I found this list of twitter shortcuts in the twitter help section. These are great to know whether you use twitter in the browser, a computer application or on your mobile phone. These shortcuts will save you time.

- D username + message
- WHOIS username

- FAV username

Example: whois jack

Example: get goldman
reminds a friend to update by asking what they’re doing on your behalf.
Example: nudge biz

this command returns your number of followers, how many people you’re following, and your bio information.
