I finally started tweeting after reading Denise Olson's posts at Family Matters about connecting via Twitter. She is a pro at sending out great links and other tech goodness she comes across on the web. It's obvious that Twitter can do much more than just update pals on where you are having lunch -- it's a fast and easy way to keep up on the news and stay connected with your interests. She's even running Twittersuite on her blog to note "Recently Tweeted" and "Favorite Tweets." It's a great way to integrate networking tools.
Of course, tweeting really shines (crows?) when done from a mobile device. I've been using Twitterberry on my BlackBerry Curve and enjoying tweets presented in a timeline format similar to TwitterFox, a Foxfire add-on. Both support updates, replies, tagging, and personal messaging. Twitterberry works over the data network; SMS not required. It even allows URLs in tweets to be opened with the BlackBerry Browser.
