Re: Proof of Concept: Adding Twitter And Friendfeed to Buddypress
I don’t want to confuse buddypress with the various microblogging tools (twitter, laconica, etc.) but Openmicroblogger.org has taken the Twitter Tools for WordPress plugin, for example, and made it work with their platform so that you can post to Twitter from within Openmicroblogger (much like how it works wth WordPress).
More importantly, the OMB platform lets you ‘subscribe’ to your Twitter friends or other users so that their tweets complete with Gravatar can appear in your stream on the OMB network of servers. Having this ability to ‘pull’ your subscribed network of users, over and above a lifestream of your own tweets or whathaveyou, whould make the ‘social’ plugin in Buddypress even more powerful. Hope I explained this in some manner of clarity.
