Have you read the various discussions and articles on the concept and  
desire for "ambient awareness"--the desire to develop a kind of sixth sense  
about what our friends and colleagues are doing/thinking/observing, so in a  
sense we feel more connected to them? So, just like you might be chatting on 
the  phone with a friend or relative and say you've just had a delicious Thai 
chicken  sandwich as a way to share something trivial, but still socially 
bonding, the  same can be done over your Twitter followers, writ large...
