefer it to Twitter? I know I do ;)

Lots of valid points here; my biggest issue with twitter is all this 'retweeting' that doesn't interest me or have any relevance to me. Although there is the 'resharing' option on G+, its a lot better as you can aim it at the audience you think are interested rather than just anyone. That way everyone sees what is interesting to them.

I'd have one with a bus driving up just so people would stand up and look confused when nothing was there.

Got to re share this again, this is my sense of humour all over and really makes me want to prank someone with this.
