Tweeters or twitterers?? - don't ask me

Sitting in the Learning and Technology World Forum (2010) I found myself surrounded by people tweeting throughout all the presentations, on phones, computers, whatever technology they had.

I have not been to a conference where this was done quite so much - mind you technology does feature large at this one so I suppose if it's going to happen anywhere it's here. Speaking to one twitterer (is there such a word?) she assured me that her whole team in Wales would be following each post, really interested in what was being said in real time? This brought visions of teams of people all watching their screens in real time all round the world - this conference is really both actual and virtual simultaneously. This is technology in action and really very exciting.

What is the word - are people twitterers or tweeters?
