      I hear a lot about how Twitter is a bad concept, because the character limit means things can be oversimplified, taken out of context, and posted without a source. I've never used it myself, but recently I've been wondering if it can be useful to me. For example, some bloggers I follow might post some insights on Twitter that they don't anywhere else, and help me discover other interesting blogs.

      Have you found a good use for Twitter besides as a social network or news aggregator?

      There are a handful of people on twitter I would like to follow, but I can't seem to make an account without giving my phone number, and those online phone numbers do not seem to work for me. I would also prefer a interface that cuts the crap, rather than twitter's main page full of suggestions and ads. Has anyone found a similar solution?
