    I'm wondering how many people here use Twitter? I've had an account for a while, but just started to use it more regularly.

    I have to admit I'm still figuring out how it could be used best, but it already seems to be a nice way to learn about random things that happen and I even (re)connected with a few people because of it.

    So anyway, I'm attilam, feel free to add me :)

    I just can't get myself to use it. One more thing to be a bit obsessive about. ;)

    I have an account but didn't use it very much (forgot I had one actually :oops: )
    I'll try to use it more often now (and will talk in English in stead of Dutch now :p )

    I've had one for a while, but I don't seem to have much use for it. I try and stay active, but I find most of my updates would usually consist of "Working..." and then later in the day "Still working..." :?

    I use Twitterific, which makes it much more like AIM... without the "instant" or "AOL" parts. :D

    I use it as I have a few friends that are regular and keep me posted about their activity. I think Plurk is cooler but not so easy to update.

    I use netvibes interface online to update and now twitterific on iPhone.

    Maybe Ping.fm is an easy tool to organize your social networks...

    Current beta code: thispingsforyou

    I'm http://twitter.com/kelihlodversson, but since I'm not currently working for Unity Technologies, if I manage to post anything it will probably not be much Unity-related.

    p.s.Thanks for that ping.fm link, thomas

    Oh wow! Ping.fm looks awesome! Thanks, Thomas!

    I'd love to try it in action, but Twitter seems to be "over capacity" again...

    We're twittering about our new project here: http://twitter.com/blurst . The Blurst account follows individual Flashbang guys if you'd like to know more (sometimes on topic, sometimes what we ate or whatever).

    We have the Unity Asset Server and our Subversion repositories all linked in to the Blurst twitter account, too.

    Hey, cool ... I haven't tweeted for a couple of days but it's great to the have some of the community in there! I tweet about this'n'that (from "just went for a walk" to "working on Level XY right now" to "some random thoughts").

    Congratulations ... and welcome!!!

    I've recently jumped on the Twitter bandwagon, but it's only of interest if you'd like seeing someone vent their frustrations at converting a PS3 game to iPhone using Unity, whilst living on a small Greek island....

    Wow, cool ... since it became kind of difficult to actually follow all the people I'm following, I set up Thunderbird to fetch the tweets via RSS and created a couple of different groups. One, of course, is "Unity" - and I've got 13 Unity-twitterers in there.

    That's cool! :)

    www.twitter.com/brokenpoly


    :) still haven`t really found out what`s the point though

    Been twittering for about 9 months now. Don't post too much VG stuff on it but I've been subscribed to Flashbang's automated twitter feed for a while.

    Sheeple number 1 million and 2. Here comes the flood of juicy Unity Technologies tidbits... like what we had for lunch today... most likely fish, chicken, and some sort of Danish mystery salad ;)

    Beets, orange rinds, black olives, raisins, feta cheese, and just for fun let's throw some sesame seeds on top of that over a bed of couscous ;)

    Maybe my palette needs to evolve a little bit more to truly appreciate this fine Danish cuisine ;)

    *mmm, liverwurst patty with mushrooms... drool*

    Is it still from the same place? I was mostly impressed by the variety of food. (and now this thread has become about eating habits in Unity HQ... the mention of Twitter alone causes conversation to break down even in other places.

    Yeah, some people even start treating blog-comments chat.

    Um, sorry "blog-comments >>like<< chat" (with some it's even so bad they forget they could edit while they're still writing a posting).

    I'm absolutely super-certain that Twitter is going to ruin the world. See also:
    Social websites harm children's brains: Chilling warning to parents from top neuroscientist

    :twisted:

    ... guess my brains are already fried - my max attention span is about 30 seconds now [checks last 200 new tweets "real quick"]. Um, what was I talking about??? But anyways, I'll integrate Twitter into my game to do something really useful with it, hehe (actually, my plans are more integrating my game into Twitter but that's a secret, so don't talk about it) ;-)

    I'm on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/slippydouglas. I tend to tweet about tech/code/game-related stuff.

    The indie game company I'm part of is at: http://twitter.com/nectargames. The NectarGames account is mostly for stuff related to things we blog about (Unity, our Unity project, other indie game dev news).

    I just added all of you via the NectarGames account; I'll likely add some of you via my SlippyDouglas account, too (if I haven't already)!
