Why are so many people on Twitter? Seriously.

I have my own version: Raw News.

Because it's the only place that I can get insights from pro cyclists shortly after they're done each stage of the TdF, on the same page as comments and updates from TdF commentators, on the same page as comments and updates from the CEO of Livestrong, on the same page that I get updates from ...

If I were looking for a newsfeed, I wouldn't use it. But I'm not using it as a newsfeed, I'm using it to see personal commentary from people who are already involved in the news I follow elsewhere.

No clue. I have no desire to use it. I mean, I only just signed up on Facebook this last weekend...

Because 140 characters is easy for people. They don't have to write an entire blog post.

So it is like texting.

Sure there are other reasons.

There's some presumption that blogging should have some content or at least be entertaining.

Twits can post their 140 characters of narcissism without any of the guilt.

Kinda like just commenting to blogs rather than blogging yourself. :-p
