Here we go:
Check notifications on Boxcar (iPhone). Notifies me of new @replies, followers, DMs, and emails. Also notifies me of breaking news about Apple.
Check text messages.
Catch up on my feeds with my Flipboard app (iPad). Tech News then links/pics from Twitter.
Check personal Twitter account on my iPad. (It's easier to skim through these since I've viewed all of the Twitpics with Flipboard already)
Promote with the @btvfam account. (Lots of the YouTubers like to promote late at night. I'll (re)tweet the morning after to give the information a little boost for the day.)
Catch up on Tumblr and other feeds with Google Reader at the desk.
Respond to text messages via Google Voice.
Respond to emails.
Take off DND from AIM, Skype.
Check professional Twitter account. If there's any breaking news that has been tweeted, I've probably already read about it from the news feeds.
I use Growl notifications on my Mac to passively update me with incoming tweets. Otherwise, I'll catch up with Twitter every few hours.
I also tend to load up a ton of background tabs on my browser for things to check out when I have time.
