I don't tweet alot on twitter. However, I like to listen to tweets. Two twitter ids I really like are BreakingNewsOn and OverRaleigh. BreakingNewsOn sends out news tweets from AP, Reuters, etc. The tweets are short and have a tiny url at the end of each tweet. It's very convenient for me to keep up with the news, and it's more balance than cnn, foxnews, or msnbc, since it's not US-centric. OverRaleigh tweets about the location and time whenever the International Space Station flies over Raleigh, so I know when and where to spot the ISS. Anyhow, I found that if I follow twitters who tweets a lot, it drowns out twitters who seldomly twitters. I use TwitterFox for Firefox to keep up with any tweets. It's a small, simple utility, compared to other full-blown twitter apps, but it's not intrusive to me, so I like it. I created the Twitter Noise group on MyDw. I encourage anyone who's into twitter to participate.
