    isn't that included in our data plans?

    and i was talking about people constantly letting the world know their every move, i could see its use for school and journalism and thats about it.

    personally i don't see the need to do what facebook, myspace, are already doing as well as instant messengers. i just don't understand its point of existence.
    OK I don't understand why everyone has such a small view of society. They think everyone is like themselves, we forget that there are so many different people with different likes, opinions, etc. You don't need to understand twitter or want to use it. The whole point of it's existence is choice. Some people understand it, find the need to use it, and love it. Love the fact they can talk to people all over the world about the same topics they love. I have talked to Alli who is in Alabama I think, if it weren't for twitter that probably would never have happend. Also there is no need for people to bare their souls but it is all up to the discretion of the user and the viewer. They share what they feel they are comfortable sharing. If you're following and you find it a waste of time then you can un-follow. So it's all about choice, I like it because it's an easy and quick way to reach a large audience, and the ability to share pictures or whatever.

    So how you liking Twitterific so far? I think it has THE best looking interface on the market, but SimplyTweet has them all beat.

    i'm really digging it! i think my problem with twitter the first time i tried it was i was using it on the computer, and that was a little bit confusing. but using the iphone app, or any app i guess for that matter is a different story. do they make apps for desktop? hmmmm, a new quest!

    Best desktop client (on the pc side, at least) is TweetDeck. Tweeting from the web makes Twitter look boring and pointless.

    I use Twitter for two things:
    1) Short updates to friends on where I am or what I'm doing. It also feeds to my Facebook account via Tweetsync. This lets me keep in touch with friends and acquaintances.
    2) Tracking my brewing times and events. I set my laptop up in the garage and send updates at each step. I can then check it on my PC and update my logs.

    I use Tweetdeck on my iPhone and PowerTwitter plugin on the desktop.

    Give TweetDeck a whirl on your desktop. It's a standalone client. I tried a few plugin types when I first started tweeting (2 years ago?) like TwitterFox...I don't like keeping my browser up all the time. TweetDeck notifies you of what you want, when you want it. Being able to sort tweets by column is probably what lead to Twitter creating lists on the website.

    I have "all tweets" in a column I rarely view. Instead I look at the columns labeled "kids," "local tweeps," and "nerd tweeps."

    Also check out Blu for Vista and Windows 7. I love that one.

    Also for the Mac, EventBox is the best one.

    I've been meaning to, but haven't got around to it. I like it on the iPhone since it can only show one column on the screen at a time and then with a flick it goes to the next.

    I recently had to restart my @gabebourland twitter account and lost all my followers/followings. But it is almost fun making new friends as well as getting the old back. I have been using Twitter more and more and drifting away from facebook as the constant youville,mafia wars,poker chips and other crap is just way too annoying. Twitter is clean, simple and to the point, plus I like just adding random pics here and there. Tweetie 2 seems to be my favorite Iphone client so far. I had tweetie v1 and this one is just improvements. Now off to follow some of the people who have posted in this thread.....
