Follow Unsatisfactory Software on Twitter!

You can now follow @_unsatisfactory on Twitter!

Currently updates every day at 10am with the latest software releases/updates.

It's automated from the list on the front page of http://www.unsatisfactorysoftware.co.uk, so anything added there feeds through to Twitter the next morning (the delay is purely allow time for uploads to be authorised - stops people clicking links for things that don't yet exist)

Enjoy!

Wouldn't it be better to use RSS (an open standard not tied to any company) rather than Twitter (a closed standard tied to a particular company)?

(a) This is easier
(b) I can delay it because it's a scheduled import, rather than an RSS feed which would be live.
(c) You get an rss feed by default anyway (although Twitter don't seem to publicise these any more): http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/use ... reen_name=_unsatisfactory
(d) You can't follow RSS feeds on Twitter
(e) I was writing an automated feed for something else, and this is 90% the same code.
