Did you know @aofroobs has a Twitter account? Well now you do. Just another way to stay connected to your favorite site. I actually just started this account so there aren't many followers yet, so help me get the ball rolling. Don't have a Twitter account yet? What's the hold up? Everyone is doing it.... muahahahahaha

I completely despise Twitter and all the emphasis put on it*, but that's cool that you went out and made one. More coverage of AO Froobs is always cool.




*Probably because I'm a 20ish college student who sees no point in Twitter. It's redundant and useless compared to Facebook [for my age group], a networking site that is well past its prime itself. I just find Twitter to be some site for middle aged people to feel tech savvy and connected, to feel 'cool' like their kids/my generation. No one cares about your status updates just like no one cares about them on FB. Twitter is a crappy FB with less features and functions. And the phrase 'Tweet me' is just horrendous. Rant off, hopefully no derail.

I think you just called me old ;)

In all seriousness.. Twitter has a use and I've been on it for a while. The problem now is mainstream media got a whiff of it and now its being plastered everywehere. FFS Ashton Kutcher just got a million followers. Who cares about Ashton Kutcher. But, like everything else on the web, its not for everyone. That's fine with me. :)

And what, may I ask, will you do if I decide NOT to make an account on Twitter? :wink: Try to coat my keyboard with flesh-eating bacteria or something?

This city is afraid of me.

I have seen its true face.

The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown.

The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down and whisper

"Maybe after a Hot Pocket."

Heyas,

For all those whiners...
1. there are many facebook apps that show your friends tweets on your oh-so-beloved social network ;)
2. TL5+ has a tweet, too.
2a) Plus Snarfu provided me with an awesome BeBot module to send tweets from in game chat to the web. Useful to announce raids, provided we get more followers.
2b) Idef made a theme for our forum to show the latest 3 tweets.
3. In some countries you can relay you tweet to a mobile phone number (as text SMS's).

==> go think: It has some uses. :)

regards

Let me remind you this post isn't for flaming one social network over another. The point is to let people know its available. If you don't like it, don't use it. I could care less. If you want to debate social networks, take it to off-topic.

Not really. Serves a different purpose and is much easier to implement then rss in phpBB.

Its not a matter of want... I'm sure you know that. Its a basic cost/benefit sort of thing. Big cost.. not a ton of benefit. (Cost in this case is time of course)

O.o

Honestly, an RSS feed would be a huge benefit for me: i get updates from tlfiveplus per RSS, from ao-universe. Currently i have to scan aofroobs periodically (three times a day) to see if there are new post relevant to me. Instead, i could have feeded them to my desktop and react quicker :)

Anyway, just threating you...
