Reg Hardware launches Twitter stream
Tweeting throughout the day
Site News Register Hardware is now Tweeting. Yes, in a desperate bid to get hip to the Web 2.0 vibe - the sound you hear in the background is The Register's Andrew Orlowski slapping his forehead in bewilderment - we've launched an (experimental) Twitter feed.
Pop along to twitter.com/reghardware and, if you've a Twitter account of your own - sign up if you haven't - you can follow our Tweets, posted and as and when we publish a new story, review or hands-on feature, such as our hugely popular (if we say so ourselves) Hacking the Apple TV article.
Twitter's good on the web, but it's better on your phone - we recommend TwitterFon on the iPhone - allowing you to get updates on the move.
Why do we call it 'experimental'? Because we're trying it out for size, and we want to tailor the feed to best meet your needs. Are Tweet updates useful to you? Would you like other content included? Let us know what you think - and what you'd like to see from Register Hardware in the future.
And it Twitter's not your thing, no problem. We'll continue to update Register Hardware's homepage throughout the day, and still offer all our regular, established update systems, from our daily and weekly newsletters to our RSS feeds.
Followed the feed briefly but if all you're going to do is just tweet new page headlines then RSS is a better way of getting updates, it's just clutter on the Twitter page.
I'd suggest either have someone responding to questions/comments about the reviews or adding extra content, otherwise it's not worth you bothering with.
Reg promoting Jobsian Orwellsian code-spunk? Noooo....
Twitter me this, twitter me that, who's afraid of the big 2.0
Ill just stick to my RSS feed of TheReg rather than feed of just the hardware via a third party site, thanks anyway!
79 followers already!
OK, these are by definition 79 of the most boring people in the world.
But it's Twitter-tastic.
Mindless bitching about twitter.
