    Twitter all the way, I hate Facebook, you get sucked into it, and then you never look back, unfortunately.

    I hate Facebook and kind of hate twitter.
    I do have an account I pretty much don't use on both though.

    I prefer Facebook, but Twitter is pretty cool. I still have to learn how to use it better.

    facebook is run by amoral executives who's goal is simply to collect as much personal information about you, then resell to advertisers. That is their business model. They do not care about the user at all, as made apparent by the incredibly difficult and ineffective method you must partake to delete your account, as well as the convoluted privacy settings (which they only just recently revamped, due to mass public criticism).

    The site is horribly insecure as well. Several times a year we become aware of high-profile exploits which have historically revealed private birth dates/private photos/private messages/and passwords.

    Even without all these flaws and atrocities, I still see little point to it. If I don't care enough about someone to either call them, email them, or talk to them via IM, I really don't give a shit about what they did today or their lame party photos.


    All this being said, the two are not really comparable. Twitter is a microblogging platform while facebook is a robust social networking solution. Two completely different things.

    Facebook has too many Noobs on it while Twitter has too many celebrities.
    I hate both but like twitter a bit.

    Never had Twitter or Facebook, so can't really give an opinion about it...

    Though I'd probably prefer Twitter.

    i dont have a twitter but i do have a facebook which i barely ever use. i always saw twitter as not really social networking but a kinda one way conversation unlike facebook. cant say i care about either though.

    Facebook, definitely.

    Although I agree with Urza, I have to say I only add people on Facebook I really know, and since I don't use IM anymore, it's an easy way for me to communicate with them (even if it's just a simple 'Like' every once in a while).

    I hate both. It's annoying when so many people in school go crazy about facebook, twitter and all that shit. Seriously, it's your life, nobody cares about what you do.

    I find Twitter incredibly stupid and pointless. It's pretty much just Facebook status updates.
