Default What is a Tweet? And other dumb questions

I may be out of touch with the newest computer stuff.

A few simple questions.

What is a Tweet? Is this replacing blogs and websites?

Should I have a Facebook account? I never wanted one. Just like I never wanted the S4 type of phone.

I know couple things about IT but Facebook never interested me, I don't like the way it works, how it looks and of course whole jewish connection..

Only reason to use it comes from peer pressure "because everyone else is there" type of stuff, I try to avoid using it as much as possible.

Also you can see complete idiots having those new smartphones, probably never doing anything productive with it, just following new trends created by judeo-capitalists.

Twitter is just system interface to publish short messages (tweets) easily, its not meant to replace usual blogs or websites.

Twitter is great! Read this thread for how it works and what it is:

http://vnnforum.com/showthread.php?t=158353

Basically it's a limited space instant messaging system but instead of being private, it's seen by the world.

It is absolutely invaluable for breaking news stories. You get instant eye witness reports from people who haven't learned the journalism PC "white man with suntan and accent" lesson. There would be only half as many #1 threads without Twitter.

More dumb questions.

I am using firefox 27.0.1. It seem to hang up and run very slow.

Does FireFox suck now?
Should I use a different browser?
Which one?

A tweet is the noise a bird makes after it is shot with a pellet gun.

Google's Chrome is typically a lot faster. But you have to decide if you trust Google. Opera is decent too.

Does Firefox hang when you're doing anything specific? A lot of the time it has problems with adobe flash player, are there a lot of flash videos on the page you're viewing when it freezes? Do you have a lot of extensions installed? Do you have a lot of tabs open generally?

It just acts slowly or choppy whenever I try to browse. It started about 2 months ago. Nothing specific like watching videos or anything. It will act up with just one session open. I don't have very many extensions either.

I had googled the problem and found some other forums where people were complaining about the same issues. No solutions.

I was just wonder if anybody else had problems.

Maybe I should switch browsers. I have no specific loyalty to Firefox.

I may try Opera.

When I try to up load images on here using my iphone-

Manage attachment, browse, upload. All good. Then I try to close MA page to get back to my post, it wont allow it. It works on home PC but not my iPhone.

Not to worry, I can post link images using the option link in MA provided by this forum.

Fred,..... try uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling an older version that worked for you... or reinstall the same version you are running

Check out this link for older versions http://www.filehippo.com/download_firefox

Go back to a Firefox version that was okay to use before your trouble. You did say about 2 months.

Firefox versions are dated.

Click on older versions to the right and page through release dates.
