I just can't imagine real time reports of adding a line of code/feature 
to a product would be useful. The timescale is at issue - to add a 
feature to a significant product requires coding (which may take days) 
followed by testing (many hours). Would anyone be hanging on twitter 
waiting for this?

That said, twitter might be useful if you're at a conference and want to 
know where your buds are headed for dinner or who is right now giving a 
talk that is interesting.
