The world, in 140 characters

Twitter is great for finding out what your friends are up to. But one professor is using it to create a microcourse in world religions. Sample Tweet: "Islam 140: Allah told Gabriel told the prophet Muhammad (PBUH): Just 1 God, pray to Him 5x day, give alms, fast, hajj to Mecca. Submit! Ahh!"
WSU has a lively twitter account. Let's go see what the top item is ... a link to photos of a football uniform unveiling in the Tri-Cities. Other links range from Native American education to Anita Hill to a comprehensive guide to pet care.
We're curious. What do you think of Twitter? A symphony of information, or just white noise?
