Have you ever wanted to receive text messages from total strangers, often in a language you can’t understand, so you can know exactly what that stranger is doing?

You have? Well then Twitter is for you. The latest webfad example of a technology platform developed in anticipation of a way to make money off it is here for your free exploitation. Twitter members send short messages via phone, instant message, or the web the answer to the question ‘what are you doing RIGHT NOW?’

And the rest of us can read about it. I for one, have no idea what to make of it, but it seems to be getting some press, as people see it as a bellweather of the next internet trend or at least another step down the blogging road. A group blog for non-blogggers.

I haven’t joined. I like the blog, but I don’t know quite how much I want to ‘twitter.’
