Attention: Another web2.0 tool! :-)
on the recent KM4DEV event we talked about twitter, a micro-blogging tool and another way to collaborate on a daily base online. Essential it offers another way for KM4DEV members to help each other. It is like Skype chat but directed to a whole community. Twitter is perfect to exchange quickly information, to use synergies and discuss. Personally I had an incredible experience so far to connect with people online to share and learn. I reached the network size that I basically always get at least one answer when I ask something. Best it works as a pull-method so you decide when to engage. Curious? Try it out and be sure to connect to the existing KM4DEV Twitterer.
As usual there is another explain it in plain English Twitter in Plain English
Here is a list of who is already part of it from KM4DEV, which we could put on the KM4DEV wiki. (Each account can be protected for private use only!)

thanks a lot for the list of contacts on twitter. They are very useful to create a network to experiment the use of twitter you talked about in Almada.
For those who use Firefox, I suggest installing this nice plug-in called twitter fox Add-ons for Firefox that helps follow your contacts WITHOUT installing other sw or surfing to the twitter homepage. It's also compatible with the new Firefox 3.
