Question: what is the point of twitter?
Why are so many people using it?
Twitter, the mobile phone-based micro-blogging service, rocketed nearly 1000% in use in the UK over the past year according to industry analysts HitWise.
For the first time, the site has seen more visits than “social bookmarking” site Digg, which allows users to share links to sites.
Yes, there are strange people who believe that blogs are half useful. Yes, text messages are surprisingly apt for communication. By why mix the two? The nice thing about blogging is that you can type however much horseshit you want and have it out on t’internet. Why would you want to do that but within the limitations of text message size?
Anyone out there who uses twitter feel the need to fix me with an explanation of what it is that I’m missing?
