Why Twitter?

What’s up with Twitter? What’s it all about, really? The best description of it I’ve heard was a “microblog.” Basically, instead of writing an entire article, you’re coming up with a quick headline to talk about what’s going on in your life, or what’s on your mind. It’s based on text messages, which are limited to 160 characters per message, so Twitter messages are limited to 140 (to leave 20 characters of room for addressing information).
