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.
As well as blogging here, I'm also one of the editors on bloggingportal.eu - a new way to read blogs about EU affairs. We aggregate the content from more than 300 blogs about the EU! If you're at all interested in Europe, then check it out!
I'm living in Italy and taking European & International Studies at the University of Trento. My current mission in life is to learn as much as I can about Europe, her past, peoples, foods, cultures, crimes, triumphs and her place in the world. I want to know the whole shmeer! Warts and all!
