Adjectival forms aside, I have often wondered what Kevin Drum is wondering today, what's the deal with Twitter? I know people who use it regularly, but I've never quite gotten the attraction of 140-character messages. Yes, I could ask the people who use it, but I might seem dangerously out of touch. So I'm happy to have Kevin ask the question of his larger readership, and the first few comments are interesting, at least in terms of the kind of communities being built on top of it. I'm still not certain we should be entirely comfortable with the sound bite nature of it, but at least I'm beginning to think there's something there.
