[kwlug-disc] Twitter and Identi.ca

Since there seems to be a few Twits on the list, I figured I would
inquire regarding tweet-following methods. (The folks who made twitter
must have been fans of Monty Python).

Does everybody use the twitter and identi.ca web interfaces? Do you
use a desktop program? If you use both services, how do you manage

I ask because while I use both of these micro-blog services, I don't
really get much advantage from them yet. I'm currently using "gwibber"
to read updates, and post using yet another service ("ping.fm") over
jabber. The whole situation currently feels like I'm getting
intermittent status updates on people's pets and meals using
TCP-over-deck-of-cards. Has anybody else had better experiences? Or
maybe a better workflow?
