Borg on Twitter

The borg assimilated a twitter account. It can be followed at AngbandBorg.

You almost make me want to use twitter.

No kidding. I only do it so my business gets higher ranks on google. But since I am there, I might as well get a borg one. It actually makes since for the borg since so many people use the borg. Having tweets to notify them of updates is an efficient use of time.

I had exactly the same reaction as Nick
I've bookmarked the feed instead of creating a twitter account.
Nice idea, anyway, even if I'd prefer to follow an RSS feed.

That is an interesting point. I have never considered using an RSS feed. It might take a little more work than the twitter, but not too much. I have not yet setup or used any RSS feeds or tools. What recommendations do you have?

As I have never setup an RSS feed, I can't recommend any tool for that, sorry.
As for reading, I usually use the RSS tools provided by my web browser (FireFox, most of the time).

I have set up wordpress to run the borg page. I am still adding documents but it is operational now. I have told, but I cannot confirm that wordpress has RSS stuff built in. If that is the case then I suppose I am just a step or two away from getting the feeds up and running.

Any wordpress pros out there? Check out the borg site and give me some pointers.

People can just plug in the URL of the borg page into their feedreader and it will work fine. WordPress has feeds built in, so you don't have to do any work.
