What's twonky about?

I just bought this my book world drive and I ran across this twonky media server.  Does anybody know what twonky is and what do i use it for?

TwonkyMedia is media server software that lets you access your music, photos or videos from DLNA or UPnP-certified devices like Internet-ready TVs and stereos, PS3, Xbox 360, other PCs, mobile phones and over 6000 other devices.

Thanks to both of you for the information.  I’m definitely working to convert my house to DLNA devices and twonky will be usefull to me.
