What's Up With The Twitter Explosion?

I understand why technophiles love twitter; it's a service that just away messages and status updates. Honestly, that's why I used Facebook and AIM. It's a good product.

However, a bunch of politicians were using it during the Not State of The Union speech, and at a serious time like this all I can think is what the hell is wrong with these people. I hate to sound like my dad, but I pay these people with my tax dollars and I would like them to pay attention to the president and not write "Woohoo" when they see Ruth Ginsberg or snarky comments about Nancy Pelosi.

Last November, I was just getting on Twitter and actually found some of it quite useful during the political season. Doing searches on "Obama" after a debate showed a variety of responses that included the search word in its Tweet. In short, you could survey how people in Twitter land were responding the debates.
