http doesn't push, requires tcp/ip and the text comes in an envelope that "means" the same thing to every device--render me in your browser. Tweets have none of those limitations.
Perhaps I am over-stating it, but that's a risk I am willing to accept.
Don't confuse the technology with the users.
Twitter is a cross-platform, cross-technology way to push 140 characters somewhere wrapped in XML. That is going to be useful.
That's a good point, and that's why I don't use either service as a "cloud" repository for my images. I am just beginning to appreciate the wonders of twitter and I can see all kinds of potential there.

Wow, it's been two years since I abandoned this platform for Internet publishing.
I notice that I am currently moving from Multiply to Facebook, but I honestly don't know how quickly and/or completely I am going to migrate. Ultimately, I see this will all become one big XML matrix and it won't matter, everything will be possible everywhere, and be visible to everyone else, and you'll be able to drive using Twitter.
"This change eliminates an unnecessary regulatory burden that may discourage current Amateur Radio operators from advancing their skills and participating more fully in the benefits of Amateur Radio," the FCC said. The ARRL had asked the FCC to retain the 5 WPM for Amateur Extra class applicants only.

"Vista is an upsell masquerading as an upgrade. It is an overall regression when you look at the most important aspect of owning and using a computer: your control over what it does. Obviously MS Windows is already proprietary and very restrictive, and well worth rejecting. But the new 'features' in Vista are a Trojan Horse to smuggle in even more restrictions. We'll be focusing attention on detailing how they work, how to resist them, and why people should care", said FSF program administrator John Sullivan."
