I may be late to the this party, but the Twitterverse just led me to this fairly new theme for WordPress named Prologue which seems to create a Twitter-like blog that can be installed locally. Here is a demo to check out. And here is another, YouthTwitter.com that was put together by Paul Allison and Susan Ettenheim both of Teachers Teaching Teachers fame. Looks like more than 140 characters, but the idea is the same. And I love reading the questions and replies about how it all works, etc.
In that context, don’t forget this Twitter for Academia post to start generating some ideas of how Prologue might actually be useful. Any other ideas?

The locally installed aspect of this puts this right up my alley. I just gabbed the SVN files and uploaded it to a WordPress MU installation. I will mess around with it for awhile, then run it by our tech committee. I’ll write up my experiences and thoughts on my blog http://openedweb.com/blog. I’ll also put up the theme for those not familiar with SVN clients.
This is great as I prefer local installations for web 2.0 applications for the classroom. Besides, I have a long struggle before I’d ever get the committee to consent to use of twitter itself.
