What does it do?
Essentially, Twitter is a site dedicated to micro-blogging. Users engage in conversations and discussions via Facebook style status-updates (or what you might call public 140 character text messages). You've probably heard of it because Jonathan Ross seems to talk about it all the time on the TV and radio (@Wossy) or because @theSonicYouth have been sharing details about their album on there. You've maybe just read about it because, like MySpace six years or so ago, after a few years of being a little nerdy-network of tech-types it's now all gone apeshit.
would you like to tell us about all the other websites you don't use, because it's terribly interesting.
because it could be a bit long...
It's a device for making sad people feel included.
