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
