Last night, I read Rochelle's post, Collegiality in Twitter (see [http://rochellejustrochelle.typepad.com/copilot/2007/03/collegiality_in.html]), in which she described two cases where Twitter was very useful for professional and academic work. It was quite a compelling post.

Then this morning, the thought occurred to me: ok, so Twitter can be used as a public, multi-user SMS...I see how that would be really helpful...

Well,duh - have some sympathy for a late-adopter.

Yeah, I can see some good uses for Twitter, but I don't actually have a space there myself (sorry for misleading you there Daniel). I don't think it's for me.

I haven't even set up a FaceBook space yet, which I am seriously going to do.The Teen Services Librarian at my main workplace loves it. And the other day, while covering a shift at a combined public/high school library branch, the Teen Services Librarian there said he answers several reference questions every day with students via FaceBook.

I agree, sort of, that there is value in twitter, but for some reason, I am still not all a-twitter over it.
