One good use for texting:
I have a friend who is hearing impaired and finds it hard to use the telephone. She's about the only one I send text messages to, but that's largely because of the cost and because I find the phone more convenient.

One good use for twitter:
Some libraries are using it now to answer reference questions!

For a good intro to using Twitter, texting, and other Web 2.0 technologies see the forthcoming (2010) book (yes, it's hard-copy): _Introduction to Web 2.0_, by Alan Evans and Diane Coyle. I recently reviewed it for an upcoming issue of "Technical Communication." It's a bit pricey at about $67, but it also includes a CD-ROM and a website that could be very useful.
