Does anybody here care about this stuff? Many people in the theater-world are connecting thru this medium. Maybe the people connecting this way are not connected here? Hmmm. It seems I'm mostly talking to myself.
Paddy, you're into short plays (or your theater is) -- have you seen the Neo-Futurists? 30 plays in 60 minutes is their thing. The company members develop the plays, and they have them on a menu and the audience votes which 30 they will see that night from the menu as the show progresses.
The collection was published last year - Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind.
It's a very cool collection, and they are great group to be in the room with. Some of the plays are little jokes, while others are insanely moving. I saw them about 8 years ago, and some of the darker and deep pieces still stick with me.

Great run-down and primer for entering the Twitter-verse as a playwright --
Seven Steps to Success for Playwrights on Twitter
by GWYDION SUILEBHAN, playwright
So much has been written about the intersection between Twitter and theater from a big picture perspective (see Theater, Twitter, and Revolution at HowlRound for my own personal take), but I’ve yet to find a simple list of tips to help playwrights who are new to Twitter get accommodated to the medium. So I thought… why don’t I make one?
