    Seems that nobody understands the use of it, but Twitter was the fastest growing website in february 2009 (lol).
    Maybe its the same as with facebook-styled stuff, avoided it for years and eventually gave in because of social pressure :)D) and still dont know what to think of it.

    I used it when it was ASOT 400 and you were able to use it for requests and things. Its good if you use it like a chat room, not much else.

    Well, is like a forum thread but they called it in another way and people found it revolutionary and interesting.

    Or am I missing something?
