Adium, the popular multi-protocol chat app for OS X, announced a while back that version 1.4 will support using Twitter via IM. If you don't want to wait for 1.4, you can turn on Twitter in Adium using the TwitterIM plugin. It lets you add your Twitter account to Adium, just like an account from any other service, and you can use it to post to Twitter and reply to other people's messages.

TwitterIM is not an official release by the Adium team, but it works well enough to hold you over until theirs comes out. Basically, your Twitter stream comes in like regular IMs, all in one window, and you can click a link to send a reply. To set up Twitter once the plug-in is installed, just create a new account in your Adium preferences, and put in your Twitter username and password.
