TIBCO's Patrick Sapinski for some news on a CEP-driven
Twitter application (albeit not public yet) that used location
awareness principles to "tweet" people
depending on where they were (e.g. passing a certain location).
The Twitter side of the story was apparently the easy part.
"We did not do any Java

send tweets to Twitter. It was pretty easy once I configured the
messages, URL, etc."
Of course, for corporate applications / private tweets

iGoogle to monitor "the real thing" via RSS
