What is the Twitter Phenomena?

I am on Twitter. My account is caughtREDhanded. I have almost 1000 followers. I still do not understand what this is all about! I post a few times a day, and I follow a lot of other interesting people that find the "handmade" movement just as exciting as I do... I've read the definition of "twitter" on wikipedia (, and I still don't understand.

Perhaps it's another way for the people that love your creations to see more of "the artist." You know- get a glimpse into the mind of the artist. Perhaps it's another way for us to be even more "connected." I do know that there is a lot of junk out there as well. A lot of people that are using it to try and push fradulant type scams... I don't know about you, but I do NOT like having to deal with that stuff all the time. I can almost hear them now (kind of like those used car commercials for Kia)... "get rich in .06 seconds with this plan. Lose 800 lbs in 2 weeks eating all the food you LOVE.

So my question for you today is two-fold. Do you use Twitter? If you do how do you use it?

I do know one thing though. That bird they have is so cute. He looks a lot like my silver spoon birdie. Do you see the resemblence? Mine is a bit heftier- maybe he needs to pay attention to those weight loss ads!

You can see more pics of my birdie here:
