Delphi (and Prism) Tweets of the Day

I've started a Delphi Tweet of the Day on Twitter... which is powered by Delphi.

Last week my friend and co-speaker at Delphi Developer Days (hint, there are still places available), Cary Jensen, started a Delphi Prism Tweat of the Day, on his twitter account at http://twitter.com/caryjensen.

Today while finishing preparing my Web Mashup talk for the Embarcadero DataRage conference (taking place next week over the web), I've created a Delphi Tweet of the Day (seems twitter says tweet and not tweat, but I'm far from sure). I did that on a separate twitter account than my personal one, at http://twitter.com/delphitweetday. Now what is different is that in my case I've written a Delphi application to collect and automatically publish to Twitter... which took only minutes to figure out thanks to their easy-to-use REST interface.

More about the application later. For now, there are only two small tweets... more will come (daily, I really hope). And next week during the conference I'll discuss the "Tweet of the Day" program, and probably also blog about it. Stay tuned.

Delphi and Prism Tweets of the Day 

Are you saying Twitter is powered by Delphi, or that
only your application is? I heard Skype is also
written in Delphi. Good!

"seems twitter says tweet and not tweat, but I'm far

Its "Tweet", as in one of the short sounds birds make
when they twitter.

Delphi and Prism Tweets of the Day 

Ken,

  Twitter is notably written in Ruby, and is seen as a 
showcase of Ruby power or of Ruby scalability issues, 
depending how who you talk to.

  My "tweet of the day" application, which I hope to 
make public soon, is written in Delphi and uses 
Twitter REST API.

Twitter isn't written in Delphi, but you're right that
the Windows client for Skype is.
