I have been using it for a while now, it allowed me to have full concentration on the functionality of the website instead of cross browsing testing and styling. It can easily save me heaps of times! Based on my personal opinion, Twitter Bootstrap does limit how you design a website. If you look at this Twitter Bootstrap showcase, many of them are identical and you can read another opinion from Paul Scrivens. It's a good tool, but don't abuse it.
In this post, I have found many useful tools, plugins and themes created specifically for Twitter Bootstrap. If you love using Twitter Bootstrap, I'm sure you will love all these resources.
