Like you didn't see that coming.
I promise to stop right there.
Getting it all together today, I think I went over the 150 tweets/hour/IP because everything on both servers stopped working and spontaneously started back up again a little later. To get around this limit, I'm running EXP IV's tweets through an anonymous proxy in Indonesia.
Anyway, you can follow EXP IV here. You can also just peek over there to the right if you want because I changed the Twitter updates feed to EXP IV.

I have no fucking idea why, but I finally Twitterfied BOT House. Now, everything you say when you chat at BOT House is sent to Twitter.
It took about three hours total to hack it all together and it was a lot of fun when it finally started working. It's fundamentally just Chat-O-Matic with a Twitter feed. It works exactly the same way.
Unfortunately, there is a 150 Tweets per hour maximum. Hopefully they won't get pissed and ban me.
The original idea behind Twitterfication was to get the converstion inside UT to be reflected on The Map (which has been working flawlessly for months now). It would be a little difficult to do with all of the servers, but it is doable.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
