No offense, but I don't think everyday working people are interesting enough for twitter.
This is what I used to think, I was strong against Twitter but it's actually an extremely useful resource. I use it almost exclusively for news and finding information from outlets that I would otherwise never know even existed.
For instance, I have a huge interest in advanced stats and have found dozens of really awesome stats guys that write for different teams across the league that I never would've heard about if it weren't for being linked there from other people on Twitter. That is just one tiny example but Twitter really can be a fantastic resource for things like that. Twitter is also where most news breaks.
For me (and most, I think) it's about that type of stuff much more so than the status update type stuff that you're referring to here.
