Initially I wanted to write this as a comment to TwiTip.com's Twitter goals post, but it grew and grew and felt more like a blogpost of its own.
I use twitter to be a popular twitterer. That's the only goal I really have.
But there are hidden goals of course. Like just _what_ comes from being a powerful twitterer? Well there's the personal branding thing, everyone's doing it right now and it's useful for a number of things pretty much everyone knows. Another thing powerful twitterers have is an instant readerbase, have a new project? Announce it on twitter and instantly hundreds of people know about it ... that's a very powerful promotion tool.
Last but not least, is the knowledge aspect of being a powerful twitterer. You find out many things, very many things you find out near instantly and a lot of that information is in fact very good, useful information. The old saying goes "Valuable information is only valuable while it's fresh". Ding ding.
So yeah, twitter goals, I say don't go overboard, just go out there and have fun. The rest will follow.
