It was Jonathan writing about the Mars robot that finally got me on Twitter actually - so thanks for that!

Plus most of the diabetes ones. Hooray for FriendFeed...
 
Vaguely techy bit about practicalities of Twitter
In answer to Sallie's question about having a twitter feed ticker-taping in a screen I think the answer
is yes although I don't know how to do that myself (yet). Quite a few people have recommended
TweetDeck which appears to be something that you can download to help you manage your feed.
"An application that aims to evolve existing functionality of Twitter by breaking down Twitter feeds into 
more manageable bite sized pieces." http://www.tweetdeck.com <http://www.tweetdeck.com>  
 
I use FriendFeed to manage some of my various feeds (I use Bloglines for most RSS stuff for blogs
and podcasts) which makes things a bit easier - http://www.friendfeed.com <http://www.friendfeed.com>  and http://www.bloglines.com <http://www.bloglines.com>  
 
If you're 'watching' an event unfold (eg if the events at a conference are being live blogged by someone(s)
writing regular updates) then everyone talking about said event will include an agreed term in their feed,
eg #scienceconference so that it can be captured with all the other feeds mentioning that term and sent 
to a page where others can read it. Goodness knows where, quite possibly TweetDeck.
 
You can get an idea of this by using http://search.twitter.com <http://search.twitter.com>  and typing in a term - at the moment of
typing the phrase #inaug09 is "trending" (popular) - but you have to keep pressing refresh to see new
posts. Or at least I do.
 
Someone else will have to tell me how I'd get it 'live' as I've never got around to working this bit out!
I would quite like to know :-)
