Sounds promising.

Being someone that has not tweeted, what do some of you like about  
it?   It is basically a news feed sent directly to your device,  
though as I understand it, the tweets are limited in size.  Is that  
about the geist of it?

Really just asking for conversation sake.  I have seen people  
addicted to twittering, so like with Magic the Gathering, I have  
taken great strides to avoid it entirely.  :)
