It would be neat to have a field for Twitter user ID in the profiles.

I'll try, it, have never twittered, but I have a feeling it will be always out of date.

I'm confused, I don't see any twitter thing in my profile to play with.

I really suck at blogging, and even with Twitter I don't get the personal touch of telling somebody what am I doing right now. Anyway, I like the idea.

Look at your user preferences, the form now includes an option for adding your Twitter ID. Can I has Facebook or Windows Live? [Big Grin]

There's just a new field to add your Twitter username to, nothing really interactive.

Now I'm checking profiles to see who has added theirs. [Applause]

Any chance we could get a little Twitter icon next to the profile/homepage/pm buttons? I'm just too lazy to check people's profiles... [Smile]

Now, for all that is holy, do not post /too/ many updates from your iPhone.
i.e. Don't do what Penny Arcade documented!

(Then again, I have *zero* interest in Twitter, so I'm just asking that you preserve other people's sanity. [Wink] )

I've never got the Twitter phenomenon. It's like it implements the one feature I detest about MSN: the ability to give me second-by-second updates on what you're doing. I use a text-based msn client, and the number of 'logged off', 'logged on' I see so everyone sees some melodramatic bullshit teenager's whining is unbelievable.

I've started just deleting them from my list.

I don't do twitter either, but there is one I follow: a multi-hand story updated once a day (usually). If I want the story of an ordinary, overall boring life, I can look at mine. I prefer the creative versions. (And I'm not talking about the "lying to make my life looks great" type of creative.)

It's not stalking if they follow you back.

Then it's mutual stalking.
