Following to many people is un-useful and being followed by too many generic people, is un-useful too. On one hand it's important that many people come in Twitter, but on the other it has been designed for small groups. If all the people on the web would register, you would just have the entire Web by itself.
And then you would need back Google!!!
We are just a the beginning of the Real Time Web and Twitter it is just the first player.
PS: I totally agree on how Twitter will influence languages and behaviors. In Italy, where SMS have been a massive tool for years, also before many innovations (like the way to send more160 chars).
