Twit

I joined in the fun at Twitter last week. It's like blogging, only even more pointless. You only have 140 characters, so you can really only get one idea across, and not very well.

But it's like methadone for bloggers. You don't get the same satisfaction from writing a blog post, but it gets your ideas out in the tubes.

Reading twitters is just like reading blogs, only a lot less interesting. At first it seems more involving because most of the people twittering are doing what they're talking about at that very moment. But the lack of detail and artistry makes it a very unsatisfying info dump.

I really don't understand the appeal of twitter. What is so important that it must be sent out immediately? It just seems a bit too excessive and pointless at the same time.
