If you're not at least aware of Twitter by now, you should be. It seems like most of the social media sphere has jumped on board. With plug-ins for Facebook and badges for Blogger, MySpace and Typepad, Twitter is making itself ubiquitous.

For those who are aware but not active practitioners of the art of the tweet, there seems to be a high level of skepticism regarding this social application. But as the application becomes more widespread, there are increasingly more ways to use it.

Case in point: Twitter is now integrated with the task management system Remember the Milk. You can now add rtm as a friend and soon be sending yourself to-do items or managing your task list, no matter where you are.

Not that the world necessarily needs another electronic to-do list organizer. The reason this attracts my attention is because the RTM folks have integrated a number of Google APIs into their site, so you can get RTM in your Google Calendar, Google Maps and as an iGoogle gadget.

With the user-friendly services like Grand Central and FeedBurner under their belt, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Google grabs RTM next. It seems that my list of useful social media tools keeps growing.

How about you? Do you have some useful tools or applications that you can't live without? Drop a note in a comment and let me know.
