Captivated by Twitter

If you haven't checked out Twitter, then you probably can't relate to this. Why would anyone want to receive one to two sentence updates on what their friends - or even people they don't know - are up to? It's a cool way to stay in touch and share your thoughts with your "social sphere" without actually being in the same room or on the phone. It's like getting a status report bit by bit instead of in one long conversation. Granted, some of the posts are of the "who cares" category, but mostly it's fun and sometimes even informative to read what others are up to or thinking.
