What’s all the twittering about?

With South by Southwest starting this past weekend, twittermania seems to have reached new heights. Ross Mayfield thinks it’s reaching a tipping point among the people he knows, and even John Edwards is twittering. So what is twitter? The official description is “a global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: What are you doing?” Some of the unofficial descriptions are perhaps more helpful – a micro blog, instant messaging on steroids, everywhere messaging, everywhere publishing.

I have to admit that I am not a twitterer, but it does seem to be addictive for the people who use it. Steve Rubel thinks that it may well become more popular than blogging. For some interesting discussion on its upsides and downsides, check out Chris Heuer’s post (and the comments). And if you’re thinking of taking it up, here are some tips.
