Thanks to my friend Jorah (seen in my last post wearing the gloves I made him) I now have a slightly better understanding of how Twitter might be helpful. He started to "follow" me and then I followed him, and now I can view his posts in among my own! I just could not understand how it would function, since I assumed you would have to go in and out from your Twitter account to those of the people you are following. Now I understand how one might use Twitter to correspond with friends who are out and about, or maybe at the same conference. It probably wouldn't work that well for me because I won't be texting and IM-ing to Twitter, as Jorah does. But now at least I understand why some people use it.
