I use it mostly for work to get out updates for things that are going on or to comment on articles, news and sports.

Twitter is another Social Media sight... instead of "friending" you "follow"...

It's a single person account, that let's you say what's in your mind in 140 characters or less "tweet".

People respond to you by "re-tweeting"

I guess that describes it...

Much like Facebook - I don't tweet either.

I do once in a while read other peoples tweets to see what they have to say.

i.e. A lot of Celebrities tweet... so if you want to know what Bruce Springsteen had for breakfast - follow him.

Watch the Video link above and decide.

Kinect is very different, it is a motion capture sensor, so essentially you are the remote.

The Wii U plays all origianl Wii game, but has new games that will enable a 2nd screen option with the new Wii U controller.

It also has Wii Tvii - which allows you to stream (HD) from Netflix, HuluPlus, etc... including live tv channels, and allows you to connect to and control your PVR. You can also mark shows as favorites, and recommend them to friends via Facebook, etc...
