Question that I keep forgetting to ask anyone: What exactly is Twitter? I think it is a feed reader that does your laundry and cures cancer, or something because it's ubiquitous.

It's not really a feed reader in the broad sense, since it only reads its own RSS. It's more like an LJ, complete with friendslist (which would be other people's twitter feeds), that you can update by text-message. Or from the website or a client, so in that respect, very LJ-like. The nifty thing about Twitter though is the text-message aspect: your posts are limited to 180 characters or so, so you have to be pithy. (And you can send them easily from your phone, unlike the headaches of trying to code and post LJ entries by phone.)
