Personally, I can't see the point of Twitter.
Let's see what everyone else thinks in their moments of procrastination by answering this question.
Twitter is a marvellous addition to social networking and a wonderful means of keeping up to speed with the latest developments, unrivalled by RSS feeds and and checking source websites for updates. Discuss.
Stephen Fry does it and thatmakes it seem very, very interesting. I followed this thread and have joined, but every time I try to access soemthing on the site it tells me it's too busy so I can't make an informed response. I've kind of given up trying now, although who knows where procrastination will take me in the future.
Twitter was central to a course called 'the digital researcher' held by Vitae and the British Library earlier this month. The idea was to explore how to use twitter and other web 2.0 in your research. I've written some of it up as this month's PGR Tips: http://www.vitae.ac.uk/CMS/files/upload/PGR%20Tips%20issue%2040%20digital%20researcher.pdf. Happy reading.
