Joe Murphy [Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA] has written a neat article called Better Practices From the Field: Micro-Blogging for Science & Technology Libraries. It was first published in Science & Technology Libraries 28 but is available on eprints.

Here's a bit of it:
"Micro-blogs are social networks for broadcasting news with a very short character limit in the vein of text messaging. These tools are great for library announcements, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. We can post news such as special events.... Think outside the box by posting news from your parent institution or your library's constituencies."

This sounds like a really neat idea.
