Twitter is the soapbox you can stand up on to shout out a message. it's simple and effective which is why celebrities love to use it.
Facebook is the photo album you can fill up and say 'look at me'. It's more involved, requires more effort and caters to a different bunch(not counting internet marketers who jump on everything).
The problem with both: neither of these is anything more than a branded platform, it's the PEOPLE who make either service worth a dime. Without users the platforms aren't worth the server space they occupy. The next great platform will render both twitter and facebook obsolete, despite these rather fantastic egos.
Controlling the mob doesn't make you a superstar so I rather hate hearing such boastful claims out of either 'platform'. I find it self aggrandizing.
