Other than a physics institute that I follow b/c I love to hear of new developments in science, Twitter is altogether useless for me, and I haven't even checked those tweets in a couple of months. How can something be so worthless yet worth so much money?
It seems you are failing to get the real value of twitter. I don't follow my friends, that would be a waste of my time reading "I'm hungry" tweets. Instead I follow Rock Paper Shotgun, for example, who tweets their articles and news, and is better than an RSS, or just opening their site to see what's new.
Too many people follow friends and such just out of friendship, and end up with a cluttered screen. Knowing who is worth following makes Twitter a good tool.
