50 ideas on using Twitter for business

After looking at 5 ways not to use Twitter for freelancers, I came across another very interesting and helpful post on Chris Brogan‘s blog: 50 Ideas on Using Twitter for Business.
Here are my favorite points:
4. Point out interesting things in your space, not just about you. 
7. Be wary of always pimping your stuff. Your fans will love it. Others will tune out. 
13. When promoting a blog post, ask a question or explain what’s coming next, instead of just dumping a link. 
14. Ask questions. Twitter is GREAT for getting opinions. 
18. Share the human side of your company. If you’re bothering to tweet, it
means you believe social media has value for human connections. Point us
to pictures and other human things. 
21. You don’t have to read every tweet. (This may be the most important one… did somebody say time?!) 
47. Twitter brings great minds together, and gives you daily opportunities
to learn (if you look for it, and/or if you follow the right folks).

So, how do you use Twitter? And if you don’t (yet?), why not?
