I have added a Twitter field to "Your User Details" in the USERCP
If you add your twitter username to that then your profile will display the last 5 tweets.
My profile has this enabled now:

I have Twitter and it was all great until the LA blocked it over half term :(
Also blocked. :p
blocked here - didnt used to be and I was planning on using it to mass message parents - before they decided to do away with the free text service
Just contacted the LA to try and get Twitter unblocked.
I claimed that it was a good point of contact for other "geeks" around the country.
Unfortunately, it "contravenes our filtering policy
(RM filtering policy) and therefore remains filtered". Rubbish.
Still, I update via text so it's not too bad.
If the LA need a list of leading teachers who use it then that is easy enough to get together. In fact I will tweet about this later and see what response I get. Ok to name and shame the LA?
twitter is available here (Bolton).... quite shocked really :)
Twitter OK here too.
I'm on it! Will update my profile...
Just started, by recommendation from Mr Fry. Also found Tweetie as a good app for iPhone.
Our monitoring servers are on it.
