Interesting.  My initial foray into twitter is more like the experience of a 
large party with lots of strangers, some acquaintances and a couple of friends 
mingling, rather than a relaxed dinner party with close friends.

As you move about looking for people, you listen to snippets of conversations 
here and there, being bored by some and being drawn to others.  Occasionally 
you find that you stop to chat with someone and decide to move away to a 
quieter corner away from the music and babble to have a more solid chin wag on 
some topic of mutual interest.
