We do this for many reasons. Some of us are compulsive tweeters. Some of us consider it a badge of honor, that we're fully exploring the tool. Some of us want people to come and join us. And some of you want us to just shut up about it already.
All are valid points. Even the last. :)
But sometimes this tweating (tweeting + eating, get it?) can have immediate benefits for the tweet-or. Take the case of Julia and Kabuki, recounted on Tyler's blog. Short version: Julia live-tweeted her experience inside Kabuki and received free lobster. There's more to it than that, but since this about Twitter, I thought I'd pay homage to the 140 character limitation.
One word of caution: don't tweet out what you wouldn't say out loud. They're listening. :)
