"Twitter" has been creeping into the news recently and I know a few people who are Twitterers, but they seem to have mixed views on it. So, I was wondering whether anyone here has dipped a toe into the birdseed and tried it yet? Or what your opinions might be?

I'm a bit undecided. I can quite see that it's possibly "useful" for circulating a news story quickly... such as when that plane came down in the Hudson River. Apparently, within minutes, news of that had been Twittered across the globe. But on a more mundane level, would it really be all that interesting to know that a friend had just sunk their rubber duck in the bath? Or that someone else has just found a furball in their shoe, complements of their cat...? Hmmm... what do you think...?

Lots of twittering going on around here, mainly first thing in the morning and evening at feeding time.

I don't use it, but I know plenty people that do (and that number seems to be growing rapidly!). I can see how it would be fun to use, but I'd rather spend my free time away from the PC/Phone

There's an interesting bit on techcrunch regarding what happened during last month's UK snow. Also Telegraph.

No, don't think so... it's more like a "journal" to let others know what you are up to, using short messages. From what I've seen, it looks more like a shout-box.
