Why? It may be a bit tricky, and it currently doesn't exist, but  
there's no immediate problem with doing that (without thinking about  
it much, though).

Yes, there's a PythonLoggingObserver (only in trunk) to do that.

> can I use socket that I handle by my self into a twisted application?

If you mean using the logging socket handler, no you can't do that,  
because it's blocking.
