would someone explain to me how you can have a 'discussion' that is 
comprised of 140 characters?

I have just started an ACS SA Branch twitter offering 
twitter.com/acssabranch, in which I hope members and non members will 
provide feedback and comment.  My purpose was to engage with members 
through publicising the activity that happens in the branch, and I cant 
see how I could use it for 'discussions'.  Then again I am an ingenue in 
this brave new world, so enlightenment is welcome in 140 characters or 
more ;)
