One of the most inspired uses I thought was the http://twitter.com/Marsphoenix. Yes NASA setup a twitter feed for the Lander and it tweeted information in real-time, as well as images and videos.wrmcomputers said:Anybody got any other good use suggestions? I'd be keen to hear your idea's
Talking Points Memo said:Oh the (rare, but occasionally exceptional) joys of Twitter. Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX)--the ranking member on the House Energy & Commerce Committee--says (tweets?) "I seemed [sic] to have baffled the Energy Sec with basic question - Where does oil come from?"
He's referring to Nobel prize winning Energy Secretary Steve Chu, and this exchange.
Clicks for tricks: Twitter's first brothel?The Guardian said:Clicks for tricks: Twitter's first brothel?
House of Divine in glamorous Milton Keynes tweeted to say that Lucia and Karol were working on Sunday while another message offered a "Twitter Discount". The operation has been exposed in The Sun newspaper, which trumpets: "A BROTHEL is touting its services via social networking site TWITTER."
Since "adult services" have previously managed to use other communications systems -- postal services, telephones, shop windows, email, the web, advertisements in tabloid newspapers -- this shouldn't come as a huge surprise, but brothel stories are probably good for raising your circulation (fnar fnar).

"House of Divine" advertises which girls are on duty each day - and issues "special offers" to punters' mobile phones.
The firm, based in Milton Keynes, Bucks, also sends appeals for working girls to enlist.
Lib-Dem MP Julia Goldsworthy labelled the brothel's use of Twitter "cynical and inappropriate" . Twitter declined to comment yesterday.
I use it in a similar way to this - Our Course appears on lots of social networks and web 2.0 stuff (facebook, Myspace, the students Ning Network, a forum, a tumblr blog, a VLE ) and updating them all is a real pain,wmrcomputers said:Again guys, if you read properly.. you can set your page to private updates allowing ONLY the people you wish to read it. Used in the right way it's good for keeping your family and direct friends in touch and not the "whole world". Used without the private updates turned on I agree would be stupid.
Another good use could be (updates on for everyone to read) using it as a LATEST INFO page on your website where you could add stuff instantly by text without being near your PC. A school could use it for telling parents about events / closures / training days for example - without needing to know anything more than how to send a text message!
