Would you tweet your wins?

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

So, Linden Lab is trying to get all social with everything. Their latest effort is a scripting bridge between Twitter and Second Life. And I wonder, is this something that people would use?


I mean, really, I don't know. Would people find this useful?

What I could do is link your Twitter account to, say, En Garde. With the magic of OAuth, you wouldn't have to give me your Twitter password. You can simply authorize Procyon Games to post tweets to your account. And then, every time you won a game of En Garde, it would post a tweet to your account, saying who you beat, and your score, and a SLURL.

Would anybody find that useful?

I should point out that the Recent Games section of the Procyon web site already lists every game played in-world, so if you're looking for someone to fence with you can always go there and see who's been playing.

Okay, that's a big thumbs-down then!

Linden Lab is really promoting the heck out of this linkup between SL and Twitter. I wonder what people are going to use it for?
