I have to admit that I generally don't see the point of twitter. Having said that though, this recent spell of cold weather has actually made me like it, mostly because the university I go to have been updating us on whether the uni is closed via twitter (http://twitter.com/UniofBath), and also the local bus company have been doing the same ( http://twitter.com/bathcsc). Much easier and nicer than constantly going back to a web page with the service status on (or going out and waiting for an hour for a bus that never turns up).
Personally I think it is things like that which will bring twitter to the mainstream, especially when combined with it's ease of use on mobile devices.
