Twitter is easy. Twitter makes connecting with other people simple, without information overload. You choose to follow sources most relevant to you and are able access information via Twitter as it happens—from breaking world news to updates from friends.
Twitter asks one question, "What are you doing?" Your answer must be under 140 characters can be sent via the web, instant message, or mobile texting. The answers to this question are mostly rhetorical—do not expect a response when you send a message to Twitter.
The result of using Twitter to stay connected is that you have a sense of what people are doing but you are not expected to respond to any updates unless you want to. This means you can check out updates when you have time without ANY demand of your attention.
Twitter is what you want it to be—receive a lot of information, or just a tiny bit. It's up to you.
