Seriously. Explain Twitter to me.

This was a conversation that I had started with someone on Sunday (a determined Twitterer).

Either she was simply a bad spokesmodel, or there's something in my brain determined not to Get It.

Can someone please explain why Twitter is supposedly so awesome to me?

And I'm inviting you to pull out all the stops. Tell me what tools/uses/wonderful things Twitter has and is good for. I am open to being convinced despite my heavy skepticism.

Confession: I sekritly think that Twitter is for people who don't know the concept of "personal boundaries, plzkthx."

I'd also like to add that I'm utterly ambivalent about the Twitter feeds that are showing up with increasing frequency on my Flist. I don't read them because I just don't care. If they're not under a cut, I'll scan them and every once in a while I'll see something interesting, but otherwise...meh.

I do admit to being annoyed that some people on my FList have opted to go all Twitter feed all the time. Yeah. I dunno either.

So, seriously. I know a few of you are Twitter-heads. Explain it to me. Seriously.

Random drive-by strangers are, as always, welcome to comment on public posts. The more unique points of view on this, the better.

Pee Ess — People who hate Twitter are likewise more than welcome to comment. That includes people who tried and hated, and people who hate the concept in toto.

Talk to me people. Your curious operator is standing by.
