UPDATED: Completely forgot to include Drew Benvie’s excellent list on why Twitter is useful for PR ppl. I also completly forgot to mention the very useful search function on twitter which is most handy for following hashtag conversations.  If you have no idea what hashtags are, read this very useful page on the Twitter Fan Wiki.

Finally, for now at least, possibly the most useful tool of 09 if you follow lots of ppl who go to events that you don’t go to and you’re getting spammed by #convos you can now put ppl on Twitter  snooze for a while.
