Resistance is futile

So. I joined Twitter, but I seem to be incapable of doing anything. Reading the FAQ just confused me further; possibly I'm too stupid to hang with the cool kids. Does anyone want to hold my hand and help me figure out how to make the thing work with Jabber or LJTalk, and how to add friends (I tried the obvious thing of going to profile pages and clicking on "add", but that just refreshed my homepage with no effect). I feel dumb.

Assuming I eventually manage to make it do stuff, please let me know if you're on the site and under what username so I can friend you.
Edit 3 pm: I managed to get the friending thing to work by means of using IE instead of Firefox. But still no luck with the IM system
Edit 5 pm: It's not me, it's Twitter; you have to try things a dozen times before it actually does anything. Thanks to pplfichi for testing for me
