Is a Pushmi-pullyu?

Pushmepullyou I think I'm in love with, the essence of Everything is Miscellaneous made flesh*. So I get a little upset when I think someone is abusing it. Except that I'm not sure whether they are.

Brian Kelly has been exploring what Twitter is for (by trying to break it!), and similarly, I feel I need to get my head around what is for. Is it a pull technology which I use to search for information, or is it a push technology my network can use to publish information?

Clearly, the social features of mean that it is both, but the question I'm facing right now is how upset should I be when my colleagues bookmark links on to try to nag me?

*If you need an explanation, try this.
