Facebook is a better tool for connecting, but Twitter is really good too. It's also more safe; Facebook requires to put your full name (on Twitter you can just put an initial) and Facebook also allows you to put your street address down. The only reason I highlighted safety as an issue is because you can post your location with each tweet. Users might get ticked off at the 140-character limit, which can either create thinking (how can I make my tweet into only 140 characters) or brain-dead tweets (I was going to post something stupid but CSM said I was spamming, LOL). All in all a great social network; definitely worth the trouble for some inappropriate content (you can find quite a bit of sex, violence, drugs, alcohol, and profanity). And it can yield some nice users and even a little bit of educational value.
