Tweets and Retweets #1

Updates about myself and the Delphi world, via tweets I posted and tweets I retweeted. Possibly the first of a regular series.

Since I need a way to share links and short pieces of information rapidly, and in most cases I do tweet about these links (or repost tweets by others), I've decided to start posting updates about myself and the Delphi world, via tweets I posted and tweets I retweeted. Of source, this is a duplicate if you follow me on twitter (which I encourage you to do).

Since I plan turning this post into a regular series, I made the effort of writing a Delphi application that goes into my twitter stream, follows retweets, get the images and the proper links, and produces the HTML you see below. I can certainly make the program available, if anyone is interested. Needless to say, this is not a complete list, but I pick from the full list the most relevant "tweets and retweets".

 PS. Don't forget my Delphi REST webinar later today.

Did you write a tool to create this post, or was it a 
manual process?  I've been wanting to do the same and am 
curious if you found a good solution.

Jim, 

yes I wrote a Delphi program for that. Only, the HTML 
structure is hard coded for now, so it is not very 
flexible.

Interesting that while people used to tweet about 
their new blog posts, now they are blogging about 
their tweets!

You'd better watch you don't end up in an infinite 
loop! ;-)

Personally, although I've spent a few weeks reading 
tweets on several different occasions, and I 
occasionally tweet myself for various purposes on 
various accounts, I just can't seem to stick with it. 
I get bored with the inanity and lack of interesting 
info. Whereas I could spend hours reading my blog 
subscriptions through google reader on the phone or 
PC.
