So Botball now has a twitter account. You can check it out at BotballRobotics. Tell your team to follow botball on twitter for updates.

Also, what does everyone think about having live score updates via twitter at competitions?

Well, I have personally vowed to never get a twitter account, but I'll subscribe via RSS/Atom. Good job!

I like the idea of live score updates via twitter. It would be great if I could integrate the feed with botguy on irc.

As funny as this sounds, I still don't have a twitter account even though I guess I do since I'm running the account right now.

At the moment, KIPR doesn't have extra man power to have someone do the live feed. Somehow it needs to be integrated into what they currently have. With what they have, you should be able to view their brackets over their local wireless network at the tournaments. This of course can only be done at a laptop. However, I still think giving instant updates via twitter so that any mobile device can view it is pretty cool. Now anyone with a smart phone can see what's going on. Plus giving announcements there might also be nice. Plus it'd be easier than scanning over the brackets page trying to figure out what is new and what isn't.
