Now With Added Twitter Goodness!

17 November 2009 06:23

There are times when I feel guilty for not updating this weblog as often as I do those status updates on Facebook or Twitter. It's one thing stringing a few words together into a concise sentence that doesn't exceed the 140 character limit and one whole other thing putting together a few sentences into something meaningful and worthy enough for the reader to spend a few non-refundable minutes of his or her life reading it.

So being the geek I am, I quickly knocked up a piece of code to grab the last few updates from my Twitter account and have it displayed on the main page of this website. I initially toyed around with some of those ready-made Twitter widgets that you can just copy and paste the code over but the end result of it just made it seem so aesthetically wrong that it would've given the website self-esteem issues already with Twitter being on its turf. Besides, real geeks code, others rely on plug-ins.

With that out of the way, I'm gonna be sorting out MY own issues now.

That's called the Not-Invented Here Syndrome.
