    Not sure how this will exactly work but here is the idea…

    Allow BP communities to microblog twitter/prologue style. In the profile member theme there could be another button called “?” where users can “tweet” or whatever it will be called.

    Then we could have a widget on the home page with all of the latest “tweets”.

    This could be useful for my travel blog for example. Mine could be called “Where are you?” or something similar and users can write where are travelling at the moment…

    Needs to be more refined buy you get the idea…

    yes? no?

    I don’t think a Twitter-like functionality will be added to the BP core but this can be done now with around 10 minutes of work.

    All you’d need to do is create a blog such as whereareyou.domain.com. Then add all existing users as authors and auto-add new users as authors to the blog (see this post for details on doing this, it only takes a minute). Finally install and tweak the prologue theme to suit your site. The updates users post to the blog will automatically show up on their profile like other blog posts.

    This is a really basic implementation of a “Twitter-like” functionality, but with a little tweaking this setup works really well.
