I've been hearing about Twitter for a while now. It's a communal micro-blog. In general, I have though it was ridiculous and constituted a way for people to waste time. Worse, I tend to value my privacy and a site that wastes time and exposes your privacy seemed really pointless.

That said, I keep hearing how good it is, and came across the following video that
makes a compelling case for using Twitter. I am still very unsure about it, but
the idea of maintaining links with far away friends seems good.

On the other hand, it's not clear whether (a) the idea will scale, (b) it's not merely suited to a few very web-oriented people, or (c) I am just a cynic. I'm there as gdudek.

Your opinion?


Sorry, this poll was not enabled for voting for a long time. That's finally fixed.
