    Default Twitter for trial updates

    I Twitter typically with work/customer acquaintances and use it quite frequently during seminars or large meetings to make notes and broadcast them around to those who can't be there to attend. I was wondering if anyone twitters to pass along updates and callbacks for trials.

    Anyone with a Blackberry or other smartphone device can easily install a small app to make quick text message type notes for these updates. When making updates, you can use the # symbol along with the name of the club so anyone can search on it on the web through a twitter search site.

    If we could get a twitter account setup by someone attending the nationals, we could get updates sent to our phones all day, and then check the details here on RTF. How cool would that be....

    Twitter is a mini blog where the person sends out updates called "tweets" , and people may respond to those..basically like someone here opening a thread and everyone on their crackberrys and Iphones texting back.. for example
