Following Sun on Twitter
By identity on May 06, 2008
It was pure serendipity. Last weekend, I responded to a challenge posted on Sun's internal bloggers alias to find a way to provide an RSS feed of all the known Sun Microsystems Twitter users. Here's what I did ...
I am monitoring that wiki page and will add new entrants on that page to the sun_follow account. I also set up a new "planet" on planets.sun.com to provide another view of all the tweets from these folks.
This little exercise yielded the following links:
- Composite view of tweets of Sun employees. Subscribe to Atom feed.
- Twitter "planet" view of these tweets. Subscribe to Atom feed.
- The list of twitter accounts being followed.
Now for the serendipity ...
I didn't have the privilege to fly to California to participate in JavaOne this year. But I finished my little "Sun on Twitter" project just in time to monitor a rich stream of tweets from several Sun employees who were particpating in CommunityOne yesterday and the main JavaOne event today. Thank you fellow Sunnies, for your Twittering! And thanks for a interesting little set of technology for making this little project possible.
