Yes, facebook is who I meant on the privacy issue. My bad. Sorry.

As far as Twitter goes, ProSportsForums called it correctly on the "false information from non-credible and unverifiable sources" which have plagued it lately.

Might be hard to tear some folks away from( face reading... sorry Book) lol.

Yes, there are actually people that can be paid to "post up" your board. I've seen the services out there, but I really don't think it's worth it.

In a lot of ways I think that Twitter is actually helping forums. It gets the word out faster for people trying to start them up, and helps others from being able to monopolize the system.

Twitter has never worked for me. You need to have many contacts on twitter to make it work.
Forums are a way to find those contacts for people.
So there will always be a reason to run forums.

can u prove that mathematically? the benefits of Twitter can be applied to many situations, how can you explain that two different systems born in two different decades are now a perfect match?
