    Still, all of my comments are insightful, witty and constructive. Just giving something back to the community, etc. etc.

    I blame Stephen Fry.

    As the poster boy of England's pseudo intelligencia, if he does it, thousands will accept that it is in fact a reasonable thing to be doing and not as RM so perseptively and succinctly established, pure shit.

    Most people I know who use twitter use it as a convenient one-to-many messaging system for their friends, rather than for tracking "celebs". It's a rather handy little service for that.

    More like an odd, distributed, slow-motion version of IRC. I'd be fucking pissed off if my friends spammed up my email inbox and made my phone ding every few minutes with vaguely inane banter, but I'm perfectly happy to read a bit of it (or contribute) every now and then if I'm stuck in a queue somewhere or whatever.

    My mates are quite happy to spam my work email inbox all day long at work and I am more than happy to reciprocate :)
