Twitter is weird

No kidding. Really strange.

I'm still trying to guess at its utility.

(forgot why I first visited there, but the random thoughts popping up...well...randomly made for random amusement...for a few minutes)

Oh.

Minor followup.

The "twitter" I visited was essentially a "google earth"-style view with the random thoughts appearing around the globe.

Yeah, go ahead and pass along the stereotype of Twitter I once passed on myself.

Go search "top_book" at my blog and see how many post ideas I've gotten just from that *one* Twitter user.

I'd damn well *pay* for Twitter now. Because if it doesn't start charging, the Depression 2.0 will crush it like a crippled ant.

does the world really need minute by minute updates of your psychotic ramblings and the mundane events of your inane life?

Student 'Twitters' his way out of Egyptian jail

Student 'Twitters' his way out of Egyptian jail
By Mallory Simon
CNN

(CNN) - James Karl Buck helped free himself from an Egyptian jail with a one-word blog post from his cell phone.

Buck, a graduate student from the University of California-Berkeley, was in Mahalla, Egypt, covering an anti-government protest when he and his translator, Mohammed Maree, were arrested April 10.

On his way to the police station, Buck took out his cell phone and sent a message to his friends and contacts using the micro-blogging site Twitter.

The message only had one word. "Arrested."

Within seconds, colleagues in the United States and his blogger-friends in Egypt - the same ones who had taught him the tool only a week earlier - were alerted that he was being held.

Twitter is a social-networking blog site that allows users to send status updates, or "tweets," from cell phones, instant messaging services and Facebook in less than 140 characters.

I still don't get it. What did he accomplish with Twitter that he couldn't have accomplished by texting these same friends? Is it just that he alerted a larger pool of people at once? What happens if the people don't have Twitter on when you Twitter them?
