Ah, if the New York TIMES if for it, then who can be against it? David Pogue writes what is for me the first lengthy, populist exposition on the Twitter phenomenon. Personally, I wasn't able to function very well in Twitter until I picked up on a gizmo called twhirl: the social software client, and I'm still not that hot at any of it, or over it.
When you get up and running, tweet me. Some day, this might all make sense.
