Anyone can Twitter... you just need to register... just need an email and a unique username... and that is it...
Then once you are set up you can start searching for people to "follow" (subscribe to their 'tweets') and as well people can "follow" you.
You can set your privacy too, so that only people you allow to follow you can seer your messages.
You can also set up Twitter on your mobile phone.
I think the question was about automatic re-tweets. 22 is at 30+ home games and could tweet during the game (assuming you have one of those newfangled mobile qwerty-enabled thingamajigs). Can we set up something in the GMHockey twitter profile to automatically re-tweet? Maybe filter for specific keywords that we will all agree to use. For example, when I create a GDT I have to sign out as MrMontagoose, then sign in as GMHockey to tweet. It would speed things up if we could just tweet it as ourselves, maybe use a specific format with GMHockey in the tweet (e.g. "#Ottawa #Senators host the #Buffalo #Sabres tonight -- join the discussion at GMHockey.com: bitly link"). Then the GMHockey could filter for the GNHockey keyword and automatically re-tweet it.
Can this be done? Is there a risk of a tweet-storm if some of us set up similar automatic re-tweets?
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
