OraTweet and Other Enterprise Micro-Blogging Tools

So I was talking to Stephen diFilipo today and he mentioned OraTweet - which is Oracle's new enterprise Twitter like system and it made me wonder how many institutions had setup their own internal Twitter systems (Enterprise Micro-Blogging) like OraTweet (what a name)? I did know about Yammer like systems for use among internal enterprise staff. However, I did not know about Blue Twit (IBM) and Laconica. Are there others out there that we should be aware of and how do these systems feed back into public facing micro-blogging apps like twitter?

Just saw that the duo from Best Buy who came up with Blue Shirt Nation (Drupal) are trying their own micro-blogging app called Mix - however it looks like Mix may have come and gone. For more on Blue Shirt Nation see the book by Li, C., & Bernoff, J. (2008). Groundswell: Winning in a world transformed by social technologies. Boston, Mass: Harvard Business Press.

I think the subject line speaks for itself, but maybe I'm the only one who can't say "OraTweet" with a straight face. Brought to you by the same company who named their calendaring program "Corporate Time."...
