    Texting on the internet. The message you send can only be 140 characters long. Pretty stupid actually.

    Re: Twitter

    In a nutshell: people's entries answer the question, "What are you doing?"

    I like it. It's NOT text-messaging; if that's what you're using it for, that would be incredibly inefficient. It's micro-blogging: keeping a blog (personal journal) where the entries are quite short. You can do it from anywhere- computer, phone, iPod, anything with an internet connection.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Twitter

    I like it, because I get a lot of good links from the people or groups I am following, but I find it really tough to post what I am thinking in the allowed amount of characters.

    Exactly. It's like Facebook status updates on a grander, more global scale. Yes, you can reply to people (like a text), but that is more the exception than the rule.

    Re: Twitter

    It's yet another way for people to interact with each other without that socially awkward act of face-to-face talking.

    Not really. It's more like ODBC for the Hive-Mind.

    Re: Twitter

    I've been a tweeter for a couple months now. I use it way too often. Really like following media outlets and having links to various stories and just checking out the ones I'm interested in rather than going to each individual website.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Twitter

    I use it to follow news. It makes forums and blogs seem slow to get news. People are posting twitter messages and pictures from their phones all the time.

    Re: Twitter

    It is actually very powerful now with CNN and other places using it as well. It can be a good way to find out information. I have been tweeting for about a year now, I use tweetdeck on my computer so I don't have to go to the actual website, which is nice since tweetdeck automatically updates every minute.
