So what's all the fuss about. I've been asking myself the same thing but it's time to jump in or move out of the way. Literally, move out of the way and be bypassed :) I really only have my toes in vs. jumping in but at least I'm present. Just like Facebook (which I'm only accepting friends and not much else) I have an account for Twitter but no tweets from me yet. So if you haven't already dove, followed and tweeted now is the time to sign-up: http://twitter.com. The video on the homepage from Common Craft was my favorite part so don't forget to check that out.
Brent shared some resources with us and I wanted you to read them and post your comments in addition to your experience with Twitter:

"If you’re publishing content, undertaking online marketing, and looking to keep up with the latest trends in anything web related then Twitter should be featuring highly as a ‘weapon of choice’." For marketing, this is someplace we definitely need to be.
