PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
For me, there's a large "what's the point?" aspect to it. I fail to see how significantly more useful or interesting than a blog or forum. But that's probably because I still see almost no point in texting.
I guess this is what happens when you are almost always within spitting distance of a real computer. Typing 140 characters at a time into a tiny device seems completely superfluous.
If you want to see the real power of twitter, use the search feature. It's the absolute fastest, most organic way of getting up to the second info about just about anything.
Or, you can use it to start jokes, which turn into a weekend of partying with Luke from 11W [via internet celebrity status].
It can be a horrible time-suck, but as you said - the search feature is good.
And also it is good for jokes and flow charts.
It does spread information (correct or not) very quickly. It gives great access to celebrities and sports figures (players, coaches and writers). I really like, you do have to take it with a grain of salt, but it's fun. I'm somewhat egotistical though, so yeah. Speaking of which, hit me up on Twitter @BirdmanStephen.

I just use it to follow sports writers and bloggers for instant updates.
Oh, and Kanye West. Pure entertainment.
