I can’t for the life of me understand why Twitter is so popular. I’m thinking that maybe it’s because I don’t understand exactly what the service does. I thought that you create an account and get a special phone number you can text to, which then posts straight to your Twitter wall for your followers to see. Am I correct in this? If so, doesn’t Facebook already do this? Why have both?
Also, who the hell cares what my daily thoughts are? I can understand the appeal for a celebrity because it makes people feel like they’re somehow closer or personally know the celebrity, but for Joe Schmoe like you or me? Who cares?
