Lol, yeah, there's a bit of that on twitter. And I've been skeptical of twitter for that very reason. Seems like a bulletin board and instant messaging system combined into one. But I'm seeing how it effective it can be on passing on information on topics of interest for like minded individuals.
Definitely prefer going to message board or forum, as it is more organized. And you can type more that 140 characters.
Plus, there are dancing bananas.
