Any twitter users here? I find the whole thing intriguing.

I twittered twice and forgot about it. :D

I know a Linux programmer who twitters constantly. It's fun reading what he's up to, but it's rather a time consumer for myself.

I enjoy its non-committal nature. Not like a blog that I have to sit down and write or a myspace/facebook page that I have to upkeep. 140 character posting with my text messages, anywhere.

Still, the only people I know of that do use it are internet super-egos like leo laporte and alex lindsay. and of course Obama and other people using it for promotion or other purposes.

I'm on Twitter, although I'm not sure why. My Twitter name is BeeVee23. It does seem like a very self-absorbed passtime... ;)

I've been on it for a while now Baz, and I think the same. I haven't uninstalled it from Fx, but that's only because I haven't got around to doing so.
