Whatever is pure, whatever is lovely

Twitter

Posted on: October 12, 2007

OK, I keep reading about Twitter, and I hate not knowing what stuff is about, so I looked it up. According to Wikipedia, it is “a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) via SMS, instant messaging, email, to the Twitter website, or an application such as Twitterrific.” Apparently you’re supposed to update it several times a day, and it sends these updates to all your friends, so they can know what you’re up to.

Fine. Now for the big question: Why? I have some very interesting friends, but I am sure that most of their days are spent doing fairly mundane things, much like mine. Have you been dying to hear the details of laundry day? Can anyone help me understand Twitter’s appeal to anyone older than say, sixteen?
