I have to admit, at first I didn’t really understand Twitter. Microblogging? Who cares? But then I signed up for an account, connected with a few friends, and — like most everyone else using the service — became addicted. It really is a great way to stay up-do-date and connected with friends and family. Heck, Gadling even has a Twitter account, but we’re still working the kinks out of it so it’s pretty quiet now. If you’re still unsure of what Twitter is, watch this.
TwittEarth is a nifty little website I just found that displays recent tweets from around the world on a spinning globe, Google Earth style. It serves no other purpose than giving you a new way to look at the data, but it does a great job at that. So off you go — sign up for a Twitter account and microblog away, or just stare at the pretty spinning globe.
