Twitter - Convince Me?

Everywhere I go I keep seeing posts and talk about Twitter. It was a post called ”Get Your Content onto Twitter” that got me curious enough to check it out. I created an account, checked out TwitThis and twitterfeed and I was off and running.

I have to say, as first impressions go, Twitter has not made it into my good books. I find it full of useless, bit sized information. Sure you can find Digg and CNN on Twitter, but if I want to read Digg and CNN I can subscribe to the RSS feeds and get much more information quickly, instead of the little snippets.

Perhaps I just need to spend more time using Twitter before I can truly say I dislike it. After all it has not even been 24 hours. Is there a Twitter expert out there that can convince me of the value of Twitter and how to best use it?
