  • It's kind of like the status part of facebook, or the thought bubble here - you literally just update what you're doing. I think it's stupid and pointless. Yes it's free. You follow people, and people follow you. No games, no profiles, just status updates.

  • If you have an online business, it can be a good way to promote it. I use it to follow other businesses and watch for sales and giveaways and updates on blogs that I follow. And yes, it's free. The messages or "status" updates that you post are called tweets. I like it, I don't make a lot of tweets, but it's another way to connect with friends and businesses and whatnot.

  • It's only pointless if you don't know how to use it.

  • Rofl.

    No, you don't want to be on it.

    Yes, it's free.

    And let's not forget, all tweets are being archived in the Library of Congress. :D
