Like it or not, communication technology has changes in the last 2 years, and we are now virtually flooded with possible sources of communications. Personally, I have pretty much avoided them all, relying on good old-fasioned e-mail (geez, that sounds wierd!). But my smart phone has made a convenience out of what once seemed trite and intrusive.

I never considered signing up for a Twitter account before because 1) I had nothing important to report to the ether that anyone would care to be bothered with and 2) there was noby who's fleeting fragments of thought I needed to be bothered with.

But it occurred to me that there is a community that until two years ago I was always hungry to hear from and share with -- the Uru Community. Forums are great, but sitting down at a PC (or sneaking time during work) can be tiressome. So it seems to me that Twitter was custom-made for this purpose. Of course nothing will ever replace the forums for posting images, chat-logs, or lengthy discussions. But for announcements, in-the-moment comments, or timely in-cavern reporting, Twitter seems perfect -- I can get them or send them right from my iPhone.

The DRC got the ball rolling: http://twitter.com/drcsite
You can see a few others are already folowing the DRC, including J.D. Barnes. However I won't post their account information here, having not secured their permission (you can find them easily enough at the above link).

Here is my account: http://twitter.com/Montgomery_IC

My hope is to develope a purely IC Twitter community. Naturally, those who do not with to be strictly IC will also want to participate, but it would be nice to know who is and who is not IC. SO to that end I added IC to my name. You may wish to do the same.

Here I will keep an updated list of IC Twitter accounts. Please post your own if you would like me to add it to the list.

Spiff. I would also suggest someone start an Uru IC list on The Twitters, since that might be easier to follow/manage.

If/when Cyan manages to quiet down enough for someone to check their legal email, hopefully they'll approve my request to bring back my ResEng G.Buddell avatar, only without the ResEng, obviously ;). In which case, I'll probably start an IC twitter account under that guise.

Thanks for catching my mistake there! And I've added you to the list too. I'm watching this thread now so those of you with IC Twitter accounts can just post your usernames here too!

GREAT! I've created a fourth list because of you: https://twitter.com/OHB_IC/guilds

That will be for top-level news from each of the Guilds. the Guild of Greeters will be added shortly.
