Twitter integration: Follow the nation?

Postby Charlotte Ryberg » Fri Jun 19, 2009 12:43 am

I have a twitter account that is dedicated to my nation and I have been wondering if one day, NationStates would be able to let NSG players follow nations that have a Twitter account associated with them?

Thanks.

It's an interesting, but probably pointless idea. For one, the Twitter craze is likely to die down within a year, and fall, just like most social networks do. Two, there's an NS RSS feed for your nation - there's almost certainly a third party RSS reader that can automatically connect it to a Twitter account.

I like the idea, but with my name, I'm probably biased. :lol:

Because Myspace fell and Facebook fell a year after they got popular. Twitter has been going strong since 2006. At the beginning of 2009, they had a 1382% increase in users.

I think it's a pretty neat idea, Charlotte. :blush:

The hashtag #NSG seems sparsely used. We could use this tag to communicate NS-related events on Twitter. Not #NS because it seems to relate to the Netherlands Railways.
