I think blogging is useful if it's being used for a particular purpose but microblogging seems a little pointless. It's like texting online but at least with a text it is aimed at a specific person, for a specific reason. Microblogging (at first galance) seems to be about sharing the minute and mundane details of your life with everyone. I might be wrong though!

I agree. It does seem more a social tool than a serious way of disseminating information. Can we be trying to be too cool rather than trying to keep the respect of our patrons? (especially if we do it badly!)
