Ok, now that I have been using twitter (http://twitter.com) for quite some time, I wrote a bot for it which will notify twitter users of the recent updates by their MAL friends (or anybody they like to follow). Do the following steps:
1. Add 'malbot' to your friends in twitter, either through web or by sending 'follow malbot' in IM or phone.
2. To follow someone on MAL, send a direct message to malbot - "follow MALuser" either through web or through IM or phone by sending 'd malbot follow MALuser'.
3. To stop following someone on MAL, send a direct message to malbot - "leave MALuser" either through web or through IM or phone by sending 'd malbot leave MALuser'.
You will receive updates by the people you follow as a direct message from malbot. Suggestions are welcome.

I don't use Twitter (mostly 'cause I only get 200 texts a month for my cell). Sorry! :(

Oh well, can't you use it on your computer? There are a number of twitter clients. I am sure you use computer for a lot of time each day.
