I haven't found a filmmaking community on Twitter yet, but I can envision that it could be extremely useful. One of the best aspects of Twitter is growing a network of people with various kinds of expertise and being able to quickly mine them for information in an instant. Twitter could be helpful for producers on location — in strange places where you need recommendations of some kind or help with logistics. Also, working with editing software, there's always someone who has better skills that can help you resolve some sticky problem. Sharing and getting recommendations about films, events, and networking in any field... on this level, at least, Twitter could be helpful.
