What are you doing?
This is the first question everyone asks you at the start of a chat.
this service twitter answers for it on your behalf. its simple and an important advantage is you can use it in your google mail itself and no need to go to the site. (similar like webaroosms).
Just register in the site and add firstname.lastname@example.org to your google buddy list. Thats it. Now twitter will say you your friend's updates to you and the other way too.
here's the link http://www.twitter.com
