Incorporating twitter into blogging

I participated in a recent BlogHer promotion required that I tweet about my post.  Until that time I had not set up a twitter feed for my blog. Now I have one. I've been playing with different kinds of posts. If my twitter feed is only "Hey, check out my latest blog posts," that is pretty dull, I think. So I have been trying to find opportunities to make it something that complements the blog posts but can also stand on its own.  I have a feed for my tweets on the right-hand side of the blog, below the BlogHer promos, so even non-twitter-users can follow along.  So far I have played with photos, retweeting interesting posts, and using my twitter feed to keep followers informed on my progress with LoseIt. I have subscribed to other bloggers' feeds for ideas too.

What bloggers do you follow on twitter? What kind of tweets do you like to see?
