I've been trying Twitter out for a day now, and I couldn't really see the point... until, that is, this morning - when I think I finally "got" Twitter.
Twitter, it seems, does have a purpose. It makes a great little live web feed! I've signed up to "follow" some of my favourite blogs and websites - The Economist, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The Guardian, Boingboing, Slashdot, Engadget, Lifehack, etc.
Then, using Digsby, I can get auto-updates every time one of those sites puts up something new.
I can't see myself using Twitter for social networking - but I think it could work as a web feed...
EDIT: And now I've just discovered that Twitter integrates into Facebook - so both status-updates can be linked.
