Twitter is a handy, well used by more than rockstars, social media outlet that has plenty of practical uses. I post one message and whomever is interested sees it. I don't have to type a bunch of emails to get my message to many people. There currently 190 million "twits" using the service.
I'm not criticizing the people using Twitter per se, but more the people posting mundane messages and such.
I've seen quite a few funny tweets from famous people, but for me it won't be useful for some time at least.
