Want a list of Australian CEOs that are on Twitter? Scroll to the bottom.

Business Week have a piece on each CEO that uses the so-called ‘microblogging’ service Twitter. I don’t like the term micro-blogging when applied to Twitter as it’s less of a one-to-many asynch depth of content site like a video blog or a multimedia blog and more of a few-to-few synchronous chat channel.

Tweets From the Chiefs

The best chief executives are nothing if not efficient, and what’s more efficient than 140-character memos?

Microblogging site Twitter is the latest tech tool to enter the C-suite. Whether they are broadcasting quick company updates, sharing a personal side of their lives with employees, or networking with other executives, plenty of CEOs have begun to make tweets part of their daily routine. And it’s not just the Silicon Valley crowd—chief executives in marketing, publishing, and retail are also populating the site.

Here’s the list:

Kevin Rose from Digg
Tony Hsieh from Zapppos
Jasaon Calacanis from Mahalo (former Netscape no?)
Michael Arrington from TechCrunch
Loic LeMeur from Seesmic
