Twitter explains its reason for being this way: "Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?"

What am I doing?

I am writing about Twitter, and discovering that many journalists are adapting to it. There's a web site called Muck Rack to connect reporters who usually compete with each other.

It's appeal?

"What if you could get tomorrow's newspaper today?

Now you sorta can, by tracking the short messages on Twitter written by the journalists who do the muckraking for major media outlets.

Muck Rack makes it easy to follow one line, real time reporting."

They are not alone. There are designers, celebrities, musicians, venture capitalists, and even pets on Twitter.
