Twitter

I know some of you use twitter, and follow some of you. I was wondering about hashtags and how as a community we should use them to identify Mudding posts etc.

Re: Twitter

Not a bad idea to have standard words for this. We have been using twitter quite a bit for Iron Realms lately.

Re: Twitter

I'm actaully looking into the Twitter API, to possibly automate a few announcements fomr my mud to twitter (Code based RP events). And see what I can do that way

Re: Twitter

Alter Aeon does some things with twitter as well, for now just posting reboot messages. You can use curl to post stuff from the command line, it's well suited for scripting.

Re: Twitter

I was looking at that
Quote:
curl -u username:password -d status="your message here" http://twitter.com/statuses/update.json
Hmm would this work in the code for most C based Muds?

Quote:
system("curl -u username:password -d status=\"your message/varibles here\" http://twitter.com/statuses/update.json &");
note I am not a programmer at this time, just thinking like one at the moment

Re: Twitter

My code may be unsafe, and buggy, but I'm not a programmer either
