Poll: Twecipes, or Micro Recipes on Twitter

Twecipes: Love Them or Hate Them?

With the onset of microblogging phenomenon Twitter comes the twecipe, an ultra-condensed recipe on Twitter that tells followers how to make a drink or a dish. Users such as cookbook, tinyrecipes, twixologist, and, of course, twecipe offer up suggestions for your next meal using 140 characters or less. Although I love the brevity and simplicity of the twecipe, there's also something to be said for recipes that list detailed instructions with exacting specificity, sparing no detail that might affect your outcome. Still, I could see myself following a twecipe in a pinch. What are your thoughts about twecipes?

Never been on twitter but shortened recipes sound like something I'd use. Would not be much help for complex recipes or those with many ingredients though or beginner cooks.

quick tips would be helpful, but a whole recipe in under 140 letters...?

This would only be helpful to people who have no idea how to prepare the most basic foods (like boiling eggs, or potatoes). The only other recipe of this length that I could come up with is sandwiches.

I can honestly say I have NEVER been on tweitter or any page thereof. Though I like simple recipes, I prefer a detailed bulleted description so I know I won't screw up. Love me my betty crocker recipe book :)

Not a fan (at all) of the Twitter concept.It's a pointless technology that will be obsolete in around 1-2 years from today.I never understood the purpose of a "micro-blog" or telling the world what you are doing, this exact and/or every minute of your life. I've never found anything of use on Twitter, whether it be a recipe or any other relavant information. It's usually not enough details and/or every word is abbreviated, and hard to figure out.

I like them. I haven't tried to recreate a dish from just a twecipe, but sometimes it gives me a good idea. And hat's off to anybody who can say something meaningful in 140 characters instead of just posting "I'm bored and I wish it was time to go home from work."

Um, no. I don't care for Twitter anyway, so no surprise there.
