Lookout! Outlook Incorporating Twitter

The Twitter monster just keeps on growing.  You can’t stop it.  Really.  You just cannot stop Twitter.  You also can’t beat it, at least Microsoft Outlook thinks so.  So when you can’t beat it, join it.  In what should turn into an interesting story, Xobni (an e-mail management software) has created a Twitter plug-in for Outlook.  Seems like an inevitable step, as Xobni has already shown success with Facebook and LinkedIn plugs, but it is exciting for Twitter fans.  For businesses who are scared to embrace social media in their organizations?  Probably not as exciting.  But one thing this news does show is that short-form communication could have a big effect on the future of e-mail.
