This blog has just arrived on Twitter. Henceforth - with a bit of luck - my twitter feed will update automagically with title and URL of every post I make. One advantage of rolling your own blog code is that you can add stuff like this very easily...

I'm quite impressed with the Twitter API and I'm writing stuff to make my own twitter aggregator thingy. Compared to Facebook, which irritates me enormously in lots of ways, Twitter is a joy to tinker with and that may well in part explain why programmer people like it. I have to admit I'm not sure what the real use of it is beyond acting as a kind of very short RSS feed thingy but no doubt all will become clear as I use it more.
