This is a great tip and has already proved invaluable in the last 12 hours.

With slight tweaks this can be made private (lock tweets on the 'buzz' feed) and to use SMS instead of Boxcar (if you're on a free SMS supporting network) through choosing phone alerts for just the buzz 'account'. Works very well on my Nokia E71.

thanks for mentioning my blog as an example :)

this could be really useful and would definitely prevent having to do a whole bunch of vanity searches now and then. not that i do *obviously*

Hey Drew, this sounds like a really great, time-saving idea. I'll be interested to hear how you get on with it.

Anything that helps aggregate all this information will be extremely useul.

We've founder Feedburner with its recently added functionality to be a good alternative to Boxcar and SMS for non mobile apps.
