To Twitter or not?

I tried Twitter a while back and hated it. I tried again and hated it. I just couldn't seem to understand why I needed to know when my BFF was taking a tea break. Or why she needed to tell me. Now I'm addicted to Facebook and I kinda get it. But seriously, what's the big deal with Twitter? Someone please tell me one good reason I should saddle myself with one more social network thingy that doesn't give back to me. I've begun to Digg, Digg, Digg and nada. At least some times I do get a wave of new readers Stumbling in. Blogrush is a dud for me. I feel like these "tools" are just a way for me to attend the cool kid party and wait for the cutie across the room to notice me and ask me to dance.

I read that many of y'all are Twittering and hitting pay dirt for it, but seriously, I just don't get it.
