Regarding Twitter, there is Perlnews which seems to broadcast all new (root?) nodes from Perlmonks onto Twitter.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    twitter may just be this years '8 track tape player' or the latest in a long line of internet 'fashion'... won't be long until advertising will probably make people flee to some other communication space ... in the meantime, would be dead simple for PerlMonks to take advantage of it.

    Instead of using it as just a place to have a broadcast firehose ... why not something a bit more personal and engaging e.g. humans tweeting .. I sometimes think the analogy of commentator (as in sports) works with tweeting, e.g. would be interesting to get perspective of whats going on with PerlMonks right now ... I would also recommend following all the people who follow you.

      shhh! must know info: cutlass2006 just cut one :)
