For me, it's a microblog. It's not a chat (it's a push medium, not a conversation) and it's not a blog (I take care and time over blog posts and only post stuff that I think is of general, lasting interest). Twitter is for quick stuff that's possibly of interest in the moment. Funny links, new music I've just found, whatever.
