My wife uses it all the time, she has about 80+ followers. She tweets when she posts an entry to her blog or wants to let her Tweeple (yes, Tweeple) know about something she thinks they might find interesting.
Isn't it one of those apps that people use most often to tell their friends about every single little detail of their day that no one cares about? I.E. "I'm making toast" or "I just finished getting dressed"...
Hmm, anyone know about this:
Twitter collects personally identifiable information about its users and shares it with third parties. Twitter considers that information an asset, and reserves the right to sell it if the company changes hands.
Yeah, I get it now. Twitter is what you make of it. I don't tweet that much, but I follow tech sites, a few comedians, and some music folks. I hate how every internet social network always has a "flare up" fad phase then fizzle out, but such is life. I think "microblogging" like twitter will have a long life-span, in internet time at least.
