There is a Discussion Board template. Sites created like that are somewhat like Twitter. Users can subscribe to Alerts so that they are notified when a topic is updated. That is the nearest you get to Twitter out of the box with MOSS 2007.

Hi Jamie,
What you suggested is right.
But the discussion board template has its own set of posting the discussion.
I want to have one textbox and a tweet button and after clicking that tweet button, it should fill the discussion list.
Sorry If I did not understand your question.

I assume you want to achieve the above using OOTB functions and not custom development. If so, Discussion Board is the nearest.

Do you have the resources for custom development?

What I want to achieve is using OOTB only and not custom development.

I planned to have one textbox and tweet button in webpart and on clicking the tweet button, the text in the textbox should get populated in the discussion list.

Can you give me the coding for that?
