Well there's a bunch of reasons why twitter is twitter and irc is irc.
For our purposes, that twitter is accesible from anywhere where you
have a browser, that messages are broadcasted to all the interested
people, among other things, makes it totally different than irc.

For the proposed idea, the thing with twitter would be:
 - anybody can browse to and read what we are
thinking/doing in 160 chars or less, miscelanea included
 - it does not require anything else than a browser, no shell for a
bot, no irc client, or grepping logs for "somebody joined", "somebody
 - 160 chars as a limit is a nice idea imo.

Of course, no one would be forced to anything, if someone doesn't have
twitter or doesn't want to create one, then fine, no problem. After
all this is just an informal way of keeping track of what people does.
