Almost invariably, when mentioning Twitter to a staunch non-user, the frivolity of such a service is summed up with a scoff and, "Oh yeah, that's great. 'Hey, I'm going to the bathroom now!' Pssh!"

Which, in itself, is a perfect summation of why those people can never use Twitter: They're hamstrung by a hackneyed lack of creativity. Of course, if only current non-users of Twitter were the first to join, there very well might be a disproportionately large amount of tweets centered around the commode. However, to everyone's benefit, early adopters helped shape the service into the global juggernaut of communication it is today.
