I am not sure myself how twitter is valuable either, but I think lot of
people have high expectations of twitter, tryin to see it as a marketing
tool where you can measure ROI etc by way of clicks/visits generated. It is
intended to be a fun way of sharing status updates (getting to know what
people do in near-realtime) and a novel concept of getting to follow people
that may not otherwise 'friend' you on facebook.

As for QR codes, they look like harried blotches of ink to me, I am more in
like with the geometrical neatness of the barcode. They should have adopted
barcode for use in smartphones so you could for example, scan a barcode of a
product in a supermarket and immediately be presented with its origin.
