Anyone here on Twitter?

Never really tried it and didn't quite (and still don't, really) get the idea behind it, but one of my co-workers recently joined it and was telling me about it yesterday. Seemed interesting I guess, so I figured what the hell, and signed up tonight.

A blog I read was talking about it. I didn't join, but i didn't read much about it. Let me know how it works and if it is worth it. I'm lazy, so don't type too much.

It's for people who are too ADHD for blogging.

I wasn't going to start one until I found a Firefox tool that allows me to post from the search box rather than going to Twitter, logging in, and posting. I'm going to try it out for a week.

I just discovered the whole "tracking" thing on Twitter. That's pretty useful (potentially) I think, and at the very least a good way to find other people on there with similar interests.

I started using it a couple weeks ago at the prompting from a friend. Yeah, it is mostly pretty pointless, but it helps to kill the boredom throughout the workday.

I see Twitter as a compliment to my blog. Just some one line random thoughts thrown out there that don't merit a full post.

I don't know why the people that I don't know who "follow" on me Twitter kind of creep me out, but they do. It's really not that much different from the blog readers I don't know, though. For the most part, I "know" everyone I follow, with the exception of one of my brother's friends and some dude who runs a site that organizes Richmond area blogs.

Works for me! lol

I still can't figure out what the hell it is though.

How about a group of us try it out for a week and see what comes of it? Post your linky.
