I'd resisted Twitter for a long time until Neil Gaiman pointed out that I could tweet "I've updated my blog" and that to me seemed useful. And I've since found it to be a nice relief valve for blogging -- trillian_stars and I went out to a bunch of art galleries last night and bought a painting and then spent some time goofing off in alleys with the iPhone (see below) and while it wasn't earth shattering enough that I felt the need to sit down and write it up in a way that would thrill and entertain, it was exactly the sort of thing I didn't feel guilty updating Twitter about half a dozen times.
Twitter's not a substitute for blogging, and it's not going to kill blogging, rather it's an accessory. Properly used the two complement one another, allowing people to be reserved and thoughtful when applicable, and frivolous when necessary. As far as I can tell, it's largely erased memes from LiveJournal and the one word posts ("Sigh") have gone away as well. Meaningful interaction hasn't gone away, it's still here, but your blog no longer has to function as one stop shopping.

(And it's fun watching William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy tweet back and forth about dinner.)
