    Don’t forget TweetDeck! http://tweetdeck.com/beta/

    It’s free. Works on Mac, Windows, Linux and the iPhone.

    Lets you track and post to multiple accounts at the same time, all in one very cool Adobe Air interface.

    I am not a paid shill, but I should be!

    Twitter is really a great invention, but I think blogging is even more important to create some traffic. But I can use some of the tips.
