Twitter Works - Sometimes

I started to publish on Twitter some days ago to not stay completely silent about the good stuff that is happening with KDE/openSUSE. Most of the time my posts even appear on other people's pages and in Twitter Search. According to the "Find People" function I don't exist though.


With Twitter being on and off etc., why not use (or any other provider)?

AFAIK it's very easy to just tell your account to forward all of your posts etc. to Twitter as well.

How does introducing an additional potential point of failure increase the reliability? :-) And the reach of alone is imo not big.

On the other hand, you could also *just* use and tell your Twitter buddies to make the switch. From what I could gather, is a lot more stable, plus you can choose the server (or build your own) that fits your needs perfectly.

Personally, I dislike microblogging, but if I'd have to do it, I'd rather use a FOSS and distributed version of it. Just as I prefer Jabber/XMPP over e.g. MSN. is somewhat to microblogging what Jabber is to IM.

Well, just an idea. If you're happy with Twitter, don't let me stop you :P
