Oh yeah, I was at an event where everyone started complaining about the speaker on the twitter wall behind the speaker... so wrong... so glad I wasn't the speaker.
I have one caveat about using a twitter wall - I have seen it get kind of nasty. If there are any comments that are kind of critical and they're on display behind the speaker(s).
This is an extreme case, but it's always good to consider what happens when the backchannel becomes the frontchannel and whether the risks are worth it. http://www.zephoria.org/thoughts/archives/2009/11/24/spectacle_at_we.html
