TWitter

What is This?

This is the reader for the sfbaapt account in Twitter. The Reader is built using Oysttyer and TWiki.

Why?

One of the features of Twitter is that it runs 24/7/365. (Un)fortunately, most people don't. So, it's easy to miss things. I didn't want to miss things, so I looked for a solution.

Being a programmer myself, I wanted a solution I could control and tweak if necessary. However, I didn't want to write something from scratch if I didn't have to!

Twitter has a popular, published API, so I figured someone would have written what I wanted. Someone did; I found TTYtter (written in Perl).
