As you can see on my sidebar I have a running list of my tweets, I have had a twitter account for most of the summer now. So far I have only posted 102 times, but that doesnt really matter because Im enjoying the links that others post on their accounts. Its more fun to watch my Twitter program (Syrinx [Mac]) populate with links as compared to trying to watch a whole window of RSS feeds. I use Tweetdeck for my iPhone, since I dont like Adobe AIR applications. I follow the Google Blog, Developer Works, boxee, Electronista, net,tuts+, macdailynews, and a sling of friends and acquaintances, in all I have found it to be a useful tool and a fun way to find links.

Ive found it a useful way to keep in touch with friends instead of calling on the mobile or sending an SMS or email. Sometimes it takes a few days but usually the conversations are like a chess match by mail, the move doesnt have to happen immediately.
