Thanks Aiden.

that makes more sense. i see Klango has a twitter client, ---- I'll probably give that a try sinse the Klango ui is about as user friendly as it's possible to be, ---- in fact if the various twitter games are playable on klango, they might count as self-voicing audio games, ;D.


Beware the Grue!

Hi Dark,

Twitter is a microblogging service primarily, although it has its own API, so some developers have created games such as 140 mafia which utilise the platform. You do need to register, however, just like many other social networking sites, it is completely free to do so. The reason twitter is known as a microblogging service is that the maximum length of a post is 140 characters. you do have a kind of profile, however it is limmited compared to a site such as facebook. If you would like more informmation, go to
www.twitter.com

Also, email me off list if you would like to follow me if you decide to register for the service.

HTH.

Aiden

Hi.

There have been a few postings about twitter lately. I always assumed twitter was just another form of occasionally updated content, such as an rss feed, however if it's able to run games I'd guess this is different.

sinse Klango now has a twitter client, I'd be interested to know precisely what twitter is and how it works, ---- do you need to register? is it similar to facebook with a page and profile?

appologies if I seem amazingly dim here, ---- just put this down to my usual policy with anything computer related, ---- ie, I learn enough to allow me to do what I'm able to do, rather than learning things for their own sake, now however, twitter is encroaching into games land, ---- it's about time i found out!

I could of course just look up twitter on wikipedia, ----- but I well suspect I'll get a better explanation here.

thanks in advance.

Dark.
