    The concept of “Twitter” is not clear to me. What is it?

    It is basically a tiny, tiny blog for your tiny, tiny thoughts. Any time I have a stupid thought that can be expressed in 140 characters or fewer, that’s where it goes.

    You can read it online or have the tiny posts sent to your phone or IM.

    A tiny blog? Looks more like a mobile messaging thingy or something along those lines. And why 140 characters? It should be a nice prime number like 139 or 149.

    Million dollar idea for free. Do a similar site that requires submissions be in the form of Haiku.

    A reiteration of the Twitter idea? That would be a twitteration.

    And a fight between Twitterers? That would be a Twittersnit.

    And a collection of the best twitterers, that’s the twitterati.

    And…(etc, etc)

    Why, oh why, did you drink the kool-aid?

    Next you’ll be purchasing athletic shoes and waiting for the comet!

    J- It can be either — it really depends on how you and your circle of people use it. I often just broadcast my own ideas, but then I also spend quite a bit of time replying to others, in conversation.

    S- Hey, nothing is stopping you from twittering your haikus!

    TimT, you are always the master of the wordplay. I tweet my hat to you.

    Timothy – Oh no! Twitter is the best. Everyone THINKS it sucks, until they try it and get addicted. You know, like meth. Anyway, my real-life identity has been on there for over a year and loving it.
