    I think Twitter is a good seevice but the reasnn it is getting so much hype is because the Media folks want to push it for their own interest. They want people to follow their compnay as well as their personal brands and Twitter gives them that platform. So this is why awareness is huge; free positive media like no one has ever had and this is creating huge traffic to their site — But know what .. most users just dont find it compelling when they get there as there are hardly any conversations – but just each bird sitting on a tree twitting away — no one’s listening, everyone is on their own agenda, So media, consultants, anyone who has to sell a product, service without a budget likes it ( we do too at http://www.telonu.com) but what’s in it for the average user?
