I've never really understood the whole Twitter thing.

Don't know if I'll use it, but I've got unlimited-everything on my phone...

Likewise, I never really got the point. Seems rather egocentric. Not that blogging in general isn't, but twitter seems even more "pay attention to me right now" and attention-deficit-disorder than the rest of the Internet. Like we need less thought and less coherently expressed positions.

Fits with the "party like it's 1999" web 2.0 meme, though. And the general overshoot mentality.

Twitter is its own thing. For some it's about attention, but for most it's about networking and information. For example, there is a Worldcon Twitter account. Now imagine 1000 fans on Twitter all following the Worldcon account. Aside from it being a good way to find other fans, anyone who wants a taste of what's going on at Worldcon can check out the followers list for Worldcon and see quick sound bites of things going on at Worldcon, from all over Worldcon. Because Twitter has a 140 character limit and is ideal for phone usage, people are far more likely to be both succinct and post more often, making for an amazing live feed. There are many other uses, but suffice it to say Twitter is it's own beast and is still evolving and has already evolved more than LJ, Facebook, MySpace, etc. It's quite fascinating really. Worth trying out IMO.

I have Twitter, you found it already. Don't use it as yet, but wanted to grab my name.

Will be considering using it a touch more in '09 for promotion work, I think.

I see you already found me. I know real hard.
But I don't use it much. I never got it to run on my phone, so it's pretty pointless. I usually use LJ or Facebook.

Oh, wilw is Wil Wheaton, in case you want to follow him. :D
He's a lot of fun.

I'm on there but not real active at the moment, as 'suzdal' found and followed you.

I'm also, not surprisingly, thirdworld on Twitter 2.
