For those of you that are in an organization where you are blocked from using Twitter, this could be for you. Daniel McPherson just added a post to his blog (www.zevenseas.com) about Twitter for SharePoint.
Here’s some teaser info straight from his blog….
How it works…
- It integrates with the “My Colleagues” functionality which you can find on your MOSS “My site”. This integration means that you “Follow” anyone you make your “Colleague”.
- When you want to send someone a message you use the normal “@<person>” syntax. The current version defaults to using your Windows Account Name (without the domain)
- Its a “Site” based feature which you can activate wherever you like. So it could be part of your “My Site” or it could sit on a “Twitter hub” in its own dedicated Web Application.
