What is the purpose of Twitter?

I signed up. I looked at my page. I have 7 people following me. Why are they following me? I can't see any advantage to this unless it is the internet equivalent of texting. Or throwing spitwads. What do you do with it?

Uncle, it's social networking. They're 'following' you because presumably you joined to share what you're up to, and presumably, they care enough to know what you're up to.

Ugh! I was wondering what "twittering" was. I'll be sure not to sign on. It would creep me out to have someone following me around the internet.

Those would be spammers following you.

Twitter seems like it is going to be annoying beyond belief. Oh wait. It already is.

What did we say about following people around, Kreskin?
