    Anybody on here use this?

    I could see how this would be cool when I'm traveling with friends. I wonder if you can send pictures to it from your cell...

    Has anybody found a way to make Twitter useful in any meaningful way (as opposed to simply "cool")? Lots of people I am associated with are starting to encourage its use, but darned if I can figure out how it is going to be anything but a time waster.

    It's good for those people that like to constantly keep you up to date with their lives...like having a new facebook status every 4 hours. So... I haven't found it too useful. There are some people that are entertaining... like Shaq for example. If you add him to your twitter feeds, he writes some pretty funny [censored].

    How does this compare with using something like Google's new Lattitude?

    As you can probably figure out from my curmudgeonly posts, those are not people I typically choose to associate with. :tongue2:

    Yes, many media outlets (nytimes, cnn, boston.com) are on Twitter, so I often go there first when there's breaking news.

    Also, I'm a geek, so I subscribe to a bunch of tech gurus' feeds.

    Plus, HotAmishChick is hysterical. :)

    I don't even give a shit what my own wife did at her job every three or four hours or so, and I genuinely love her. I cannot fathom even wanting to get random updates from strangers on the Internet.

    If you have an iPhone, download Twitterific or Tweetie.

    You'll be amazed at who you can find on there. Even Amber Alert has a Twitter feed.
