Would you use Twitter?

I'm not totally sold in the Twitter idea, but I get it. People really like to be connected, and when you're interested in something/someone it is a convenient way to be in the know.
In the company I work for, Wellness Coaches USA, my manager is going to start using it for our employee group. I don't totally fit into the group because he manages all of the Con-way Freight accounts across the country....and my two accounts, RIT and Rotork Controls. So it will be interesting to see how relevant and useful Twitter is for me in relation to work.
In order to follow his Tweets I have to sign up on Twitter, so I did that---and it made me wonder if there's any use for it in wellness from my perspective.

I signed up to follow two "people" on Twitter so far, the morning radio show team I like and Sarma Melngallis who owns a raw food restaurant in NYC and

On one hand, I feel like people who Tweet may be a little narcissistic----I mean, who cares if you're waiting in line at the DMV? But on the other hand, I don't have to sign up to follow it if I don't care, and if I sign up I don't have to read it if I don't want to. It's not really different than a blog or Facebook, just shorter and more frequent posting.

So my question is---Would you follow a wellness Twitter?

I don't think I would ... unless it replaces something I already am involved with OR it becomes more widely used.

I'd probably follow it--it would be a good reminder to stay on track when I might not be thinking about my wellness.
