Sources: Google In Talks To Acquire Twitter (Updated)

This probably makes sense.

I have a Twitter account, but seldom use it. I do use the Twitter Search on Goo++ Compact Multi Search

I read the article and I can see why it may be valuable but I still don't get twitter. In 140 characters or less can someone tell me why people use twitter?
