  3. I wondered what the point and fuss was until recently. I have started using and filtering by hashtags to track a particular theme e.g. swine flu, I've also explored Twhirl and Tweetdeck which makes following easier too. Twhirl is neat because I have an RR Twitter and a 'real me' Twitter account and I can track them at the same time. Twibes is good for belonging to a specific community too
