    if edugeek had its own twitter account it could use the twitter api to post links to new threads. I have some time next week to investigate the api side of this, if it's of interest....?

    With the amount of posts made on here, I wouldn't follow that myself - I get twitter updates on my phone - i'd never be able to pick out the important stuff.

    Nah, twitter is useful for some things. Grumbledook makes good use of it, for example.

    Yeh I know what you mean it can be a good tool it's just when it's used by 'Dave' you know the type. "Dave is on the toilet...Dave is going down the pub...Dave is in the supermarked

    Is there any way to get the EduGeek site itself, i.e. PHPBB, to support the Twitter API instead?

    Edugeek runs on vBulletin, not phpBB now. You can add your own twitter account in your profile already. How else do you want it to integrate?

    Yes EduGeek was taken when we set the EG twitter account up.

    We use twitterfeed.com : feed your blog to twitter to get the posts to twitter. Also I have updated the settings so our tweets have Edugeek.net at the start. Hopefully that will make it slightly better to deal with.

    Also a question do you want the http://twitter.com/edugeekuk to be a pure forum/blog post feed or would you want that account to be more interactive.

    Also I can set the feed to publish to following services:

    Facebook
    laccni.ca
    hellotxt
    Any service that ping.fm supports.

    Would this be interest to anyone.
