This time, instead of a long-form review of product announcements at drupa 2012, we thought we’d try reporting the highlights in a format that many of us are getting accustomed to: Tweetable bursts of 140 characters or less. Advantage: in a collection of Tweets, we can give you more product references than we could in a standard article of the same length. Disadvantage: a 140-character Tweet can be harder to compose than a regular blurb of a comparable number of full words. Lesson learned: in microblogging, less definitely can be more in terms of editorial sweat equity.

Each of the following 50 Tweets contains a shortened link to detailed information from its respective vendor. Reminder: products mentioned are not necessarily available for purchase—some were show demos, others remain in development or in beta testing. And now, let the Tweeting begin:
