Twitter is a simple web site with one simple purpose: to let people know what you're doing, and to get an idea of what other people are doing.

You can update Twitter with your status through their web site, or via SMS or IM. If you have Twitter set up with your cell phone, you can receive updates whenever one of your contacts updates their status.

When you send Twitter a mobile text (SMS), it gets sent out to your group of friends and also saves to your Twitter page. Your friends might not have phone alerts turned on so they might check your web page instead. Likewise, you receive your friends mobile updates on your phone.
