Doesn't make any sense to me. I trawled around and see some people literally using it as some kind of IM-board: why would you choose such a cumbersome way to have conversations? So there's a whole bunch of RT and @so-and-so and back-and-forth-ness.
Others "tweet" every silly detail of their lives: I mean stuff like what they ate for dinner, how they are feeling sick etc. (There was even a series of "Tweets" on someone giving birth and the twitter-er "claiming" it as India's first Twitter baby!)
Some post equally mindless, inconsequential pics. I wonder what would happen to their irresistible urge to relay every detail of their lives if twitter charged by the character.
And all these words: tweeple, tweet, twitpic..I mean seriously, twitpic?
Then some post interesting links with a one line opinion and some intelligent or not-so-intelligent arguments ensue...now, if only those links and arguments were blogged: it would make it so much easier for non-tweeple to follow.
Some make witty comments on daily life that crack me up. Those are fun.
There are celebrity twitter-ers with fan-followings and people getting giddy with excitement when one of them responds to their tweets..
I admire the community-building aspect of any form of social networking, and twitter does that ..also think the underlying design is cool and simplistic- for example: hashtag a topic so that one can keep track of a trend, etc..quite cool without being overly complicated.
Other parts of it reek to me of exhibitionism and gross misuse and overuse- and has made me question everything I blog about myself: probably similarly exhibitionist, I think, but I maintain that I mainly blog to clear my head, vent, or keep track of events..and am still debating whether each of those defenses hold up for a twitter-er tweeting about stomach sickness or posting pics about great bargain deals they got while shopping at JC Penney.
