What is this crazy little thing called Twitter?

I have tried to figure out Twitter on my own for over a year. I still don't get it. I googled articles. I emailed people and asked questions. I paid attention when it came up in conversation in online forums. I finally screwed up my courage and set up an account, even though I didn't know how to use it. At some point, I asked someone I met in person about it. But I am still doing it Rong. So Rong in fact that I just stopped bothering to try.

So initiate me. WTF is this secret club about? What do you do on Twitter? How do you do it on Twitter? Why do you do it on Twitter?
I am trying to understand the technical piece of it but, more importantly, the culture or how you use it (er socially?). It doesn't work like an email list or forum and all my efforts to parse it out have failed.
MeFites, Hope me!
