TWITter

Could someone please explain to me the value of Twitter? More specifically, what is the value of using LiveJournal as some sort of Twitter aggregator?

The minutiae of most people's lives just aren't that interesting, and Twitter's model is diametrically opposed to sustained narrative or even coherent exposition. I look at these Twitter-generated posts on my f-list and find them incomprehensible; they're too fragmentary, too link-heavy, and too filled with decontextualized pseudo-content to be readable.

So, what's the point of dumping a whole bunch of these Twitter entries into a blog and calling it a post?
