Twitter Fever

Catching the Tweet Bird

When I first came across it -- I couldn't see the point. Who really cares what me or anyone else is doing? It reminds of those co-workers that are at your desk talking all day while your actually trying to be productive.

As reality would seem, Twitter does matter and there are now oodles of unexpected twitter remixes and mashups that are now (instantly) sharing in the success.
