Raise your hand if you've hopped on the Twitter bandwagon, then lost interest, got bored, or just didn't get it and gave up.
You're far from alone, and far from forgotten.
According to a Reuters report Sunday, so-called "Twitter quitters" are a big concern for potential investors as the social-media company expects to make its public debut on the New York Stock Exchange in mid-November.
In a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, 36 percent of the 1,067 people surveyed who have joined Twitter say they don't use it, with 7 percent saying they closed down their accounts. Facebook fared better, with only 7 percent of 2,449 Facebook members not using their accounts, and 5 percent saying they deleted their accounts.
The survey, conducted online, has an error margin of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
Dan Niles, chief investment officer of hedge fund firm AlphaOne Capital Partners says, "Twitter is a great service, it's still got growth in front of it. But in my opinion, I would say the opportunities are less than that of Facebook, and it has to be valued appropriately."
Twitter and Wall Street also hope to avoid the problems that plagued Facebook during its IPO. A USA Today report Friday says the NYSE will perform a system-wide "dry run" Oct. 26 to prepare for the Twitter IPO.
The Facebook IPO on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange was hit with multiple delays and failures, resulting in a $10 million for Nasdaq from the Securities and Exchange Commission.
With the company's profile higher than ever thanks to the impending IPO, why do "Twitter quitters" stop using the microblogging service, despite the attraction of mingling with the high-profile people using it?
Reasons given in the Reuters/Ipsos poll range from confusing Twitter terminology (hashtags and using RT for retweet, for example) to boredom to not enough friends using the platform. The company has even admitted that "new users may initially find our product confusing" in the IPO prospectus, according to Reuters.
By adding new tools and features to enrich the tweeting experience, and serving up topics targeted towards users' interests and locations, Twitter hopes to minimize the amount of former users leaving the service.
Despite the challenges Twitter faces in retaining users, some analysts say the company is still worthy of investment.
Pivotal Research Group analyst Brian Wieser told Reuters investors need to understand Twitter's somewhat limited appeal and be okay with that.
"The practical matter is that this is a niche medium," Wieser said. "Their appeal, they will never be as broad as Facebook."
