What's Your Twitter User Type?

When you use Twitter, eventually you will fall into a user type. You may do it consciously – i.e. you joined the network for a specific reason and purpose, or you may just grow into a characteristic set. Let’s take a (lighthearted) look onto the types of twitter users and you can decide which you are.
