    Awesome idea, I suggest having a team to handle that account!
    For all of you that didn't know about this, see here.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I don't understand the point of using that for anything.

    But then again, things like IRC, MSN and various other chat clients seem useless to me too, so..... [​IMG]

    I guess it's just my anti-social nature that causes me to see it that way.

    Well, Twitter is like an intelligent RSS, you know what you are posting, however it's manual so I guess is double the work.
    Twitter itself is kinda pointless but giving that the same pointlessness is so successful has to make people care about it.

    I think the GBAtemp team need to listen to me and fix up their RSS to it will work with Twitter feed.


    Its really simple to do... I even set up a gbatemp_releases twitter account..... but the GBATemp RSS feed is missing the date/time stamp (will literally take like 10 seconds to add in)... and then twitterfeed will automatically tweet all of the new releases when they come out.


    Doesn't that sound awesome... seeing all the new releases in your twitter feed.
    But no, Gbatemp will follow my twitter but actually just ignore all my suggestions [​IMG];

    Whats with the big boom of Twitter now? It wasn't up until last week where I heard about Twitter. Now all the local news stations, and Entertainment Tonight has one.

    Where did this site even come from? Lol.

    Doesn't seem like a bad idea though,
