On Twitter

Are you on Twitter? Maybe you can help me understand its appeal because I simply don't see it. I don't understand the "purpose" of this site. I know what it does, but I don't understand why it does it.

Why is it necessary for us to know the whereabouts of everyone at all times? Isn't it a bit narcissistic of us to think that anyone cares that you are drinking your morning coffee, working out at the gym or anything else you may tweet about? Why do people feel compelled to share this type of information with the world?

I guess the Facebook status is similar for some people. I have friends who update their status with every breath they take - and often provide far too much information!!! I've seen couples have spats through their status messages, and I feel like a voyeur when these things pop up on my news feed (I promise I don't seek them out). Some things are just meant to be private!

If you tweet, please share why! I'm dying to hear a compelling reason not to hate that site.
