ponytail: if you don't feel the need to share - in less than 140 characters - every minute detail of your every living hour - what you're thinking, what you're doing, what you're eating, what you're watching in an inane stream of consciousness that mostly says "Look at me! Listen to me! I'm here! I'm important!" - then I'd leave Twitter well alone.

Having been made curious I had a look at Jim Martin's (pca editor) twitter. There was one that caught my eye:

'Quote of the day (from a reader who emailed in) "I have had a good look on the internet and most people seem to be idiots"'

Thank's for all the replies I was just curious but obviously the general opinion is a waste of time best left alone.Maybe I should just uninstall it and forget about.

"Maybe I should just uninstall it and forget about."

If you have registered, then Twitter will have your email address, and possibly send reminders.

Thank's so what do I do

  spuds 10:51 13 Oct 2014

Very little you can do now. At least with Twitter the reminders are not a regular nuisance, or at least that's how I have found it.
