I can see how merging IRC & Twitter could be useful - looks kinda neat
actually - but I personally don't use IRC very often.  IRC is like the
emacs of instant messaging and I don't use that either.

Anyway it's not a big deal.  The reason I'm even looking at Twitter is
to see a bit more of the cloud.  I came across a couple of interesting
stories today about Salesforce[1][2] and suppose they were the straws
that broke the camels' back.  (Sorry for the pun.)

Writing interfaces (CLI and GUI) for web services and/or
cloud-computing environments is a part of my current undertaking (code
name "lazius") and this seemed a relatively simple place to start.

In any event, I'm sure the answer's out there.  Thanks for pointing
out the IRC connection though; I may have a use for that down the
road.  :-)
