Lucie it is very possible. I am on the vtcite devopment team this year and tried it on my askbj site first to see how it works.   Our team this year really want to streamline vtcite and make it less clunky (as one school it member described it recently), as well as adding more push methods of showcasing the information like rss feeds and twitter.   I created a feedback forum and posted your email there, others are encouraged to add their ideas. 

I also started a thread under the Web2.0 forum and while it is not easily readable I copied all the recent twitter posts from School-IT.  There is definatly more to contribute and hope to see more comments:  http://vtcite.org/node/2554

Subject: Re: Twitter & drupal

Speaking of Drupal,  is there anyway that VTCITE (which I believe is
Drupal)  could be used as way to connect its users in a Twitter Like
Way (perhaps by Twitter or another similar module).

It could be something as simple as a way to Search for members who
have a published Twitter accounts (maybe a field name in our Account
Profile). I know that the beauty of Twitter is that it is organic, but
it might be a  nice entry point  for beginners to join the
conversation.  And it would also make for a broadcast like tool (a la
School IT)  that Vermonters could use to post 'comments and questions'
that would benefit from community, but are not necessarily of
important enough nature to end up as an email post here  or a VTCITE
entry.

It if could double post (as mentioned by BJ) on VTCITE and TWITTER it
would have the benefit of immediacy that Twitter provides with an
audience that wants to be connected and it would continue to populate
VTCITE, which I know folks are trying to do.

Just some ideas..
