Twitter and Continued Beta Testing

Filed under: Uncategorized — artwells @ 5:09 pm

I played a bit with getting nshrine hooked up with twitter. It was amusing and made it so that direct messages to twitter user ‘nshrine’ would go into a twitter shrine. Though this shows some promise and utility, I wasn’t happy with the fact that the nshrine user had to follow another user before receiving direct messages from them, though I completely agree with twitter’s decision to make this limitation. Once nshrine gets a bit more popular, I’ll hook this up again and make it so that the nshrine member with autofollow anyone following it. Right now, there’s no reason to be hitting twitter’s servers that much.

I’m still getting great feedback from some of the beta testers. Do let me know if you’ve found any bugs or confusing bits.
