To twit or not to twit?

I have heard a lot about twitter these last days... A new way to keep in touch with friends they say, a new way to share the "news"
Some love it, some hate it! Some find it boring, some find it very informative...
I still don't know
I just created an account over there. To tell you the truth - it hasn't made any difference to me!
My friends who use othe sites like blogger, facebook etc are on Twitter too! We "communicate" just the same... I mean what is the difference? What you write on Twitter could easily be an update on Facebook or a PM on MSN, Yahoo etc...
What do you think?

    I think the same of you...and what's more my friends are not on twitter!
    I dont' find it so innovative as the media says... Facebook is likewise useful, but with more users!
    Maybe it's only a marketing action.

    I have heard about twitter, too, and was invited by a friend a few weeks ago and joined. I also saw "follow me on twitter" for example on the website of Jamie Oliver and this made me interesting. Just today was a little report about twitter in the local news on TV and I think I have a little more knowledge about it now. What I thik is it is interesting when you use it with your mobile phone. This way you can send messages to twitter although you are not sitting in front of your computer. But for me, I have an old mobile and cannot use it for twitter. Also think I am more a fan of giving longer "news" via blog than only a few words via twitter.

    Δε βρίσκω ούτε εγώ διαφορά στο twitter.. Το facebook μάλιστα μου φαίνεται και πιο πολύπλευρο..

    I think it's good if you need to have some extra contacts outside facebook. You don't need to put photos, you don't need to publish extra information about yourself. You just write and that's what I like most on Twitter. Looks like Facebook, but it's more like sms fun than social network.

    I use it like a pubblic feed of myself for those who are not connected with me on facebook and want to have a more close contact with me, without even get in a friend list.

    Καλά, μετά από τόσες μαντινάδες, ακόμα αναρωτιέσαι;

    Του τουήτερ τα όμορφα πουλιά
    πετάνε στα ουράνια
    και βλέπουνε το facebook
    γεμάτα περηφάνια!!!


    Καλά, έχω ρέντα!!!

    Hey Thodora!

    well... to twit or not to twit? I had the same question in my mind for some time now but now I do use twitter, I like it a lot. I have the "twitterific" app. downloaded in my iPhone (you should totally try it, the lite version is free) and I can "twit" from wherever whenever (well we also can do that from the facebook app.). The thing that I like about twitter is the exchanging of news, I mean I follow Mariah's Carey twit and Sakis' Rouvas twit and the New Work Times twit and so on... So can go to the home page of my twitter and get to learn things that I wouldn't know with facebook. sure most of these news are useless (like the fact that a fly was sitting on Nia's Vardalos toothbrush) but some of them make me laugh! And that's why I like it! Oh and also, it's faster than facebook! :D

    so did I convinced you to twit or should I say more?
