    According to the Internets!


    Okay, I'll rephrase: the feature-set and API won't suck. But I'm still skeptical re: the user-interface. If it still has adverts in message windows I'll be sticking with WM4.7

    • I value my time
    • I'm not prone to obnoxious fads
    • I don't care about anyone so much that I'd read microblogs
    • WM4.7 works fine, why replace it?

    Internet wannabe: Someone *who wants to be* someone so accustomed to "Internet style" communication that he doesn't bother formulating coherent messages. Wink

    Someone who isn't well versed in nettiquette, Internet culture, how the basics of the Internet and WWW work on a technical basis, and numerous other intricate details.

    That said, if a person is sincere and polite about their own lack of experience, no-one has a real problem. Otherwise things go downhill quickly.

    Nobody here (as in, where I live, not here on C9) uses Twitter. Everyone uses Messenger, though. So the choice is simple.
