Twitter Second Thoughts

I have been skeptical of the whole Twitter thing. I have been following it via Fred Wilson and Rands. It seems emblematic of the over-personalization of Web 2.0.

But Skype has a “Twitter lite” feature: you can plug in a short message that displays next to your name in people’s friends lists. Many of my friends use it to give an update every week or so: they are traveling, starting work, missing vacation. (You can see what I mean on the Skype website.)

I rather like it. Which makes me think there’s more to Twitter than meets the eye.
