Hey, Newgrounds? What do you prefer? Twitter or Facebook?

In my opinion, Facebook looks better, but I don´t have an account on it. Twitter is great, but I cannot Tweet everyday, because it´s so annoying. My last Tweet was on November. Yes, completely depressing.


It's not about the destination.
It's about the journey.

I prefer facebook for connecting with friends and family. Twitter seems like so much more of a douchey site, so I made a joke account for my dick, it tweets in caps lock and always rhymes.


I dropped out in the third grade, and spent all my time at the arcade.

It's Facebook for me, because nowhere near as many of my friends use Twitter. I've never used it personally, but it seems to offer a lot less than Facebook does.

I like both, but I would have to say I like Facebook a little more.

From what I know about Twitter, it's like facebook minus everything except status updates. And most normal people don't use it.

Twitter's great for reading what people are doing, but I don't update mine. I've just subscribed to a bunch of comedians, musicians, and webcomic artists so I know what they're doing. The webcomic artists often tweet links to little doodles they draw and stuff which I like.

Facebook.

I don't use twitter because I'm not really interested in what famous people are doing.

I gave that some thought. And I'm totally switching sites now.

Facebook is good for communicating with people you know IRL.
Twitter is good for broadcasting opinions and publicising stuff you put online, like software.
If I had to choose one over the other, I'd go for Facebook just because it's more 'useful'.

I like Facebook best because there I've got all my friends and family. Twitter is like random blurbing.

I like twitter more. if some of my friends were using twitter it would be pretty much perfect. right now though it's more useful for keeping up with what famous/newgrounds/unfamous but still pretty good at what they do people are up to.

They are incomparable. They exist to serve different functions, and are thus used by different people with differing goals.

I've never used Twitter because everyone that I feel the need to connect to uses Facebook and not Twitter.

I honestly see this being Facebook for everyone.
Twitter is okay, but it's not that great. All it is, is a slight update on somebody's life.
Whereas Facebook has all sorts of other information, and more things to do than on Twitter. I do have a Twitter account but it is more dedicated to my music than anything, so anybody interested in my music follows me there, but I also have a few other things for my music and use those a lot more.


Yeah, whatever.

FaceBook due to people actually using that. Maybe if more people at my school started using Twitter I would use that, but until then I am going to stick with FaceBook.

what I like the most about twitter is that if there's something you can't do on the site itself there's more than likely an app for that.
