I really, really don't get Twitter. It's utterly pointless.
How shit is twitter?!
Twitter is the first populist online service which people fall over themselves to declare "it's shit, that, it's completely pointless", because of course a service that provides one click links to people you went to school with is an exercise second only to splitting the atom.
However, Twitter hasn't yet shown its killer app in this country at least. Paying for mobile stuff seems a bit lame. I have seen people say their Facebook status was updated from Twitter so in that sense it may have more use but right now it's not really entirely useful. It's fun to read things people have said, though.
