i know you have reasons to want people to use twitter for it.. but it's sort of a silly way to make a quick chat. i'd like to see it come back as it was way back when.. though it was a total mess and about 10x more filled with bs than NSG haha
The problem with that was server performance. That sidebar loads something like a half million times per day, so it gets assaulted with traffic. The twitter widget makes it easy to manage because it goes through their servers.
Admittedly too, it was a bit of an experiment to see if people on here use twitter.
Personally so far I'd say we're getting pretty mediocre performance. Not sure if I love it... love the concept but I just get the vibe like NSers don't use twitter and the way it loops is a little weird.
If there's pow, ski it. If there isn't ski park.
Just don't stay at home when there's no snow and whine about park skiers.
