    GlennTip from the author... Make sure you use a Twitter client that informs you when people @mention you or DM (direct contact) you.  Consider also using Twitter Search (search.twitter.com) to search for your name, your company, and your brand. Again, your ideal Twitter client should support the creation of columns that deliver search results for specified terms - I use Tweetdeck Mobile on iPhone to create columns for specific keyword searches, this is particularly useful during events...
