I finally signed up for a twitter account today after some prodding from my friend.

I gotta say, I’m not really feeling it. As a programmer, I really don’t want to see constant notifications distracting me and taking me out of the zone. And if I hide Twitterrific and set the update timer to 10 minutes, what’s the point?

Right now, the best use of Twitter is as a distributed notification framework, like Growl, but the notifications show up on your cellphone.

This would be an excellent feature for someone to add to Lingon.
