When it comes to social media and its business applications, Twitter can be about more than, well, Twitter. It's a good venue for keeping up with broader social and community developments--and how those might be useful in your business. You're likely to hear how another firm is engaging with another site such as Quora, for example. Invest the time to follow an appropriate mix of people and publications. (Cough, The BrainYard is a fine place to start.) Twitter chats, conducted via the famed hashtag, can be another valuable source of learning. An example: #blogchat meets every Sunday night at 8 p.m. CT for a discussion on blogging best practices, trends, and related topics. TweetChat is a third-party site that can help control the volume of various hashtag-based conversations.

re: 10 Smart Enterprise Uses For Twitter
Good recommendations here. The only thing I would say is I'm not sure how much Twitter could be used to communicate internally. I don't see that being a big communication mechanism for getting messages to employees.

Just because the server market's in the doldrums doesn't mean innovation has ceased. Far from it -- server technology is enjoying the biggest renaissance since the dawn of x86 systems. But the primary driver is now service providers, not enterprises.
