Surely I've got better things to do?

Done some work on my "reply to this on twitter" functionality of the site, and have set it up for real authentication when I get the time. So now the "Twitter" link below this post should take you to /tweet/m13020 which grabs the short url of the post, an id number hashtag and takes you to your twitter page to reply. Not that sophisticated yet, but as I say I've put some placeholders in. See it on the blog, gig pages or venue pages. The main problem I have right now is just much of your 140 characters I've taken up already, what to do about that? I'm thinking I need my own unique / tinyurl type domain so I could combine these things. I guess I should drop the #m13020 as I can identify the post you meant from the url in there... maybe I'll do that now. Next stop what, remove the @pauly1?

The whole point of this is that I then have something else checking twitter for replies in this format and putting them back on the site again. Give it a go if you like2.

Yes I should have better things to do with my time, but the boy's sleeping, shopping and housework are done, dinner is on and I've even made a stew for lunches and one dinner in the week. Industrious, so rewarding myself with a sit down and, er, basically the same sort of thing I do from 9-5 everyday anyway.
