    Re: Defcon Twitter

    Several options for twitter if you have a smartphone, I tried CeTwit and TinyTwitter so far, also Twitula all work well.

    At the moment, I give TinyTwit as the choice app. It lets you follow people easily, select a post and click timeline. It also has an audible alert for direct tweets,
    and allows you to set a variable refresh rate. 1min 4min 10min ect.

    The thing all 3 apps are missing is an audible alert for public posts.

    If anyone knows of something better Id like to know. Id rather leave this running in the background than set my phone to receive texts.

    Next year's uber-leet super-cool social networking application of choice will be called Twitball.

    I'd expect the same thing to happen with my Twitter timeline...

    There's a lot of overlap between Twitter and Dodgeball, however I don't know of anything on Dodgeball that's like the Twitter timeline (i.e. an inbox of all the messages your account has received)

    I'm with mfreeck. We had a decently successful Dodgeball service last year, and I don't want to go through the hassle of setting up another account without a compelling reason. Especially is Twitter is going to be down all weekend...

    That being said, my biggest problem with Dodgeball last year was the latency. Ten to fifteen minute delays (which wasn't uncommon during Defcon) were simply too great for the kinds of events people were trying to broadcast.

    I'm set up on twitter...worked pretty well during Shmoocon. There seem to be a bunch of these services that will cross post to a bunch of these twitter clones which might be an option to take care of everyone.
