Ideas for Twitter


I am still not sure that I will really use Twitter in the end.  The problem that I have is it is not really part of my daily routine.  I hardly have time to respond to emails, so spending time on something this trivial.


Automated systems are perfect candidates for using Twitter.  This post describes using Twitter for notifications from a home automation system. I think that this is a pefect use of Twitter.  Here are some other ideas:


  • Auto telematics systems to send notifications of car diagnostic status

  • Navigation systems, to send position information (Including urls on Google Maps)

  • Public transit systems to sent status notifications
