View tweets made by your contacts System 10.8
If you have Twitter handles for your friends and colleagues in your Contacts, you can easily view tweets those people have made. Just open a card in Contacts, click on Twitter, then choose View Tweets. If you have the official Twitter app installed, it will open displaying tweets from that person. If not, a web page will open on the Twitter web site.

You can also tweet to someone from OS X by clicking on Twitter, and choosing Tweet, as long as you have set up your Twitter account in the Mail, Contacts & Calendars pane of System Preferences.

While viewing tweets is nice, it would be even better if they could open in one's favorite Twitter client. But that would presumably involve hacking Contacts. Anyone interested in trying to figure it out?

This works in 10.7.5 in Address Book. Clicking on "Twitter" in there reveals "View Profile" and "Send Tweet".
