Community to launch "Twitter" staff feed!

We are just about to launch a new function on the front-page of the Community site. We have utilized a popular new technology called "Twitter" you can find out exactly what Twitter is by visiting this URL: http://twitter.com/
To quote the twitter site, twitter is the following:
"Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?
Why? Because even basic updates are meaningful to family members, friends, or colleagues—especially when they’re timely.
With Twitter, you can stay hyper–connected to your friends and always know what they’re doing. Or, you can stop following them any time. You can even set quiet times on Twitter so you’re not interrupted. Twitter puts you in control and becomes a modern antidote to information overload."

We are harnessing this technology on the community site to allow us (PlusNet) to have another means of communication with you guys but in a much more personal bite size way.
We are going to be releasing this to the open source community very soon and we are also looking at ways of allowing customers to add their twitter usernames to the Community site twitter feed Smiley.
Want to know more about how it works? You can see a very clever video on how it works here: http://www.vimeo.com/757146/
Thanks
Jonny
