Bringing Twitter behind the firewall

I mentioned previously that one of the key trends at this summer's Enterprise 2.0 conference was in how to bring public social computing tools into the enterprise in a manner consistent with requirements for compliance, security, and governance. This week SocialText reinforced that theme with the launch of the SocialText Microblogging Appliance, joining SocialCast among others with a twitter-like appliance-based application (along with SaaS offerings from the likes of Yammer and Present.ly).

The emergence of enterprise-ready tools for micro-blogging show the rapid movement of twitter-like messaging from toy to tool. Now how long before we see these capabilities as part of a unified communications offering integrated with telephony/voice, video, conferencing, and messaging?
