This reminded me of what someone said about the difference between Facebook and Twitter (but regret I can't remember who):

 

Facebook is the place to go to connect with the people you went to schools with.

 

Twitter is the place to go to connect with the people you WISHED you had gone to school with.

 

It works for me!

The psychology of twitter is still evolving.... as I am finding out myself as I learn to interact with this new medium
