TwitterTwitter is one of those ideas that I originally was unable to understand. And while I still don’t fully appreciate it, I have started to understand why it has become as popular as it is. It is interesting to get little glimpses into the thoughts of people.

Blogging is like that, but with blogs, entries are expected to be longer and more thought out. It is more for a detailed analysis of things that have already happened or to tell of things that will come. Live blogging is a bit closer to what Twitter does, but even that still has a different feel.

Twitter forces you to be concise. That may be what draws me to it. I’ve never really been one to use more words than necessary and Twitter caters towards that really well.
