To be fair, it doesn't take a genius to see the utility of Twitter for live feed updates. We tried to do something similar a few seasons ago when the BBReloader had an alert service. You could sign up your email or textmail address and we would send out alerts all summer long.

Who notes it was an idea before its time as Morty's was the only web site to fully recognize the potential...

Who notes that Mortyerites will be able to use Morty's Twitter feed to clue them in to when to use the Real Player time machine to go back and watch the feeds...

Are you going to put the date and time into the tweets, Fuskie?

People just have to remember if you use BBT to adjust the time machine for their own timezone.

For some strange reason, the phrase "Lie back and think of England" comes to mind.

<i>Are you going to put the date and time into the tweets</i>

Twitter posts tweets in relative time, as in XX minutes ago, so time will always be relative to the local time zone.

Fuskie
Who notes with only 140 characters to work with, posting a BBT fixed time may be difficult...

We are looking for a few good Twitterers who are interested in joining Team Morty and helping out with the updates this summer.

We are also looking for experienced Twitterers who can help advise us on how to get the most out of our Twitter account.

You don't need a mobile phone. All you need to do is sign up at www.twitter.com then go to www.twitter.com/mortystvbb11 and click follow.

You can read the Morty's TV BB11 live feed tweets directly from your Twitter home page, or direct Twitter to send them to your cell phone. You can even configure your mail reader, such as Outlook, to receive tweets as an RSS feed if you are familiar with those. For those who do not have unlimited text plans, having tweets sent to your phone may be expensive but for those with unlimited text plans, the Morty's TV BB11 Twitter Feed can keep you updated with the goings on in the house.

Fuskie
Who explains in a nutshell, Twitter is a service that allows you to follow the tweets (140 character message) of others and optionally allow others to follow your own tweets, although you can make your feed private so that only those who you approve will be able to follow you or you can choose not to twitter yourself at all...

So in preparation for Big Brother 11 on the Morty's TV Twitter feed, what kind of updates do y'all want? Just the results of competitions, nominations and PoV? Or do you want a regular updates? How about just big things like fights, streaking, nocturnal nasties? How many tweets per day should be the max? How many of you will receive your tweets on your phones and for those who are, do you have unlimited text plans?

Fuskie
Who wants to make the Morty's TV Twitter service the best possible for all you followers...

hmm... i think we should make a poll about how many tweets per day. i think 10 max sounds good. any more than that, and i don't think i'd add it to my phone.

im wondering about "spoilers" like who won HOH or is evicted since i dont know if i want that tweeted to my phone if i havent watched yet. but im not sure.

but definitely, for those with live feeds or BBAD, it might be a good idea to tweet if something especially exciting is happening.

It will also be REALLY good during endurance comps when Morty's goes crazy and the feeds too. it might be nice to have updates on that.
