To Twitter or not to Twitter

I started to use Twitter and it seems like people either like it or hate it. What are your guys opinions?

I originally thought the concept was rather stupid, but since I started a few days ago, I am actually enjoying it. Personally I am trying to put a fun touch to my tweets so they are not boring like the "I am eating" that some people do!

I 'enjoy' my Facebook status, but that is as far I can take it. My feeling is that (for me) twitter would help me cross from 'meaningless chatter' to 'inane chatter'. While I see the value in Twitter done well, I have no intention of doing it well and no intention of 'sharing', so the signal to noise ratio makes it not worth the trouble.

I love meaningless facts! I been posting plenty on my twitter account. I am really surprised that so few ranchers seem to like twitter.

Maybe I can brainwash DOM and make him a stupic fact junkie too!
