tweet.IM is a free service that enables you to use micro-blogging platforms like Twitter from your existing instant messaging application. The service makes it easier for you to send messages (called tweets), as well as follow the tweets of other users.
The tweet.IM service sits between your Jabber or Google Talk instant messaging account and your Twitter account and passes messages to and from, in both directions. As a result, you can create Twitter messages in your instant messaging application and send them direct to Twitter, without having to enter your Twitter account. You can also elect to receive tweets from users that you follow, directly in your instant messenger.
* Send and receive tweets more easily and quickly
* Track who stopped or started following you
* Extend the capabilities of your existing instant messaging application
* Use an innovative new service, that is completely free of charge
