What’s The Big Fuss With Twitter?

These days, you can’t browse the web without finding a link to Twitter. It seems everyone has a Twitter account… yes, I do to. The only reason I registered for Twitter account is to find out what the fuss is about.

For those of you who last got on the net in 2005, let’s just recap what Twitter is.

Twitter’s official definition of itself is as follows:

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

Wikipedia calls Twitter:

…a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets”.

Personally, I find Twitter to be a highly overrated product with minimal if not zero innovation value. In it’s very essence, Twitter is nothing more than a global short message broadcasting system sandwiched between the social networking loaves of being followed and following others.

After Googling more about Twitter; I’ve been converted from a skeptic to a die hard believer. I’m absolutely certain that Twitter is the best thing that happened to mankind since rubber tires. Read on to find out why.

Of course we all know that with the great powers bestowed upon us by Twitter; there are bound to be a dark side to this saviour of humanity. I have to be fair and list the bad along with the good.

Hmmm… now I’m not so sure about Twitter anymore. Back to square one I guess.

Will I be using it more? I don’t think so… I might as well use the status update thingy on Facebook; at least there’s about a million other things I can do there as well.
