    Default Anyone use Twitter?

    Twitter* has been a hot topic in the tech blogosphere for awhile. I haven't yet tried it but if anyone of you do, what is the appeal? if you use it, what do you use it for? how much more connected are you?

    As an experiment, I have just signed up..

    Tweet me if you can...

    I guess the answer is "no."

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    Twitter I consider to be a inferior form of a time waster...

    Plus my list will look absolutely boring since I do pretty much the same things every day.

    Yes... so after using it for a couple weeks here is what I think of it.
    In some ways it's like a new way to capture thoughts or ideas that would have previously required a small notepad

    Two unexpected uses for it:
    - couldn't find my phone so I posted a tweet via my laptop. a few mins later my friend called it and I found my phone.
    - yesterday I was at a conference and in the afternoon they posted announcements to Twitter which included mentions of a location change and cancelled sessions

    Although I don't have a large number of friends using Twitter (as a result of me starting to use it I was able to get 2 of my friends to use it), if we were all using it and getting texts, it helps people get in the loop by having what amounts to a text messaging conference / social broadcasting. for now I'm going to continue to use it.. I think I'd prefer using it as a more unique medium to communicate with friends / social things rather then monitoring tweets from people I don't know or care about.

    so..anyone now using twitter? part of the reason I use it more now is because so many of co-workers/managers/etc use it, and I prefer it over email for the small stuff.
