Well, there's no denying that lots and lots of people hate Twitter and find it useless. That's because they're probably following their aunts and co-workers, who tweet things like "Going bungee jumping for the first time tomorrow #YOLO!!!" And in truth, I used to hate Twitter, too, until I decided to only follow people who made me laugh. It turns out that's a lot of people. Even more shocking, Twitter has served as a launching pad for lots of young comedy writers. As hard as it is to believe, people land comedy writing jobs and even book deals based on successful Twitter accounts. Accordingly, Twitter might be a silly time-sucking app, but for many, it's serious business, demanding proper etiquette.

There's no book you can buy on it. You learn it by being a terrible Twitter person who has obnoxious private message conversations about tweeters you dislike while whining about other tweeters who hate you. Don't be a douchebag: SAVE YOURSELF.
