If you want the instant communication of Twitter, but you want to restrict access to your company, you may want to try Yammer (www.yammer.com). Yammer creates a Twitter-like atmosphere that is only accessible to people with the same e-mail domain. Yammer also adds threaded conversations to the tweets and organizational charts, so it has value beyond a simple Twitter imitation. Recently it has also added the ability to create communities across multiple e-mail domains, so it's possible to have a partnership community with vendors and customers.

Yammer makes an official app. It's not robust, but it does allow you to post and see status updates. Fortunately, the intracompany nature of Yammer means that you don't need the same bells and whistles for communication as you would for Twitter.
