Twitter has caused my girlfriend to not have a god damn conversation with me when we're eating... or driving around...

We used to sit and people watch... now she's worried about falling behind on "the twitter"

swear to god i'm going to go and change her password and e-mail address so she can't get into it anymore.... arg.

I've found that it might be fairly useful if you want to advertise something that is going on...but the stuff people tweet is so boring most of the time that I can't stand reading it.

Wow she really likes Twitter, I have never really been able to get into it.  My extent of using it is to follow news, technology, etc... I just use it as a sort of RSS feed.  Or as Sal said to advertise something... like CampusDakota

Twitter is less to worry about than Facebook.  No worries about who can see what, or finding information that was posted somewhere obscure, or having to deal with loads of email or spam or invitations.  I think I like it more (in theory) because it is akin to blogging rather than a do-all website like Facebook.  Then again, I dislike it because people think I want to know every little thing about their lives.

My experience is partly because I don't have a personal Twitter account, so I'm following people who I don't personally know.  If people I actually talked to were on Twitter, it might make it a great deal more fun.

Twitter's main advantage is the privacy controls like you mentioned.  And for some reason I see them as more innocent than facebook... I wonder why?
