My summary of Twitter is that it's for people looking for attention and want to feel that they're chatting with celebs.

only use twitter for getting better customer service..IMO companies provide better customer service when a problem is brought to their attention through twitter than via email.

Twitter is for stalking celebrities... Facebook is for stalking your friends. MySpace is for stalking underage girls and the rest of the internet is porn... The internet in a nutshell. ;)
