AdAge may hate Twitter, but as a lover of all things "social Internet," I admit my addiction. Twitter is like the simplest, fastest form of blogging -- an up-to-the-minute answer to the question, "What are you doing?" in 140 characters or less.
I've seen a lot of industry friends on Twitter, as well as some smart young recording artists who are using the immediately popular site to draw traffic to their MySpace pages. CNN is putting headlines up (sometimes), and the Edwards campaign is involved, too.
It has its shortcomings -- no search (yet), no way that I've discovered to view archives (yet) -- but overall, it's just fun and easy. It's gotten a lot of press already, and growing at a lightening-fast pace.
It may create a lot of (harmless) noise on the Web, but this new "nanoblogging" play will likely make a great addition to MySpace, FaceBook or some other online community. I expect to see lots of partnerships. And a lot more community growth.
Look for me on Twitter here. And, here are a few screenshots, just for fun. (My homepage + a 404 page)
