    I love data.  For my use of Twitter I use the web interface for both Twitter and Twitter search (which I feed into Google Reader using RSS).  I know lots of "gurus" swear by TweetDeck, but I find the web and RSS to be a lot faster for what I like to do.  But... who cares about me!  Let's look at a random sample of a half a million tweets and see what people actually use to post updates to Twitter.
