80 Links That Rock Twitter! What are you doing?
Damn, I love Twitter! I've even declared it a MySpace killer. Why? Simply because of its addictiveness and simplicity. Who wants all the garbage and crap advertised on MySpace anyway?

Two more for your list: Friend or Follower and TwitApi (Google should bring up links if interested) :)
I'd also advise using imified (it's a jabber, msn, aim or yahoo bot that allows you to interact with other web services, one of them... twitter).
I set up my shortcuts so that when I'm chatting, if I'd like to add something to twitter, I just type in
/twit 'the message'
And that's that.
Excuse the self-promotion, an addition to the web apps/mashup list: twitterfeed.com, lets you set up automatic/scheduled twitter updates using your blog's rss or atom feed.
you can now automatically tweet what you're listening to on pluggd.com!
I agree with you! I am addicted to Twitter. It's simple, it's easy and it is instant gratification.
Over at floodgap.com, in there Software section, is a great little perl app called ttytter, which is great for the unix set to twitter...it is my main client.
Thanks for pulling together this great list. I am new to Twitter and just getting my feet wet so to speak. It's nice to know that there is a community that supports and helps to develop and advance the technology. It demonstrates that where there is a need or a demand for something people will rally round the cause.
Did you forget TwitterFox? That's what I (and a lot of people) use.
