Tying things together - [9:53 PM]

I'm a loyal NetNewsWire and MarsEdit user. With the discovery of Twitter I'm trying to figure out how to tie them all together. I read weblogs with NetNewsWire and post to my own via MarsEdit. I'd like to do the same with Twitter. Maybe just subscribing to my RSS feed in NetNewsWire will be good enough for the viewing, but what about posting?

Twitter blurs the line between so many thing. Blogging, chat, and e-mail. Where does it fit in the toolset I use every day? I like the idea of it being integrated with NetNewsWire, maybe a special mode, but integrated none the less. It's where I spend my time reading and since I'm not creating full fledged posts to my weblog it makes it feel like the right choice.

So, the question is, how do we get it there? Maybe a nice drawer in NetNewsWire, with the look and feel similar to the web page? I need to think about this more.
